Google aims to help Keep your notes Video Transcript
-Google wants to keep your notes. I'm Jeff Bakalar and this is your CNET Update. Yesterday, Google introduced Keep, the new mobile and web-based note storing service that looks to aim at products like Evernote. Boasting a simple, easy to use interface, Keep will work with Google Drive so that all of your notes are synced across different platforms. -You could stay on top of your world by quickly and easily organizing everything you wanna remember. No matter where you are, finalize store list. -Users can edit their notes from either their phone or the web, and information will be saved everywhere. You can also use voice dictation and photos to help enhance each note you take. The BlackBerry store has topped 100,000 apps, 30,000 of which were just added in the last 7 weeks. The milestone arrives just in time for the new Z10 to land on store shelves and notable apps to the store include offerings from Kindle, CNN, OpenTable, Skype and Viber among others. The store has been criticized in past for a lack of software, so this should help ease those worries. Still, BlackBerry has a long uphill battle ahead of it, though, as Windows Phone 8 slowly begins to gain popularity, all behind of course, Android and iOS. Speaking of app stores, Google Play might be getting a major overhaul pretty soon. Screenshot photos have surfaced on Android enthusiast site Droid Life, what's being called Google Play 4.0. They show a much sleeker interface and simplistic theme throughout, though it's not totally confirmed that this in fact the new store. We'll update you on the latest, once we get word. Well, we might as well continue today's mobile app theme show with news that Pandora has now hit Windows Phone 8. The big news here is that the app will be free and stay ad-free for a limited time. New adapters will get all of the premium freebie features including unlimited streaming, and those perks will end in 2014 when it goes back to the $4 a month and free but ad-supported models. And finally, YouTube has just announced a major milestone of 1 billion monthly users. This is pretty crazy. Put it like this, if YouTube were a country, it would be the third largest on the planet, behind China and India. That's pretty impressive. So, why there is a jump in traffic? It's because of the amount of multi-screen users, those of us who consume YouTube not just on our computer screen but also our phones and tablets.
