Adobe Reader Update Makes Signing PDF Files a Snap

Posted by Carter Dotson on April 11th, 2012

PDFs are often scanned in from paper, being forms designed to be signed with a pen. However, because of the digital format, this makes actually applying a signature to PDFs a challenge, especially from desktop computers. Well, Adobe is now making it possible for iOS devices, especially the iPad, to get around this problem with the new update to Adobe Reader. The new ink signature tool makes it simple to sign usng a finger or stylus. After a signature is added, it's then possible to easily add it on other forms with a single tap. By tapping and holding, the signature can be moved and scaled. As well, the thickness can be modified, the color changed, and opacity altered.

As well, it's now easy to use Adobe EchoSign to get other people to sign documents. As well, it makes it possible to be notified when a signature is applied. This makes it easier than ever to handle document signatures thanks to the iPad. The free update is available now.

Adobe Releases Free Official "Adobe Reader" App

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Adobe has released their latest app for iOS, bringing one of their most used services to Apple in an official capacity for the first time. That's right, Adobe Reader is now available as a free universal app. Those guessing Flash, we're sorry, but that is probably never happening. Still. Adobe Reader allows for PDF files to be opened and displayed from this app.

The advantage that Adobe Reader provides over other PDF reading solutions, which range from apps like GoodReader to even just Apple's built-in PDF support in Mail and iBooks, comes from DRM support. The app supports files encoded with Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management, as well as PDFs encrypted up to AES256, which Adobe claims is "the highest grade of PDF encryption." As well, it's possible to search PDF text and copy text to the clipboard, print PDFs with AirPrint, share PDF files with other applications, and mail PDF files as attachments.

Chillingo and Plain Vanilla to Launch New Children's App, The Moogies

Posted by Carter Dotson on October 19th, 2011

Chillingo has announced that they are partnering with Icelandic developer Plain Vanilla to publish a new children's game for iOS. Entitled The Moogies, this app is intended to be a sort of interactive toy. Children can interact with the various characters and their environments, seeing how each item reacts to the child's touch. As well, the Moogies react to voice input, so kids get to explore this world on iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch in whatever way they want. The app will be a premium one, with no advertisements, in-app purchases, or external links.

Joe Wee, Co-General Manager of Chillingo says “As more parents adapt to using iOS devices for educational and entertainment purposes, debuting a new children franchise on this innovative platform makes a lot of sense. The Moogies is a fantastic example of how creative apps can transform a child’s learning experience.” The Moogies will be adorabling themselves on the App Store in November as a universal app. Until then, check out this announcement trailer for the app showing what it's all about.
