Download Google Keep - a competitive alternative app to Evernote

Evernote is one of the favourite and extremely popular note keeper for many users. But now it has a rival: Google Keep.

Google presented 'Keep' in a blog post on Wednesday, and the features look impressive - and now it is to be seen whether Google can 'kill' Evernote to scale down its popularity or otherwise.

The newly released Google Keep will help users to write and organize to-do lists and notes and take and store photos. But perhaps most exciting (and most prone to failure) feature is the voice transcribing function.

Like Evernote, Google Keep syncs your information between accounts. Also like Evernote, which uses Google's servers to transcribe spoken text on Android, Google Keep will type out what you say if you're not in the mood to use your hands. Google's transcription tech, as far as we can tell, is on par with Apple's Siri.

The salient features of Keep are as under:
Quickly capture what’s on your mind and recall it easily wherever you are. Create a checklist, enter a voice note or snap a photo and annotate it. Everything you add is instantly available on all your devices – desktop and mobile.

With Google Keep you can:
• Keep track of your thoughts via notes, lists and photos
• Have voice notes transcribed automatically
• Use homescreen widgets to capture thoughts quickly
• Color-code your notes to help find them later
• Swipe to archive things you no longer need
• Turn a note into a checklist by adding checkboxes
• Use your notes from anywhere - they are safely stored in the cloud and available on the web So would Google Keep come out popular and more competitive than Evernote. Well there is not mu

ch of a difference between the two except that Keep is by Google!!

Google Keep is only available for devices running Android 4.0 or above, but you can edit and create Keep notes online in Google Drive for now. The app is available for download right now via Google Play.
