Burner + Evernote = your very own SMS bot

SMS-based bots, concierges and applications are a full-on trend these days, and for good reason: They’re lightweight interaction models that are super-convenient for people who rely on texting for everyday communications. As SMS is rapidly becoming our main inbox, this trend is likely to continue.

Burner’s new Evernote Connection makes it a snap to build and manage your very own, personalized auto-reply bot.

Using the Evernote Connection

Once you’ve set it up, anyone who texts a particular word to your Burner number–say, “directions”–will get an automatic reply via text with the contents of the Evernote note of the same name. If they text something that’s not a recognized command, they’ll get a full list of available options.

You’ll still see all the incoming and outgoing texts (including the bot’s replies) in every conversation, so you can deploy "Human Mode" any time you need to.

This is useful for anyone who needs to share information about:

  • Weddings

  • Band tours or other entertainment events

  • House rentals, especially through AirBnB, Homeaway, or VRBO

  • Equipment rentals

  • General customer support

  • FAQs (also see: FAQbot)

We hope you'll enjoy experimenting with it. Our business customers love it.
