New-look HelloSign App makes mobile signing even easier

We’re excited to announce that a new update is available for the HelloSign iPhone/iPad app. We’ve updated the interface to be more visually appealing and have also improved instructions should you have any trouble importing or signing a document

There’s also some changes that might not be as readily apparent. We’re now able to support even those trickier PDFs that may have caused you trouble in the past. We’ve also improved the resolution on the scanner to make your documents look great.

If you’re a Google Drive user, you’ll also be pleased to know that the app is now integrated with Google Drive, enabling you to pull any PDF file from your drive account.

We’re still working on making this app better every day, so send us feedback if there’s anything you’d like to see:

Introducing the HelloSign API: The hassle-free way to integrate eSignatures

If you’ve looked into eSignature APIs before you know that current solutions make it much harder than it needs to be. They push things on on you, like….

  • An expensive developer account.
  • An unnecessary “technology certification.”
  • A mandatory two-hour “integration call.”

Then after all that the damn thing doesn’t work as it’s supposed to.

We’ll let you in on a little secret. The people who created these eSignature APIs were MBAs who did it for check a box. They don’t care about a developer community, the proof is in the pudding and the product they deliver.

HelloSign is building the best eSignature API and we’re interested in doing it with you help. Our API is REST-based and lightweight. Our documentation is all online and available. So check it out, dig around a start building something today. What you’ll be working with is Rev. 1 of the API. We’re invested in making it the best eSignature API and will be adding in fax capabilities as well.

Check it out here:

We look forward to your feedback and API calls.

Introducing a more integrated HelloFax and HelloSign experience

Starting today, you’re going to notice some changes to your HelloFax and HelloSign experience. These changes should make it even easier to use our dual services while highlighting  their integration.

The Top Bar

It is now quick and easy to toggle between faxing and signing documents. As we continue to add services that enable you to go paperless, expect the top navigation to enable you to easily find the solution you’re looking for.

Sign and Send from HelloFax 

In order to ease the confusion between services, if you choose to sign and send a document from HelloFax you will be redirected to HelloSign. You many still sign faxes, but for documents only being emailed, we’ll direct you to HelloSign

Your Documents

All your documents from HelloFax and HelloSign are still stored in the document tab on both sites. Moreover, your login for both accounts will be the same.

We think these changes will make for a far more intuitive experience. If you have a second, let us know what you think!

HelloFax Launches HelloSign

You know HelloFax as the company that makes it easy to send and receive faxes online. As the next step in our quest for the paperless office, we’re launching HelloSign. HelloSign delivers an unlimited and free sign and send service to consumers and corporations everywhere.

Other signature services offer limited free signatures, but with HelloSign, signing documents is free – and unlimited – aligned with HelloSign’s philosophy that people own their own signatures, and should be able to electronically sign documents for free.

We have been promised the paperless office for more than 30 years, but the signature industry has stagnated with expensive and bloated options priced for the large enterprise.

HelloSign changes that with its easy-to-use solution that works equally well for both consumers and businesses and breaks the costly and time-wasting cycle of signing documents – print, sign, scan – with its free, unlimited and secure signatures on the web or with an iPhone and iPad app.

HelloSign’s features and tools are perfect for individual and businesses. The tools range from creating teams of workers, the ability to create and standardize forms for easier signing, plus read receipts and audit trails to ensure that you always know when documents have been signed, with the ability to track the full process. In business or personal life, knowing if and when documents and contracts have been signed is the backbone the economy.

HelloSign relieves the pain of the print, sign, scan process for documents and takes it online with a web-based service, or mobile with the iPad or iPhone app. By providing free sign and send, HelloSign launches to be the solution for the small business, the teams of any size, for anyone that needs to sign documents and contracts, immediately.

Also, we’re pleased to announce that for a limited time, HelloSign has also partnered with Box to provide 25 GB free storage for HelloSign customers. Box is a perfect back-up solution for all your documents, as well as other work and personal information.
