Springpad will then categorizes your saved content, and allows you to share your notes, set reminders and more. The app goes a step farther to analyze your content and then serve you alerts to relevant news, offers and deals. The app's semantic data technology allows you to save products, books, movies, recipes and more, and automatically get enhanced information, including price drops, local availability and coupons.
The support for Honeycomb includes features such as optimized display for the larger screen size and configurable widgets to create, save and view their notes for immediate access on the tablet homescreen. The app delivers cross browser and app sharing making it easy to save information from other sites and apps. Springpad's Chrome web app, which is ranked as one of the top 20 most popular apps in the Chrome Web Store, allows users instant and universal access to their Springpad account, even when offline.
Honeycomb tablet support is significant for Springpad because the app's growth has been fueled by mobile adoption. Nearly half of its users are using its Android app and a third are using Springpad via an iOS device.
Evernote has around 9 million users now and SpringPad just passed the million mark so the startup definitely has a ways to go. But the company's ability to add intelligence to notetaking and possibly monetize off of users with personalized deals, content and more could help boost usage.
