Tech Tip: Google Keep and Any.Do

Tech Tips
Issue 20

This Tech Tip will look into organizational tools.  I have been living with Google Keep and Any.Do for a few weeks now.  I do not know how I could live without them any more.  They are both great (and very different) tools!  I use them bot on my Android phone and with Google Chrome.  Any.Do also has an iPhone/Pad app but Google Keep does not (yet).  Check them out and see what you think.

Google Keep is a great organizational "Note Pad" tool.  It syncs with your Android phone and Google Drive.  I have been using it for a few weeks now and find is easy to use and nice to have.  I am still a huge fan of Evernote, but Google Keep is more of a "List Making" app for me.  The app on the phone is easy to add lists and ideas (even with the voice command) and the convenience of having access to it through Google Drive just seals the deal for me.  There are tons of other options out there, but I really like this one for simple "thing I need to remember to do".

Any.Do is another great app.  My other new favorite (even used more than Google Keep in my life) is Any.Do.  This is a "To Do" list that can be used on your IOS/Android/Chrome Extension and they all sync well together.  I like that with Any.Do you can add a reminder, detailed notes, and put them into folders.  There are different ways to view within the app as well.  It also plays well with Gmail and allows you to set up notes directly from an email while you are reading it.  I access this app numerous times a day recommend looking into it.
