GoodReader, the smart PDF management and annotation app for iOS, has received an update adding a smart, new feature. Now, users of the $4.99 application can add e-signatures to their PDF documents quickly, easily, and most importantly securely.
You see, the recently updated GoodReader, which is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, doesnt just add support for electronic signatures. It also promises to protect saved signatures using Apples own fingerprint scanner: Touch ID. Provided you have a compatible iOS device (that is, aniPhone 5s, 6, 6 Plus, aniPad mini 3, or aniPad Air 2), users can save a signature to GoodReader and use their fingerprint to add it to a PDF file.
Smart, right? Besides this, GoodReader 4.10.0 allows iOS device owners to create precomposed signatures for later use, it lets users quickly sign PDF documents with just three taps, and different signatures can be called on for different situations.
Moreover, your saved signatures are stored on a device in an encrypted form, never uploaded anywhere, and never backed up with a device backup. Plus, did we mention theyre protected by Touch ID? As such, GoodReader offers one of the most secure e-signature solutions weve seen to date.
To recap, heres a complete list of features added in the new update:
create precomposed signatures for later use on PDFs
quickly sign PDF documents with just three taps
use different signatures for different occasions
protect saved signatures with Touch ID
your precomposed signatures are stored on a device in an encrypted form, never uploaded anywhere and never backed up with a device backup
