Would you switch to Google keep?

ernard

Google's new note-taking application, Google Keep, has gone live. I've been using Evernote for well over a year, and am happy with it, but I'm all for simplification and Keep could potentially tie together my notes, calendar, email, photos and Google docs. On the other hand, that's putting a lot of eggs in a single Google basket. What do you think - stick with Evernote or consolidated things with Google Keep?

If you like Evernote, I'd say you should keep using it. I totally understand the value of simplification, but (to partially quote you) I'm all for not being too reliant on any single platform or vendor.

While the simplification aspect definitely is tempting, over-reliance can lead to problems down the road, as some users of Google Reader might attest.

I'll stick with Evernote. I already use some of Google's other services, and I'd rather not get hooked into another one. Evernote works very well, I've never had any problems with it. And it works across all of my computers and devices.

After seeing your question, I checked keep out for myself. I also use Evernote, and from what I saw from a short look at Keep, there is nothing compelling me to switch. The Android App for Keep isn't compatible with my phone, and Evernote is, so that was a deal breaker right away. The good part is the integration with other Google services, assuming you use them. Also the UI on the desktop is pure Google in the traditional sense: clean, simple, functional. The screenshots look nice for the app, but as I said, I can't check that for myself. If I wasn't already using Evernote, and happy with it, I would try it. But I am, so I won't. Also, Christopher makes a good point about Reader - what Google giveth, Google can taketh away. And often does.

While Evernote would've been my preferred choice i will be divorcing it to marry the new bride - Google Keep for obvious reasons.
