Remembering contacts through their picture on the iPhone

Evernote has released a new free app they call ‘Hello’. The app is for exchanging Business cards. I’m not sure about ‘exchanging Business cards’, but it is a fun way of meeting people and exchanging contact information.

The idea is that you hand someone your iPhone, they fill in the slots for their contact info and snap a photo of themselves. You could enter the data for them and snap the picture if you would rather not hand someone your iPhone. You don’t have to have a picture of the person in order to create a contact, but then why would you put them in your visual contact app?

The folks you add to Evernote Hello are automatically synced and backed up to your regular free Evernote Cloud location so you can see the info on any device you have syncing to your account.
