Skitch for iPad Now Available

Share This:


Skitch for iPad was released in the iPad App Store yesterday. Skitch is a very cool, and fun, drawing and graphics app that has been popular on the Mac for sometime now. It makes it easy to markup and add captions to your photos.

Here’s just a little intro on some of the cool things it can do:

Use shapes, arrows, sketches and text annotation to get your point across fast. Mark up photos, screenshots, maps, and webpages then share them with anyone you like.
Skitch lets you:
– Annotate: Add arrows, shapes and text to existing images
– Create: Draw something new
– Edit: Reposition, recolor and remove your annotations at will
– Share: Send your sketches and annotations over Twitter and email
– Present: Show your work in real time via AirPlay on Apple TV
– Remember: Save everything to Evernote for later
Use Skitch to:
– Sketch and share
– Point out objects and locations in a photo
– Brainstorm design ideas with your team
– Identify a point of interest on a map
– Annotate a screenshot of your awesome high score

Skitch has been one of my most frequently used apps on the Mac for years, so I’m super happy to see an iPad version of it. I installed it yesterday and my first impressions are very positive.

Ease of use has always been one of my favorite things about Skitch on the desktop. It’s great to see that this has carried over to the iPad app. 

The ability to save easily to Evernote is another stellar feature of the app. Evernote recently bought Skitch and it’s nice to see they’re already doing great things with the app.

Here’s an App Store link for Skitch for iPad; it’s a free app.
