Google Keep is a NEW online note keeping service that works in connection with your Google Drive. If you have a Google account, such as Gmail, then your account will give you access to the other Google services such as Google Drive; and now, Google Keep. Google Keep is web based, so you can access it from any internet enabled computer or device (click here for an example) or you can install the Android version of Google Keep to your Android based phone or tablet (click here for more on this).
From what I am seeing right now, Google Keep is in the very early stages and actually I am not seeing where it is connecting to my Google Drive (yet). The actual notes are very basic (right now) with no rich text formatting; however, you can add images.
Will this be a competitor to Evernote and Springpad? Time will only tell whether more features will be added, etc… in order to bring Google Keep up to the speed with Evernote or Springpad. I just thought it to be interesting, that Google is making a service such as this, available.
The biggest concern I have is that Google comes up with these great ideas, then couple years down the road decides to kill them (i.e. Google Notebook, iGoogle, and Google Reader). Personally, I thought Google Notebook was ahead of its’ time and was an excellent service.
