Well, this stinks. Springpad, the multi-platform app for collecting and organizing snippets of all kinds of content, is shutting down on June 25th. I’ve been using it for a number of years to store everything from meeting notes to recipes. Springpad has always been free to use and even though I and many other in the community would be more than willing to pay for their service, there is apparently no path to long term viability (or they’re being acquired, although this has been denied). So, they are turning out the lights.
I looks like I’ll have to find two replacements for Springpad, one for recipes and another for everything else. And both of them will probably be paid apps. For future start ups, please include long-term plans for funding your product into your roadmap, so that you can continue to support the community of users who come to rely on you.
