Google Keep allows you to keep sticky notes to remind you of all kinds of things. I use it a lot for anything I want to remember later. Since it is a Google tool you can access it from ANY device. Go to keep.google.com or install the app on your phone. Google Keep shortcuts help you to use this amazing tool even better!

Pin the Note
You can pin your notes to the top of Google Keep by pressing the F key.
