Thank God we have Evernote
I am pretty sure that many of you will definitely agree on the fact that Evernote is the most gorgeous program to capture, organize, and find information across multiple platforms.
The first time I got to know this great application was at the very beginning of this semester, when my colleagues hold a nice presentation about “Increasing Productivity” in our Business Applications class. Following their recommendation, I gave Evernote a chance and immediately fell in love with it as Evernote makes my life so much easier. Today, I can only hardly imagine to live without having Evernote as a reliable companion that helps me to keep track of everything.
Hello Evernote Food
As I have already mentioned in my last week’s outline post, in the following I am going to introduce you to Evernote’s latest applications: “Food” and “Hello”, particularly focusing on Evernote’s Food app.
These new apps for iPhone and iPod touch devices were announced exactly 1 week ago at LeWeb conference in Paris, and are designed to help you remember what you ate, as well as the names of the people you are eating with.
Evernote + Food = Evernote Food
“Meals are a vehicle for conversations, romance, ideas, family, exploration, and so much more. Let’s give our meals the Evernote treatment they deserve.”
That’s how Evernote promotes it’s new application. As a matter of fact, “some of our most memorable moments happen around food”, and nutrition is not the only reason for us to take food everyday.
Therefore, Evernote has created a Food app which enables people to capture all aspects of a meal through pictures, location, text and photos. All information about the meal is automatically synchronized with Evernote which makes it easy to track down later. Visiting Robin Wauters‘s Blog, I got to know the applications of this Food app. :
Application of Evernote Food
In general, it provides us the opportunity to
- save dishes and drinks we have recently had
- build a catalog of custom recipes
- review restaurants in the neighborhood or abroad
- share food experiences
- manage our diets
Although “Food” and “Hello” seem to be a great invention of Evernote, there are also other bloggers who are not that enthusiastic about these applications.
Amongst others, Dan Rowinski remarks that “neither of these new apps are incredibly original”.
Furthermore, he argues that there are other services available which already have these functionalities, such as Facebook. According to Rowinski, both Evernote and Facebook strive to become the main place where users record their private life and share it with their friends. Finally, he resumes:
“if you are a heavy Evernote user, you will probably end up using Hello and Food. If not, there is probably no reason to do so.”
In my opinion, “Food” and “Hello” are great applications suggesting Evernote to become a destination for all kind of notes- not only notes of your business or studies but also those of other spheres of life. As I am not such a huge fan of Facebook, but love Evernote, these applications really appeal to me. In addition to my existing Evernote account where almost all my uni stuff is stored, “Food” and “Hello” would be a perfect supplement. Moreover, I prefer to have one single place to collect all my notes, and Evernote with its new applications could be an excellent solution for me.
Personally- even though I cannot tell anything about the practice yet- the idea of these applications has already convinced me. Therefore, I will definitely try out these apps and I would recommend you to do likewise. Keep in mind that you can download them for free so you have nothing to lose.
