Updates to Springpad simplify the way you save
We’ve just released a number of improvements aimed at simplifying your Springpad experience. This set of changes is focused on simple saving and a clearer notebook view on the web. In addition, we’re releasing a new version of the Android app that includes the new simple saving along with an updated iOS app.
New Quick Add
Based on input from new and existing users, we’re simplifying the way you save things to Springpad. Now when you add something to Springpad, you’ll first decide what type of thing you want to save. Based on which app you’re using, we’ve elevated the most common save types to further streamline the save process.
And for those of you who want to save notes and tasks with fewer clicks, the keyboard shortcuts are still available for the web app.
Updated Notebook View (web only)
We’re introducing a new notebook display that is less cluttered, giving more focus to your notebook’s contents.
Additionally you’ll notice more personalization options for your notebook: a more dominant accent color and the option to add a notebook description.
The updated left-hand menu is now home to the “New Spring” button that allows you to add things to a notebook. Also, you’ll see a toggle to view or hide the notebook’s search and filter menu.
Along with this update to the notebook view, the sort & display settings will be “sticky” so that your last view will be saved the next time you access that notebook.
Other improvements, fixes and changes included in this update to the Springpad web app:
- Now you’ll be notified when a contributor to one of your notebooks add a new item (email sent within two hours of the new spring).
- Improved our search results to reduce the number of duplicates.
- Updated keyboard shortcuts to support new notebook view.
- Notebook navigation can no longer be customized in a notebook’s settings.
- Removed support for IE8 browser.
- Contacts can no longer be added via Facebook or Gmail, they need to be typed it.
