Import ssh key
I found by copy and paste I can not import my existing key generated by openssh as format not same. Even I modify the format to be same I still get error of unable to extract public key. Why not add a feature of import key? For example, in email app, when click on ppk attachment, it can be opened by serverauditor and when opened it automatically read the key info from file.

It is terrible, terrible advice to suggest sending a private key to Dropbox or over email. This is a fundamental security principle.
Import via QR could be cool :)
Isn't there a direct way to upload a key ?
Why would I want to put it on Dropbox etc ?
Thanks for the feedback and all these features are already implemented.
1. You may upload you key into Dropbox or Mail app or whatever and then open it with Serverauditor. A key file extension should be txt, text, key or ppk.
2. You can import keys via iTunes file sharing and here the simple guide how to do this:

To me importing ssh keys is a great feature. I don't want to have my private key travel through unsecured channels therefor a straight import would be best. I think it does not need to be complex. A file transfer from itunes to the app would sufficient.
