Evernote goes shopping, popular image editing app Skitch is the first stop
Evernote and Skitch will collaborate deeper in the future. “Not only will we be able to significantly broaden the reach of their product, but we will also greatly improve our own capabilities,” Libin said. “The roots of our company are in handwriting recognition, and all that stuff is going into Skitch.” Currently, you can share a photo between the apps by just tapping on the Evernote button in the Skitch.
Except for the deal, the value of which remained a secret, Evernote shared details about its yearly progress. Registered users of the application now stand at 12.5 million, nearly triple the 3.9 million a year ago. Evernote also attracts more users every day with 42,000 being the current number, up from 11,000 last year. The service is free, but there’s a premium option and the more a user remains in the Evernote ecosystem, the more likely the customer is to pay for the service.
