Google Keep gets visual overhaul, searchable images, trash, & more

Google Keep, Google’s app for capturing ideas and note taking, gets an update today that introduces a visual overhaul in addition to a couple new features. Among the changes in the app, users can now search for text printed in images, a new action bar that changes colors depending on the color of the note, a trashcan to access deleted notes, and the ability to make copies of notes. You’ll also notice in the screenshots above that the entire app and navigation has been given a bit of a refresh that brings it up to date with some of Google’s other newly updated mobile apps. The update is yet to roll out to Google Play but should be hitting your device any minute now. (via AndroidPolice)
