Keep organizes everything in a colorful tile interface. Each one shows you a preview of each note, whether it's a photo, a to-do list, a single task, a saved webpage or whatever else.

Keep was created by Google to satisfy the need of having to take down info quickly without a pen or paper handy, software engineer Katherine Kuan explains in the official blog post.

Tell-tale signs of Google Keep

A preview of Google Keep

Google Keep resembles Google Notebook, which allowed users to clip and organize information from the Web.

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

Signs of Google Keep hints of a new future

It looks like Google might be bringing another one back from the dead in the form of a new note-taking service called "Google Keep." Remember Google Notebook? It's back!

Google might be about to get into the note-taking game after an Evernote-like service sprang up on its Google Drive service, only to disappear as quietly as it arrived.

The desktop version had gone live earlier this evening but went offline hald an hour later, perhaps indicating that it had emerged to the world earlier than planned.

This isn’t the first time that Google Keep has been spotted, either. Last July, Google accidentally included a screenshot in an official Google+ post that included “save to Google Keep” label.

If Google Keep does indeed officially go live later, it will compete with other note-taking services like Evernote, Pocket, and Onenote.

Given the big interest in note-taking and productivity applications over the past couple of years, it’s only natural that Google would want to get into the action

This actually isn't the first we've seen of Keep — last year, Google accidentally included a screenshot in an official Google+ post that contained a link labeled "save to Google Keep".

Remember Google Note?

With Google Notebook, you can browse, clip, and organize information from across the web in a single online location that's accessible from any computer.

Google: "With all the great innovations and improvements to Google Docs in the last few years, we think it’s a great replacement for Notebook."

As of July 2012, Google Notebook has shut down and all Notebook data should now be in Google Docs.
