Google launched a note-taking app named Google Keep. The purpose of this app is similar to apps like Evernote, S Memo (On Samsung Devices), and Sticky Note etc. They all help you achieve one common thing, which is to take notes easily. Till now Evernote was one of the most famous apps in this domain, which helps you to keep notes and sync them across all your devices like Mobile, Desktop, Tablets. Google Keep is now a challenger to the dominance of Evernote.
It is already available on Google Play store since 20th March, 2013 and has hit a million downloads already. As per their description on Google Play store:
With Google Keep, you can:
- Keep track of your thoughts via notes, lists and photos
- Have voice notes transcribed automatically
- Use homescreen widgets to capture thoughts quickly
- Colour-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 – they are safely stored in the cloud and available on the web at http://drive.google.com/keep
