Google Keep is a service provided by Google which implements note taking and web surfing. Google announced on March 20, 2013 of a new service, Google Keep, that it's available both on Google Play for the Android mobile and on Google Drive as a web application.

The official description was written at the official Google Blogspot, http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2013/03/google-keepsave-whats-on-your-mind.html. It can be seen below:

Every day we all see, hear or think of things we need to remember. Usually we grab a pad of sticky-notes, scribble a reminder and put it on the desk, the fridge or the relevant page of a magazine. Unfortunately, if you’re like me you probably often discover that the desk, fridge or magazine wasn’t such a clever place to leave the note after all...it’s rarely where you need it when you need it.

To solve this problem we’ve created Google Keep. With Keep you can quickly jot ideas down when you think of them and even include checklists and photos to keep track of what’s important to you. Your notes are safely stored in Google Drive and synced to all your devices so you can always have them at hand.

If it’s more convenient to speak than to type that’s fine—Keep transcribes voice memos for you automatically. There’s super-fast search to find what you’re looking for and when you’re finished with a note you can archive or delete it.
