Google has unveiled “Keep,” a note-taking app that allows users to jot down notes on the fly, transcribe voice memos and snap photos. All content created with the app uploads to a user’s Google Drive, and syncs with other devices, including Android 4.0 and up.
A Google-produced video explains how to use Keep.
The app displays content in a tile format that allows users to drag and color different pieces of content into preferred arrangements. And it represents a direct challenge to Evernote, another note-taking app that offers a broader array of features than Keep.
In the future, people who use Google’s cloud-based data-storage app, Google Drive, will be able to create and edit Keep content from inside Google Drive, which may lead more people to adopt it, TechCrunch noted.
