The iPad app is great, but I am having one major issue with it. I have had much better luck with the iPhone app believe it or not. I hope it works for you.

I just found out that once you join I just need your username or your email address so if someone wants to join but does not want to give out their email address to me then you can sign up for Springpad first and then just give me the username you made there and that is enough to get you permissions to add and remove content.

If you have Firefox or Chrome don"t forget to get the add-on for your browser.

What does the add on do for me?

I posted a recipe, can I edit it later to put a picture in?

The addon is just another way to access your Springpad stuff. It puts a button on the top right of your browser (at least in FF). When you click it you get quick access to all your folders and springs and can also add things through there.

Alix, yes you can edit to add pictures (and video and other things) at any time. Other people can add remove or edit things you put in the dc board as well. I added a picture to your lemon bar recipe. You can change if you don't want it there.

I have joined and followed, but it is going to take me a long time to figure this all out. I will start posting as soon as I am more familiar with it all.

Are we able to post original content? or just web based? I can't seem to find a way to add MY recipes.

I see PF was able to post a recipe but I still have no clue what I am doing so I think I am going to opt out at least for the time being.

I have lots on my plate with still dealing with grief and "Dad things", my pain clinic, total fatigue, and admitting brain function and physical strength are (and will continue to be) getting worse.

For a one time web developer it is something for me to admit I can't figure a site out! And I say that as a positive!

Once you are in, there is an Add bar on the top right. Click on that, then choose what in particular you would like to add to that notebook. On the DC one, scroll down til you find Recipe then choose Manually add recipe. You fill in the title, then hit Manually add. After that you just write out the recipe, or if you're like me c&p from your files.

Its pretty easy once you play for a bit. The photo bit is a bit tougher. I'm still working that out.

Yes you can post anything you like, original, non original, recipes, photos, music, videos, notes, random ideas, books, lists, appointment's, alarms, and anything else you can think of.

There are a number of different ways to do it and I am still learning them, but one way is when you are in a notebook you will see a search box on the top right. They call it the smart bar or something like that because it is more robust than the usual search bar. You type something in and it will search springpad or the web and will either find what you wanted or let you manually create a note. If it finds what you were looking for then it will try to recognize what it is and set up the form with options related to that choice. For instance, if you typed bolgnese sauce it would recognize that it was a recipe and give me the ingredients and directions fields. If I typed Hunger Games it would recognize it as a book or movie and give you amazon or rotten tomato reviews and links to purchase the book or movie tickets.

I am still very much in learning mode too so as I learn new tricks I will try to share them and if anyone has questions you can ask them here and I am sure collectively we can figure it out.
