I stumbled upon this new application for the iPad called ‘Skitch’ by the Evernote team. In short, the application creates a photo from a screenshot or a web page. If you already have photo’s – then the bonus is that you can use these straight away.
The beauty of the Skitch application is that it then allows you to draw freehand on to the screen thus overlaying your sketches over the top of your images. All sounds pretty simple, however, this is truly a great application for web devlopers who are often reviewing pages and sites. The number of times I have to give feedback on new screens, new designs or I need to make notes for later reference is phenomenal – and this little freebie is a god send.
They have added a few extra great features to make your note taking easier, such as lines, arrows and boxes. You can of course vary your colors and you can add your own text.
Some easy to follow instructions can also be provided for people with some great visuals. The files you create can be easily shared via email or whatever other method you choose to share your photo’s. This is because Skitch just adds the end result to your standard photo library. Its a really valueable integration feature and such a likeable application.
Its a pity that its not working on my iPad 3, so I had to review it on an iPad 1. Which in itself was a bit of a pain, and there are clearly a couple of bugs. As I understand it this is their second public version, but it certainly has some great promise.
Any other similar applications that you use for this sort of activity?
