Never heard of it, but after your post, I downloaded it and had a play: brilliant bit of kit! I've just migrated my Notes app to Google Keep. Synchronises instantaneously between my PC, Chromebook and android phone, so I can make a note on any one of them and know it will be with me whichever device I'm using.

Also, being on the PC means I can review, edit and organise notes that were randomly entered via the phone. it's much easier to get an overview, see duplicates, combine similar topics and assign group labels etc, which then makes the phone version a lot easier to navigate as well.

Thank you for bringing Google Keep to my attention.

Well.... in the spirit of the OP's point that people pay over the odds for having a smart phone, you could install "InCompass", (a market research data gathering app, not another direction finder!) on your smartphone and your computer, they will pay you £10 a month to collect usage and environment data (e.g. usage on the PC and what you are listening to via your mobile's microphone).

I've got it installed and my phone now pays me £5 a month (£10 from InCompass - £5 monthly contract) which, whilst a silly amount of money, appeals to my sense of Scroogery and gives me immense pleasure for some reason!

If you do nefarious things on your devices, or are involved in National security, probably not a good idea, but the app is from a trusted Market Research company (Mori) and the Ts & Cs are quite clear that they won't hack your bank or even know who you are.
