I use snagit for Mac and PC. I searched for an iPad version this weekend. I needed to purchase 2 iPad apps to do what I typically do with Snagit (crop & annotate/highlight). I would purchase Snagit for iPad

There is a Mac App now called “Skitch” that seems to work like Snagit, and they say they will have an IOS version soon. Snagit should hurry or Skitch will get the iPad business. I agree with the other comments, I’m using my iPad more and more instead of my notebook computer, and Snagit would be very helpful to me in capturing and annotating different materials to send out by email.

Not a chance Skitch broke their app with an update that took all the goodness out

I'll not reiterate what was already said but I also was looking for an iPad version of Snagit. Hope it comes soon.

Ditto what's been said above. I trust Snag it / Tech Smith and would use for work and home. I use the editor as well as screen capture. An example for home use would be to document a garden - labeling plants with link to online KB or document on my iPad. There are multiple apps out there that could be used together to achieve part of what snag it does, but nothing that is single snag it solution.

I agree. Would really like to have a simple version of Snag It for iPad2. I need to capture portions of the overall screen and to have the option to save either to clipboard or to a graphics file like .jpg at a user-selected percent, just like in one of the early versions of Snag It for Windows. Are you working on providing something like this?

After reading all these posts about wanting a snagit app I am confused why they have not created one yet?????? If anyone from TechSmith is reading these posts clearly there is enough people requesting this. How many more requests do you really need

Hi Techsmith - I've used Snagit for over 15 years in one form or another - and have paid full price, out of pocket if necessary if my current employer would not reimburse - it's that important of a tool. On the iPad I would like to see the following:
1. Screen portion capture - not the whole page, just part of it. This can save lots of time instead of capturing the whole page and then going into an image editing app too trim it down to size.
2. Capture menus, etc. I'm a UX designer, so being able to capture the "nuts and bolts" of an interaction is important for documentation.
3. Save the file to virtual location - make it easy to get the images off the iPad and to a sharable space - I'd personally love a dropbox integration. Snag on the ipad and they are on a shared folder on any of the machines I use.

The other stuff, for me, can come later (timed capture, set starting point, scrolling capture, etc.). I'll buy each upgrade :)

Camtasia would be amazing to have - especially as I'm moving into mobile UX design and usability testing - this is a HUGE market, and everyone I know is already relying heavily on Camtasia to track user experience on PCs. If you could tie in the built-in camera to track audio and user facial expressions? Wow!

Is there a date when snag it will be available for iPad. I would like same version as mac has. I wouldn't mind paying for additional licence. It just seams on the hand considering iPad is now introduced to offices, hospitals etc..
It would make my life easier rather than dragging laptop

YES! I use Snagit now as an upgrade from Jing Pro. If I could record screen cap videos on my iPad, I would use Snagit 2-3 times every day!
thanks!

Are you going to make Snagit available for Ipad (or tablets)? What about video capture (either Snagit or Camtasia) for Ipad/tablet - as computing seems to be migrating/evolving there. Due to limited storage space need to save the videos to cloud (your selected location - either a portal/dropbox/skydrive/or USB wireless (local). Please allow for using fingers or stylus as a "mouse" type device. - But would love to take my Snagit/Camtasia to my IPAD!

i'm a software tester and we use snag-it almost all day long for screen captures, training documentation, etc, we have recently added IPADs and IPHONES so I am dying without my snag-it. Any news on possibly when it might be available?

I have just purchased the iPad 3 and saw the YouTube video on how to capture screen video from iPad to pc recording through camtasia studio which I have, so I bought the hdmi conversion kit and am ready to test it out. I will let you all know how it turns out. Please stay tuned on my YouTube page (newdreamscreations). I really do wish there was a version of snagit for iPad 3 so I wouldn't have to go through this extra step though.

I have been a solid Techsmith customer for several years now, and I think you should add the avidly growing mobile group to your customer base.

I haven't read all prior posts on this topic, but you all should know that screen capture on an iPad is already available! Details below. Not to steal Techsmith's thunder, but Adobe already has a fabulous app that does editing of screen captures called Adobe Photoshop Touch. The only gotcha is that you need a minimum of an iPad 2.

DETAILED TECHNIQUE copied here by Googling:
Press and hold the home button (round button on front), quickly press/release the sleep button (at the top), now release the home button. The screen should flash.

@enrique - Not the same feature set or workflows that SnagIt users would be looking for.

I'm not going to read the entries above, so this may be repetitive. Right now I use 3 different programs to capture, crop & comment on images, and I would love to use Snagit to roll all of those into one program.

Screen capture: power button & home buttons
Crop: Photo toaster
Comment: PhotoPen

The comment part is the most problematic for me, as I annotate photos frequently.

Martha: Try Skitch, you can crop and annotate. You can also crop right within the native photos app on the iPad now. Doodle Buddy is another one with more options. But I agree, Snagit would be the best. The two I mentioned are either too simple or too complex. And why learn yet another one when we know and love Snagit!

The new Evernote version of Skitch is an unintuitive mess. Really wish TechSmith could get an iPad version rolling soon. Sign me up for beta!!

Is there a mobile version of SnagIt for iPad and for android smartphone?
I have two favourite 'minor' computer applications, one of which is SnagIt. I use it every day as a university teacher, in communication with students, in making teaching materials, and in administration. And I'm constantly reaching for it when on my tablet and my Samsung Galaxy....waaaaaaahhh

what I like about snagit are two things:

1 pixel perfection in capturing. I tried different capture programs for Mac and none gives me the kind of result that gives me snagit

2. the ability to capture any web site with vertical scroll on an iPad would be great to have this kind of images.

Those would be my suggestions for snagit application for ipad.

I'm a web designer and I spend much of my time to take screenshots with snagit for mac.
