When you are at home or in the office, it is relatively simple to sign and return a document that was received electronically. It can be printed out, the printed copy can be signed, and then the signed copy can be scanned, converted into the desired format and emailed back to the sender.
Sometimes, however, documents require immediate attention — even when you are away from your home or office. So what should you do when you only have your smartphone and there is a time-sensitive document that requires your signature?
During a recent trip, I was forced to find out the answer to this question for myself.
When all you have at your disposal is your smartphone, suddenly needing to sign a document can be an unexpected puzzle, and it can be stressful on those occasions when time is of the essence and you are trying to figure out a solution on the fly. Fortunately, there is a simple solution available, even when your toolkit is limited to your Android or iPhone. All you really need is Adobe Acrobat Reader for Android, which is available free on Google Play, or the iOS version which is free from iTunes.
