Evernote has released an update to its mobile app Hello, which is now in version 2.0.
Initially announced in December 2011, on the occasion of the exhibition LeWeb, the application Hello, proposes a new contact management. This allows a person to photograph and then add a note to re-contextualize this meeting thereafter. The advantage is to centralize Hello contacts directly with Evernote and memos to classify venues thanks to the geolocation support. Phone number, email address or Twitter account can be added.
Version 2.0 also offers a mechanism to scan unlimited number of business cards and create a new contact with the OCR technology which is already present on the company’s servers. In addition it is enough to ask an email address and then enter it into the application to retrieve information from Facebook and LinkedIn, of course if that email is attached to the profiles in question. With functionality Hello Connect you can also instantly exchange information with nearby users.
Hello 2.0 also features a new home screen with a chronology involving new contacts and meeting places. Here below is a video presentation of Hello 2.0 for iOS devices:
