Here of late I have been on a roll with applications that are cloud based; or in other words applications that you run directly from the internet. Recently I have been testing an online note keeping application called SpringPad.
In summary SpringPad is a totally FREE powerful online application that gives you the ability to store information. Look at it as your personal database of everything that’s of interest to you that can be accessed anywhere in the world where you can get to the internet.
For example, I use SpringPad to bookmark web sites, keep notes, maintain to do lists, clip information from web pages, reflect my thoughts, etc… All this information can be organized in notebooks or posted on your own digital bulletin board. There are also mobile uses for SpringPad available such as barcode scanning, locating nearby places and businesses and photo saving.
Think of Springpad as your own place in the cloud – a high-powered internet-connected personal database of everything that’s of interest to you, even if you’re not ready to do something about it right away. Everything is automatically synced between your mobile devices and the web for instant and universal access.
The one feature that is most important to me is the SpringPad Google Chrome Browser Extension. With this extension installed you can instantly save information you want to save without leaving the site you are browsing. If you are not a Google Chrome user, there is a bookmarklet available that will let you do the same thing.
After testing SpringPad, I can honestly say it has found a home on my PC. I encourage you to give this application a try. It is FREE, requires no installation on your computer and has so many features I cannot begin to mention them all here.
