Google notified me yesterday they’d updated Keep, their note-taking application that I love to use. The update is that certain note settings are now applied to all lists. Among these:

  • Add new items to the bottom
  • Move checked items to the bottom


I think this is a step backward. While I’d have applauded these being default list behaviors, I don’t think they should be global. I’ve had several occasions where I want one list to move checked items to the bottom, and another to keep them where they are. Likewise with where new items are added.

I’m don’t why Google decided to remove a feature that was, as far as I knew, working fine.

Agree? Say so on the Google forums!
