Use Skitch And Maps To Remember Your Neighbours’ Names

If you’re horrible with names, you know the embarrassment of forgetting who your neighbours are. Finer Things in Tech recommends using a maps app and the annotation app Skitch to keep track of those neighbour’s names.

The idea here is incredibly simple. Finer Things in Tech explains it like so:

Spreadsheets aren’t really my thing, so I used Apple Maps to zoom in on our street to the point where we can see basic house structures and took a screenshot. Then I opened that shot with Skitch for iOS and started annotating. It’s not a painstakingly polished system, but it’s working for now.

Sure, it’s a bit over engineered for some people, but if you really can’t remember those names and where they live, it’s a system that works. At the very least, it beats trying to peek in their mailbox in the middle of the day.
