We are going to discover 6 Google Keep tricks that maybe you did not know about.
The incredible utility of photo scanning in Google Keep
Has it ever happened to you that you have something important written by hand in a notebook and it gives you a terrible laziness to pass it to your mobile? Well, with Google Keep you can scan that image and pass it to text automatically. It achieves this thanks to OCR technology, capable of detecting text in images and passing it to a note.
Of course, it must be text that is understood to perfection and whose photo is well captured, without reflections or other effects that may interfere with how it is read. To do this, you have to make the photo within the application itself and then choose “Saved image text”. If the text has the characteristics that we mentioned before, it would be already!
How to recover deleted notes in Google Keep
As in many other applications, chats and files are deleted by sliding to the right or left, a gesture that is too easy to make without realizing it. And if this is what happens to you with one of your notes or tasks created, do not worry: even if it disappears, you can find it in your side panel, in the “Archived notes” section.
Once there, you can delete them permanently. Or not? Well, not at all! You will still have another week to retrieve it from the Google Keep bin before it disappears forever.
Add reminders of tasks and / or notes
Notifications in Google Keep There are notes and tasks that, as we point out, fall into oblivion. So, are they worth something? That’s why one of the best features of Google Keep is reminders. You can choose between two types: typical reminders of date and time and those of place. The latter are super useful: for example, you can put the location of the supermarket that when you arrive you remember that you have to buy oranges. Do not you think it’s great?
