Would like an iOS app that would view/select .snagproj files

I found something similar to this from a year ago and it is closed for replies, so...

I often switch between my Mac, iPhone & iPad Pro during a day. When I have created a screenshot on an iOS device it is available to me on my Mac via iCloud. But when I've created a screenshot on my Mac in Snagit, I can access the folder where the. snagproj files are stored (and they all display with a Box app icon, which I haven't tried doing anything with), but I can't do anything with them.

For example, I often want to grab a Snagit screenshot and annotate it a little and attach it to an e-mail. The only way this is possible is if I remember to save it as a .png or other compatible file before leaving my Mac, which is never the case in my world. It usually comes up because I find I have a few free minutes while on one of my iOS devices and want to quick knock something off the To Do list that I was planning to do on my Mac.

If there is already a way to do what I've described, awesome—please tell me!! I will have to check out the Box app, too. Not sure why that is the default app icon for .snagproj files on iOS...?

Thank you in advance for your consideration of my idea!

Cool idea Debi! I find TechSmith's Fuse to be really frustrating since SnagIt is so awesome and Fuse is not helpful for anything other than transferring images. You may want to look at setting SnagIt to store it's Mac screen captures on a shared cloud service like DropBox where you can easily access it on iOS. You may also want to check out Evernote's Skitch which has basic screenshot annotation tools (its what Fuse should have been). You can then save it to DropBox and access it on your Mac easily, as well as import it back into SnagIt.

I have the same frustration Debi. I would be happy if I could simply open in Preview, tweak and attach to emails.
