If you were to throw Evernote and Pinterest in a room together and give them enough time to breed, the end result would be Springpad 4.0. That's not to say anything bad about the new Springpad update, of course – both Evernote and Pinterest are fantastic apps. And their little bundle of joy got its father's usefulness (Evernote) and its mother's good looks (Pinterest). It's a win all around.
Existing users of Springpad should still feel right at home in the app, but will notice a more streamlined approach to accessing their "Springs," which also includes Springs from followed users as well.
