Regular readers know I am a fan of Evernote so I was pleased to hear the news of two new releases today. Evernote released Evernote Hello and Evernote Food, both for the iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

Evernote Hello: This new application is described in their Evernote blog post and seeks to solve a problem that I have and that is in remembering people I meet. I may be an engineer with a Master's degree and professional engineering license, but I can't remember a person's name five minutes after I first meet them. Evernote Hello helps use a technique that many use and that is to apply context to the meeting so you can better remember people.

Evernote Hello focuses on faces, time, and context and the recommended first step is to hand over your phone and let them capture a self portrait first and if you read the blog post you will see that the app captures four quick photos and animates the face in the Mosaic. The app then creates an encounter that capture the location, time, and date.

All of this is captured and stored and then synced with your Evernote account too.

Evernote Food: This second new application is designed to capture the experiences associated with various meals and is not used for counting calories. Evernote Food helps you capture the meal title, photos associated with the meal, photo captions, venue, notes, and tags. I know when I go to events I often have meals out with people and our family generally goes out for a meal at a restaurant two or three times a month. With Christmas coming up I will be attending several meals where this application may come in handy and intend to try it out.

Like Evernote Hello, the meals in Evernote Food are synced to your Evernote account.

  • Evernote Hello and Food Apps

    hi Matthew - I like how you advocate Evernote's new apps! I completely see how useful they are, especially when meeting a lot of people in a limited time. However, we recently discussed these apps (http://ow.ly/7WJPl) and find that potentially the 'hello' app in particular can be quite invasive?

    Most people probably understand that it's difficult to remember names, but no one likes to have it spelled out! However, the fact that the person you meet can choose what information they feel comfortable sharing about themselves puts them in a position where it does not seem as invasive?

    Perhaps the reaction of these apps depends on the popularity of them, though innovation is ever-advancing!

    My friend was working on apple and he changed his profession and life build career because he discovered the best method to get a ipod for free. Each problem which I have with ipod it's finished for me because my friend Tony helps me.
    After he told me the best method to get a free ipod touch, it always helps me with all sorts of questions I have. This is his job and I appreciate very much his website free-us-ipod.com .
