Matt — I’m iOS/OSX in all ways but my Nexus 5x and Google Keep. And, though I’ve used Notes to file some local editing, Keep is incredibly powerful, indexable, seamless coordination between browser and app(s).
I was formerly an Evernote user. But the seamlessness of Keep, and the lightweight client and browser plugin (Chrome) make it a must-have.
(P.S. Nice article on Notes, BTW. Much appreciate it.)
