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.
Are you sad about Springpad? Still hurting after Bento, is this you? http://imgur.com/CNwOrCn
We’re sorry to see Springpad go. Helping folks get organized is a noble cause!
The team at Qollector would like to invite all the users of Springpad
to give our free iPad app a try.
We’ve designed Qollector for the professional. Curating everything is
simple. See your items everywhere, share with anyone, and find it
anytime. Design and catalog details of your recipes, travel logs,
diary, antiques, projects, contacts, and more. Share your catalogs on
the web. It’s easy to be organized with Qollector.

Some of my iPad friends might want to give this a try. As an Android user, it doesn’t meet my needs. At the moment, I’m leaning towards Trello as my Springpad replacement.
