Fill and Sign PDF Forms with Android

Fill and Sign any PDF form containing AcroFields. Save created document, view it, mail it, share it, etc. Application is free and it can be downloaded from Android Market here.

Select PDF forms by navigating in file browser or by clicking on 'Fill and Sign' context menu item (shows up after a long touch).

Signature capture capability depends on external Signature Capture library. You will be prompted for installation from the Android Market once when needed.

Request and vote for missing features on our support forum here: http://fillandsignpdfforms.uservoice.com/

For custom tailored business applications please contact support email at support+fasp@binarysolutions.biz.

Important notes:
  • check boxes are supported but most of PDF viewers on Android devices do not show them correctly. Selected check boxes are present in output PDF document which can be checked with Adobe Acrobat Reader on PCs.

Hello,
Very good App.
Is there a Batch mode? how to call this app from another app?

Binary Solutions said...

@Didoo: thanks for your comment. Currently there is no batch mode but we would like to hear more about your idea. Also, there is no way of calling our application from another one. Please add and upvote both of your ideas in our feedback forum available at:

http://fillandsignpdfforms.uservoice.com/

It would help us to prioritize things.

Michael Greco said...

As a company, what we wish to execute is the ability to create a form (PDF is fine), store the form on the smart phone and send them as a batch each evening without having to have the phone connected to the web until sending in the evening. This should provide date and time stamp as each form is completed. This would be used by a sales force to accept signatures for samples being left with physicians but the need for internet is only in the evening to transmit data. Can you provide such a program? We are happy to pay. The idea is to be able to give sales reps either a smartphone or ideally a tablet (less expensive) without the need to pay for phone service. Let me know what you come up with.

Binary Solutions said...

@Michael: yes, these things are already possible with our application. Permanent internet connection is not required. All files are stored in folder named Fill_and_Sign_PDF and can be shared any time you want. Document modification time stamp is stored in PDF properties as well.

Excellent app!
How do I clear all fields after using the form?
I save it with different name after filling the form but when I pull the original to fill with new data, the information from the previous time I used it is populated and I need to remove everything manually.

Any help will be appreciated.
Did I mention it is an excellent app?

THANKS

Binary Solutions said...

@Anonymous: currently it is not possible to clear all fields, but that's a feature scheduled for the next release. Check for update during the following week.

kurtisbain said...

Can you change the tab order. I have the tabs set up properly on the PDF but it all changed when loaded in Fill & Sign.

Great app otherwise. looking forward to a master clear.

Binary Solutions said...

@kurtisbain: please send your PDF file to support+fasp@binarysolutions.biz and we'll take a look.

Binary Solutions said...

@kurtisbain: clear option added. When you are filling your form, press 'Menu' hard button and then 'Clear all' menu item.

Fred said...

I use forms created by acrobat 9. The app works okay until save and then view the form. It is then that I see none of the data that input to the form.

Any suggestions?

Binary Solutions said...

@Fred: it could be that the fonts that you are using are not supported by our application or PDF reader installed on your Android device. Try to open the filled form on your PC. If data is not shown, email the original PDF Form to the support email address and we'll take a look.

Mike said...

I have a form for filling in fields that are calculated. I know the fields work, the form is functional in windows. But the form in this application does not calculate the fields automatically. Is there any plans to add this capability???

Binary Solutions said...

@Mike: eventually yes, but we do not have any time line. You could speed up the process if you add and upvote your feature request(s) here:

http://fillandsignpdfforms.uservoice.com/

Mike said...

Yep, way ahead of you....I did that about the same time as I posted the question here.

Thanks tho...

What is the term for the standard $99 license? Is it 1 year?

Binary Solutions said...

No, it is unlimited.

bader said...

Can you share the source code of the app? I'd like to extend it

Binary Solutions said...

@bader: application is not open source. If you would like to see some features implemented, add and up-vote them on our support forum here:

gina said...

I need detailed step by step instructions on how to get a customer to sign a waiver. I can get it filled out ok but am confused to the signing part. Thanks!

Binary Solutions said...

@gina: Your PDF form should contain signature field. When this field is present you will be shown a button that triggers our Signature Capture application. If the application is not installed on your device you will be asked to do so. After you capture a signature, press 'Menu' hard button and then 'Done' menu item. This brings you back to form filling. That would be it. In case you have any further questions, please contact support at the following mail address: support+fasp@binarysolutions.biz

daham33 said...

I keep receiving "form1[0].#subform[0]." above each text box before the label. How do I remove this?

Binary Solutions said...

@daham33: that's the name of your textbox. The best would be that you give it some meaningful name in your tool that you used for document creation.

Xandrax said...

Clear all function needs to reset combo box fields to their default value.

Binary Solutions said...

@Xandrax: this will be fixed in the next release (v2.1.2).

Is there a way to open pdf/forms without having to go into the file manager each time? Maybe like highly used forms shortcuts? Thanks

The option to open the pdf form from the file manager does not appear on my Asus Transformer tablet. Each time, I have to manually open fill and sign PDF and browse to the file from there. I have tried the stock file manager as well as various third party file managers. Any ideas?

