Man, it’s hard out there for app developers. You can provide a great service, make a beautiful and functional app to go along with it, but if you fail to monetize it, you’ll be forced to shut the entire thing down. That’s what’s happening to the note taking app Springpad.

They’ve been around almost since this Android thing began — 6 years and running — but after raising $7 million, they’ll be officially throwing in the towel and like Catch before it, claiming defeat against the juggernaut that is Evernote.

Nothing on exactly when Springpad plans on shutting everything down. Word of the closure was provided by a source close to The Verge, which mentions we could see a new product from the folks at Springpad. We’ll let you know should we hear something a little more official.
