Evernote, a company that makes a note taking application by same name, has launched two new apps called ‘Evernote Food’ and ‘Evernote Hello’.
Both apps for iPhone and iPod Touch are now available on the Apple app store. Evernote Food app allows individuals to easily save and relive all of their favorite meals and food experiences, ranging from fine dining to home cooking to travel and exploration.
Evernote Hello makes it easy to remember people and shared experiences, as well as thoughts and impressions about encounters.
Evernote Food, focuses on capturing all aspects of a meal as they happen using photography, location, text and photo captioning. A single meal in Evernote Food can contain as many photos, notes, tags and captions as a person wishes. When a meal is viewed, it automatically displays any notes created in other Evernote products around the same time as the meal, giving additional context to the food experience.
All the information about the meal is automatically synchronised with the Evernote service, making it easy to find later within Evernote Food, as well as everywhere Evernote is installed.
The Food app helps in not just remembering the dishes, drinks and atmosphere at a meal, you can also track all the ingredients and steps in preparing a dish. People can also write and share restaurant reviews, manage their diet, remember food adventures while traveling
Evernote Hello, on the other hand, aims to modernise the standard greeting ritual. With the app, when two people meet, they exchange phones and quickly create a basic profile. Once added to Evernote Hello, individuals are displayed within a swipeable mosaic of faces.
When tapped, a face becomes a profile that displays a history of every encounter the two people have shared, along with other people who participated in the same meetings, location information and any related content from the user’s Evernote account such as notes and photos.
“The challenge with meeting new people is that we rarely remember all the critical information. We remember the face, but forget the name. We remember the name, but forget where we met. We remember the meeting, but forget the other participants. Evernote Hello is a modern fix to this classic frustration,” said Phil Libin, chief executive officer of Evernote. “It is designed to work the way our brains are wired, with a focus on faces and experiences. I’m excited to never forget a person again.”
People and encounters captured in Evernote Hello are synchronised to the Evernote Service and made available on all computers, phones and tablets where the Evernote application is installed.
