We previously reported that Google Keep was going to be launched soon, today its finally here. The app has been beautifully developed and is now available for download. With everything moving in the digital arena, sticky-notes seem a bit outdated now. They’re great for jotting down that flash of genius idea that you may forget, or even writing down tasks that you need to accomplish. The problem with these notes is that they can be easily misplaced. Here’s where Google Keep comes in. All notes, which can include checklists and photos, are stored in Google Drive and will be synced to all of your devices. Keep can also automatically transcribe voice memos. It can swiftly search through notes as well, and there’s also the ability to archive or delete notes.
A Google Keep widget can be added to the homescreen of your Android smartphone, so that notes can easily be taken without having to launch the entire app. For devices running Android 4.2 or higher, there’s a lockscreen widget available, so that the device doesn’t have to be unlocked and notes can still be taken. Colors can be chosen for notes as well.
You can download Google Keep right now from Google Play Store. It is compatible with devices running Android 4.0 or higher. New notes can be created on the web at http://drive.google.com/keep, the ability to do this directly from Google Drive will be added in the coming weeks.
