Used to be 4.5, now only a 3

I have used Keep for several years now. I keep all sorts of minutia that I need to know and it really comes in handy. However, I use it primarily for my ongoing grocery list. I LOVE the way I can make a list, check the items off while shopping, and then they are still on the list for my next shopping event. I review the checked off items and uncheck them to create my new list. This saves a ton of typing time, plus jogs my memory of items I need to buy. I also like how I can start typing BA and Bananas and Basil come up from my checked-off list so I can then uncheck Bananas to add it to my work-in-progress list. It automatically syncs between my phone, desktop, and iPad, which I love.

The only improvement that I can see is that I would like the ability to sort the list alphabetically. I have 200+ items on my checked-off list and I wish I could sort.

The BAD NEWS is that the touch sensitivity on this app has completely been whacked out. I used to be able to touch a list and it opened immediately. Now, I have to touch it 4 or 5 times and sometimes it still doesn’t open. I have changed NOTHING on my phone or iPad. Nothing else makes me touch it several times, but after the update 2 days ago, Keep is becoming unusable. As much as I have loved this app, I would give it zero stars right now. Please change it back.

Overall it is increased team productivity and communication on projects as well as personal issues by the grocery list and recipes. Sometimes especially later at night lists/notes won’t update with collaborators/other devices. My friends and some are staying up late one night and I had a couple notes for my product manager he lives in LA and I in New York, So he was a couple hours behind me. But that really didn’t make a difference because by the time he had gotten my notes it was already late his time. Sometimes it takes up to 20 minutes just for one slight alteration I’m at note. Now it’s not as important but the voice recorder needs a bit of work as well. For some reason it doesn’t continuously record, after a couple moments of talking it automatically stop recording. Instead you should make it something more like apples talk to type function where it will continuously record until you stop it as well as keeping the auto. Pr just have an option to make it manually via press+hold.

Used to love this app

I used to love this app. My wife and I kept a shared grocery list as well as others. The grocery list, by far, gets the most use. For the last year and a half, it has become pretty buggy for me. Lists would disappear, updates made by one collaborator would not show up for the others on the list. Now, lately, I can’t seem to add an item to my grocery list without the app crashing. I’ve closed the app on my iPhone, restarted it, shut the app down, hard booted my phone, created a copy of a list and deleted the original to see if one was corrupted, you name it, I’ve tried it. Now, not only does the app crash most of the time, when I do successfully add a line item, instead of keeping it where I added it, Keep tosses the line item down to the bottom of the list. I’m not able to move the item in the list order now as well. I’ve taken great pains to order the grocery list to coincide with the layout of my local grocery store. It’s WAY more efficient that way. Now it’s becoming an aggravation. I’ve got over 300 items in my list. Starting over would be a headache. I’m not really interested in using one of the other shopping apps that force a subscription or demand an account be set up for all members to share. I really liked the way Google Keep used to work. Google! Please fix this app!!
For what it’s worth, I’m using an iPhone 6+ with iOS 11.3.whatever the latest is.
