When I first saw Skitch, I have to admit I really didn’t get it. For some reason, it just didn’t resonate with me and I didn’t see a real need/use for it. I think part of the reason is the consumer oriented web site, packaging, etc. – marking up photos and sending them to friends isn’t really something I do.
However, over the last couple of months I’ve started using it as a business tool, and it’s been incredibly useful.
- Take a screen grab.
- Scribble all over it – arrows, comments, boxes, etc.
- Paste it into an e-mail and send.
It’s filling a very nice niche for me.
I see they’ve started noting this use case on their site as well, though the styling and focus of the site remain on the consumer.
