I'm another former Springpad user. Primarily I used the barcode scanner, and used it a lot. Whenever I saw a product or book I wanted to remember, for whatever reason (gifts, future purchase, recommendations for friends, etc.) I always scanned the barcode. For years, I've avoided Evernote because it lacks this basic and incredibly useful feature. Now that Springpad is going away, I came hoping to see this functionality was going to be added. Disappointingly, it doesn't look promising. So, I'll continue my search for other note/organization apps that include it.
