googlekeep_2516527bDays after rumors and speculations about google’s new evernote like service we finally have an official product out and the name although unusual that it sounds is – Google Keep. In a recent blog post on their official blog , this is what they posted that explains what they had in mind :

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. 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. With Keep you can quickly jot ideas down when you think of them and even include checklists and photos to keep track of what’s important to you. Your notes are safely stored in Google Drive and synced to all your devices so you can always have them at hand.

On the surface it looks more than appealing and functional to get that awesome Google Drive integrated with a quick notes application and having those useful home screen widget seems like an icing-on-the-cake but we shall be doing an in-depth review of this application side-by-side compared to evernote and see how well it copes.

For now, those who want a web version of Google Keep here is the link
