Skitch Comments

Evernote is ending support 1 Helpful

about Skitch and Greenshot Dec 2015

It seems Evernote is ending support for Skitch. You can download and backup the installer to keep it for the future, but there won't be updates (source: Lifehacker).

I went looking and found a good alternative: Greenshot. It does the same and more than Skitch.


Just Tried Windows Version...

It's not as powerful as I expected, it's just very simple, however the size is large for its features.


Good for mobile..

about Skitch Nov 2012

I like skitch for mobile (both iOS and Android), but the Mac app isn't that good. On mac and windows I use Small Picasa iconPicasa which I find better and more intuitive. If you want to take screenshots I recommend Small Jing iconJing which is just awesome for that!
