One of the more popular posts of April’s A-Z challenge was the Comparison Post on Notetaking apps, with the top three being Evernote, Springpad and the newly free MS Onenote.
Springpad has just announced it will be closed down as of 25th June 2014.
Migrate to Evernote
With around 200,000 users, the app has a data migration function which will allow data to be moved over to Evernote. If you go to the Springpad website you will find the covering letter and a direct “Export my Data” button on the homepage.

Find a Alternative Productivity System
On the Google+ community for Springpad, a spreadsheet has been shared listing some apps that users may want to check out. These aren’t necessarily note-taking apps, but rather productivity apps – so a lot of these tools won’t fit some criteria required.
Top of the list currently is Zimilate, but the spreadsheet also does not feature Evernote which would meet all the criteria and then some.
Pricing and other options like how mobile apps perform are also a rolling target for many apps on any comparison sheet, so I would recommend using this as an excellent base to jump off from, for selecting a system to suit.
From the Idea Pump, you can find the google drive spreadsheet, and check out these options yourself.
