Check out Google Keep - one of my favorite tools for productivity!
Wish you could have your to-do list with you all the time? Now's a good time to get reacquainted with Google Keep. Launched this day last year, Keep syncs your notes across your phone, tablet and computer, so you’ll remember what you need to get done regardless if you’re on the go or at home. Find it in Google Play:  #TBT
