The Story of Annotable
Annotable is the ultimate iOS annotation tool. For myself it replaces this folder of apps:
These are all good apps. But the features I use are scattered among them. I don’t want to think about which to open when I want to annotate something, or even worse to jump through several apps to achieve the final result. I want a single unified app with all these features plus some other features that are not available in any of them. That’s why I made Annotable.
The canvas design is similar to Skitch for my own habit and familiarity to others, with some extensions. Skitch is my most used annotation app before. I believe it is also the most popular annotation app. Its death is another incentive for me to build Annotable.
- Common tools: shapes, arrows, lines, and texts.
- 8 colors, 3 sizes, 3 border widths.
- Blur & 3 styles × 3 granularities of pixelations.
- 2 shapes of highlights.
- Loupes with 2 operation modes.
- Texts with arrows & text marking.
- Unlike Skitch or OneShot, all the results are HD images.
- Unlike Pinpoint or OneShot, not only screenshots but all images are supported.
- Unlike Annotate, large images can be directly annotated and do not have to be cropped.
