Evernote Makes Business Cards Useful Again

Evernote and LinkedIn announced a partnership today that extends some pretty awesome tech to finally make use of that stack of business cards you have in your drawer.

Today, Evernote becomes an amazing business card scanning app. We’re happy to announce a deeper integration between Evernote and LinkedIn that enhances the way business cards are captured, displayed, and recalled in Evernote. Benefitting from LinkedIn’s network of more than 300 million professionals, Evernote can now automatically build a content-rich note around every business card you scan. With full contact information, a link to their current LinkedIn profile, and a photo, plus a section for notes, business cards become searchable contacts in Evernote.

Brilliant.
