Bundled Notes is like Google Keep on steroids with added to-do list capabilities (Update: Web app beta)

I've been searching for the perfect note-taking app for a long time. I like Google Keep for its simplicity, but that's also its biggest crux. It's missing a few too many features to become my one-stop solution. Evernote, on the other hand, is too blown up for me. It feels sluggish and overloaded with features I'll never need (at least that was the case when I last used it). Bundled Notes, a new app created by indie developer Xavier Tobin, might become the perfect middle ground for me and might even replace my to-do app along the way. It's still in beta, but it's en route to becoming a great cross-device solution for notes and project management once it goes stable.

The best free and open-source alternatives to Google Keep on Android

While not every app has a great free and open source alternative (thanks, Google Maps), to-do lists don't fall into such a category. If you've been using Google Keep and want to find a service less beholden to our data-hoarding overlords, you're in luck. Even cloud sync is possible without buying into Google or another major corporation's note-taking platform, believe it or not. And really, do you need millions of data points and industry-leading artificial intelligence to make a glorified text editor bulleted lists? (The answer is "no.")

Google announces Assistant integration with Keep to-dos and lists, for the fifth time (Update: Live for all)

Google Assistant's ability to manage lists has been... less than ideal. When Assistant first went live in 2016, it could add items to a shopping list, which then appeared in Google Keep. That was a nice start, but then Google decided to move the shopping list to the Home app with integration for Google Express (now Google Shopping). At long last, Assistant is finally receiving first-class support for notes and lists... maybe. Fingers crossed.

[Update: Web rollout] Google Keep rolling out dark mode for some users [APK Download]

Google has been very busy updating its apps with dark themes lately. The search app itself currently has a half-broken dark mode for some users, and services like Google News, Messenger and Calculator have had it in a functioning state for a while now. All of this is happening in preparation for Android Q's system-wide theme, but of course, users on earlier versions of the OS also profit from it. The latest app to receive dark mode is Google Keep, and we've got some screenshots courtesy of tipster Kreeper.

Google Keep hits 500 million installs on the Play Store

Google Keep is probably the best note-taking app available for Android right now. It's a great way to keep track of things you need to remember, especially given that all of your notes appear on all of your devices because everything is tied to your Google account. Keep has just hit 500 million Play Store downloads, which is no small feat.

Google Assistant notes and lists are live for some, still no Keep integration though

Google has been promising proper list and note integration in Assistant for months now, and we've seen hints of it even before that, but today brings us just a little bit closer to that promise being fulfilled. Both note and list support is rolling out to Assistant (on phones and Google Homes) now, but you can't pick a third-party app to manage them just yet. So if you're itching for the Google Keep integration, you may need to be a bit more patient.
