Cloud based services have been a hit in recent years. Leaders such as Dropbox and Evernote have pioneered the ability to save, edit, store, collaborate and share information over a wide variety of platforms and devices. As a University student and techy such services are vital to my day to day tasks as I am able to start a project on my desktop, add to the same project while on the go via my cellphone and then share that same project on my laptop with my classmates or lecturer without ever worrying about saving, transferring or corruption of data.
In steps Google and their new service called Google Keep a new cloud based note-taking app in the same vein as Evernote:
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.
