    Hi there, does anybody here use Springpad? I'm considering moving from Evernote to Springpad because of the latter's ability to store notes offline on my iPad. I'm not a power user, but offline storage is critical to the functionality for me - and $5 a month is way too much IMO.

    Just wanted a quick heads up in terms of basic functionality, ability to email to your Springpad account etc. etc.

    Any feedback is much appreciated!

    Yes, I use Springpad and quite happy with it.

    I stopped using Evernote when they demanded I must be online to see my notes (or else become a paid member).

    I also like the Springpad interface better. My online gripe with Springpad is that they don't allow rich text formatting in notes :p

    Thanks mobi, appreciate the feedback.

    Do I understand correctly, there is no PC offline interface (yet), but the mobile and ipad apps allows offline saving of all your notes?

    I didn't check any PC interface but yes it does allow to work/save notes offline.

    Last night I worked on it with airplane mode turned on and worked fine.

    I used Springpad for awhile and liked it. But when it was updated (don't recallwhen) I can no longer use it on IE9 on my computer but can access with my mobile device. I can't email with it at all. Any suggestions as to an alternative besides evernote?

    I moved the thread to the iPad Apps area, it will probably help you to get more attention.

    I've only just started using Springpad and already I feel what a great leap from Evernote it is. Like mobi1, I stopped using Evernote because I didn't have offline access to it.. I have a WiFi only iPad so the ability to open up Springpad without Internet connection is HUGE. I also didn't feel like paying $5 just for this capability, so I made the jump... I'm so happy I came across Springpad!
