Evernote Buys Image Annotation App Skitch, Making it FREE Download
Former twenty dollar great Mac App is already available as free download.
Evernote CEO Phil Libin announced at Evernote Trunk conference that the company has acquired Skitch, a Mac annotation, screen grab, and sketch software.
“We really expect this to become a fundamental part of Evernote going forward.”
The announcement is for the $20 app to “eventually” be free. But the price is already updated on Apple’s software store [Free, Mac App Store]. iPhone and iPad versions are being worked on and should be expected in the future.
Andrew Sinkov wrote on Evernote blog:
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.
Skitch: Camera for the Internet, Demo video
The free Skitch Mac App is NOT a trial, (said to have) no ads, and no restrictions. Evernote will also add additional integration with Skitch with its iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac app. Awesome.
