Notif Pro Adds “Note to Self…” Voice Search Action

notif pro

Notif, one of our favorite apps of the last year because of its simple yet powerful note taking abilities, that we’ve already written up a couple of times, received a new feature last night thanks to a recent update. In Google Voice Search, as you tell Google to begin a “note to self…,” Notif (pro version only) will show up as one of the options after you have spoken your note. Should you choose Notif, your spoken note will then appear as all Notifs do, in the notification bar until you swipe it away. 

For those not familiar with Notif, think of it as the easiest way to create a quick note, list or image reminder that you’ll want to tackle later on in your day. It’s not a traditional note taking app in the sense that you have this massive list of notes to categorize and weed through over time. Notif is all about now or the very near future. You create a list or note and it appears immediately in your notification bar. The notifications can expand or shrink, you can set priority levels, add special icons, make items ongoing notifications, and even voice dictate notes from within the app.

There are pro and free versions available, but as one would expect, all of the new features go pro.

    Keep is my new favorite notekeeper. I like the idea of having all my apps tied to Google.

  • Kagnon

    With Keep, Evernote and Catch around i don’t see myself paying $0.99 for this.

    EDIT: Nm didn’t notice the free version cause they only added the link for the paid version.

    • jbegs

      It’s only available in the paid version.

    Same for Catch Notes.

  • +1 for calling Voice Search/Actions by its proper name and not shoehorning it into “Google Now”.

    I really like how now voice actions can change the default. Absolutely loving it!

    Beer in general is overrated, I’d prefer a glass of scotch and a fine cigar any day.

    • ArrowCool

      Spoken like a true american.

      • JoshGroff

        America, f’ck yeah!

  • Shane Redman

    I hope they keep Keep…

    • JoshGroff

      Keep is a keeper!

      • Shane Redman

        Keep on Keeping on!

    • Austin Warren

      Yo dawg, heard you like keep, so we’re keeping it.

  • Austin Warren

    Keep does the same. The more the merrier.

        I fuc*ed your neighbors sister-in-law.

        • JoshGroff

          What a coincidence, so did I.

          • Austin Warren

            Can’t say that’s a good thing or bad thing

          • Warwick

            I f’ed the neightbor! lol

  • Justin Barrett

    I’ll pretend that you didn’t say “hoppy beer is ridiculously overrated”. 🙂

  • Anyone know if this can be made to sync across devices?

    • Josh Shaw

      Google Keep will…..

      • branshaw09

        Will Keep integrate with Google Now and keep it in the Notification bar?

        • Tirionfive

          Too many Keeps

        • fartbubbler

          no, I can’t find that in my Google Keep app. That would be great, it’s the reason I use Notif.

        • Josh Shaw

          It will allow you to record notes with Google Now, and I’m sure soon they will have a persistent card in Now soon enough

    • Joey

      are you asking if this will ‘keep’ things across devices? I think you know the answer 🙂
