Grab that file you need for a quick signature.

It’s one of several Adobe apps that handle this function, but it’s the most straightforward if you want to be able to sign something quickly and not have to fiddle with too many account settings. 

You’re able to import a document from your downloads, or take a picture and use the app to fill out the boxes and add a signature. Then, scribble on the screen with your finger, or a stylus if you’re using a device like the Galaxy Note 5

Add in your John Hancock and be on your way.

The app is free, but to save the item to Adobe’s cloud storage you’ll need to register for an account.
