    Default Whats the best way to sign a doc?

    Hey all I want to know what you guys are using to sign docs. Most apps want you to upload docs to their server but can you sign it right from the note to attach to an email clinet and send out thx

    Haven't tried but I think you can do it with Adobe Reader.

    Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I downloaded SIGNificant for this very reason.

    I've had good success with Sign Now. Easy to use, especially on a tablet but I have used it on my phone before as well. Simple to email after signing.

    Thanks, I just tried that, and it is very cool. I saved a test document from Word as a pdf, emailed it to myself, opened it on my phone in Adobe Reader, and there is a pretty easy and robust signature capability.

    First tap on the screen to show the row of icons at the top, then tap on the icon that combines a text balloon with a pen.

    Then tap on the icon that appears that looks like a fountain pen.

    Then tap on the screen where you want to insert your signature.

    A box opens up that says, "Sign Here." Write in your signature. Wait a moment and it will give you the option to "Clear" if you want to start over, or you can press "Save." After you save, it will then insert your signature into the document.

    Tap on the signature, and it then gives you the ability to scale and move your signature, as well as adjust the pen thickness, ink color, and opacity.

    If you want to add a second person's signature, follow the same steps, but after tapping where you want to insert your signature, choose "Edit Saved Signature" instead of "Add Signature."

    When you are all done, it's easy to share the document by whatever method you choose.

    Screenshot of two signatures, the first used twice with adjustments to thickness and color:

    I had earlier installed an app (can't remember which) to sign pdf's, but it was more complicated and added legends to the document allowing a recipient to verify the signature via the app's web page, etc., way more than I needed. Doing it in Adobe Reader is slick!

    I always use adobe to do it. It's simple enough with the stylus and your signature looks realistic enough.

    Thanks for verifying haha I was too lazy to do the test you did. Do you know what the "Send for Signature" button does?

    Not all versions of Adobe Reader are equal, and not all systems will print the signature.
