Skitch

Price: Free

As we wrote last week, Aussie app Skitch was bought by Evernote. One of the latter's first moves has been to make the app available on the Android market.

The app lets users create and annotate pictures and photos, and sketch ideas. The Evernote deal has also brought improved Evernote integration to the app.
