I've never used Skitch, but have heard raves from so many people that I've been planning to take a look at it; based on the feedback in this thread, though, I made sure to snag the old version.
It's been too long that I saw such a degrade of functionality of updated apps for a very long time.
I'm not trying to be difficult; it's an honest question.
I'm back to using 1.X for now.
Evernote, you guys have a long way to go with Skitch before it's back to where it was.
PS: I do like the new design though, they made it "look" sexy, the problem is that it's all facade :(
Really? While I'm somewhat fond of Skitch, some of us find the UX rather confusing. The menu's were cluttered, and for the most part does not operate on common design patterns.
For example, nearly all image apps allow your to draw a box to crop. Skitch re-invents the wheel, and asks the user to learn their method: Dragging the inside border of the inner canvas. Yup.. actually had use Google to figure it out :/
I remember how Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, raved in a Stanford eCorner speech about how proud he was to have acquired Skitch and how the Skitch founders saw Evernote as the perfect partner to scale their product without interfering. Don't think they're as happy now. Great speech though: http://ecorner.stanford.edu/author/phil_libin
cudos to http://www.tuaw.com/2012/09/20/skitch-2-0-is-like-skitch-1-0... for pointing this out
"When you throw away code and start from scratch, you are throwing away all that knowledge. All those collected bug fixes. Years of programming work."
It doesn't support Dropbox and it's not quite as good on the whole as Skitch was, but it's the closest thing I've found (and it does video capture too).
