Here’s a short tale of my list-making woes: I’m going shopping and I need olive oil, so I write down “olive oil.” This somewhat sensible decision quickly turns into 20 minutes spent staring blankly at the supermarket’s wall of olive oils. Or when traveling, I’ll write “visit the Corn Palace” only to misplace any relevant information about its history or importance.
You’re right, I should be more organized, but this whole process needs to be easier. My lists shouldn’t be denser, they should be smarter. Enter reQall’s Evernote integration.
reQall in their own words
reQall is a voice-enabled memory aid that seamlessly integrates your mobile phone, email, text messaging and IM into a powerful organizer, reminder system and productivity assistant. reQall lets you capture your ideas, tasks and commitments before you forget, and it proactively keeps you well-prepared and memory-strong.
reQall used the Evernote API to make lists and reminders incredibly useful. Whenever you speak or type an item into reQall, their service automatically searches your Evernote account to find any related notes. Then, when reQall reminds you of your task, you can quickly call up any relevant Evernote content without leaving the reQall application. It’ll even search for keywords inside of images.
Why this is cool
Here’s a Food Month-friendly example of why this is exciting. You’re throwing a dinner party and you need to pick up supplies. First, create your shopping list by speaking or typing it into reQall on the web or your iPhone.
Once at the store, tap on “Zinfandel,” and reQall brings up the note in Evernote of a Zinfandel you loved while on a trip through wine country. Need some wine glasses? Good thing you clipped the page from Crate and Barrel into Evernote.
The beauty of all this is that it’s incredibly simple and doesn’t require changing your workflow. From shopping to event planning to business meetings to travel, everything you need to remember is right at your fingertips. No extra effort required.
The Evernote integration is a part of reQall Pro. Sign up for reQall on their website, upgrade to Pro, then link your Evernote account from the Settings menu. Make sure to get reQall for iPhone from the AppStore. Learn more from reQall.
