Keep It

Write notes, keep things,
and find them again

Keep It is a notebook, scrapbook and organizer, useful for writing notes, saving web links, documents, images or any kind file, and finding them again. Available on iPhone and iPad, and as a separate app for Mac, Keep It is the destination for all those things you want to put somewhere, confident you will find them again later.

Keep It is the successor to Together. Find information for Together users at the bottom of the page.

Notes, Links and Everything Else

Make Notes

Create notes with built-in styles that look good and read well on all your devices. Notes can contain checklists, bulleted and numbered lists, dividers, links, sketches, images and other attachments.

Save Web Links

Save web links to Keep It, view them in the app, open them in your browser, or save them as PDFs or web archives for offline reading.

Add Anything

Any kind of file can be created from stationery, added to Keep It in the app or while working in other apps. Documents can be opened for editing in any other application that can open that kind of file. Any item can be encrypted with a password.

Preview and Edit

Keep It generates thumbnails and summaries for most files, can edit its own notes, Markdown, rich and plain text documents, add highlights and notes to PDFs, and show images, web pages and most other documents.



Keep It can store everything in iCloud and make it available on your iPad, iPhone, and Mac too, with Keep It for Mac.

Share Folders and Items

Keep it can share top-level folders and individual items with other Keep It users via iCloud. Participants will see all changes automatically.



Folders let you organize items and bundles hierarchically, when needed. Select a folder to see everything it contains. Swipe right on any expandable folder to focus on it. Use drag and drop to rearrange folders, bundles and items.


When you need to gather things into one place, make a bundle. Items can be in more than one bundle at a time, and when you remove the bundle, everything else stays where it was.


Use labels to color-code items for quick visual recognition. Labels are listed at the top-level on iPhone or sidebar on iPad, so you can quickly see everything with a particular label.

More Lists

Use the Recents list to see things you’ve added or viewed lately, with the latest shown at the top. Favorites provide quick access. Deleted Items are automatically removed after 30 days.

Search and Filter


Keep It can search the content of most files, and can recognize text in scanned PDFs and images, including attachments. While searching, suggestions appear as you type, allowing you to narrow down results to exactly what you need. Save searches for later reuse.

Tag Filter

Keep It’s Tag Filter makes finding things by their tags easy, and works with search and the selected list. Choose a tag to see all the tagged items and any other relevant tags; choose another tag to drill down further.

Where You Need It


Add web links, text, photos and videos from within other apps with Keep It's Share extension, available in most apps. As you do, you can choose to append text to an existing note, specify tags, and choose a destination folder or bundle.

Works with Other Apps

Keep It integrates with the Files app so you can access everything in Keep It from within other apps. Drag and drop files, text and links to Keep It on iPad. You can also copy clickable links to items for use in other apps, and automate with Shortcuts or x-callback-urls.
