The Google Keep service which we saw briefly the other day has just gone live. The service is now available by accessing the URL https://drive.google.com/keep/, however despite the Drive URL there doesn’t appear to be a link to it from your Google Services or the Google Toolbar.
There is also an Android App available in Google Play as well and it looks like it is available for devices running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and above and for devices running Android 4.2 there’s also a lockscreen widget. The Android app lists the functions of the app and presumably the service :
- 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.
There’s just been an update put up on the Google Drive Blog. Head on over and check out the blog, the app and the service or watch the intro video :
