|March 26 2013 |Mobile Apps, applications, Google

Keeper of your secrets, anyone? How about a diligent app that takes down your notes to store on your device for your ready reference. If you want it, you’ll need to lookout for Google Keep, Google’s very latest note taking app, that is responsive, quick and a delight. This app will currently available for Android device owners using version 4.0.3 and higher. Accessing this app can also be done through Google Drive, but users will have to wait for this one as Google still has to get this medium up and running.

“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,” wrote Google in a blog announcing the new service.

“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 we’ve created Google Keep.”


The app outlay and features are presented in a simplistic and easy manner taking its utility to a few notches higher. After all the app is supposed to be doing assistant like chores, which should be trouble-free to use. The app consists of list making options and note taking options. Both can be used to instantly take down information you want and keep it for when you need to check back to it. Also, there are times when you’ve noticed something or a story idea pops into your head, and you want to scribble it down before you forget, this app will do just that.

Supposing it’s a concept you want to write about, you can add images to your notes and check lists, of something you spot then and there.

An important requirement for an app that takes down notes is if it has the capacity to listen in and transcribe it. Google Keep is keep-able of it. You just need to talk and the app translates it and transfers it to store onto its notes area.

As for storage everything you want for keeps gets saved in your Google Drive, which is synced with all your devices in order for you to gain access from anywhere, anyhow. To liven up, and to visually categorize your notes, you can apply colors to each note. This app also has widgets for the homescreen so you can revert to a page quick and easy. There is also a lock screen Google Keep widget for devices running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Although you cannot access Google Keep from your Drive this will be made possible soon. Evernote has something to watch out for, since the fact that Google Keep is highly accessible makes it stiff competition to fend off. Being a Google App, it will be available on other services by Google too, which is in lay terms, going global in every way.
