Sometimes mobile correspondence can be a nuisance. Things can become difficult when you are trying to express yourself via phone, text or email but simply cannot manage to convey your message without some type of visual demonstration. Unfortunately, not everything can be adequately translated into words.
Luckily, with CheckItOut by WireMuch.com, users can increase the chance of their message’s success instead of having the intent become something lost in translation. With CheckItOut, users can surf the web and markup any webpage or map, sending that image to the desired recipient so they can see exactly what the sender wanted them to notice. Along with the marked up image, recipients will also find the original URL so they may view the actual page as well. All markups may be made directly on the image, allowing users to perform tasks such as highlighting a specific route or location on a map, sending webpage alterations to your web designer, indicating noteworthy portions of a photo, or highlighting significant portions of text or errors.
To be able to draw directly on the given webpage, users must begin their web search within the application. There, CheckItOut provides three different page tabs that allow you to jump between tasks. The main page allows you to surf the web. The bar at the top lets you enter the URL of the page you are looking to use. If this is a page you use frequently, you may want to add it to your bookmarks by tapping the ‘+’ icon next to the search bar. The book icon to the far left, as in Safari, allows access to those pages you have already bookmarked.
When you have settled on a page and wish to begin drawing, move to the ‘Draw’ tab to begin marking up the image in any way you see fit. If you have been using the ‘Map’ tab, move to the ‘Draw’ tab as well in order to begin your markups. Using black, blue, white, yellow or red, you may write or doodle whatever you wish. Use the ‘Clear’ button in the upper left corner to erase your markings if necessary or simply shake your phone to clear your writing.
Once you have completed your markup of the webpage or map, you may share the image quickly and easily by using the arrow icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. You may copy it to your pasteboard, allowing you to use the image in other applications or add it to your photo library for later use. Users may also send the image via email, which also sends the website’s original URL as well so they may view a clean copy of the page. Images can also be posted to Facebook, though Twitter will only share the page’s original URL. CheckItOut truly allows users to share information and get their point across using every popular modern convenience.
CheckItOut requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
