    Android app for creating signature in Word doc

    Anyone know of a good, free(!) android app that let's you write two signatures on a Word doc?

    Most of the apps only work on PDF's. Found one that works on Word but only let's you sign once

    Im donald ducked if Im going to buy a printer \ scanner just to send two documents a year to friggin' agents!
    I couldn't give two fornicators! Yes, really!

    Why not sign a piece of paper, take a photo of it and then use that to insert into word documents?

      Cos a picture of your sig will lokk like, well, a picture? Not sure if agents will accept that. Plus, it could be lifted and used by someone else?

        Not sure how to break this to you, but any representation of your signature in a digital file will be a picture in some sense of the word, and can easily be lifted in every sense of the word "easily".

          ^WHS

          Been doing that for years - I think I've forgotten how to write now.
          I use PDFescape to insert the signature into PDF's and just copy and paste for Word.

            I've had agents asking me to 'sign' documents that way, and who have accepted a photo when my scanner wasn't working and I'd nothing else available. It always makes me chuckle; a bit like when they ask you to send a scan/photo of the front page of your passport (which of course just looks exactly like everyone else's passport) as 'proof' of your identity!

                I keep a signature jpeg and use PDF to Word, insert signature and then CutePDF back to PDF.

                  Yeah thanks all for the suggestions.

                  I found a good android app that let's you sign word docs or pdf's ( a lot only do pdf's) then allows you to mail the doc direct so its complete with a digital security certificate of sorts. So that was one problem solve. However, one document needed 2 signatures and a lot of these apps only cater for one.

                  Still, the agent said not to bother with a 2nd sig as they'll do it!

                  Not keen on the jpeg idea tbh (although have used it in the past) as I think that's a little too easy for someone to lift and open credit cards etc in your name! Just my opinion though.

                    I always thought it would be embedded if you used Cute PDF printer as it's a bitmap image, am I wrong??
