Google’s quick note taking app is finally available to Android users running 4.0 and up. The app has been launched on Play Now, Android’s app store. Google has created this app to help users take notes quickly, like additions to a shopping list, names, email ids phone numbers of important contacts and other quick info. The notes app is handy to use when a pen and paper are not available. You can type in notes or record voice memos for easy access and retrieval and access at a later time or date. Another neat feature is the provision to pin photos to the Keep app that is synced with Google’s web based dashboard. The android version of the app offers a widget for devices running Ice Cream Sandwich and up for easy access to notes on the home screen. For JellyBean- Android 4.2 and up, the app offers a lock screen widget.
The app has a neat, clean interface for notes taking and a few intelligent capabilities like color coding entries and rearrangement to order your lists. In its most basic form, the app allows users to take notes, transcribe voice messages, and pin photos for quick and easy retrieval. Google is planning to support new features like the ability to view and store notes on Keep directly on its Google Drive Cloud platform, support filtering and search capabilities, note archiving and switching between the single and multicolumn views for comparison.
A very handy app, especially since it can be directly launched from the home screen.
