Just over a month ago, we launched Skitch for iPad, the amazingly fun and useful way to visually communicate using your tablet. Today, we have a great update (1.0.3) that includes a new shape tool, parental controls, more language support and lots of stability improvements. We also have some tips to share.
Rounded corner rectangles
There’s now a fourth shape tool at your disposal: the rounded-corner rectangle! Tap on the tool and start making squares and rectangles to your heart’s content.
Skitch for iPad is great for easily communicating your ideas with colleagues and teammates. It’s also a fun, kid-friendly app, perfect for sketching and marking up images. In this update, we added several parental control options that allow users to disable the browser, location and photo features. To access the parental controls, tap on the “i” on the homescreen, then tap on the Restrictions tab.
We’ve added support for more than ten new languages. Now, Skitch users all over the world can start communicating and getting things done with the help of shapes and arrows.
You’ll notice that the latest update is faster and more reliable thanks to numerous bug fixes and improvements.
Use the marquee tool
One of the great things about Skitch is everything you draw and annotate can be selected independently and then moved around, scaled, re-colored, or deleted. To use the marquee, select the finger tool and drag across the screen to create a marquee rectangle. All items inside the rectangle will be selected. To deselect, or select a different group of objects, drag a new marquee.
Move text around
Once you’ve typed something, you can reposition the text by switching to the finger tool. Simply tap the text and drag it around.
Be sure to check out Skitch for Mac, too.
