Great app, with a few tiny annoyances.

Skitch is a massively useful app for making quick edits on screenshots, playing with or pointing out details on photos - - as well as pixelating sensitive areas in photos such as faces or license plates - -, sharing information between creatives… the list goes on and on. Being iPad-friendly really makes it useful in a higher level too, for editing smaller graphics and text that are too tiny to edit on your phone. All in all, it’s one of my favorite apps.

The only real issues I’ve had with it are it’s propensity to crash after editing images and trying to save them in certain ways, such as “sharing” an image to the app via iPhone sharing in the camera app directly as opposed to using the app in a stand-alone fashion and then selecting the image from your photo library. When you share to the app it almost always crashes after hitting the “Done” button and you lose your edit. Always use as a stand-alone app and then select the image from your photos and you’ll have a much better experience!

The only other things I find less than exemplary about Skitch is its limited color palette and somewhat limited selection of drawing tools, but these are really tiny gripes; the app is truly a gem!

If I could give a 4 3/4 star rating, I would. It’s better than four stars but not quite a five.

Essential planning tool in Clash of Clans

Virtually everyone that I know in the Clash of Clans community who is serious about clan wars uses Skitch to draw out their battle plans and attack strategies for review, enough that it has become a verb "go Skitch that plan". There are other software solutions, however Skitch is by far the best and as a clan leader it distresses me to think that EverNote is considering discontinuing it. I require members of my clan to use Skitch, and am hoping, considering the huge number of people playing Clash of Clans that they will reconsider.

Skitch allows us to take a screen shot of the town we plan to attack and clearly indicate troop and spell deployment, with color coding and labels to clearly indicate the details of the planned attack. I truly hope that EverNote realizes what a gem they have in this product and does not discontinue it.

The last basic photo editor you’ll look for

Can open from the edit option in pictures or thru the app directly. Does arrows, boxes, lines, text, blur sensitive details, and can easily adjust what has been done. Multiple color options so it stands out on any background…. I could go on. I’ve used this app for years and cannot count the number of times it’s come in handy for personal or work use.

Some notes on other review topics:
-You have to deselect the edit you are doing or it thinks your still working on it and won’t save that.
-there is no baby sitting tutorial on how to work it, but it’s not rocket science. I hang my head on how some people cannot figure out basic things like this on their own. Touch an option, pick a color, touch the screen, drag and release. Practice with all the tools and figure out the little differences. The only “sneaky” thing is the option to outline text by touching the letter on the text box.
-don’t think it’s ever crashed on me throughout the years of use, but honestly I never open the app directly. I select edit options on the photo I want to edit and select Skitch for my editor option.
