Google Launches Keep For Chrome, Lets You Manage Notes, To-Do Lists, & Photos While Offline [Updates]

chromeos logo   Google Launches Keep For Chrome, Lets You Manage Notes, To Do Lists, & Photos While Offline [Updates] Google announced on Thursday the release of its latest product: the Google Keep Chrome app. Google Keep was launched for Web and Android in March, and was described by many as an Evernote competitor. However, Evernote still reigns supreme as the go-to note-taking app.

Google Keep for Chrome allows you to jot down notes, cross off to-do lists, and attach photos to various tasks. Even better, the app works entirely offline, so you can keep going even without an Internet connection. Whenever you do reconnect, the app will automatically sync all of your new information with the app across your multiple devices.

Although the app can be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store, the Google Keep Chrome appĀ is notĀ a Chrome extension at all. In fact, Keep can operate as a standalone app even if Chrome is not running.

In general, Google Keep is a service that lets you keep track of all your notes in one place. The service lets you “save ideas and organize to-dos the moment they happen by creating notes, lists, photos and voice recordings.”

For those of you who need a bit of a refresher, here’s a video that showcases the app:

Visit the Chrome Web Store to install the Chrome version of Google Keep.

Will you make use of the new Google Keep Chrome app? Do you think it’s a worthy competitor to Evernote?

Interesting. Trying to find a replacement to Evernote due to problems caused by their sync. I hope Google Keep is a worthy competitor, otherwise I’ll just have to keep on searching :)

Or… Evernote will get its head out of the sandbox and use the open API for Keep like APPs to achieve Google levels of synch-performance.

There’s already so many productivity applications to choose from; one would hope that with the resources already available to Google that it’d develop something new, different and/or game-changing rather than offering up something that we already have a ton of.

That being said, I do like it’s interface. And it is convenient. But I’ll wait on considering it when it develops its version of Skitch. Then Keep and I will talk.

As lovely as it may be, I’m still sporting 2.3. If it’s only available via web app then it’s not as useful as Evernote/Pocket/etc.

You’d think that Google would try to be more inclusive of it’s users who aren’t on 4.0+.

Google Keep is the Google Reader of Evernote.
