Google Keep finally lands for Apple users, as iOS app debuts

On this week’s new edition of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, a listener-mail question got us talking about smartphone ecosystems, and the extent to which users feel locked-in to one particular platform as a result. The impact there varies based on the ecosystem and the platform we’re talking about, and some of the companies behind those ecosystems are working harder than others to bring their services to a wider audience. With that on the mind, it’s only fitting that this afternoon we get word of the latest service to cross platform boundaries, as Google Keep comes to iOS.

If you’re already an Android user you may be familiar with Keep, Google’s cloud-powered note-taking solution that handles to-do lists, lets you store short audio messages, and even handles visual reminders with photo support. The Android version first debuted two-and-a-half years ago, and now it’s finally time for Keep to land for the iPhone and iPad.

Even for an initial release, the iOS edition of Keep appears to have the majority of features intact, including all the cross-media note-taking options we just mentioned, as well tools to share those notes with other users and collaboratively edit them. Give it a look-see for yourself and check out how it compares to the updated Notes app in iOS 9.
