We have a great Skitch for Android update for you today (1.4). The latest version adds the ability to annotate a map, save sketches to your SD card and more. Here’s the latest:
Maps in Skitch
Skitch is great for eliminating ambiguity: draw attention to a person in a photo or point out where that new sofa should go. And now, you can even take the ambiguity out of giving directions. With the new map feature, drop a pin with an address, then use arrows, shapes and lines to show exactly where you mean.
Using the map feature is a two-step process. Tapping on the Map icon on the home screen launches a live map. Here you can pinch, pan and zoom or search for what you need. Tapping anywhere on the map will drop a pin to mark a location. Now that you’ve framed your map, it’s time to mark it up. Tap on the Skitch icon to begin annotating the map with arrows, text and freehand lines. When you’re finished, you can save or share the map.
It’s the ideal way to highlight a great camping spot or illustrate a walking path. Once you’ve made the sketch, share it with your friends or save it into Evernote for safe-keeping.
Save to the SD card
This is one of our most requested features. Now, anything you have in Skitch can be saved to your SD card. Do this by tapping on the Save icon. You can also find your saved images by tapping on that same icon.
Move your text
We also made it easier to add and move text. When you start typing, your text appears in place over the image. Tap and drag the text to move it to a different location, pinch the text to change its size. You can do all of this without changing to the finger tool. Easy.
Besides these new features, we’ve we’ve also fixed a bunch of bugs and improved the app’s stability. Lots more to come.
