23 Mobile Things: 6. Creating and Editing Docs

Because apparently one Sesame Street reference wasn't enough during 23 Mobile Things, we're on to Bert's favorite number you guys! Oh the joy!

So Bert, what does your favorite number hold for us? Looks like Thing 6 is dedicated to creating and editing docs on our mobile devices. Thing 6 offers 3 apps for our perusing: CloudOn, Quickoffice, and SignNow. I'm 2/3 on having tried these out, with SignNow being the odd man out. For that reason, I decided to start there.

SignNow is actually a pretty cool and practical concept. It's sole purpose is to give people an easy way to sign electronic documents. Nifty.

Here's how it works...

Step 1: Open Word or PDF Document into SignNow (you're given a whole bunch of options of how or from where you can load a document). It's super simple.

Step 2: Click where you need to sign and choose Insert Signature (you also have the option to insert text, today's date or a check mark).

Step 3: A new big screen pops up for you to sign with a finger or stylus. Something about the sensitivity of the program makes even your finger signature appear very "scriptish." You can see mine below:

Once your signature is added to the document, you can send it via email or "Open In" other apps. Not too shabby!

Well there you have it, folks. This is is ElizEducation, signing off!  (I'm sorry...I couldn't help myself)
