Google Keep gets a new update, UI tweaks and more

by: Andrew GrushApril 2, 2014


Google Play Movies isn’t the only app getting an update today, as Google Keep is now introducing an update to V2. So what’s new here? Like with Play Movies, the change-log hasn’t been updated just yet, but here’s some of the changes noted by Gapps Early:

  • Searchable images – find printed text in images
  • List Settings – Set where new or checked items go
  • Trash – Keep things trashed a little longer

Aside from this, we are hearing reports that the UI has also been tweaked with the action bar going yellow. There’s also said to be some changes to the sidebar and likely at least a few bug fixes as well.

Unfortunately, this is a staged rollout so it may take a little bit before it reaches your device. To check to see if an update is waiting for you, you’ll want to head on over to Google Play. For those that have already grabbed the update, any other changes worth noting?

    I find this app to be very useful, but I have problems with widget.

      My widget works fine. I also agree though, that Keep is very useful.

        even better if you use several Android phones.
        And my widget works perfectly fine, too.

        Sometimes when I restart my phone I have reapply the widget.

    I love the new design that Google Play and now Keep are using. The design of the side menu and the colorful action bar that changes colors look amazing, I hope next Android version (and all gapps) follow this design language
