Evernote Acquires Skitch, Will Offer It Free [Updated]

Evernote, the notetaking and archiving service, announced today it had acquired image editing and sharing app Skitch for an undisclosed sum.

Skitch is currently available on the Mac App Store for $19.99, but Evernote CEO Phil Libin said it will soon be offered for free as a "fundamental part of Evernote going forward." He also announced versions of Skitch for iPhone and iPad to be released soon as well.


Evernote recently raised $50 million in a venture round led by Sequoia Capital meant for expansion and new acquisitions.

Update: Skitch is now free on the Mac App Store.

so what's the difference between this and the screenshots functions besides adding arrows to pics and uploading them to the web?

Jeez.. A cute purple-pink, strawberry scented bear with the irritating voice of a bored middle aged man that tries to play it cool. Who the hell had the idea of this presentation.. These people lack taste a big time…

Did they use Tay Zondai for the acting???????

Skitch is okay, though it has a horrible icon and a clunky interface. Still, it does what it needs to do.

Evernote is great for notes you don't really care about for the very long term, as it's extremely easy to add notes but extremely hard to get them out and open them in other programs.

And I got mixed feelings about having paid for something that's now free.
