Adobe today announced a significant update to its Adobe Reader app for Android devices which includes the ability to sign documents from a mobile device.  The eSignature feature makes it a breeze to sign, comment, or annotate PDF documents with the swipe of a finger.  The technology behind the update is called Adobe EchoSign and it’s also included in the new Adobe Reader update for desktops as well.

Thanks to Adobe Reader for mobile, you can electronically sign a document by simply drawing your signature with your finger on a touchscreen, making it easy to conduct business while on the go.  Additionally, you can connect to Adobe EchoSign to get others to sign documents electronically, letting you track and manage the status of documents online. And, because the signed contracts are archived in the cloud, you can easily retrieve documents from anywhere, at any time, via a web browser.
