Eight people walk into a conference room… This is either the setup for a terrible joke or the beginning of an endless business card exchange. If it’s the latter, then we have a great solution: the new Evernote Hello for Android. The latest version (1.4) of Evernote Hello adds new features that are designed to make meeting and remembering individuals or groups quick and effortless.
Evernote Hello for Android now comes with an innovative way to instantly meet a group of people. It’s called Hello Connect and it uses audio tones to identify other nearby Hello users and join everyone together. Have everyone in your group tap the main screen plus button, then choose Use Hello Connect. Once connected, you’ll have everyone’s photos, contact info and any other information that they have in their Hello profiles.
If you’re in a loud environment or would prefer not to use the audio tones, you can always switch to manual mode and tell everyone around you the four digit Hello Connect code. Everyone punches in the code on their phones, and you’re connected.
Hello Connect is available on both Android and iPhone, and will work across devices.
Evernote Hello lets you sign into your LinkedIn and (now) Facebook accounts. We recommend that you do this. It’ll make completing your profile faster and also pull in information about the people you meet as soon as you enter their email address.
To connect to Facebook and LinkedIn, tap the Hello icon in the top left corner of the app, then select Social Networks.
Sync with Google Contacts
To make it easier to keep your contacts up-to-date, Evernote Hello now lets you choose to save all the people you meet to your Google Contacts. This will ensure that you’ll be able to easily connect with everyone at any time.
In addition to everything above, this update also adds a redesigned layout for Hello Notes in Evernote and lots of stability improvements. Let us know what you think.
