You guys know what I still miss? Springpad. And, to some extent, Google Reader. What old, defunct web services do you miss?
I know there are other services that can duplicate Springpad’s former glory, but none of them really stuck with me as much as the original did. Google Reader’s death is still a sore spot, even though Feedly does just fine for me. ReQall is another simple, well-featured to-do app that was great before it decided to “pivot,” which inevitably resulted in its death. And hey, remember Astrid? (At least there’s a good clone of Astrid that’s still amazing.)
All of this got me thinking about web services we used to use all the time that have gone by the wayside — and the ones that we would still use if they were around today. For me? I would absolutely still use Springpad if it were still a thing. What about you?
