Is Google creeping onto Evernote's lawn? Probably not, but Google Keep is slowly adding one or two very handy features to encourage you to make it your simple note-taking app of choice. This week Mountain View engineers added the option to share notes with other people, and here's how it works.
Google's barebones note-taking service Keep is getting note sharing and real-time collaboration. It's live on the web, and it'll start rolling out to the Google Keep Android app today.
Google Keep is getting updated with location-based and time-based reminders. Now you'll be able to pester yourself about the stuff on your todo list with ease, and there's even a menu where you can see all your upcoming pings. Remind yourself to check it out.
Take note! Google just announced a new Chrome app for Google Keep, so now you can easily jot down your thoughts while you're surfing the web.
Since Google launched Keep yesterday, the question on everyone's mind has been, "how is will this measure up to Evernote?" Well don't think the newcomer is going to suddenly oust the elephant in the room as the best service for interweb jotting. It's just way too barebones.
