iPad App News: Skitch annotation app lands on iPad

Add your own annotations to everything that appears on your iPad's screen

Skitch brings the ability to add your own flavour to absolutely anything that appears on your iPad's screen. It's a free app, so get downloading.

Popular annotation tool Skitch has landed on the iPad with a free app that allows you to add your own drawings and labels to anything that appears on your tablet's screen.

Skitch for iPad could come in extremely handy for those giving presentations or offering directions or simply want to have fun adding sketching annotations on photos from the iPad's camera roll.

For example, you can bring up Google Maps using the service and then add arrows and text to certain points on the map, or even draw a circle using the device's touchscreen.

You can bring in photos from your camera roll, take pictures with the iPad's camera or grab a screenshot from the iPad (using the press the power button and home button together method) making you free to annotate web-pages, photos or high scores from games you're playing on the device. The sky is the limit.

Naturally your newly-annotated creations can be shared via email, Twitter, can be sent to your camera roll or even to your Apple TV via the built-in AirPlay functionality. As the app is owned by EverNote, you can also send it directly to that app.

The company says an iPhone app is on the way.
