Google could be working on a note-taking application.

Google+ user 1E100 yesterday revealed that a new note-taking application, known as Google Keep, had been discovered in the many places the search company hides products it's working on. 1E100 described a series of places Keep was discovered, including on Google's Products page, in Google Drive, and as part of the search giant's sandbox, where it tries out new products.

According to 1E100, Google might also be working on an Android app, as evidenced by a special URL that points to the application.

During the search, 1E100 was able to find a couple of images of what might be the Google Keep icon. The folks over at Android Police, which earlier discovered 1E100's posting, also noted a link in a Google image that allowed users to "Add to Google Keep." That image came from a July 20 posting on Google's official Google+ page.

Google has remained tight-lipped on any plans for a note-taking app, and the company oftentimes tests out products long before (or even if) they launch. Still, CNET has contacted Google for comment and we will update this story when we have more information.
