Is It Any Good?

With so many uses for Skitch, teachers are increasingly using it in the classroom, and kids may encounter it there. Its simple tools are easy to use, and since it's powered by Evernote, skitches can be saved and accessed across multiple devices and the web. As an image editor, kids may find the few controls limiting -- they can only add shapes, text, highlighting, or pixilate images. The real value, however, is that it adds a much-needed feature to Evernote. The ability to annotate images, maps, and screenshots and save handwritten notes expands Evernote's capabilities as a productivity tool.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
