Like you I found Springpad difficult to implement as a task manager and I’ve used other solutions to this point. The lure has always been there to try and get Springpad to work as an all in one solution, as it’s being marketed.I have been giving it another run with the relaunch and to be honest, it’s hard work. Capturing items in both web and mobile is slow…which is a shame because the android app was very quick before.
I still think it’s worth persevering with though. I’m hoping that once the glitches are ironed out implementation will be a lot smoother. While it’s easy to see why people are so frustrated, on the flip side this is such a powerful app for free. It just needs some tweaking for usability and it would be ahead of most paid apps in my opinion.
