Springpad is shutting down their Services

I received this morning an email from Springpad informing me that their Services will shutdown indefinite on the 25.06.2014. and I should be migrating all my stored data into Evernote or storing them locally. I remember SpringPad since beta but I have not used it as much as Evernote. Interesting enough is the comment on their page saying that several of their Team Members moving to Google. Below a snipe of the mail

  1. I am curious who may have bought out their app platform or intellectual property rights. Springpad was a really unique service.
    For the past year, Springpad has been going full steam ahead towards building a great service. It definitely had everything going for it. They did a bunch of Google HangOuts, YouTube Videos, promotional appearances on shows like TWIT, all those really cool pre-configured template notebooks they recently introduced, the intuitive Chrome Springpad clipper extension, why did they suddenly throw in the towel? They even had Peter Walsh, a celebrity personal organization guru passionately pitching Springpad. Along with other various productivity specialists, he how he set up his awesome personal notebook into a free Springpad template notebook. All the notebooks I checked out were beautifully designed and so user-friendly.
    There are some great features I will surely miss. Springpad clipper formats recipes from the web even better than recipe software I’ve subscribed to (the pictures are where they’re supposed to be and everything automatically).

    You know I think I’m going to go make sure I copy all my recipes off Springpad right now instead of wondering if Springpad might re-emerge somewhere….like Evernote? Pinterest? Also Microsoft has simultaneously been developing OneNote into the amazing platform I’ve been yearning for it to become. Could the platform been bought out by MS?
    Or was the Springpad business model just not viable? There wasn’t a paid Springpad Premium subscription as far as I know. Nor do I recall any advertising (but I use ad-block, so maybe there is?) The article did mention something about not getting funded. But certainly they could have sold the technology!
    I’m going to go make sure I get my recipes saved. I was just doing a web search to see if I could find out what the deal was and your blog popped up. I didn’t think about Google…. thanks for pointing this little factoid out to me:)
    take care!
