APPLICATION: Address Book — anyone have a good solution?

I’m really tired of struggling with various address books  — IOS, OSX, Android, Google.  Does anyone have an evernote template that could be the universal address book.  I remember an old Windoze app “Little Black Book” that just allowed one to print out specialize address books for different purposes.  For example, I used to print various ones for older relatives that only had “their” items of interest.  Now, it just seems to be a virtually impossible to print something that would look like an address book without a lot of manual effort.  Any suggestions?

Labels can make your inbox way more manageable. They’re kind of like filters (and you can set up a filter to send an email to certain labels). Labels live in the sidebar where you’ll find Inbox, Sent, Junk and other folders. Scroll down at click Create New Label. From there, you can name your label as well as group labels.

A filter can only yellow star a message.

I haven’t been able to figure out a work around.

Eventually this may “cook GMAIL’s goose” with me.

Maybe it’s time to move on?

I liked this app. And, my “older” friend’s wife LOVED it for the colorblind. I never thought of that

Color Name is your color assistant. You can either take a new photo of an object from within the app or import your own. Then pinpoint the exact color you want identified by dragging your finger over the photo, and Color Name will provide you with the name and its RGB values in real time. Tap on the name of the color to get even more details including values for CMYK, HSB, and HEX. Color Name will also provide you with similar Pantone colors.

You have trouble with color. Color Name’s massive database even allows you to simply browse through various colors. You simply don’t have use for identifying color names.

Do you have difficulties with saying what color it is? Take a photo and touch the color you need on the photo, and we will show you its correct name.

A younster was surprised that a fat old white guy retired injineer, who’s just a poor old senior citizen on a fixed income, would have SNAPCHAT on his phone.

I told her: “I don’t like it. I don’t use it that much. I don’t understand the UI.” 

Or something like that, because of course, the messages disappear. Argh!

I like to see what I said. And mull it over. See what the other person is responding to.

Also, it doesn’t save pictures. Even on my local “cameral roll”. YELP does that for me. 

AND, it doesn’t allow you to use an existing bitmoji easily. But it can be done if you understand that “create” doesn’t mean what I thought it did— from scratch.


P.S. Feel free to give me your insight.

RECOMMENDED: Google’s PhotoScan app

7. Search Scanned Photos

Google recently released a new free app called PhotoScan with the aim of letting you digitize all your old photos. If you’ve installed the app, you can access it by clicking the three lines at the top left of Google Photos, then clicking “Scan photos”. Going forward, simply search for scans whenever you want to see all the photos you digitized.
