I'm trying it right now. Dragged all my notes from abandoned DEVONnote. Looks beautiful and works great. Search is excellent, as good as in DEVONnote, and even better.

Or just use the Notes app in iOS/macOS. :)

Have you ever thought of doing an Android client. I would buy the system in a flash if you did.

The support pages say you can put any type of file in Keep It and have them sync, but I can't seem to sync Scrivener projects. This, despite the fact that updates to cater for Scrivener have appeared in release notes.

It gets stuck on "Downloading from iCloud..." and "Preparing to index items..." again :(

Love Keep It and its iOS counterpart. The developer has been working on versions of this application for years. He consistent;y updates with new features and bug fixes. The compact mode is just what it needed. Give it a try, I think you'll be very pleased. ??????????

Seems like a nice solution; however the need to buy a subscription to get the features that I'd take for basic capabilities makes a no-go to me. DEVONthink Pro may look ugly in comparison, yeah -- but it's quite a piece of software for the buck.

1.3 is a great update - except that the "activity" window seems stuck with the message "Preparing to index items"

Nice and simple app. However, it seems that the items can be synced only via iCloud. No Dropbox or other options. No backup options.
Also, the type of item cannot be changed (for example from plain text to rich text) and the items cannot be encrypted.

Keep It allows me to store all of my notes for work, documents that I want to refer to later, and images/links that I want to keep organized with projects that I am working on. I was using the built-in "Notes" app for Mac before using this app, and Keep It offers a plethora of awesome features, but I never felt like any of them were thrown in there for no reason or that they didn't add value to the app, each one has its place. For example, I LOVE using tags on my notes. I attend a lot of meetings at work and being able to tag meeting notes so that I can view them by department all at once makes my life very easy. No more "Where exactly did I put that note from that meeting again?" moments, which I really am happy about. The developer is active and keeps making improvements to the app, you can't go wrong with this one!

given the forced change from Together to Keep It, and the introduction of a more cost-intensive (a.k.a. subscription-based) system in case of use across devices Keep It is a mixed bag. with a promising trajectory, but also with some caveeats as to feature loss vis-a-vis Together. while some big advantages can be seen (tag drill down for even better/faster file-/info-retrieval; and an overall better iCloud sync), there are some big losses on some features that really made me chose Together. others have some other complaints as to this (like encryption missing now), but for me the biggest loss – and one that seems a little self-defeating for an app enhancing the use of tags for retrieval – is the dropping of a well-featured way to manage your tags in the first place (Together had hierarchical tags, tag groups, you could see and review all your tags in a structured way). so for me Keep It (along with its subscription politics) remains a hopeful contender. while it excels in some repsects over Together, and one can see a rationale for it becoming a 'different' app compared to Together, the loss of some of the real strengths of Together at a time where you have to put up more money will only be justified in the long run, if Keep It keeps it up on feature development – ... and also closes some 'gaps' in relation to the Together it´s supposed to replace (in some way). – for people who now have to hang with Keep It but are accustomed to Together and its feature portfolio, there is a good thread to trace all the trade-offs involved (or most of them): https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/15586/together/reviews

I really like this app. It's simple but deceptively powerful. I like how it integrates tags and folders. Some apps have a folder view and a tags view and the two are separate. Keep It integrates them. So, for instance, if you choose a folder, you only see the tags of items in that folder.

I use Keep It for storing lots of disparate information including little notes that would get lost otherwise. I think it's better than Evernote. I also think it's better than Paperless, which costs the same.

Plus Keep It's files are saved in the Finder as normal files. So if for some reason in the future you decide to stop using Keep It, moving the files to another program shouldn't be hard.

I'm giving it four stars instead of five only because I think Keep It could add some features. But for version 1, I think it's quite good.

I have not used the IOS version, though, so my review is only for the Mac version, used as a stand alone.

Keep It is a pretty worthy successor to 'Together', with much improved speed and iCloud syncing reliability. You do miss the ability to encrypt items, but hopefully this will be re-introduced. (Small gripe: it occasionally garbles pasted links - but again hopefully this will be fixed in an update.)

As I stated elsewhere, this app has the unique ability to subvert a chosen part of your Finder file system and make it "iCloud managed" for syncing, without messing with iCloud Drive's various app-dedicated folders.

Hold down command and option as the app launches, and you can place your stuff in the folder location of your choice, with sub-folders too - all managed in the app, but there in your file system in the regular way. Many items can be viewed and edited straight in the app, and all can be opened with their default app if you prefer.

I don't know of anything else that does quite what this does. It works and syncs well with its iOS companion. Import/export or sharing is also pretty good. All in all, it's a fantastic app, and to my mind well worth the price.
