If you find yourself constantly running in to people and not recalling their names, Designed to track all those people who don’t make the cut of your actual address book, Whoodl lets you enter in a name (you’ll have to remember it first, of course) followed by whatever keywords or descriptors you like. Searching for a keyword brings up all the associated names.

Whoodl has a nice-looking user interface, but it’s too basic. Each time you enter a name, you have to type in new keywords—it would be nice if the app saved previously used terms for faster entry. There is also no way to browse the keywords you’ve created. The only viewing options are to search for a specific term or view all names (with no keyword associations).

Because Whoodl’s premise is centered on the inability to match names to faces, I’m surprised that Whoodl doesn’t have the capability to include a photo with each entry.
