A new version of Evernote Skitch for Android is now available, aiming to make annotations easier than ever on an Android device.

The app received its last upgrade (version 2.0) back in October 2012. That update brought deeper integration with other apps and a handful of new features, delivering the "full Evernote treatment."

Compared to the upgrade back in October, version 2.0.5.63 (rolled out on Friday, Jan. 4) is more of a minor upgrade rather than a big overhaul. The changes are not drastic and nothing is radically different. Instead, the new version aims to improve the existing features to make everything easier and more reliable.

The new version of Evernote Skitch for Android sports some interface adjustments, as well as a better set of tools for annotating images. The Pen Tool, for instance, is now faster and more responsive, allowing for smoother strokes. Meanwhile, a Hold and Lock feature allows users to lock into the tool they are currently using.

According to Evernote, the Wet Ink setting should group strokes "much more quickly." Another notable change relates to the Move/Pan tool, which now allows users to return to the previous function once they delete, deselect, or swipe away from a selection. In other words, the tool can become active when selecting, de-selecting, or deleting a different object, or when swiping the screen. Overall, the app is now easier to use thanks to the addition of intelligent tool tips. Users can even adjust tool behavior from "Settings."

Evernote also added some improvements to content scaling, which means that annotations now fit with images better under the new setup. The update also throws in a home view icon, which should make it easier to access the app settings.

Even though the update doesn't bring any radical changes, those who use the app regularly may find the minor tweaks useful. The new version of Evernote Skitch for Android is now available for download from the Google Play store, and the company claims that this version is more stable. The app is free, and works with all devices running Android 2.0 or higher.
