other (Archived) why not skitch for windows?

Recommended Posts

hi,

I'm happy evernote user.

Now I testing skitch but I notice 2 problems:

1) no version for windows

2) in android not possible to save project to later editing (the first time I lost my project...1h work! ... :-( ....)

So if you don't have a Mac Skitch it's realy not fully valid.

Thanks,

Andrea

That's good to hear... as I'll very much look forward to using it on my Windows computer. :) Thanks for the reference, BurgersNFries.

Evernote does not usually release ETAs for feature releases.

Having just taken a job in a Windows-centric environment, I can't even begin to explain how crippled I feel right now without Skitch!!!

I mean, thank god that I have Evernote on this box. But the inability to snap screen shots and annotate them with the power and ease of Skitch is just killing me and my productivity. I'm dying to show these people what it can do!

That would be nice to have for Windows, sure a lot of us hate Windows, but it's what a lot of us are using :) We will wait patiently...or try to :)

Hi, I have a touch screen Windows 7 PC and I am disappointed that I cannot use Skitch with Evernote - come on developers, you know it makes sense !

It's in the pipeline. No ETA. Patience is a virtue.

I'm also stuck with Windows when working with some clients, so I look forward to Skitch for Windows soon - hopefully!

@heather,

I can't seem to find a download link on that page and jumping to the App WebSite goes to the usual Evernote/Skitch page with no mention of the Windows (beta) version described on the page you linked to. Am I just not seeing it?

You can download it directly from within the Metro Appstore, in Windows Metro.

@heather,

Ok thanks. Don't have Windows Metro. Hopefully Evernote does a wider release soon.

That link wasn't very encouraging. I saw a whole lot of complaints about Metro in it.

Metro's not "final" yet. It won't be released until October, so yes, there's lots of people who would be complaining about the way it works right now, especially when they try to install it on machines it's not designed for.

I can say that for touchscreen devices, it really is a great, full-featured OS.

Will screen capture be coming to Skitch for Windows? It's not nearly as useful without that fundamental feature.

Although programming skitch for Windows Metro is good and forward looking, I think you may be missing a huge portion of your user-base if you don't also develop a version for Windows 7 as well.

I'm confused. Is Skitch for windows not coming to Win 7 and maybe XP? Only Win 8?

Oh...I hope not. :(

At work, there is no chance that we will go to Win8 in the near future. We are firmly embedded with Win7. And I have no particular desire to upgrade from Win7 at home...I really like it.

If there is no Win7 compatible version of Skitch coming, I will be crushed. :(

I agree, not developing for Win7 is a bad idea, I work for an IT-company who's customers are at this moment moving from XP to Win7. There is no way they wil be moving to Windows 8 anytime soon! Even I as an experienced Windows user won't move to Windows 8 for at least a couple of years, it may very well be that I (and our customers) will skip Windows 8 and wait for the next version!

Skitch should be part of Evertnote in first place. I've wrote on these forums as suggestion to have tool to do exactly what Skitch (or OneNote) do.

+1 for Windows 7.

Work isn't moving to Windows 8 anytime soon (especially with the reviews we've been reading). I guess I'm stuck with Fast Stone Capture for awhile :(

I hope companies aren't going to rely on other people reviews, if they would actually go in and give it a real test they will see the benefits greatly outweigh the disadvantages.

Yes Windows 8 is different, but it is also ALOT faster in all respects. Users just need to try it for a few days to get used to the new way of working.

Anyway, I didn't come here to talk about Windows 8, I was just wondering how you make screenshots with the Metro version of skitch? Like you do on the Mac version... or is this something that is yet to come?

I know Window's 8 will be coming out in less than a month at this point but Win 7 is still the current Window's OS and not haveing Skitch on my system really makes me think about going back to MS OneNote :( not what I want to do

Yeah, I have no intention of upgrading to Windows 8...I hate to be left behind. A regular Windows app for the desktop will be compatible now and going forward. A "Metro" app is not backward compatible and excludes a large part of the user base. :(

+1 for windows 7 version.

I've been on windows 8 for a few months now and am actually going back to 7. A friend of mine is also about to switch back. I think windows 8 will be similar to Vista in that it will get traction through pre-installed systems - but many will choose to downgrade to windows 7 (as they did to xp from Vista). It doesn't make much sense to have the full metro UI and only use the 'Desktop' mode (which I was doing because most metro apps suck).

For those on WIndows 7, yo ucan activate the tablet functions even without tablet hardware. This gives you the MSFT snipping tool, which will do screen shots that you can annotate. Built into the OS of windows and works incredibly well.

I have no idea what this means. Are you saying just use the Win 7 snipping tool? Because that's nothing like Skitch.

Well I am new to this forum...but was determined to voice my support for the need to have a Win 7 version...as has been mentioned...Evernote is missing a huge proportion of users as a result.

Some of us "older" users, like the larger screen and keypads, ( even though we have an iPhone)....

Surely opting for the common denominator Win 7 or even XP is a better PR and makes sense over the Win 8 that most will steer clear of for some time...... Come On Guys....get your act together.....the year is almost over and we are all still waiting....frustrated and grumpy !!!

How about a update on progress????

We don't release timelines or roadmaps. Getting a product out on multiple platforms is quite a feat, especially since we rewrite it each time. That being said, we've read all your comments and thanks for posting.

Skitch on Windows 8 is fine. Unfortunately, Windows 8 on a non-touchscreen device (especially a desktop) is highly irritating. I've been using it on a few machines for about a month now, and my frustration levels have not decreased with time.

Most corporate users will not be able to move past Windows 7 for a long time after a stable (well it's windows so let's say somewhat stable) next version is released.

Sharing the following post with this thread: http://discussion.ev...ch-for-windows/

Skitch for Windows Beta is now available!

That must be a private beta or some sort. It says I don't have permission to view the destination page.

Sorry about that! We've opened it up publicly, there was a mix up about.
