Evernote has announced the purchase of locally developed Skitch, signalling a nice windfall for the original developer Cris Pearson and a smart extension to the powerful Evernote platform.
The popular screenshot tool Skitch is launching on the iPhone today and Evernote, which bought the tool about a year ago, also just released version 2.0 for Mac and iPad. With this update, Skitch is also paring down Skitch’s smart but idiosyncratic user interface down to its bare minimum, leaving a lot of functionality that the application’s users always loved behind in the process.
Earlier this month, Evernote launched version 2.0 of Skitch, the popular screenshot tool the company acquired in 2011. Sadly, Skitch 2.0 didn’t just do away with Skitch’s idiosyncratic but highly functional user interface, but it also dropped a number of features in the process. Version 2.0 currently has a 1.5-star rating in the Mac App Store and almost 600 1-star reviews.
It’s been over a year since Evernote released Skitch in the Google Play Store, and they’ve been hard at working keeping the app up to snuff, despite a few complaints from users. The new update brings a refreshed interface, a few new toys and tools to play with, (Pixelate and Highlighter) and a long overdue feature, Evernote syncing capabilities.
Last week it was revealed that personal data management app Evernote would integrating Skitch – the image-editing app it acquired last year that has now seen 10 million downloads — further into its service, grandfathering Skitch.com in the process.
Evernote and its companion app, Skitch, have both received updates today that are some pretty handy productivity features. First up, Evernote has now been given the ability to edit Office documents, such as files from Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, thanks to integration with MobiSystem’s OfficeSuite app.
Was researching the evernote as a replacement to Microsofts OneNote. Although evernote doesn't have a linux client (and they would be smart to get this going) there is a opensource that has been developed using the evernote api's. Its call nevernote (also nixnote) and there is rpms for it but I was wondering if anyone is running it from these released rpms?
Productivity app Evernote today is announcing that it is teaming up with Honda and the Japanese carrier Docomo to launch the Evernote Accelerator, a month-long mentorship program based at Evernote’s HQ in Redwood City for developers and small startups from around the world that are making apps using Evernote’s APIs.
Evernote today announced version 2.0 of its business product, appropriately called Evernote Business 2.0.
CEO Phil Libin introduced the product onstage at Evernote’s EC3 conference and said it will be released next week.
