Google Keep has finally been released on the web and Android. Images and a website for Google Keep briefly appeared Sunday night but was quickly taken down. The service allows users to take notes with the ability to log in and access them on any computer. The Android app was released alongside the website. Read on to find out more about Google Keep.

The service seems very bare bones. On the Google Keep page you can view all of your notes in a sticky note type of view as well as search for notes. The service is similar to products like Evernote or SimpleNote that allow syncing of notes to various devices. One area Google Keep differentiates itself, however, is in its Android integration.

The service seems very bare bones. On the Google Keep page you can view all of your notes in a sticky note type of view as well as search for notes.

The Google Keep app for Android appears to be very snappy. Compared to similar third party apps, Google Keep is quick to load, quick to add pictures and even quick at recognizing users voices. Google Keep even has a widget users can add to their lockscreen, provided they run Android 4.2 or above. The lockscreen widget allows you to quickly utilize Google Keep without needing to unlock the device.

What’s interesting to note is the fact that the Mountain View company released their Google Keep app for Android first. With an iOS version of Google Keep nowhere to be found, one must wonder when the app is coming. While Google supporting their own platforms is to be expected, there have been instances where Google’s released apps on iPhone and iPad first, such as Youtube Capture or the redesigned Gmail. We’d have to imagine that an iOS app is on its way.

Read on for Google’s Official Announcement of Google Keep:

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.

If it’s more convenient to speak than to type that’s fine-Keep transcribes voice memos for you automatically. There’s super-fast search to find what you’re looking for and when you’re finished with a note you can archive or delete it.
Changing priorities isn’t a problem: just open Keep on your Android phone or tablet (there’s a widget so you can have Keep front and center all the time) and drag your notes around to reflect what matters. You can choose the color for each note too.

Pro tip: for adding thoughts quickly without unlocking your device there’s a lock screen widget (on devices running Android 4.2+).
Google Keep is available on Google Play for devices running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and above. You can access, edit and create new notes on the web at http://drive.google.com/keep and in the coming weeks you’ll be able to do the same directly from Google Drive.
