Continuing today’s theme of awesome Android apps (how did that happen?), Skitch also has something to announce: it has reached 3 million downloads of Skitch for Android. Given its Android launch occurred just three and half months ago, the company says that’s equivalent of a new download every 1.5 seconds.

Skitch has also added a new feature to its Android app – image rotation. Well, that’s awesome, too.

Technically, the image rotation feature rolled out last week, but Skitch is making it publicly known today via blog post. This feature lets users rotate arrows, text and shapes by tapping the object, pressing with two fingers, then rotating. You can rotate multiple objects at once, by tapping them individually then doing the two-finger rotate.

The Skitch Android application was launched at the Evernote Trunk Conference, when CEO Phil Libin announced the company had acquired the popular Mac app, and was bringing it to mobile. Surprisingly, the Mac app arrived on Android first, but the company says that an iOS version is “coming soon.” Stay tuned.
