2013. Google Keep adds location-based reminders. If you manage a business or company department, then probably you have a lot of stuff to remember and use some reminder-app. For example, Google Calendar that sends you emails or sms, reminding that today is someone's birthday, or that you need to call a customer or pay for advertising. And if you use the online note-keeping app Google Keep, than you can use another type of reminder - "location-reminder" that pop ups on your phone when you come to a certain place. For example, you can set reminder not to forget to send an email when you get to your office, or buy the printer paper when you come to store, or to visit customer, when you come to London, etc. By the way, the classic (time-based) reminder is also now available in Google Keep.



2013. Google trolls users. Launches online notebook Google Keep. Google has launched a new service - Google Keep. It's an online notebook, where you can add notes (text, pictures, lists). It works in browser and on Android. It doesn't provide any way to organize the notes (no folders, tags), you can't insert links in note and share notes. But it can transcript speech to text on the fly (on different languages). In general, it's the alternative to Evernote with its advantages and disadvantages. But, of course, in light of the recent events, it's interesting to know, why this service appeared. As you know, Google provided the similar service in the past - Google Notebook. It was even better than Evernote and only missed mobile app. It had many users. But then it was closed.



2007. Zoho launching Google Notebook competitor. The new online note-taking service Zoho Notebook is a direct competitor to Microsoft’s OneNote and Google’s Notebook tools, offering similar functionality in the way content can be added to the Notebook that you’ve grabbed from elsewhere on the web. Notebook enables you to add all kinds of content to your Notebook page, from audio or video, both of which can be imported from places like YouTube, or recorded directly to your Zoho Notebook. Content you find on the web can be selected, then right-click to send it to your Zoho Notebook page, or content can be imported by other means, such as RSS feeds. Zoho Notebook can also be used as a whiteboard. In true Zoho nature, there are several ways in which to collaborate and share information. Each item on your Zoho Notebook page can be shared individually, complete with permission settings for everyone the content is shared with.


2007. Zoho preps another Web app: Notebook. There are several Web start-ups that I see over and over again at new-tech conferences but none that launch a new product at each show. That"s certainly what it feels like Zoho does. "Look, it"s another conference! Let"s launch another product." So here we are at Demo 07, and of course Zoho"s got something new: Notebook. If you"ve used Microsoft"s OneNote, you"ll grok it pretty quickly. It"s a content editing system that lets you create multiple sheets in one document. You use tabs across the top for major sections, and into each section you can add pages as subtabs that are displayed along the right. I"ve used OneNote, and like Zoho, its notebook metaphor works well for keeping notes and for organizing your thoughts on big, complex projects. Zoho"s product leverages Zoho"s existing word processor and spreadsheet apps, and you can insert those types as pages into your files.
