The previously leaked new service of Google has finally become official. Google Keep is now available on the website as well as an Android app on Google Play. This new service allows anyone to quickly take down notes and save them on your Google Drive account.
While you only need a browser to access the web version of the service the Android app requires that your device is running on at least Android 4.03. You will also need a storage space of at least 1.5 MB.
Some of the features of the app include
- Keep track of your thoughts via notes, lists and photos
- Have voice notes transcribed automatically
- Use home screen widgets to capture thoughts quickly
- Color-code your notes to help find them later
- Swipe to archive things you no longer need
- Turn a note into a checklist by adding checkboxes
- Use your notes from anywhere
Google Keep allows you to take down notes via text or through voice recording, add photos and create lists. You can even color code each of your notes to categorize them easily.
A widget is available so you can
easily record your ideas even while on the home screen. For device running on Android 4.2.2 you can even access the app even on your lock screen.
Since your notes will be saved on your Google Drive account this means you will be able to access them on any device.
The app works great in taking down notes quickly and is a good replacement for your other note taking apps. While most people are comparing it to Evernote it doesn’t have that level of sophistication yet. Google may be planning something bigger with this new service which from the way we see it now has a lot of potential.
