Springpad Gets Smarter with App Update

Springpad, which bills itself as “the smart note app,” released an app update today that makes it even smarter, adding in features to integrate with other apps on your phone and provide relevant, dynamic content.

The new version gives users ways to take information from apps and websites and bring it directly into Springpad, which then automatically enhances what they save with relevant news, alerts and offers, and continues to do so as new information becomes available.

For example, if you share a restaurant from Yelp’s app to Springpad, you’ll automatically get information about the restaurant including menu pages, alerts to deals of the day, directions to the restaurant, links to reservations, etc.

Other features added to the new version of the app include:

  • A configurable “Save It” widget that lets users quickly save notes directly from the Android home screen.
  • A “List It” widget that lets users access what they’ve saved that’s most important to them. For instance, users can choose to have access to incomplete tasks, recent alerts or flagged items.
  • User-requested enhancements to sorting and navigation as well as the way saved notes are displayed and organized in Springpad.

Android users have a number of strong options in the notepad category. With more than 1,000,000 downloads, Springpad is already among the most popular, and this update should help as it continues to compete with the likes of Evernote and Catch Notes.
