It’s a big day for Evernote in the iOS App Store. The developer updated both its Hello contacts manager and Penultimate, the handwriting app it acquired last year.

Hello was updated to include business card scanning, a feature that makes creating and updating contacts a breeze. There’s also new LinkedIn and Facebook integration, so you can connect with your contacts even when you are not meeting with them directly.

Penultimate was overhauled with deep Evernote integration that lets you sync your handwritten notes with Evernote automatically. You can also use Evernote’s handwriting recognition engine to search your handwritten notes. No matter whether you type or write your notes, they will always be searchable and retrievable. Evernote also dropped the price on the app and is making it available for free.

Both Penultimate and Evernote Hello are available in the iOS App Store. Penultimate is an iPad app, while Hello is iPhone-only.
