Despite my best efforts, I'm not great with names. Since my wife and I just bought our first house in a Chicago neighborhood we've never lived in, I wanted some help remembering the names of all our new neighbors. 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.
Have you needed help with names in a new area? Got a different system that's worked for you? I'm all ears.
