Google Announces New Service, App First

Google has always focused primarily on webapps.

Apple has always focused primarily on native apps.

After this announcement (and looking at Apple’s iCloud web control panel), I think it’s a reasonable assumption to expect the future of online services to encompass both native apps and web apps.

Still, it feels strange to me watching Google release a new service focused primarily around an app. Times are changing.

As for Google Keep itself, it looks a bit like Reminders coupled with a scrapbook. Looks a bit too disjointed for my taste, but I’m interested to see how it works.
