Even though, the world is now almost fully digital, there are some elements that have yet to catch up. For example, signing documents with your John Handcock is still quite traditional.
In many cases, a business contract or proposal will be emailed or faxed to you. The material must then be printed so that you can physically sign it, and send it back. Of course, it’s much easier to sign a contract if you already have a method to create a digital signature. Even so, most of the time a digital signature requires PC based software, which doesn’t actually help much if you’re on the go.
Glykka LLC is here to help with all of that, at least for serious Blackberry 10 owners. SignEasy for Blackberry 10 allows you to sign a document digitally using your Z10, from anywhere, anytime . Once a document has been signed, you can either print, fax, scan or email it back to the source.
I find SignEasy particularly appealing because I get annoyed when I have to wait until I’m back in my office or at my computer to sign documents. It’s lovely to be able to get basic tasks like this out of the way when you have the first opportunity, and sometimes that may be while you’re out somewhere or running an errand. Luckily, SignEasy makes the document signing process relatively painless.
When the app first opens you are given the opportunity to add your signature and your initials. Then, when you get a document that you actually need to sign, you can essentially place your signature where it’s required.
There’s only one serious problem with the app; it’s not a native Blackberry 10 app but is instead a simple Android port. That means that app doesn’t run quite as smoothly as it would if it were built for Blackberry. Hopefully this issue will be addressed later in a proper update. For now, the app works just as it should which is acceptable.
There is a free version and a paid version of SignEasy. The free version offers several tokens, which can be used to sign and download a select number of documents. After the tokens are gone, you’ll need to get the paid version of the app to continue using it. SignEasy is $19.99, so it’s not exactly the cheapest app out there.
Still, it’s hard to deny the incredible usefulness of such an app like SignEasy. There are surely quite a few professionals out there who could benefit from such an app.
Regardless, be sure to try out the free version of the app and let the rest of the community know what you think in the comments below.
