We have some exciting news for our Skitch for Mac users today. The latest update (2.0.2) includes a Skitch Menu Bar Helper which lets you take screenshots and use keyboard shortcuts even when Skitch isn’t running.
There are two ways to use Skitch from the menu bar. You can either click on the heart icon and choose the option you want, or you can simply use one of the keyboard shortcuts to take a screenshot of the entire screen, or just a portion of it.
In addition to the Menu Bar Helper, we also added some nice text editing improvements and made the app more reliable.
This update is currently available as a direct download from our site. If you downloaded Skitch from the Mac App Store, then your update should be available very soon. If you would prefer not to wait, then drag Skitch from the applications folder into your trash, and download the app from our site.
