I work in the machine service industry and would like to use an Ipad to have customers sign a service report without printing it first. Is this possible and if so any ideas on how to do it? I could make to report a .pdf file or a word document if that helps.

    You could probably use any drawing App on the App Store. There's a free one called Adobe Ideas that will let you open a picture that is in your photo app and let you draw on it. You could even use a stylus to make signatures look more accurate. One popular is called the Pogo stick.

    Hope this helps.

    There are 2 apps that will allow this. iannotate pdf will allow you to sign a document. Zosh will allow you to actually fill out a pdf with text as well as add a signature. Although Zosh is an iphone app you can 2x it and make it work. They both have their pros and cons but they work. I'm in Real Estate and use these for contracts!!

    My doctor has a program that let's me sign on the dotted line. He also has to get someone to witness my signing and they sign too. I know there are times when a witness is not needed. Like when we sign for a ups package. But then again we don't know if the kind of service that ups uses It maybe a bonded service or something like that... It would be nice to know if signing a forum or a PDF by way the iPad makes the document legit. It is an electronic format that can be edited. I've seen judges not accepting copies of a signed documents because the signature can be falsified.

    I'd love to "build in" some functionality to my Pages documents. Like electronically signing contracts, approving pricing, etc. I don't really care about actually SIGNING with a pen, but finding a way to put in a check box and a way to type in initials or something.

    I want to take contracts into Pages on iPad and allow "approvals" or signatures.

    Also, then after electronically approving a contract, you could enter an email address into a form, then email a PDF to the address - on the fly.

    Any ideas?

    Ditto ... I'd thoroughly enjoy being able to use Pages with signature functionality as opposed to other applications. I follow the keep it simple philosophy and dislike downloading additional apps that serve few purposes.
    Please Apple ... please!
