Posted by Andrew Stevens on April 19th, 2013 + Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Skitch receives an update adding the ability to view PDF documents by signing in. Users will be able to try a free 30-day preview of PDF support, allowing them to mark and share ideas, while premium users have full access. It also adds Stamps allowing you to give feedback by approving, rejecting or alerting parts of an image.
The wait is over. Skitch for iPad is finally here. Evernote purchased Skitch and launched the first app for Android in August and “iUsers” have been jealous ever since. As of Thursday, the popular Mac desktop app is now available for mobiles devices on the App Store. Sure, I could have used an annotated screenshot to tell the audience in fewer words, but then I’d be out of a job.
The goal of the app is to tell more with less. If a picture is worth a thousand words then Skitch is worth that and then a few more as it allows the user to use shapes, arrows, sketches and text annotation to get their point across quickly. They can mark up photos, screenshots, maps, and webpages then share them with anyone they’d like to. Web site developers might find this useful for when showing off their design to clients and instead of asking them what their changes are they could just ask to draw them.
