Skitch, a popular annotation and sharing app, received an update to version 2.0 today with a redesigned interface, a handful of useful markup tools, and improved Evernote integration.

For those unaware, Skitch is an app that allows users to "communicate visually with friends, co-workers, or anyone." Essentially, it can draw in resources like notes, photos, screenshots, or maps, and then add markup to convey ideas or highlight important aspects of the document for later reference or sharing. The app was acquired by Evernote late last year, and today's 2.0 update gives Skitch the "full Evernote treatment."

This not only means a new interface, but full Evernote sync with improved integration (when Evernote is installed), the ability to view and edit Skitch notes made using the app on other platforms, and last but not least, a couple of new editing tools including a pixelator and highlighter. Users can also move, resize, and delete markup shapes, text, or drawings.

    finally. something about the old UI made it feel less like a great annotation program and more like a "OMIGAWD, LET'S DRAW ALL OVER OUR PICTURES SO WE CAN PUT CUTE THINGS ON FACEBOOK!"
    maybe I'll actually use it now :)

    Finally the mighty Holo Interface.
