Evernote is not making any changes to Skitch for Mac. It will continue to be available and supported.
Why is Evernote discontinuing support for Skitch apps?
We realize fans of Skitch may be disappointed and want to let you know that we don’t make these decisions lightly. In keeping with our promise to focus on the core Evernote experience, we are moving away from supporting multiple standalone apps. Before ending support for Skitch, we incorporated the most used features, including markup and image editing, into Evernote.
