One of my favorite and most used apps, the already awesome Skitch [Mac & iOS - free] screen capture app, has received a major update across all platforms. Now a part of the Evernote empire of amazing apps, Skitch 2.0 has received the full Evernote treatment. It still does all the wonderful screen capture and annotation functions it always did, but with a cleaner interface and full Evernote integration.
One new tool added to the annotation toolbox is the pixelate tool. This can be used to block the view of personal information (like usernames or email addresses) in a capture. And, while you can still drag your captures to the desktop to save them on your computer, they are also sent to your Evernote account. Now those snapshots are available on your iPhone and iPad too and both the content of the shot and the annotations you add can be searched by Evernote. You can edit annotations made on one device with any of your others and, of course, your snapshots can be shared just like any other Evernote note.
The iPad app got a major update too giving it even more functionality and making snapshots easier. And, the iPhone app is new – and just as handy. I’m just getting started with the iOS versions, but I’m sure I’ll have more goodies to pass along soon. Don’t let me keep you from discovering what a gem Skitch is for yourself. As with everything else coming from Evernote, it’s easy to use and always useful.
