Skitch Acquired by Evernote

Evernote has announced that it has now acquired Skitch. Skitch is an application for the Mac that lets users annotate and share images which in turn, makes it another perfect tool for Evernote users to use.

Why Skitch?

We were drawn to Skitch (har har) for one simple reason: we love and use their product with Evernote. For years, one of our most requested feature areas has been related to improved handling of images and annotation capabilities. Our users take and share millions of photos and screenshots already, but the experience isn’t as good as it could be. We debated about whether to add the improved functionality into Evernote or build a separate app to handle it. Finally, we decided to do both. Thanks to Skitch, we will.

Evernote plan to make Skitch innovative to use and integrate it in to Evernote over the coming months.

Skitch was $19.95 prior to this announcement but is now available for free. When you download it from the Mac App Store you can log in with your Evernote credentials and link up the two services. Expect more integration to follow over the coming months.
