Evernote Acquires Skitch (Draw On, Annotate, Share Screenshots) and Then Makes App Free
Online note-taking service Evernote said on Thursday that it has acquired Skitch, a program for drawing and making annotations on screenshots.
Skitch, an early partner of Evernote, is currently only for the Mac. “That’s going to change soon,” Libin said, noting that such a program has even wider uses on tablets and other emerging devices.
Evernote is also making the app, which had sold for $20 on the Mac App Store, a free product.
Skitch’s founders also announced that the company has a free Android version ready and is planning versions for iOS and Windows, among other platforms.
