Cool Tool: Skitch

Friday, October 1, 2021

Brainstorming has many benefits, including promoting ideation and innovation and solving problems. Skitch is a productivity app that can enhance your next brainstorming experience and help you communicate complex ideas in a visual way.

App users can create drawings or use arrows, text, and other tools to mark up existing images, webpages, and maps. This tool enables individuals to quickly provide input on visual designs, such as on a presentation slide or picture of a classroom arrangement, and then share with others. It also can help facilitators visually show learners where to find particular elements on a busy webpage. With relative ease, users can visually add clarity and provide feedback on a variety of items, reducing back-and-forth exchanges among collaborators.


Skitch is available for desktop and mobile devices, so users can take advantage of it on the job and on the go. The app and basic plan are free; premium plans for individuals and teams are also available.
