Here’s an update on my work lately. Just released an updated version of SignEasy on the play store. SignEasy is a mobile-only app that makes signing documents really a piece of cake. Import your document from dropbox, box, sd card, email and quickly sign them digitally with a smooth experience. I’m a user of the app as well and truly appreciate the simplicity with which you could sign the documents. There’s nothing complicated about it.
I started work on SignEasy only recently when Sunil (co-founder, SignEasy) approached me to improve their android version of the app. The app was in a decent shape, with the existing code not available in a great condition. The android version had a few performance issues too and the workflow was a little tedious. The major issue was that the signing process felt incomplete. There was no provision to sign the document on the client side. It was uploaded to the server to sign and return back the signed copy.
This was a slightly painful experience for the user. Since the user couldn’t immediately see where he signed in the document. It’d only be available after he finishes his editing and the document is returned from the server. We analyzed a few android pdf editing/rendering libraries and went with one with supported local editing and rendering ability. Integrated that quickly into our code and that was it. Now users can quickly see their signatures on the app, and don’t need to wait for server processing. We also changed a few finer things in the app and the results are available in the new update of the SignEasy app in the play store.
