Springpad is closed, but to publish source code they won't be. They won't do more, and they won't allow to do this to someone else…

about Springpad and Evernote May 2014

See: https://springpad.com/blog/2014/05/springpad-says-goodbye/

Springpad has provided its users with a few ways of exporting their data "including a full Evernote migration, a viewable HTML data backup, and an importable JSON file for other services to use".

Sad to see them go.

I Agree.

I used Evernote for 8 months and found it frustrating to use especiall with the mobile apps. Since is started using Spring pad i have drpped Evernote. However once they implement an offline windows app or a backup/download option it'll be 5/5 for me.

Springpad is phenomenal and totally under-rated. Great Android app. Great search, social integrations. Just really solid. Check it out. Way better than Evernote. The web UI is very intuitive too.
