We’ll file this one under “why didn’t I think of that” — EasySign is an iOS app that allows you to import, edit, sign and send documents right on your device, without the need for a printer, scanner or fax. The app was released earlier this year, but today the developers announced an iPad native version.
Using EasySign is ridiculously simply — you sign up, and instantly get three free document credits. Your signature can be drawn on your screen or imported using the camera in your device.
Once your personal information is submitted, you can email documents to the EasySign service, and they’ll instantly be available in the app. EasySign supports PDF, Word, Excel, Powerpoint and even HTML and image file formats. In my own test, I was able to open a document, sign it, add some personal information (name and date) and send it, all in under 30 seconds. Considering simple tasks like this often take 30 minutes on the road, it is very easy to justify the minimal investment.
Best of all, document credits can be purchased directly inside the app, and use the in-app billing system. Document signing bundles start at $0.99 for 3, or just $14.99 for unlimited documents. If you know in advance that you’ll be signing a lot of stuff, it’ll make sense to immediately go for the $14.99 option. The app itself is free (along with your first three documents) and can be found on your iOS device or through this iTunes link.
