Google launched last Wednesday a new note-taking tool: Google Keep. Google describes the new service as way to “quickly capture what’s on your mind and recall it easily wherever you are.”
With Google Keep, you can create notes, checklists, photos and voice memos — and all the content syncs across your devices, reported Mashable. Google Keep is available for Android 4.0 and above on the web at http://drive.google.com/keep. According to the company, in the coming weeks it will be directly accessible from Google Drive.
- A quick note directly from the text box on the initial screen.
- Add a checklist by tapping on the check mark icon.
- Create a voice memo by tapping on the microphone. All memos are instantly transcribed, keeping both the audio and text in the note.
- Add a photo as a note by tapping on the camera.
Furthermore, as Google describes, it is possible to color-code the notes, swipe to archive things no longer needed and turn a note into a checklist by adding checkboxes.
