Evernote Hello, the iPhone app that makes it easy to remember the people you meet, has been updated with a number of new features. The app now has a passcode lock option, making it more secure, and a number of improvements have been made to business card scanning, including the ability to control your camera’s flash.
For those unfamiliar with the app, Evernote Hello is like an advanced address book. It’s designed to store the contact details for every person you meet, with location information, notes, photos, and more. You can connect with people through Facebook and LinkedIn, and with users nearby via Hello Connect.
The app’s latest update adds a passcode lock for premium users, ensuring all the details you store can’t fall into the wrong hands. This is great if you’re daring enough to use your device without a lock screen passcode lock; or you can use the two together for double the protection.
You’ll also find a 30-day trial for business card scanning — a feature usually only available to premium users; the ability to edit title and organization fields for your contacts; and the ability to toggle your iPhone’s camera flash when scanning, which makes snapping glossy business cards much easier.
Finally, the update promises to improve business card scanning on the iPhone 4.
You can download Evernote Hello by clicking the App Store link below. It’s free to use, but if you want the premium features, you’ll need to subscribe for $5 per month, or $45 per year.
