Evernote Hello for iPhone is our favorite way to remember all the people we meet. Today, we’re adding a number of nice enhancements, including a new Premium feature, better business card scanning and improved Address Book integration. Let’s take a look.
Business Card Scanning
The business card scanning feature in Evernote Hello is really great. It’s a Premium feature, but we’ve decided to extend our preview for Free users. It makes adding people to Hello as simple as snapping a photo. Plus, if you connect the app to LinkedIn and Facebook, we’ll build rich profiles automatically.

In our tests, we’ve found that enabling the flash is the best option for consistent business card photos. There are cases, especially with glossy cards, where the flash ends up interfering with our ability to recognize the text. That’s why we added the iPhone’s familiar flash controls to the camera. If you’re snapping a glossy card, you can turn the flash off—just try to be under good lighting conditions.
Better support for iPhone 4
We’ve made a number of improvements and adjustments to the app to make sure that our iPhone 4 users have a great business card scanning experience. Give it shot.
New Premium Feature: Passcode Lock
For an extra level of security, Premium users can enable a passcode lock, which will display whenever the you launch the app. To set the lock, go to My Profile and swipe to the bottom of the screen.
