“I’ve got an app guy”
I’ve written before about the fact that the idea of “I’ve got a guy for that,” has been replaced with “I’ve got an app for that.” Now more than ever am I convinced that this fact is true.
A new app, Remame, has been developed to help users remember peoples’ names. Yes, you read that correctly.
Remame is designed for simplicity and speed in regard to retaining name information. According to developers, “Just launch the app and type a name or ask your new friend to type his name right in the app. Furthermore it has a few killer features like auto-detection of your meeting, importing to Contacts in one click, support of Today widget to keep new names at hand, and cool iMessage stickers.”
Remame utilizes simplicity by allowing users to type in the name of someone they just met.
With this, users can type a note about the person that makes them distinguishable from others.
The app will also work to help users fill in the location of the meeting, in addition to the time. Then with a single tap, you can import your new acquaintances into your contacts.
A widget is available for the today section of a user’s phone (iPhone) furthering the idea that a user will never forget someone’s name. Finally, iMessage stickers are available to use within Remame to enhance the note section and stipulate how a user feels about their new pal.
Keep your name wits about you
This could be beneficial at a networking event where you will want to follow up with individuals later, say on LinkedIn. However, you will still have to be good at remembering names up until you have the chance to enter them into the app.
It seems to us that you could just open up your contacts and add them the same way, but perhaps having a standalone app with a lone purpose will keep you focused on the mission at hand – remembering names.
