For users who prefer keeping digital copies of notes, receipts, and the likes, chances are you might have heard of the app called Evernote which does exactly that, while syncing across a range of devices meaning that you will have access to them anytime and anywhere. Well the good news for business people who collect tons of business cards, you might be pleased to learn that Evernote has recently issued an update for its iOS app in which it will now allow users to scan business cards and converts them into a digital contact.
The app will rely on your iOS’ camera and will convert the data it scans from the cards into an editable contact card. Unfortunately it seems that this feature will only be available for Evernote Premium subscribers, so if you’re a regular Evernote user, you’d be out of luck. Apart from being able to store the card as a digital contact, it will also be able to pull additional data from social networks, allowing you to add more details to the contact, such as photo, email address, and etc. It will also allow users to automatically send an email to your new contact with your information, which can be pretty handy when you might not have your business card on your person.
If you’re an iTunes Radio listener, you might be interested to learn that Apple has recently released an update for its Remote app which will now allow iTunes Radio listeners to control playback through their smartphone/tablet when listening to the service on their Mac or PC. Previously the app was limited to just controller iTunes on the computer, as well as being used to navigate the Apple T V UI. The app is free for download for those who are interested, hit up the iTunes App Store for the download.
The Remote app was released many years ago, but it was only recently that Apple has given the app a much-needed update in terms of the visuals department. The app has since been redesigned to go with the look and feel of iOS 7, which has a cleaner and more minimalist design. Some criticize the new look of iOS 7, but at the same time there are just as many iOS users who claim that it is about time Apple did something with its UI, at least compared to the likes of Android whose look has been constantly evolving over the years.
