Keep It 1.7

Keep It 1.7 is now available for Mac, iPad and iPhone. On both Mac and iOS, version 1.7 adds search and text recognition for attachments, improved Markdown previews, and improvements for viewing and working with mail messages, along with various other improvements.

This version updates Keep It for iOS 13 (and, when it’s released, iPadOS), adding support for Dark Mode, the ability to annotate PDFs and images, contextual menus, the ability to scan multi-page documents, and improved automation support in the Shortcuts app.

Keep It for Mac can now print all file types that it natively supports, there are improvements for Dark Mode on macOS Mojave and later, and improved Touch Bar support for notes, Markdown documents, PDF files, and images.

Dark Mode

Keep It now supports Dark Mode on iOS 13. As on Mac, notes, rich text, plain text and Markdown files will be shown as light text on a dark background, along with mail messages when appropriate, and Markdown previews and web pages styled to work in Dark Mode.

On both Mac and iOS, notes and rich text files with custom background colors will now always be shown as light content, to avoid issues where synced styles created in Dark Mode cause issues on devices not using Dark Mode.

Search Attachments

Keep It will now search files attached to notes, rich text documents and mail messages as though part of the item’s overall content, and will perform text recognition on attached PDFs and images when necessary.

Annotate on iOS 13

On iOS 13, tap the Markup button to annotate PDFs and images with Apple Pencil or drawing on the screen. It’s now also possible to markup PDF and image attachments in notes and rich text files, as on Mac.

Multiple Windows on iPadOS 13

Keep It will support multiple windows on iPadOS when it’s released. Drag items from the list to create new windows in Split View and Slide Over. Items can also be opened in their own windows from a contextual menu in the item list.

UI Changes on iOS 13

Tap and hold on individual items in the item list or thumbnails to show a contextual menu with quick access to things such as moving items and adding tags. Contextual menus will also be shown when tapping and holding in the Lists view and Tag Filter.

Every icon for lists and buttons has been updated to match the new look of iOS 13.

Shortcuts on iOS 13

To take advantage of the Shortcuts app on iOS 13, which now supports input and output parameters for third-party shortcuts, Keep It provides shortcuts to create items from text or files, append text to items, attach files to items, save web links, get items based on a wide range of criteria, obtain and change the properties of those items, and open items or lists in the app.

Touch Bar on Mac

Keep It for Mac now shows document-specific Touch Bar for notes to choose styles, highlight text, and insert checklists, for formatting Markdown documents, for navigating, zooming and annotating PDFs, and for rotating PDF pages and images.

And More

Scan multi-page images using the camera using the document camera on iOS 13. On iPad and iPhone, mail messages now show image attachments inline, and on Mac it’s now possible to find occurrences of text in mail messages and work with attachments. Also on Mac, printing support has been added for all editable text files, Markdown previews, PDFs, images, and web pages. 

See the release notes for Mac and for iPad and iPhone for a full list of changes.
