Chris Brogan turned me onto using Google Keep to organize my thoughts and my to-do lists. One of the features that I like about Google Keep is the option to set location-based reminders. When I create a reminder note I have the choice of setting a time reminder or a location reminder. Just about any location that is recognized by Google Maps will be recognized by Google Keep. That means that if I want to set a reminder to pop-up when I arrive at school, I can do that. Your Android device must have location services enabled in order for the location-based reminders to work.
Applications for Education
As the new year begins many students will be making the resolution to get organized. Google Keep is a good Android and Chrome app that can help students keep track of important tasks and appointments.
