    "No Longer Fast / No Longer Intuitive on Mac"

    January 26, 2014  |   By mdh99208

    Version: Skitch 2.7.1

    Pros

    Price
    Allows for instant variable screen capture
    Elementary alpha character set
    Notation color options

    Cons

    Where did "Fill" go?
    Where did the eraser go?
    Too Many screens involved.
    Console is cumbersome
    Forced use of second software program. WHAT?
    Missing Software Feedback to creator information in program.
    Misleading size adjustment option (actually a crop option?)

    Summary

    Will no longer use 2.7.1
    No thank you to Evernote.
    Way too much time spent attempting to do things I used to do on the older versions very quickly.
    I also need to return to the file history system of before.
    Where can I get the old version, and can I recover my old
    Skitch history?
    To the developers: Please consider returning to the old format, and work on upgrades to that. Kiss this one good-bye and users will be smiling again.

    "Little handy app"

    December 7, 2012  |   By merindakrow

    Version: Skitch 2.0.2

    Pros

    I am absolutely satisfied with it.

    Cons

    Can't find any

    Summary

    The app is not overloaded with useless options. It just does its job. Very good for a free app.

    "HUGE step backwards for all existing users"

    October 19, 2012  |   By Faulersack

    Version: Skitch 2.0.1

    Pros

    The 'old' Version 1.x used to be an awesome Screenshot tool that I and many of my friends used. 2.x is NOT!

    Cons

    NOTHING is as it used to be. I did love and use Skitch every day, but today I can't even figure out how to downsize an image I have in Skitch, pretty much every step I was used to has changed (or the feature was removed).

    Summary

    Yes, Evernote got me to use my inactive Evernote account again, but it doesn't turn me into a happy customer with this Upgrade, that is in fact a downgrade. And thus I will now in fact UPgrade to the 1.0

    "DO NOT UPGRADE to Skitch 2.x of you are a user of 1.x."

    September 29, 2012  |   By RustyIron

    Version: Skitch 2.0.1

    Pros

    This used to be an awesome product. Get version 1.x if you can.

    Cons

    Version 2.0 syncs your system intimately with Evernote. There is no avoiding it. Every few minutes, Skitch reports on communication status with Evernote's servers. I do NOT want all my clipboard items uploaded to someone else's web servers.

    Summary

    Skitch was indispensable. Now Skitch is bloated and uploads your activity to the publishers own servers. Check this through the Mac App Store to see HUNDREDS of other negative reports.

    "This is seriously my favorite app"

    February 24, 2011  |   By ctierney

    Version: Skitch 1.0.3 (v4163)

    Pros

    As a web developer I love using this to capture bugs on the site and pass pics of them around as URLs, and you can comment, and mark up the images, etc.

    Cons

    I liked the fact that you used to be able to send just the image and not the whole Skitch page. But, I suppose it's only fair to make people use their interface, since they are providing us with such a great service.

    Summary

    I know that there are other ways to accomplish the same things, but, Skitch is so easy and such a great interface, that I love it. I think it's a great tool for capturing funny stuff on the internet, especially if it's hard to reproduce, like an ad, or a bug. Anyway, I feel this is a great resource for anyone who does web development, and also great for archiving just stuff that you like from different eras.

    "Easy to use and doesn't hog resources"

    January 13, 2011  |   By rich65

    Version: Skitch 1.0.1 (v3984)

    Pros

    It's a very easy to way to grab selective screen shots for educational presentations.

    Cons

    There really isn't anything I didn't like about it although I'm sure that some power users will find it slow and the interface a bit limiting.

    It's simply the best snapshot tool for the mac, and the integrated free web hosting gives it the extra points for ease of sharing.

    "Skitch Rulez!"

    January 12, 2010  |   By ctierney

    Version: Skitch 1.0b8.3

    Pros

    I love Skitch, it's so cool how you can share and I had no idea having a camera to take pics of what you see on the internet would be!

    Cons

    I wish they had a version for your phone!

    Summary

    This is one of my top 3 Apps for Mac.

    "Five Stars!"

    April 19, 2008  |   By purplewombat

    Version: Skitch 1.0b6.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    What a fantastic tool this is! If your not a techy person, download Skitch because this application is made for people like us. It's fun, fast and so very useful for heaps of different situations such as quickly inserting pictures into your email or just grabbing a picture that takes your fancy when browsing the internet to store for use later on. Every Mac user should have this handy little app sitting in their dock. It's an absolute delight!
