Great improvements to Evernote Skitch for iPad and iPhone

Screen dump

Very good news for Skitch users out there. Evernote has released Skitch 2.0 (free), a very welcome update to the Skitch app. Skitch is a screenshot and photo annotating app that is very easy to use. With this update, all your Skitch images are synced immediately into Evernote into a notebook appropriately called “Skitch“. Beforehand, you had to tap a few buttons for each image to be sent to Evernote. Now, Skitch files will be made available for viewing on all your other devices: Macs, PCs, iPhones, even iPod touch. If you would prefer not to use Evernote, you can still save to Camera Roll, but there won’t be any syncing. However, it only takes a minute to sign up for Evernote if you do not have an account yet. Evernote as a complete service presents countless benefits to improving your organizational skills.

A great teacher workflow: Evernote + Skitch on iPad

My classroom at school is now kitted out with an Apple TV and an Airport Express (Father Christmas did eventually deliver!) so I can wirelessly mirror my iPad onto my board at the front of the room. This has really got me thinking about the joy of untethering from my IWB, but also threw up some questions about my workaday apps for getting stuff on the board for my students.

I was looking at my collection of drawing apps which I could use as a whiteboard space for outlining concepts and jotting ad hoc material. I have quite a few and tested them out as pseudo-whiteboards / slates. I don’t tend to do lots of Keynote style presentations and like to have a more freeform set of tools. I came to a free app from Evernote which I hadn’t previously used much, called Skitch.
