Skitch, the popular annotation app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, has received a useful update making a number of changes to the free application. One such change concerns the app's design: a new, "swipe-able" interface has been added to Skitch, making it easier than ever for users to start new Skitch markups. Users can swipe between Photo, Camera, Web, Maps, PDF, Drawing, and more from inside the app, and this mode of navigation feels far more intuitive (and is a lot easier) than the old method. PDFs can now be shared using social services (like Facebook and Twitter), and the app makes this possible by generating an Evernote link. Given that Evernote is the developer behind Skitch, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that the application now integrates better with Evernote's note-taking service, too. In the app's release notes, Evernote explains:
The toolbar is now easier to use and interact with, and a selection of more minor improvements and bug fixes have been applied in the update, too. Skitch's last significant update arrived in April, making it faster and simpler to share images from inside the application. Before this, Evernote added emoticon stamps to the app in January. You can download the recently updated Skitch on the App Store free of charge, and it's optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. [gallery]
- Saving and Sharing from Evernote has gotten better! Now you can pick a notebook to save to or get a share link by saving and sharing from your account.
- Evernote related favorites will show the notebook name and an icon to make it easy to tell which ones save to a Notebook and which ones save & share.
Skitch - Snap. Mark Up. Send.
