Sometimes you must explain a rather intricate detail to a friend or family member. This could be a specific location, key instructions, an item on a piece of paper, in short - something to which you wish to call attention. This makes it much easier for the recipient to look at your note, photo or email and find the item you are trying to pinpoint.

Skitch for iPad does a fantastic job of providing plenty tools with which to highlight the important information you wish to get across. With Skitch you use tools such as shapes, arrows, sketches and text annotation to explain yourself easily and quickly. Pinpoint items on photos, screenshots, maps, and webpages so that those you share them with will "get the message" very quickly. Some of the clever and detailed features of Skitch are as follows:

- Annotate: Add arrows, shapes and text to existing images
- Edit: Reposition, recolor and remove your annotations at will
- Share: Send your sketches and annotations over Twitter and email
- Present: Show your work in real time via AirPlay on Apple TV
- Remember: Save everything to Evernote for later
- Point out objects and locations in a photo
- Brainstorm design ideas with your team
- Identify a point of interest on a map
- Annotate a screenshot of your awesome high score

Can you see the value of Skitch in your personal or business life now? There are so many uses for this handy app, and just the right tools to make even Grandma Sally understand what you are trying to show her (which may be an item on sale, or coupon at her local store)! In the business world, Skitch comes in useful as you make presentations which outline the important facts using arrows, text or shapes. Integration with Evernote makes this app even more handy as you save your special notes. Go ahead and simplify your presentations or thoughts to a friend using Skitch to simplify your words-the recipient of your notes will be happy to receive simple-to-read ideas.
COOL CONCLUSION: "Skitch for iPad with its options such as snagging websites along with an intuitive, directional interface makes it a must-have productivity app."
