    Skitch Easy Screen Capture for Mac and Android

    Apple and Android devices are equipped with many alternatives for desktop sharing. But there is a tool which is far simpler than others. Called as Skitch it offers you easy screen grab for your desktop. Whether you work on Apple devices like iPad, iPhone, Mac PC or Android tablets/PC etc. Skitch offer you to easily capture your device screen and you can edit the same also. So here is a tool for you who offer you not only to capture the current screen but also edit or modify the same by uploading it on Evernote. The tool works with every image that is taken from webcam or is in your folders. The newly updated version of Skitch is much better and enhanced with many features along with sharing options. Evernote on the other hand allows you to easily share these docs and modify them as and when needed. Skitch app in collaboration with Evernote offers you easy sharing and modifying features. With single click you can share the picture wherever you want. Rightnow this app is available for free on Mac store. You need an Evernote access for this. Evernote offers you two plans. First one is free with some limitation and other one premium account for $5 per month with advance features.

    I am going to explain in detail about both tools and why there is a need of handy screen grabbing tools. I had noticed in some of chat messenger you can found a tool that can capture your screen part. Then you can share the same with the person you are chatting. Screen grabbing tools or screen capture are very minimal software’s which are hardly noticed. But in some places they are very helpful. For example you made some online payment and there is option to print. At that time a copy of that screen plays vital role for future references. In the same way if you have some reports made in software which is not possible to export in image format, at that time you can use the software. Skitch is beneficial because it work on both desktop and mobile platform. Especially for Mac version. You can use a friendly tool both on your system and android phone.

    As you get use to the same it becomes easier to work with editing part. A screen capture utility when mixed with editing feature becomes your digital paper. You can write on any photo, mark any important part, make a way on map, or just define size of anything you want. Skitch has all you need to do this. Just by capturing photo then saving and then using any third party tool for modification can be time consume. The app also works smoothly on iPad. See the below images. So well it defines the usage of this tool.
