Evernote Acquires Image Editor Company Skitch

Posted Aug 19, 2011

Evernote has acquired collaborative image editing company Skitch. Evernote CEO Phil Libin said that this is the first in a series of acquisitions over the next few months.

Skitch is an application that allows you to share and annotate photos. It will be available in the Mac app store and it will have a new Android version. An iPad and an iPhone version is also being planned. Libin said that Skitch is “the most natural way you work on something back and forth with a teammate.”

Skitch is often times used for taking screenshots, adding circles, captions, and sharing. Evernote and Skitch will be more tightly integrated in the future. Evernote made the announcement at their first annual Trunk Conference in San Francisco.
