For those that were unwilling to pay twenty dollars for Skitch, it will be enlightening to hear that the popular screenshot markup software is now free on the Mac App Store. The price discount comes just hours after Evernote announced its plans to acquire the company in a conference held in San Francisco earlier Thursday morning. Skitch allows Mac users to take, edit, and share screenshots and has a wide variety of features and capabilities for quick image editing.
At the same conference, Evernote also announced the availability of Skitch for Android devices, which is free on the Android market effective immediately. According to Evernote’s chief executive Phil Libin, an application is also in the works for iOS devices as part of the company’s plan to “put Skitch everywhere.”
