Signing documents can be a real pain. Most of the time they require more than just a swipe of the pen. Documents usually need printed, scanned and faxed as well. What if there was an app that could do it all for you? Well, there is. DocuSign Ink is a universal app that makes the process a lot easier and the best part is that it’s completely free.

DocuSign Ink has a smooth and clean interface that makes it a breeze to sign documents. Before users can get started, they must either create an account or log in through Facebook. I opted to create an account because I’m not a big fan of linking my Facebook account to everything. The process only took a couple of minutes.

Once inside the app, users can go ahead and add their signature and initials either with their finger or a stylus. There’s different ink pen widths and colors to select. After a signature is added, it’s possible to add a profile picture to create an ID Card which helps make documents more secure.

The documents section within the app includes a demo document so users can try it out first. When the document is in full view, users simply drag and drop the signature, initial, date and other items directly onto the document. It’s really that easy. When users are ready to try it out for themselves, they can import a document or take a picture of one with their iOS camera.

What makes DocuSign Ink stand out from other apps similar to it is that documents are secured and protected from being copied, documents can be stored on cloud services like Box, Dropbox and Google Drive and the app converts PDF fields so users can fill them out with ease.

The downside is that the app only stores one signature. If a document requires more than one signature, a single envelope is required. Envelopes let users get someone else’s signature on any document whether they are present or through email. One envelope is good for unlimited signatures on one document, and the app comes with five envelopes. Once five are used, more can be bought with in-app purchases. A single envelope is $0.99, a pack of five is $4.95 and a pack of ten is $9.90.

DocuSign Ink is safe and secure so don’t worry about signatures getting stolen or copied. It’s packed with many great features, the interface is intuitive and the recent update added even more great content to the app. What’s not to love about it?
