Evernote Acquires Skitch, Promptly Announces Android App

Evernote posted on their blog today that they have acquired Skitch, a software platform that lets users draw and annotate screen captures and images.  Designed originally for Mac desktops, Skitch will make for a great way to enhance the note-taking, photo-capturing experience.  Wasting no time at all, Evernote immediately announced that Android will be the first mobile platform to see a native client released.  How soon will we get our hands on this new app?  Not long at all, it will be available in the Android Market later today!  

Calling Skitch for Android addictively fun is an understatement. It’s the perfect way to quickly add your mark to any image. Take a snapshot of something awesome, draw an arrow and add a caption, then post the image on Facebook. When you’re at a conference, snap a picture of the people you meet, annotate it with their names and save it into Evernote.

Head to Evernote’s blog to get a full understanding of what Skitch is and how it will work for your Android phone or tablet.  We can’t wait to get our hands on this and try out the various features.  Evernote was already one of our favorite apps, recently landing on our 50+ Essential Apps for Back-to-School, so we can only imagine the Skitch integration adds to its value.
