SnagIt for the iPad. The MAC version is great, but could be expanded for the iPad

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. What, specifically, would you want to do on the iPad? The details will really help us!
Thanks!

You can use dropbox to transfer screen captures from an Ipad (hold the Home button down at the same time as the on-off switch) - import the image into the SnagIt Editor and add your embellishments.

I just would like it to work the same way as on my pc. For "on the move" work it would be incredible. I wouldn't need to go home and spend hours fitting all in. Photography journalism will open another door to simplicity

I would use it very much like on the desktop although i doubt you would be able to provide region or video capture (both would be very nice to have).  

I would take a screen capture and then crop to include what I need, then add text, arrows, highlight, etc. as I do on the desktop.

Use Snagit on the iPad. Capture images, manipulate images. The same functionality of Snagit for the Mac, but on an iPad

Seems to me to be fairly straightforward. Many tasks performed within the context of a Mac/PC translate almost verbatim to an iPad context. For example, creating help documentation for an application you are developing for the iPad. iPad makes it easy to take a screen shot (Home + Power button). iOS, I'm guessing, would prohibit an application from trapping that sequence but opening up the screenshot from the photo library should be fairly simple (like almost all photo editing apps do in their workflows).

I'm really surprised this hasn't been developed by TechSmith. Again, a no brainer.

I would for sure get it if there was an Ipad version of Snagit. I can't live without it on my PC and miss it all the time when on my iPad.

Features like screen capture profiles such as region, window, full screen and then the ability to edit the captured image in SnagiT editor are a must ;-)

Thanks for the great work

Being able to capture regions to the clipboard for pasting into other applications (pages, numbers, etc) would be awesome.

Specifically, I'd like the web page capture mode - where you could take a screenshot - not just of the screen itself, but of an entire full-length webpage.

Also the ability to highlight a specific area of the screen. I'm thinking this could happen by:
- Drag around area
- Click on specific page elements (DIVs, images, etc)

And of course, the ability to take those screenshots and share them however I want - email, facebook, etc. It would be cool to offer Dropbox and other cloud type integration as well.

Personally, I never edit images in Snagit - only grab things and send them over to Photoshop. As an experience designer, I create web pages and applications on all sorts of platforms. The iPad is the latest out there - and it's very unwieldy to get screenshots of long documents right now.

We are happy WIN desktop users. Things we would want to do are: line drawing/shape drawing, labels (including boxes), callouts/stamps (we like the stars), integration with Dropbox (if possible) or else ability to email completed pix. Finally, it would be nice to have file save options (Snag-it file, jpg, png, and so forth).

I've used snagit for 20 years I believe... at least for a long long time and not having it on my iPad makes me feel that I left my best tool on the work bench instead of having it with me.

I agree completely, I purchased SnagIt for my both my Windows and Mac based systems and feel lost without it for my iPad 2. PLEASE consider this an open market and help us all out TechSmith!

Totally agree. Don't pass up a chance to make a few bucks and expand the SnagIt universe. I am lost on an Ipad2 without it

I whole-heartedly agree. I have SnagIt on both my lap tops and sons desktop, but not on iPad... yet.... I have tried Numerous apps that say they have SOME OF THE SAME ABILITIES I'm looking for, but NOT all of them. I'd like the last version I bought - believe it was 10? Ideally I want the same program I have on all my other device to now be available for use on my iPad2 :) And happy to pay full price for it if it's as in depth as 9 & 10 versions were. Thanks! :). jcofortco@gmail.com

Hi,

There is no App in the App Store that even comes close to SnagIt functionality. Search App Store under "screen shots" and you get 4 Apps!

I'm addicted to SnagIt! It would add to the iPad experience

there are about 2000 people a month searching for iPhone screen recorder. The only app available to do this is a Cydia jail breaking app.

There is definitely potential for such an application. I am posting this because I wanted to record and show people how to blog from an iPhone using the iBlogger app.

As a web design and development company, we are constantly having to set up new email addresses for clients and it would save me money if i could video email set up on the iPhone

I also use the Keynote iPad to "pitch" and present to people. I have created some great templates. Again show people how to create and present on the iPad.

My kids have the iTouch and they are constantly googling how to get through different levels on games they play. You just need to go onto Youtube and search for how to videos on nintendo games etc

If anyone can develop this app, Techsmith can :)

iPhone screen recorder.

Totally agree that Techsmith is the leader in this kind of application and I trust them. I want them to build APPS we can use for our workflow.

I am a 'frequent user' from the SnagIt for PC and find it very useful whenever I need to highlight a specific region of a document or picture. The features of spotlightning areas or to cut a region and then frame it is really useful in my daily work. Aso the option of inserting comments on a capture has proven to be very useful too (f.e. when sending text corrections).
I simply wish I could do exactly the same with my iPad2, where the above fratures should be a must.

I don't want Snagit for the iPad or iPhone, I can just hit the menu button & power button to capture the screen.

No, I want screen recording capabilities like Camtasia. Wondering why my post got moved into this thread.

Hello Fraser, Sorry your post got merged incorrectly. I'm afraid we can't "un-merge" something once the action is taken. The best I could do was paste it back as a reply here: http://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmi...
It's not graceful, but at least all the right TechSmith employees will see it. Sorry about that!

Hi Fraser,
Once you capture the screen, how do you paste it somewhere else? e.g. Keynote

Having been a pc SnagIt user for some time, I am lost not being able to do screen captures and drawing tools/annotation that I am used to. Nothing in the market seems to fill the bill.

Thanks TechSmith. Already loaded AND used!

Finally a software company that listens to its customers wants and provides it. Not one that just gives (sells) what THEY want us to have.

This is probably overkill for those of you just wanting to do a simple still image capture on your iPad, but in another thread we've had a discussion about how to capture video from your tablet. I made a short video and posted it on our blog, detailing how to go about doing this. Again, maybe overkill for simple image captures, but it will indeed work just like video does with Camtasia Studio and/or Jing (just use Snagit to capture a still image, instead of a video).

Ah yes, BUT does not work for iPad 1...only for 2. I am an early adopter and have iPad and will wait now for iPad 3 before moving on.

All of you echo my thoughts on this topic. I too would like SnagIt for the iPad to seamlessly connect to both DropBox AND Evernote. That combination would be unbeatable!

Cherstinane, at this time we do not publish a Snagit app for mobile devices. We certainly love to hear from customers who are interested in having it available!

Have you tried any other image editing apps for iPad? We would be interested to know what you like or don't like about them if you have, and any suggestions for what features would be useful to you.

Apple is working on its next big version of iOS, v5, and they have announced that some image editing tools will be built-in, and again- once that is out we are interested to know what gaps or additional functionality a Snagit app would take care of for you.

We do have an app called Screenchomp for iPad, you can find that on the App Store and try it out, and certainly send us feedback about how you like it.

I used iScreenshots. It does not do anything more than the home+power button on the iPhone. I am trying ScreenChimp. The annotation tools are nice but not quite as professional as SnagIt. But I like it.
