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 less than half an hour later. Android Police earlier discovered a source code that suggested Google was planning the service at drive.google.com/keep. They later found that the desktop version had gone live earlier this evening (US time). Shortly after their discovery, the service went offline, perhaps indicating that it had emerged to the world earlier than planned. That’s certainly the impression that we got while briefly using the service before it went away. We didn’t manage to grab any screenshots, but Android Police captured a number which show a very basic — almost made-for-mobile — interface that allowed users to quickly create notes, but had no initial integration with the rest of its Google Drive products.