Binary Solutions said...

@rabeatz: please contact support at support+fasp@binarysolutions.biz as we need more information about this.

Hello, in like the app and made some signing-tests but now it sais credits erschöpft, that sounds like the number of signs is limited.. is that true or what does this error mean?

Thank you!
Martin

Binary Solutions said...

@Martin: yes with Signature Capture library you are allowed to capture up to 5 signatures per week for free. If you need more than that, you should buy one of commercial licenses. Contact support+sc@binarysolutions.biz for further assistance.

I have downloaded this app on my Asus Transformer tablet TF101 and it wont let me save or sign documents because it says there is a password on the PDF...but when i do it on my laptop it works fine....and i ma using the same pdf which comes from another source...why is it doing this? help please! what do i need to change on my tablet for it to work on there too.

Binary Solutions said...

@Anonymous: Unfortunately, the current version does not support password protected files. This feature will be implemented in one of the future releases. Meanwhile you could ask the source to remove the password protection from the document. Sorry for not being able to help you more.

Az Gardener said...

I have a form my crew fills out when servicing a client. It contains a lot of inventory type items that we bill extra for they typically fill in a number on paper. The crew also initials tasks completed and may also make notes about the service. Are there any limits to the amount of columns that can be used in your format? Any plans for this to dovetail with quick books so we could manage inventory and generate invoices from this form?

Binary Solutions said...

@Az Gardener: No, there is no limit on number of columns used in PDF forms.

Regarding the integration with Quick Books, currently such thing is not planed. We might consider it if enough customers ask for that feature. So please add your request here:

I love it....life can never be smoother...thanx

@diaz liz: Thanks a lot.

Gretchen Ricker said...

I plan on using this program in my Real Estate business. Looks like it will work! Wish I could see the whole form but this WILL work for now. Support was helpful. 4 stars. 5 stars when I can see the whole document.

Anonymous said...

Is it possible to have required fields on these PDF forms? I have certain information that I NEED to have filled out. If not, is that an enhancement you can provide.

Binary Solutions said...

@Anonymous: it's not possible currently. Yes, we can provide that enhancement. Please contact us at support+fasp@binarysolutions.biz

Leslie ;-) said...

Hi! I love the app, but i have a problem... When I open a form created in Adobe Acrobat is shows the field names perfectly, but, if the form was created using Adobe LiveCycle Designer it shows "form1[0].#subform[0].Header[0].Date[0]" event though I've changed the field name to be "Date" any ideas of how this can be fixed? Thanks!!!!

Binary Solutions said...

@Leslie: we do not have direct experience with Adobe LiveCycle Designer, but there is a separate 'name' for the text that is displayed, and actual 'name' for the form field. You need to change the second one as well. In case the problem persists, contact us via support+fasp@binarysolutions.biz

Gordon Chung said...

Good software

Carolina Alvarez said...

Yes

App doesn't work when the name of a field contains an ä, ü or an ö. In german many words use these letters. Please correct.

Binary Solutions said...

@Anonymous: field names containing special letters do not conform to the PDF standards.

Josh Boulton said...

I have the Fill and Sign PDF Form app installed. I have the Signature Capture app installed. I created a form with input fields using OpenOffice and exported as a PDF. So, how do I enter a signature into one of the fields when I open the PDF using this app? Does it need to be a certain type of field? Instructions or a tutorial of some sort would be helpful.

Binary Solutions said...

@Josh Boulton: Yes, it is a special 'signature' acrofield. The application will pick it up and provide means for signature capturing.

RGilbert said...

On my form, when I display it on my Android Table, I get topmostSubform[0].Page1[0].[name of text field]on one of my forms. All of my other forms which were created in AdobeLiveCycle just display the name of the text field. How do I fix this?

Anonymous said...

is there a developer license option? Would like to incorporate this a with our CMS app but don't want to use the share options .. would like to upload to the completed form as an attachment within our customer record. Thanks

Binary Solutions said...

@RGilbert: Unfortunately we do not have any experience with Adobe LiveCycle but there should be an option to rename the form field.

I love this app, just works great with my photography release forms. I do have one question though, I noticed that it has an option to attach a photo. I've attached a photo when I filled out a test form, but at the time of rendering the new pdf the attachment does not show. Is there a reason to it? Am I not using it properly, or is it a bug on the app. I would like that feature of attaching a model photograph to the final pdf. I still recommend this app, it saves me from several steps if I do it from my android tablet, instead of windows based pc.

Binary Solutions said...

@Igmar Rodas: the photo is attached but it's not visible on your document. Please try to open your PDF in e.g. Adobe Reader on your PC. You will notice a paperclip icon alongside the document. Clicking on it gives you an option to open attached files.

Anonymous said...

Is there a way to input text that will show up on the form without having it as a field? i.e. a disclaimer paragraph.

Thanks,
