Trying to direct someone’s attention to an element of a site, program, or document can be frustrating when they’re not looking over your shoulder. At MediaStyle, we encounter this problem regularly when we’re training clients or sharing notes on designs. We were pretty happy to discover Skitch, an app for Mac recently acquired by Evernote, which allows us to take screenshots easily and then annotate them with arrows, highlighting and writing. Best of all, a smart integration with Evernote’s family of apps makes generating a link to the content easy. The app stands out for its recognition that sharing is as integral to the creative process as the creation of the initial product. Some programs, like notorious word processers or spreadsheet makers, make passing on work frustrating. Skitch helpfully considers the workflow of creatives. We know we’re not the only ones who face these challenges, and Skitch is a highly recommended solution.
