If you travel a lot then it is quite obvious that you will be meeting new people again and again and it becomes really difficult nowadays to remember their names or other information about them. First thing which you might do on your Facebook is sending friend request to new people whom you have met, but then still it is not necessary you may find them there due to redundancy in the names.
To get over this problem, Evernote has developed an application which will help you to save all the encounters which happens with you throughout the day. Its simple interface will help you to save important information about those people and will help you from getting embarrassed (when you forget their names).
One launching the application Evernote will ask you to login using a previous account or to create one. Once your crate an account you will receive a confirmation e-mail from Evernote and the screen will appear as mentioned below. Now, this application will not let you proceed until you fill your important details related to your contact information.
Once you are done with these, you can start with adding about your first encounter with a person. Now there are three option with the help of which you can create an encounter, if you do not know that person or even if you know but you do not have his/her contact details then you can use the first 2 options to enter the contact information but if you already know that person and you have his contact then you can add him from the contact list (through third option).
You will see that home screen of this application will change and now your first encounter with any person will appear. Second time, if you meet that same person again then you will tap the same encounter icon on the home page then tap ‘DONE’. Remember that the application will put the recent encounters first followed by the older encounters.
Now if you are adding new contact information then the screen will appear as mentioned below and where you will add the info.
While adding a photo for the contact 4 consecutive shots will be taken and merged to take out the best appearance of the person. The screen is mentioned below.
Let me also tell you that every time while adding an encounter, the location details will also be added to that encounter. You can delete any of the encounter by tapping the cross icon and then confirming it will ‘OK’.
You can take a look at the video mentioned above, to get a better understanding about the importance of the tool.
