On iOS, I regularly sign digital documents using a combination of Microsofts Word app, Smiles PDFpen 2, and a scanned image of my signature which I keep in Dropbox. SignEasy, however, has a new iOS 8 extension that promises to make the process of signing documents much easier.
You can download SignEasy on the App Store now, and its available free of charge for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Provided youre running iOS 8.0 or above, iOS device owners can take advantage of the new SignEasy extension, which reached the app following an update last week.
Once the latest version of SignEasy has been installed on your iOS device, users enable and begin calling onthe brand new extension from inside a huge range of compatible applications. The Mail app, Mailbox, Dropbox, OneDrive, Slack, and more are among the hundreds of iOS apps which support SignEasy. In order to sign your signature using the app, simply tap the iOS 8 extension and select Sign with SignEasy. Upon doing so, the app will drop your signature right into the file youre currently viewing its as simple as that.
SignEasy for iOS.
Users will need to sign up for a SignEasy account in order to use the application and its extension, though the option to log in with Google is made available (which will obviously speed up the sign in process). Unfortunately, a pro account will also be needed if users wishto sign more than three documents using the service; one of these will set you back $39.99 annually, though an attractive pay-as-you-go plan is available and starts at $4.99.
Besides supporting document signing using the aforementioned extension, SignEasy also allows users to mark checkboxes or other annotations using the app, to switch text styles or colors, or to insert images into a document. Furthermore, Pro Plan users also get Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, and OneDrive support for importing and saving documents, as well as a number of other benefits.
All in all, SignEasy is a simple to use service that could make your life a lot easier. Though given the apps pricey subscription costs, I think Ill be sticking withmy tried and tested PDFpen-based method.
