Get more out of every day

    Hi Jeremy,

    I opened a Springpad account yesterday to have a look at it and I do agree with you that I cannot see it replacing my evernote.

    Perhaps I do need to go through Daniel’s book but although I see benefits on this app, I cannot see it in my workflow.

    When I was testing Springpad and trying to addapt it to my GTD flow, I got the feeling I was going back to managing multiple notebooks in evernote.

    Do you agree with this?

      Hi Andre. Yes, I’d agree with your comment. I see Springpad as a more collaboration approach to organization (especially with the “board” feature), and less about implementing GTD.

      That’s really interesting, because I feel exactly the opposite way. I was never able to fit Evernote into my GTD workflow. Springpad seems like a much more natural fit, to me, with its handling of checklists and tasks, plus the ability to “clip” pages and notes. It doesn’t quite replace all the functionality of Evernote, but it seems to go quite a bit farther toward making me stick to my GTD.

      Funny how different people use the same tools differently.

        Sean, that’s exactly right! It’s beautiful that the choice exists. Certainly what works for one person may not work as effectively for another. Springpad is very visual, which is great. But I’m a coder at heart, so anything text suits me fine.

    Springpad is now compared to Pinterest, not anymore with Evernote. I wonder what’s better.

      I think Springpad is a bit of both, with a much more personal touch. You can still take notes and create lists and tasks with Springpad – you can’t do that with Pinterest.
