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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 and MySMS have joined forces to give users the ability to store text message conversations to Evernote. The MySMS app lets users sync and send text messages with their tablet or browser. Using MySMS with an Evernote account will archive SMS messages to a dedicated Evernote notebook. Every SMS conversation is turned into a separate note and is updated whenever a new message is received.
