Evernote has announced the acquisition of popular image annotation application Skitch. The announcement marks Evernote's first acquisition and first major expansion in its set of products aimed at helping individuals capture their memories, ideas and experiences. Skitch co-founders Cris Pearson and Keith Lang will join Evernote to lead Skitch development and growth.
Evernote also announced the launch of Skitch for Android, the first Skitch mobile application.
