Skitch: Mark Up Your Pics On Your Phone

Skitch: Mark Up Your Pics On Your Phone

We’re huge fans of Skitch here at Gizmodo — it’s the easiest way to quickly illustrate something on an image. And now you can add all the colourful arrows, circles, notes and drawings you want on photos right from your iOS or Android device.

What does it do?

Skitch is an app for iOS and Android that gives you shapes, arrows, text and other illustration tools to let you mark up a photo to get your point across fast.

Why do we like it?

First and foremost, it’s a straightforward and simple way to demonstrate something on a photo. Waiting for a handyman to come fix a leak in your place? Take a picture and slap a few arrows on it to point out the problem. Done. It’s also just fun to Skitch up a pic, and we use it all the time! In fact, the other night I took a screenshot of an image on Facebook on my phone and emailed it to myself so I could load it to Skitch and point out someone doing something dumb. Skitch is effective like that. Plus, from the app, you can show your image on Apple TV via AirPlay, share to Twitter and email, and upload your Skitches to Evernote. [Cult of Mac]
