Everybody loves Evernote and their products. Over the period of years the company started by Phil Libin launched several different products but their most popular one is definitely the one company is named for. To further explain how startups can use Evernote’s products, Emma Page from the European offices took the stage on the first day of RockPaperStartups conference.
Evernote Hello: Forget about business cards
Emma pointed out that founders have enough on their plate: they have to manage the project, hustle for investment and go to conferences in order to network. Often they will bring a pack of business cards to hand out but they are easy to loose and do not provide the best solution for connecting with somebody in the year 2013.
Therefore, Evernote developed an app called Hello which plays the role of a digital notebook in which all the contacts are stored. The app has several really cool features such as exchanging information with a group of people based on a jingle. Users can also scan a business card and the app will automatically pull out all the information about that person which can be found online.
Becoming a power user of Evernote
As we’ve already said, Evernote is company’s most popular and most used app. It let’s users store different pieces of information into notes and notebooks. Since pen and paper are still used on daily basis, we tend to write vital information on this medium. Digitalizing the content manually is a pretty huge wast of time – therefore Evernote masted the used of snapshots.
With the mobile app developed for all major mobile platforms, users can simply take a screenshot of the text they’ve written on the paper and the app will save it automatically into a notebook. Also worth pointg out is the search feature which let’s users find a specific word in a hand written note they’ve took a screenshot of – yes, Evernote can recognize your hand writing!
Emma added that Evernote can be a really powerfull tool if you’re running a startup since it will help you with all the information you face up to. No task is big for this app and with the help of a special Moleskine Evernote notebook (which few of the lucky attendees won), the whole world can fit right into your pocket!
