What was that other guy’s name in the call? When did you talk last? Who else was there? Forget trying to remember all these things. Connect Evernote to ÜberConference, and automatically save call summaries in Evernote of every ÜberConference call you have. Each note has a helpful snapshot of the call information, a link to recordings, photos of the people in the call, and a few fun things like stats on the people that talked the most and the least. See how it works in this video.

Evernote makes it simple to remember important details from anywhere, and it works across a wide range of desktop clients and mobile apps. Notes are automatically organized in their own ÜberConference folder, images are embedded in the notes so they load faster, and searching for a particular note by the name of the meeting or participants is a breeze.

Best of all, you can see your ÜberConference call summaries in the context of related notes. So for example, say you are putting an important meeting together. You can:

  • Create a meeting agenda in Evernote
  • Schedule a call in ÜberConference and add it to your calendar
  • Have the call on ÜberConference and record the call
  • Take notes during the call in Evernote
  • Automatically save the call summary and recording to Evernote
  • Link your agenda, notes, and call summary together with any other related notes for quick reference on Evernote

It’s been an exciting time since winning TechCrunch Disrupt, and we have been working on a bunch of new features. We are big fans of Evernote, and are glad to be announcing this integration as our first main release since launch along with a couple other new features -ÜberChat and Instant Conferences. We think the Evernote integration adds a great organizational feature for our users, especially for those that have to manage numerous conference calls.

To get started, just go to your profile page and click the Evernote button to turn it on. We hope you like it!

Like most people in the age of planes and the internet, UberConference and its users live international lives (UberConference is available on every continent [OK, maybe all except Antarctica]).

Sometimes, though, you need to meet in person, which means you have to hop on a plane and travel. Here are some of our favorite Google Chrome Store apps for traveling.

Duolingo

We’ve found that before you head to a new country, learning the language helps you communicate better with the people who live there. The Wall Street Journal said that Duolingo is “Far and away the best free language-learning app.” Duolingo gamifies learning another language, giving you lives and points, like your favorite gaming app. The effect is that Duolingo feels less like a class and more like Candy Crush. Buona Fortuna, amici.

TouristEye Planner

True, you are getting on that plane for business, but what’s a business trip without a little sightseeing? It’s pretty brutal. TouristEye Planner syncs all of your travel arrangements to help you plan your itinerary, letting you know what is nearby. There are also tours and itineraries created by experts and other users: one-day itineraries, shopping tours, tours to bike, gastronomic tours, best cheap eats, etc. One of the coolest features is the ability to synchronize your trip with your Android or iPhone to have your itinerary 100% offline, maps included! That means no getting lost because your carrier has a dark spot in Kiev.

Expensify

Undoubtedly, one of the worst parts of business travel is filling out your expense report. With Expensify, all you have to do is take a picture and smartscan uploads your receipts and corresponding information. Your office manager and you will thank Expensify after every trip.

Productivity consultant and founder of Custom Living Solutions, Joshua Zerkel, is also the SF ambassador for Evernote. Let’s just crown him the guy who really knows what he’s talking about when it comes to organizing data and being super efficient at anything to do with sharing in the cloud. Our Social Media Manager, Sarah Buhr, sat down to ask him a few of his great secrets for getting sh*% done.

Tips:

  1. Integrate UberConference with Evernote – When you integrate UberConference with Evernote, you have the option of sending any recorded call and notes to their Evernote account. Very helpful for journalists and writers or anyone who needs to save their conversations for later. Integrate with Evernote here.
  2. Utilize the Cloud - Think about how your data follows you around. Evernote allows you to keep all your files and other data in one central place so you can work from anywhere.
  3. Label your Evernote folders by topic and client to stay organized – You can collaborate with specific people easier if you separate everything out first.
  4. You can actually email notes into Evernote – Secret tip from Josh is that every Evernote user actually gets their own Evernote email. Go into your account settings to see it. Then if you use the @ in the subject line you can specify which notebook you want that info to go to. You can also use the # symbol to tag whatever you want it to follow as well.  Use this for receipts, events, really anything that goes into your email.

UberConference is about simplicity. So when you invite someone to a conference call, we make sure they get notified either by email or by text. Although this works great for the vast majority of your contacts, there are a few technology lovers out there with more than one or two phone numbers (our very own Craig Walker comes to mind :-). In such cases, you may not want them to be notified about the same conference call on all of their phones.

Starting today, when you schedule a call on UberConference, you can mouse over the attendees that you invite and see the option to select which of them you want to receive notifications and to which phones and email addresses if they have several. This choice is sticky, so we will remember it for you for future invitations.


Hope you like it. As usual, we would love to hear your feedback if you have any.

The big trend at this year’s CES is ‘mobile first’. The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) says this is the largest app event in the world! And our newly released mobile apps for iOS and Android are a part of it.

Check us out on the Wall of Apps, right in front of the North Hall:

And a close up of our display:

This is Brian Page from Vice and he is awesome! He’s working with the Wall of Apps folks and also incredibly helpful demoing UberConference to folks who come asking about our conference call mobile app. What a guy!

Come find our team (or tweet us if you prefer) @UberConference to let us know you’ve been by.
