[Android app] Google Keep updated (2.2) with searchable images, updated action bar, and more

Google Keep for Android

Google's note taking app Keep for Android has been updated to version 2.2 with a few new features and improvements. The update is being rolled out in stages, so it maybe awhile before it is available on your device. You can download the latest version through the Google Play Store or by using the following links:

Price Free
Requirements Android 4.0 or greater

The most notable change after updating will be a bright yellow bar across the top of the interface, bringing Keep a bit more identity so it no longer looks like such a generic Google app. The redesign also brings a full-featured slide-in bar, adding trash, feedback and help options to the bar along with an account switcher, removing the "settings" option altogether.

There are just a few new features here as well, and they're quite useful. Keep will now do character recognition for printed text in images, and that information is now searchable within the app (much like we're used to in Evernote). There are also new settings for lists so that you can control where new or checked items go when you interact with them. A new "trash" item lets you delete notes but still access them for a while longer, just incase you need to come back to an old note.

If you don't feel like waiting for the update to arrive, you could consider manually downloading the APK file using the following link.
