Evernote has updated Evernote Hello with several new features primarily designed to improve finding and entering contact information. Evernote Hello is an app designed to help users keep track of new people they meet by allowing quick entry of faces and contextual contact info that can be easily viewed and recalled at a later time, leveraging the Evernote service as a form of digital business card folio and social memory aid. Evernote Hello 1.1 allows contact information to be entered by sharing the iPhone, typing it in manually or selecting from the iOS Contacts list, including instant search of the address book while typing. Contacts can now be searched for within the app by information such as name, e-mail address, location, calendar event and more. The new version also now includes language detection during name entry to adjust for cultural naming differences as well as automatic phone number formatting based on language and locale. Further, links can now be added to entries in the iOS Contacts app to jump directly into Hello from the system address book. Evernote Hello requires an iPhone, fourth-generation iPod touch or iPad 2 running iOS 5.0 or later and is available from the App Store as a free download.
