Skitch for iPad was updated last week, to Version 2.0. This is a major update for Skitch, and the headline new feature is full integration with Evernote.
Evernote bought Skitch about a year ago, so this integration is not a shocker – but it’s still hugely useful. Evernote is one of the most feature-rich and powerful note-taking apps for iPad, iOS, the desktop and just about everywhere. Now the Skitch app prompts you to create a dedicated Skitch notebook in Evernote and syncs everything you create and annotate over to that notebook.
Here’s the remaining items on the change list for this update:
✔ Skitch is now available on iPhone!
✔ Create and edit across multiple platforms
Mark something up on your iPhone or iPad, then continue editing on your computer. Simply login to Skitch and all of your screenshots and images appear everywhere.
✔ Point something out
Take a photo, snap a webpage or start with a blank canvas, then use arrows, shapes and text to draw attention to what’s important.
Pixelate feature lets you protect sensitive information in documents, webpages and photos.
Share your images with friends and colleagues.
Skitch is a very neat, useful little iPad app, and one of our past selections as Best Free iPad App of the Week. It’s great to see it getting a substantial 2.0 update, and the Evernote integration is a great new feature.
Here’s an App Store link for Skitch; it’s still a free app and is also a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
