On its blog, Google describes Google Keep as a way to “quickly jot ideas down when you think of them and even include checklists and photos to keep track of what’s important to you.”
Every day we all see, hear or think of things we need to remember. Usually we grab a pad of sticky-notes, scribble a reminder and put it on the desk, the fridge or the relevant page of a magazine. Unfortunately, if you’re like me you probably often discover that the desk, fridge or magazine wasn’t such a clever place to leave the note after all…it’s rarely where you need it when you need it.
To solve this problem, Google have created Google Keep. With Keep, we can quickly jot ideas down when we think of them and even include checklists and photos to keep track of what’s important to us. Our notes are safely stored in Google Drive and synced to all our devices so we can always have them at hand.
If it’s more convenient to speak than to type that’s fine—Keep transcribes voice memos for us automatically. There’s super-fast search to find what we’re looking for and when we’re finished with a note we can archive or delete it.
Google Keep is available on Google Play for devices running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and above. You can access, edit and create new notes on the web at http://drive.google.com/keep and in the coming weeks you’ll be able to do the same directly from Google Drive.
