The good news is that Google is now rolling out some interesting updates to make this great little app even better.

The update adds the ability for Google Keep to remind you of important tasks and errands by time and location, as their blog explains:

Keep works with Google Now to remind you of your grocery list when you walk into your favourite grocery store, and nudges you on Thursday night to take out the trash.

To get started, select the “Remind me” button from the bottom of any note and choose the type of reminder you want to add. You can add time-based reminders for a specific date and time, or a more general time of day, like tomorrow morning. Adding a location reminder is incredibly easy too—as soon as you start typing Google Keep suggests places nearby.

There’s also a new new navigation drawer, which lets you view all upcoming reminders in one place, as well as the ability to swiftly switch between your accounts.

A final update lets users add existing photos from their Gallery to a Google Keep note in addition to  taking a new one.

The new update is gradually rolling out in Google Play, and available now on the web at http://drive.google.com/keep and in the Chrome App.
