Well, that was fast. Earlier today we told you about Google Keep, a note-taking app Google was working on. Now, it seems the desktop version of the site is up and running!

And it's gone. Google Keep is now 404ing. Probably another victim of a spring cleaning. These Google products just don't last as long as they used to!

Well, enjoy the screenshots!


Google Keep works a lot like Google Notebook used to: There's a list of notes, and you can color-code them, save pictures, and make checklists. You can archive notes, which will send them to a section at the bottom of your list.


There's a list view and a thumbnail view, pictured here. This screenshot also shows you what the  New Note field looks like when it's active.

And, of course, this being Google, there is a search bar. It works.


Keep does a terrible job of displaying images in list view. This Jelly Bean logo is only 175 x 267, but here Keep is stretching it to a massive size, it won't even fit on my monitor. There's a mobile web interface, which we have pictured on the right. There's supposed to be an Android app too, but there's no sign of that yet.

That covers just about everything Keep does for right now. It's very simple. The site is was up and running at https://drive.google.com/keep/, and currently there's no integration with the regular Drive site. Needless to say, this is story is quickly evolving, so check back often!
