Screen shot sharing app Skitch was recently updated to version 2.0, but without a number of features that were frequently used by a number of its users.
It received a lot of criticism from for removing features like the ability to minimize the app to the menu bar or to resize images by grabbing the corner of a window. Also, users were no longer able to choose the file format of their screenshots; it could only export .PNG files.
However, Evernote, the company that owns Skitch, has heard the uproar and responded. The company is releasing an updated version of Skitch with a number of changes -- and made Skitch 1.0 available for download again.
Here's a quick overview of the changes:
- Choose your file type: there's now a filetype selector in the Drag Me tab, where you can choose between PNG, JPG, GIF, TIFF, BMP
- Smarter screen snap: you can modify selected area or change it to specific dimensions
- Improved sync options: it gives you control over how/when you save notes to Evernote (Always, Ask, Never ask)
- Flip and rotate: new Image menu options that also get keyboard shortcuts
- Multi-select in the Library: to easily delete unwanted images
- New keyboard shortcuts
- Change arrow directions
- And the old version of Skitch is available for those who still want it
The update has been sent to Apple and should be pushed to the Mac App Store soon. It is a free download. [Direct Link]

Glad I put off updating...
Had a pretty epic drop from a four/five star app to a one star app. Well deserved thrashing on the App Store. They deserved it for ruining the app.
To be fair, your first gen iPod Touch is now five years old. That's ancient in mobile computing terms - also, it still does everything you bought it for and, in fact, more, since native Apps didn't come along until later.
The iPad 1 has been less well supported for software updates but, even then, it was two and a half years old before it stopped getting the latest OS. Compare that to any other tablet on the market and that's pretty fantastic post sales software support. I saw someone complain about "rapid obsolescence" with the first gen iPad and I wondered if that was really fair. Is two and a half years rapid in mobile computing? And it's not as if it no longer does what it used to do. Why do people expect their old hardware to gain new features, for free, years after they bought it? I don't expect my toaster to gain new features, or my oven.
well im waiting for the imacs. maybe the buyers guide should stop counting in days and go by the ios or iphone versions. apple probably sets their calendar by that cycle.
in both the ios and the mac os. apple creates the ecosystem so ultimately they are responsible for these problems with updating but as you say they want all your devices to be disposable.
