Evernote acquired Skitch in mid-August and re-launched it as a free download on the Mac App Store. Yesterday, the company made good on its promise to release an iOS version of the program. Skitch for iPad is here, allowing users to take notes, annotate, edit screenshots and more on the 9.7-inch Apple tablet.

The app lets users annotate and draw anything, just by using their fingers. It works with photos, web pages, screenshots, maps, or users can start a new blank canvas. Projects can be shared on Twitter, sent through email, saved to Evernote and beamed wirelessly onto Apple TV with AirPlay.

The drawing tools include your finger, pencil, arrows, text, shapes, crop, color and thickness and more. Evernote also noted in a blog post that Skitch for iPhone is in the works. Skitch for iPad is a free download from the App Store. Full release notes and nice screen shots are below.

Express yourself with fewer words, emails and meetings with Skitch for iPad. Use shapes, arrows, sketches and text annotation to get your point across fast. Mark up photos, screenshots, maps, and webpages then share them with anyone you like.

Skitch lets you: – Annotate: Add arrows, shapes and text to existing images – Create: Draw something new – Edit: Reposition, recolor and remove your annotations at will – Share: Send your sketches and annotations over Twitter, Facebook and email – Present: Show your work in real time via AirPlay on Apple TV – Remember: Save everything to Evernote for later
