This is the second time Cris Pearson and Keith Lang have struck gold, selling their Comic Life software to Apple for it to be installed on its Mac computers. According to the SMH, Comic Life software has been described as “a really easy and fun way to make comics from your photos” and has been installed on roughly 3 million Macs. 

Although money was tight for the developers before striking gold with Apple, it seems they’ve managed to do it again by selling their Skitch software to the company that owns Evernote. Although the exact amount hasn’t been disclosed, Evernote’s Chief Executive Phil Libin believes the deal was “certainly in the millions.” 

Evernote is a popular application that captures “all of your thoughts, ideas and inspirations into a single place” and is compatible with Mac, PC and smartphones. The digital memory bank will be improved through Skitch software’s ability to “annotate, edit and share your photos and screenshots…fast.”

Evernote’s chief executive, Phil Libin intends on incorporating Skitch technology into smartphones.

“We think that there are hundreds of millions of people in the world that would love to use something like Skitch but in order to do that it needs to be on every single platform, not just on Mac.”
