Nimbus Note vs
Google Keep

Here is an in-depth comparison of all platforms to help you understand their 

differences and decide which fits you besta

The best alternative
to Google Keep is Nimbus

Google Keep is a popular and easy note taking tool. You can use it to create and edit notes and lists, organize information, set reminders and shortcuts and share data with other users by giving them access to your notes. 

Google Keep is available as:

• web version;

• mobile application for Android, Chrome OS and iOS;

• plugin for Google Chrome browser.


Practical features of the service vary based on its type. For example, the web version provides only basic functions (creating notes, setting reminders, inserting images), while the applications for Android, Chrome OS and iOS devices have a wider functionality.

Nimbus Note

Nimbus Note is a great alternative to Google Keep, available in one free and two commercial versions  It is not just a compact mobile app like Google Keep, but a feature-rich cross-platform service compatible with different browsers and Windows, Android, MacOS and iOS operating systems.

 

Stable and flexible, Nimbus Note is just as good as Google Keep in terms of basic technical parameters, and surpasses it in most respects – for example, when it comes to data search or screen recording, workflow control or public page customization.

Editor features

The Nimbus Note editor is designed to work with any files: simple text notes and combined documents, tables, lists, pictures, video and audio content. 

 Some of its functions are identical to those of Google Keep (insert images, task lists, checkboxes). At the same time, many options provided by even the simplest, basic version of Nimbus Note – for example, advanced formatting or text selection – are absent in Google Keep applications. 


You will not be able to add a table to Google Keep or use the web clipper in Google Keep. Working with links and complex objects (toggles, bookmarks, hints), saving a page in one click, selecting and saving fragments of PDF documents – all this is not available in Google Keep, but it is in Nimbus Note.

Branding

Branding and customizing newsletters and public pages is one of those useful options that you can use to make your label or product more recognizable and your business more successful. 

 

Replace the Nimbus Note logo with your own logo in the program interface – and it will appear on your public documents and pages. You can customize newsletters and connect a custom subdomain (CNAME). All this is possible thanks to the white label concept, which does not exist in Google Keep, but is fully implemented in Nimbus Note.

How do you know if a note-taking
app is really worthwhile?

Assess your level of comfort when working with it. A comfortable and well-thought interface, stability, accessibility and easy synchronization – these are the key signs of a good application. 


Nimbus Note fully meets this. Google Keep is more suitable for creating quick notes or fixing thoughts and ideas that came to you during the day. There are no databases or folders in Google Keep. You can only systematize your notes with labels or color coding.


Nimbus Note is ideal for working with complex documents and projects since it has a clear and understandable hierarchy of folders, navigation by tags and document content, libraries of templates, the ability to set reminders and offline note creation with automatic synchronization on all devices.

“I have been using different mobile note apps for years, and I can say with confidence that Nimbus Note is one of the best. Notes, lists, drawings – the simplest products have it all. But Nimbus Note has a lot of more interesting and complex features, unlike Google Keep (folders, video sharing etc), and yet it remains accessible.”

If you decide to switch from Google Keep to Nimbus Note, the easiest way to transfer the notes is manually. But if you have a lot of notes and want to save all of them at once, transfer the data to Google Docs, and then export from docx to Nimbus Note. Do not hesitate to contact technical support: we try to help all the new users when transferring data from other platforms and make the migration process as easy and pleasant as possible. Be prepared for a slight reorganization of structure, which in the first couple of days might cause some discomfort. But once the adaptation period is over, you will have more features at your disposal, which means a smoother workflow and better results.

Use the trial version of Nimbus Note to get acquainted with all the features of the application and try them for yourself: the first 14 days will be free. If at the end of this period you realize the basic features of the application are enough to work on all your tasks, you can continue to use Nimbus Note absolutely free of charge. But if other more specific features – collaboration, white labels, full page screenshots or customer portals – are important to you, you can switch at any time to the Pro or Business plans, which have it all.
