Google Keep – Best free task management software I ever saw, actually, it’s not only for managing daily to-do lists, but it also supports to add drawings, images, notes, checklists with cute background color, however, it only works on Google Chrome browser, Android, iPhone, and yes, no official desktop version. But, Don’t worry, here are two Google Keep Desktop Editions you can use without extra setups.
If you are looking for Google Keep for Desktop, I have to say Google doesn’t offer such desktop client officially yet, however, using Google Keep on your Windows 10, 8, 7, Mac or Linux desktop isn’t a dream.
Moreover, use it as a Desktop Sticky Note App!
Hurry up, Let’s find out how to use Google Keep on the Desktop without hassles, most importantly, NO NEED EXTRA SETUPS!
Just download the Portable Google Keep Desktop Edition from Github, decompress the zip file, launch the app, and then login with your Google account. That’s all!
1. A much-like Desktop Sticky Note APP
This Keep Desktop App for Windows / Mac was created by rhyswilliamsza; the current software version is 1.0.0
What I like:
- The window can be shrunk as small as a Sticky Note type.
What I Dislike:
- The Mac version is having issues with the login typing bar, flicks all the time. I would suggest you use the second one if you are using Mac OSX.
2. Another Desktop Edition with Shortcut Key
Another Desktop Client for Windows, Mac, and Linux, packaged with Electron, the project created by andrepolischuk. Current Version: 0.1.5
What I like:
- Toggle to the full screen using Hotkey: Ctrl+H
- Open Notes, Reminders, Archive, Trash using: Ctrl+1/2/3/4 (For Windows)
- Remember window size and position.
- Better use experience in Mac OSX.
