I am using Evernote as a quick note taker. Google is evolving a simple tiled version of quick cloud record keeping that nests nicely with your Google Drive account.
The simple interface allows you to type a note, dictate a message that is translated and stored as text with the audio file or shoot a photo.
Your information is automatically stored to the cloud as you create it so it doesn’t have to be saved.
Colors can be added to a note
You can create a list in a note that you can check off as you complete.
Notes can be shared with other resources on your mobile device like sending it as an email.
There is a widget for Google Keep.
While logged into your google account you can view your Google Keep information along side of your Drive documents at https://drive.google.com/keep/
