We're not sure the world needs another offshoot of Pinterest and Facebook, but the new Springpad is just that: the once-private personal aggregator has gone public, revamping its iOS app and encouraging its users to share discoveries with their social circles. At its core, Springpad is something of a cross between a secretary and assistant. As you go about your day, Springpad collects everything you throw at it -- including bookmarks, article clippings, notes, and photos -- grabbing and sorting your digital paraphernalia via a complementary web clipper.
Few third-party productivity apps are as lauded as Evernote. If you're the type of person who insists upon always-synced organization of all your ideas and projects, the program is invaluable. But even as the Evernote desktop client stands high atop the pillar of productivity tools, its iOS app leaves something to be desired. If you're looking for an alternative, Springpad is probably the best bet.
