Is it going away… or not?

I love this application for its simplicity and functionality.

Specifically, the ability to take a screen shot of an area of the screen and then hit a key combination to take another shot of THE SAME AREA. This is a huge timesaver for documentation purposes. Once I have my same-sized screenshots of a specific area, I can annotate them and write the instructions and everything looks nice and clean.

It does become rather sluggish and seems a bit buggy when you have nearly a thousand items in the Evernote notebook that Skitch is attached to, so I would like the abiity to limit the number of items that Skitch displays. Maybe that would speed it up a bit?

One of my Go To apps on my desktop...

I’ve been a Skitch user since it arrived as an add-on for Evernote. I’ve come to rely on it many of my work and personal workflows. For example, at work I’ve used it to take screenshots, annotate these screenshots, and embed them into Evernote notes for use as simple and quick How To for clients. In my personal world, I’ve been using it to take screenshots of a fly fishing fly video of the finished fly as an image reference for a fly tying recipe.

I was concerned a while back that Evernote was discontinuing this product but it looks like they’ve decided to keep it around. Excellent!

Definitely an essential and easy tool

Skitch is my go to tool for taking screen shots. It’s easy to use, has the features I need, and is always ready to go with the menubar icon. Its integration with Evernote is nice so that screenshots can quickly and easily be saved to Evernote. I also really like how the drag and drop works for an image where the skitch window fades away as you drag to make it easy to put the image where you want - e.g. in a folder or email. I have not found any other tool that works so well for screenshots. Thanks!!!!
