Spring Partners has released an update to its Springpad iOS application adding support for recording audio notes and sharing information online. Springpad is an application and back-end web service that allows users to collect, record and quickly organize ideas and information while on the go. Springpad provides automatic organization of content and provides enhanced information for saved notes such as directions for places, showtimes for movies, price comparisons for products, and links to other related resources and information. Springpad 2.2 adds the ability to record audio notes either as separate items or attachments to an existing text note. Users can also now post items to Twitter and Facebook directly from the application with a link back to their public Springpad page. Additional enhancement include the ability to rearrange notebooks within the app and OpenID support for logging in with Google, Facebook, Twitter or Yahoo accounts. Several other bug fixes and performance improvements are also addressed in the update. Springpad is a universal app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and is available from the App Store as a free download.
