If you’re a nerd about technology, like many of us are, then getting up in the morning to see a shiny new software update is “best day ever” material! In point of fact, some of our team members had trouble falling or staying asleep the night before. Why? Announcing the release of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14! The launch of Apple products took place earlier this week, and it was an exciting event to witness. However, today is a very exciting day since we are able to announce the availability of the revised Signeasy eSignature software for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14!
This new edition includes a large number of brand-new features, many of which affect the user interface in ways that have never been seen before (I’m looking at you, widgets!). Here is what you can look forward to seeing the next time you launch Signeasy on your iOS device, whether it be an iPhone or an iPad!
Access and sign your documents in lightning speed with App Clips.
It is common knowledge that one of the most notable advantages of using Signeasy is the rapidity with which one may sign documents and seek signatures, especially in comparison to the speed with which one can sign hard-copy material. We never in a million years imagined that we’d have the opportunity to design an even faster workflow using the ios14-app-clips-esignaturedocument, but Apple has opened the way for us to do so!
This feature introduces users to a relevant “clip” of a mobile app rather than prompting them to download the entire application. Think of it as a small taste sample that you get at an ice cream store. Instead of having to download the whole Signeasy software onto your mobile device in order to sign a document, you can now take advantage of a slick new feature that gives you access to just the section of the programme that enables you to do so. A nearby NFC tag, a scanned QR code, or a Smart App Banner in Safari are the three methods that can activate the clip.
Especially at this moment, the use case potential available here are enormous. Consider the number of documents that you would be able to sign in a contactless manner, all of which would be possible without the need to download a new app. Do you have clients coming into your office who need to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) or a COVID-19 waiver? Make an eSigning workflow more streamlined by creating a Signeasy App Clip. What about release forms for events or signatures required upon delivery of packages? Simply posting a QR code will cause an App Clip to appear.
Scribble is software that can convert handwriting into text.
Since the release of iOS 14, the Apple pencil has evolved into an even more effective instrument for use with iPad. Using the scribble function, you can now convert anything you write on the screen into text that is automatically typed using the function.
The iPad is used by a significant number of our users, including real estate agents, construction site managers, field sales and employees, and others, for the processing of papers and the collection of in-person signatures. In spite of the fact that in today’s world we type far more frequently than we write by hand, it may be possible to complete digital forms with an Apple pencil in a method that is both a lot more effective and more ergonomic.
This writing-to-text function is a terrific new method to complete forms and contracts within the Signeasy app. It combines the quickness of writing by hand with the improved readability of typed text, bringing the best of both worlds together into one convenient feature.
Your documents presented in a glanceable format using widgets
In iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, widgets are playing an increasingly important role, particularly as new additions to home screens for mobile devices like the iPad and iPhone.
The Signeasy widget functions as a window into your document processes, displaying all of your significant tasks and alarms in a single convenient spot. In other words, it gives you a bird’s eye view of your document workflows. Users can also “pin” documents that they use regularly to the widget in order to have quick and easy access to them.
Support for the cursor
In addition to the ability of Scribble to turn handwriting into text, we have also included support for the iPad’s mouse and touchpad. This improves the accuracy of the pointing and highlighting that may be done on-screen with the Magic Trackpad. This is a game-changing improvement that will help you improve your precision when filling out forms while you’re on the road and expedite the process of turning documents around more quickly.
Each year, we collaborate closely with Apple as they develop new features for iOS and iPadOS. We use Apple’s improvements as a springboard for our own innovation, and we do this by working closely with Apple. The arrival of iOS 14 and the plethora of new features that came along with it left the door wide open for significant enhancements to the capabilities of Signeasy’s electronic signature solution.
Additions such as App Clips and Widgets have made it possible for us to deliver on our promise to provide a seamless electronic signing experience for our users, an experience that continues to get better and better over time. This has allowed us to double down on our commitment to fulfil our promise.
