Springpad is one of those apps that allows you to save anything, anytime to wherever to want. Similar to Evernote and Pinterest but, a far better UI (User Interface) than the others.

Even so, I haven’t warmed to Evernote’s interface, although its recent app upgrade helped. Springpad, on the other hand, had me at hello. A free iOS and Android app and Web-based tool, Springpad has a visually appealing, Pinterest-like interface. The app integrates nicely with Web content, too. For instance, say you want to make a note of a movie you’d like to see. Search for the film’s title, and Springpad will populate your note with info about the movie, including its Rotten Tomatoes score and if it’s available on Netflix.
This new release of Springpad 4.0 (UPDATED: April 10, 2013) makes this already sweet app even sweeter. You can now embed your notebooks on a Web site or blog. Other Springpad users can subscribe to those notebooks, which are automatically updated in their Springpad apps whenever you update your shared notebooks. If you’re not already wedded to Evernote or one of its competitors—or even if you are—check out Springpad.

Cost: Free
