1:03 /

Although much of our world is now digital, sometimes a good, old-fashioned signature is required on certain documents. But it can be burdensome to print pages, sign, and then scan or mail them back. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on mobile apps that let you lay down your "John Hancock" through your smartphone.

Sign now as a free app for both Apple and Android phones. Besides the beauty of its price this (??) incredibly simple to use. After it's installed open a document from an e-mail, drop box or from a photo you have taken of it. Locate the area to sign and then tap a signature buttons. Sign it, tap okay and then place your signature in adjusted size. That's it. You can then e-mail the document or save it to your free sign out account. (Jot not?) signature is an Apple only app that cost 499. It's similar to sign now but has a little more functionality besides a signing forms you can fill them out from the same app and when you're finished you could e-mail, print, fax or share them with your drop box or Google (??) account and everything is password protected so no one else can get their hands on your (John Hancock?) whichever app you choose is say goodbye to the (??) and time consuming steps at printing, signing, faxing or mailing. In San Francisco I'm (Cara Seboi?) CNET.com for CBS news.
