Skitch for Android Sees Big Update, Pen and Tool Enhancements

skitch android

The Evernote-owned photo editing tool know as Skitch received a decent update today on Android. First gaining fame as an OSX app, Skitch has easily become my quick-editing app of choice on desktop as well as mobile. It’s not advanced whatsoever, but it does allow you to make simple notations, point shiny pink arrows at things, and most importantly, blur out sensitive information on the fly.

In today’s update, the Pen tool has become “faster, smoother, and more responsive.” The Move/Pan tool also got a “clever” new behavior, there is a handy new Hold and Lock feature, a shortcut to the settings menu was added, and tips for newbies will pop-up from time to time. The app remains free.

  • Skitch 1 was AWESOME! Used it to illustrate books! Skitch 2 is really -2. Took away eraser tool. Undo is not eraser. Pencil tool 2 clicks, used to be 1. Color palette 2 clicks, used to be one. 3 brush sizes, used to have 5. Can’t send directly to twitter anymore. WORST OF ALL- took away select tool. Now you touch a line to select it. How do you draw a line from a line if it selects the old line? And it randomly selects groups of lines. SO DISAPPOINTED!

    Sure would like to see Penultimate come to Android. Penultimate plus Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and I’d feel fine about putting an AOSP-based ROM on the Note 2.

  • I thought about doing that. I got a t-mobile prepaid card to test it out. T-Mobile is utter garbage.!

      • The original title of this post was “Skitch for Android Sees Big Update for Android.” It has since been changed.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Isn’t this an Android site, yes?

      • Ah, we have a title change. The original title of this post was “Skitch for Android Sees Big Update for Android.”

        • EvanTheGamer

          Ohh…they must have changed that before I read it. Okay, fair enough.

          • The original title was awful, so yes, we changed it. 😛
