Parrots really are amazing creatures.
Cornell researchers say that baby green-rumped parrots learnt their own name, as well as those of their family, while still in the nest.

Are there any Evernote to Google Keep converts out there?  I was looking into the idea of switching.  I mean, why not give Google just EVERYTHING, right?  ;)

Anyway, one of the things I would miss is the idea of separate Notebooks (or folders or categories).  Keep doesn't seem to have anything like that other than basic color coding of notes.  Is there a function I'm missing?  Or as converts do you even miss it?  Is searching enough for you?

Thanks for the feedback everyone!  It sounds like you all have pretty much come to the same conclusion that I did.  Google Keep for "post-it" type notes, Evernote for the heavy lifting, and Google Docs/Drive for the complicated stuff (especially for collaboration).  I was seeing if I could simplify my life a bit but it looks like you really do still need separate tools here.  But it makes sense...  Chances are one tool that tried to do ALL these things wouldn't necessarily do it all well.

I really still wish Google Keep had a way to categorize types of notes a little better.  I sent it in as a feedback suggestions.  Figured it couldn't hurt!

I also use Our Groceries for shopping lists.  Allows you to sync across devices with other people.  So if someone at home updates the list after a peek in the fridge then you get the update at the store.  LOVE that feature.  And it keeps things you've bought to add to the list which makes standard shopping lists easy to rebuild for trips to the store.  Just thought I'd throw that out there for anyone interested!  I wouldn't use it for to-do lists...  though you kind of could.  But it's great for shopping lists.  The ads in the free version are totally non-intrusive but there is a Pro version as well.

Thanks again for the feedback!

Brothers reunited.  Two peas in a pod.  :)  Cooper's beak still has a long way to go but we decided to put him back in the big cage with his brother, Sheldon.  They couldn't be happier.

Based on an app Jason once either reviewed or used in the Arena once I had been using Clean Master on my devices.  I feel like they've gone overboard with their most recent update and the app is getting annoying.  Does anyone have any similar apps they would recommend.  Free or paid...  Just want good apps.

Agreed about Clean Master. It is why I haven't been using it.

Thanks!  They are a pair of cuties.  But still oh so nippy.  lol  I sure hope they eventually grow out of that.  Cooper has gotten pretty cuddly during his time of beak regrowth.  We can actually handle him more because he can't bite.  Kind of ironic.  But they are just babies.  Will be two next month.  So hopefully they will calm down as they get older.  :)
