Have you ever had someone come up to you and start a conversation, and for the life of you, you couldn’t remember his or her name? If you have a hard time remembering people’s names you meet, plus trying to remember where you know someone from, the NameCatcher app is a great little assistant on steering you clear from that awkward situation. The NameCatcher app is for the iPhone at $.99.
The name catcher app allows you to enter in a person’s name, label that person with a category of how you know them, i.e. around town, business, on vacation, restaurant/bar, etc. You can also give yourself a hint as to what connection you had with that person, and also if you wan to put them on your “A” list of people to stay in contact with. You also have the capability to take someone’s picture and upload it to this profile (of course when you don’t think that would be weird for the other person).
When I first started diving into this app, I thought, yeah this is great, but when I’m at a social event, I don’t have time to just enter in all this data into my phone. There’s a feature that diverts this issue: a recording option. Just record yourself saying the person’s name, contact info, and what connection you made, and then go back in and create an account for them later.
Lastly, there is also an option to save this account to your phone’s contacts, which also keeps you from doing double duty work of re-entering someone’s info in your contacts.
