What is it?
Skitch is a flexible app that allows you to annotate and edit photographs on your device. It allows for visual notetaking on photos or screengrabs, using labels, arrows, emoticons, shapes and text. Images can be exported as images, or sent directly to Evernote.
Free. Premium version with advanced features.

How can it be used?
The app can be used to very quickly and easily create annotated teaching material. It can also be used for students to use in coursework or class exercises, for example labelling strata of the earth or parts of the human body, or making meaning out of photographs they have taken. This is a deceptively simple tool that has a lot of applications.
