Google launches stand-alone Chrome app for Google Keep


Google has announced the launch of a new Chrome app version of its Keep note-taking service. Chrome users can now download the new addition from the Chrome Web Store.

Keep lets users access, edit, and create new notes online. The new Chrome version presents users the advantage of being able to use all of Keep’s service even when off line. This includes the featured voice commands and automatic transcription of voice memos. Keep also features a search function for notes with options to delete or archive it. In addition, Keep allows users to attach photos to tasks.

Though some are comparing the service to rival Evernote, its competing service is reportedly much more powerful. Google describes it as an app that lets users “save ideas and organize to-dos the moment they happen by creating notes, lists, photos and voice recordings.” The Chrome app accomplishes this by being independent from the Chrome browser itself.

Keep is a standalone app completely separate from a user’s Google Chrome Browser. In contrast to being an extension, Keep continues to run even when Chrome is turned off. When a user goes back online, the app syncs everything together.

Google originally launched the service for Web and Android 4.0+ (Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean) devices not more than two months ago in March.
