Evernote Expands Social Functionality With Two App Updates

mobile apps, linkedin, business cards, evernote hello, facebook, social appsEvernote iOS apps now allow users to scan business cards and make dinner reservations.

Yesterday, Evernote launched an update for its Hello app that allows users to take a photograph of a business card, much like LinkedIn Card Munch does. The app gathers data from profiles on LinkedIn or Facebook that connect to the same email address. It stops short of connecting the user to the business cardholder on LinkedIn, however.

The card-scanning functionality had been available only to premium subscribers.

Today the company released an update for its Food app that integrates OpenTable booking.

Evernote’s Food app aims to be a one-stop shop for all things culinary, uniting restaurant wish-lists, recipes and even food blogging.

The app draws restaurant ratings, photos and menu information from Foursquare’s API.
