How many times have you left your office only to realize a couple of miles down the road that you forgot to sign that motion? If you were sans a laptop, than your only options were to either turn around or do it tomorrow. Sign-N-Send puts this problem to rest.
Developed by Tipirneni Software LLC, this iOS app allows users to sign PDF and Microsoft Office documents on their iPhones or iPads.
But does it work as advertised?
Thankfully, it does. Editing documents, especially PDFs, was a feature sorely missed on Apple devices. Sign-N-Send not only makes it possible, but it also exceeds this basic functionality by integrating itself into your Apple device.
Users can open and sign files with the app using their fingers or a capacitive touch pen. Tipirneni Software also included zoom and panning capabilities. A great touch, as anyone who has drawn on an iPhone can attest to how hard detailed work can be on the device.
Once you're done editing, you can save the document and email it. Sign-N-Send will automatically create a signed version of the file.
Even better is that you can open the app from within other programs, such as Mail and Safari. Simply tap the document link and hold it down until an option window pops up allowing you to enter Sign-N-Send. The feature works seamlessly and eliminates what could've been a very clumsy design issue.
The only gripe users might have with the app is that it's not optimized for retina display. It's not that big of a deal, but considering this is a signing application, its omission is bewildering.
Sign-N-Send is available now in Apple's App Store for $4.99. But lawyers that don't mind having an ad included in their signed PDF and Office documents can download the free version.
