Mobile app of the day: DocuSign

I seem to do most of the administration my personal life requires digitally these days. I can't remember the last time I signed a paper document and sent it off in the post. I'm not the only one, of course, who avoids posting paper. But I know people who print documents that come to them in electronic form, then sign them, scan them and email them. What a faff and what a waste of paper and time. Me? I use a digital signature.

That's all well and good when I'm at the PC, but less convenient when I'm using my smartphone. Except, of course, that there's DocuSign. This app gives you the facility to sign a document on your Android handset, iPhone or Windows Phone device. It is clever enough to handle a wide range of document formats including PDF and Microsoft Office.

DocuSign is more than a smartphone app. It is a seriously sophisticated service that you can subscribe to in order to help with document management, and it is used by some high-end companies and literally millions of users. Check out for details of how the app can help you, and to see the details of subscription rates for individuals, professionals and business users.
