As expected, Google has taken its note-taking service Google Keep live. The new app and service allow users to make color-coded notes, create checklists, and also add pictures to existing notes as part of its Google Drive-based suite of apps.

The service has appeared in some screenshots published on Google+ dating as far back as July 2012, according to Android Police, and appeared to go live within Drive for a few hours before engineers noticed the mistake. Functioning similarly to Google Notebook, Keep includes options to archive notes, sending them to the bottom of a note list, along with a thumbnail view and list view, though the latter did not display stored images correctly. 



Google has released a full app for the service, a departure from the usual all-in-one app Google currently uses for Drive. The app includes a lock screen widget for devices running Android 4.2 or greater. Users can access, edit and create new notes on the web and "in the coming weeks" according to Google, users will able to do the same directly from Google Drive.

Google retires technologies to quickly and for no good reasons at time. Google Sync, Google Reader any one? Even if something has a strong user base, its no guarantee that Google wont just shut it down. I don't trust them any more.
