The power of Evernote means our notes are everywhere we go, so why not new contact information, meetings, notes, faces, locations and all the details not covered in Apple’s contacts app? This free app fills the gap.
First, let me disclose that I’m an Evernote user and a big fan. Evernote is the notes app that seemingly works everywhere– Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, Android devices.
Among the many hundreds, if not thousands, of apps that capture notes and sync them up online for each of our devices, Evernote is the one that seems to work best.
Evernote Hello is an Evernote companion app for the iPhone and iPad and it bridges the gap between a forgetful memory and Contacts.
Beyond just remembering contact information, Evernote Hello is very good at remembering contacts.
No, not contacts as in the Contacts app, but contact we have with people. Locations, times, dates, people.
Use Evernote Hello to remember meeting details, locations, attendees. Use it to snap photos, or scan business cards.
The Evernote Hello user interface is typical Evernote.
It’s self explanatory, instantly usable, and captures just the right amount of information quickly, and easily.
There’s more going on here than a mere capture of contact information.
Evernote Hello has a great history mode so you can quickly review a timeline of activities and meetings.
Because it is notes oriented, you can grab as much information as you need about meetings, attendees, people, including business card detail.
Business cards? Sure, exchange business cards, and use the iPhone’s camera to scan the card to save in Evernote Hello.
Evernote is moving into social networking and Evernote Hello doesn’t disappoint with connection to LinkedIn, Facebook, and Hello Connect.
What I like most is probably the meeting timeline. If you discipline yourself to capture the details of a meeting, or contact details by meeting someone new, the data becomes invaluable.
All of this is free because it’s part of Evernote, which, if you use it judiciously, is also free.
