Evernote for iOS Gets Skitch Integration and More
Have you ever checked out Skitch? It's a service from the makers of Evernote that lets you easily mark-up and annotate pictures and websites, save them, and search for them later. It's an incredibly useful tool for communicating ideas or remembering key information.
Last week, Evernote released an update for Evernote for Mac that integrated Skitch into the application, and now that capability has been further integrated into their iOS apps for iPhone and iPad.
To give you some idea of what it can do, here's a video on the full Skitch for iOS app:
You will want to have both Evernote and Skitch installed on your device. To use, just open the note within Evernote that has the image you with to edit, tap the image, then tap the Skitch icon to edit it.
Additionally, the update brings complete sync among all your devices for Evernote Shortcuts. These are essentially notes that you've marked as your "Favorite" notes, and is an incredible timesaver. If you're like me, there are a handful of notes that you're referring to frequently, so this is great.
For Premium Evernote users, you now get a list of related notes at the bottom of any open note. You can also take the Skitch integration further with the ability to mark-up PDF files.
As I've mentioned before, I use Evernote every day to manage my blogging schedule. I keep a running tab of blog ideas in one note, and then have dozens of other blogs started, in various stages of completion. I've found Evernote to be invaluable to my writing as it allows me to not only keep my ideas and blogs organized, but also add to them wherever I'm at using my iPhone or iPad.
I also use Evernote to track client meeting notes, project details, templated letters and responses, and more.
What do you use Evernote for? And do you see yourself using Skitch to mark-up images and notes?
