Review: Springpad

If you are one of those people who has too many things on their to-do list, and finds it difficult to organize your tasks? If so, (or even if you just want a new way to plan projects and remember important things) I recommend Springpad. Springpad is an application where you can create notebooks to save anything you don't want to forget, from recipes to bookmarks to your favorite restaurant. And it's all accessible via the web or your mobile device.

To get started on Springpad, go to www.springpad.com and sign up via Google, Yahoo, Facebook, or Twitter, or register with your email and password. When you log in, here is the first screen you see:

My Springpad homepage. Yours may differ depending on the amount of notebooks you have.

This screen contains your profile at the left (username, settings, logout), your notebooks, All My Stuff (all the contents of your notebooks), your friends stuff (if you have friends on Springpad with public notebooks, all their content will be here), and a search box to find anything in your notebooks.

To add a new notebook, click the plus button. Then you will be shown this screen:

The "Add New Notebook" screen.



Name your new notebook and give it a 'cover'. Then hit done.
To add a new task or note, click the + button next to the search box in the right-hand corner of the screen, and in the pull down menu click "add a note" or "add a task". For this example, I will add a task.

Add a task

First, name your task. Then add a due date. Select a category provided, or create your own. Add a brief description to this task. You can also add a second due date, such as a deadline. Just below the due date button, you may also tag your tasks to find them easily, flag the task, add a reminder, and add it to a different notebook.
Next, you may add attachements: photos, videos, links, or other files relevant to your task. Additonally, you can send the task to yourself or others via email, print it out, or send it to your phone.

Adding tasks is not the only thing you can do with Springpad. You can also keep track of your favorite products. Go to the drop-down menu in the right-hand corner again, but this time click on "Look it Up". Type in a product, such as a smartphone. 

Product search

If you hit 'add to notebook' you will be notified of price changes. You can also add places, movies, recipes, books, albums, wines, and people. 

Those are basically all the features of Springpad I would like to cover. 

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed the review!
