15 Minute App Review – Skitch

If you’re looking for a simple way to annotate images on your iPad – take a look at Skitch by the makers of Evernote.  Evernote has released two other applications recently in addition to Skitch for iPad.  Evernote Food released December 7, 2011 and Evernote Hello on December 7, 2011.

Skitch makes it very easy to take a photo or a screen shot and add arrows, text, or lines right on the top.

The interface is intuitive – right after the launch, you can see your options for importing images.  You can choose from your camera roll, your photos, and your photo stream which is a very handy option for editing screen shots taken on your iphone.  The editing tools are simple and easy to understand and the export options range from an interface to your TV (using additional hardware), sending to Evernote, tweeting, emailing and exporting to your camera roll.

Read below for additional information and check out the video link.

Business Value/productivity value – 5/5

This app is perfect for me.  It allows me to edit photos and screen shots very easily and will save me a lot of time.

Ease of use – 4/5

All the tools are simple, but not being able to resize text boxes without inserting hard returns in the text is a detriment.

Likelihood of usage 5/5

I plan to use often.  Many future reviews will feature screen shots annotated by Skitch.  The app has only been out for a few days and I’ve already found a few handy uses.

Graphics and Sound 4/5

There is no sound that I could hear.  It would be nice to have some simple sounds that give you an auditory confirmation of your actions though I hardly find this to be a problem.  The graphics are simple and easy to understand.

Overall 4.5/5 –

A great and FREE application from Evernote.
