Google announced a big update to Google Keep today, adding a much-needed feature to the nascent note app: time and location-based reminders, powered by Google Now. Nice! You can now select, at the bottom of a note while creating or editing it, to be reminded of that note at a certain time or place. I can already say this is going to get me using Keep a lot more. The reminders can be snoozed or adjusted in the notification bar when they appear, too, which is pretty awesome.

The new update also adds a slideout navigation bar (yay consistency), and the ability to add photos from your gallery instead of just being limited to snapping one with the camera. All in all, a few great new features have made their way into what has quickly become one of my favorite Google services.

The update is in a staged rollout, and we'll upload the APK when and if we get it. For more on the update, check out the official Google Drive Blog post.

Update: Grab the Keep APK v2.0.35 from our mirror (ICS+, 2,577,406 bytes).
