Evernote Launches “Hello,” Helping You to Always Put a Name With a Face

Nothing is more awkward than the feeling that you’ve met someone before, but you just can’t remember their name. The hugely popular note taking app, Evernote, is looking to help you with that with their new application “Hello.” Instead of stacking your contacts in an alphabetical list like most phones, Hello looks to save your contacts under pictures, names and unique notes that make people memorable. 

There are a lot of neat features with this application. When you make a new contact you can fill in information like what you were talking about when you met this person, who else you were with when you met this person and you can even hand the phone to them so they can take their own picture. You can pull from your current contact list and future upgrades will allow integration with other social networking sites to get even more information on each person.

The best part about this is that it all ties in with your existing Evernote account, storing all your information where you need it. The application is working to make remembering people in your phone more like you do in your mind. It’s an interesting concept that will only get better the more you use it. Hello is live in the Play Store available for download now.

    Hey I just met you, and this is crazy, but here’s my phone, so enterYourInformationAndTakeYourOwnPicture, maybe?

    : I’ve always used my contact list to store peoples full name, and add notes about them (like where I met them and at what event, what area they live, what they do, age, etc). If we add each other on a social service later, I simply pull a picture from their profile & add it to theirs on my phone. It sometimes is a little time consuming when playing catch up, but this way I rarely run into this problem.

    95% of my contacts have a photo. Usually, when I go to call or send a text to someone, I think of their face, and when going through my list, I look at the pictures first. Definitely not the fastest way, but I’m horrible with names of new friends I’m always meeting out.

    Looks like a nice app… but this really duplicates what the built in contacts/people app already does… why would I use it?

  • It’s Windowsphone integration for the rest of us.

    “future upgrades will allow integration with other social networking sites to get even more information on each person.”

    There goes any interest I had in this.

    That awkward moment when you pull your phone out to take a picture of them because you might NOT remember their name on the future.

    Sense already does most of this already

      Yeah, i don’t know if its google contact app or moto’s blur, but my contact list automatically goes out to facebook to find pics of everyone. I downloaded this, and it hasn’t found a single image yet. They need to add facebook integration if they want this to pull pics.

      Be great for when your buzzed and you pick up women at the bar and then forget their name in the morning

    It’s cool that it pulls in info from other websites and everything, but I still don’t get how this helps you remember people. Does it let you search for something about a person to bring up their contact info? Or are you just supposed to flip through a bunch of pictures until you find their face?

    It seems like a really well thought out and full featured contacts app, I’m just not quite buying the marketing angle here.

    Seems pretty useless until Google Glasses…

  • Illinipoke

    Hello… I wont remember you in 5 minutes so can you take a picture of yourself for me?

    Hello…. I don’t remember you…give me a minute to thumb through my phone to find your picture…. Ohhh..Stephanie? Damn you have gained weight.

    • Illinipoke

      So far this is a fail, my phones contact app works much better.

    • I was taking a drink of water when I read the last part and now I need to dry my keyboard…
