1. Adobe Scan and CamScanner
The cell phone can help with the step of scanning your signature before you start signing documents. Adobe Scan and CamScanner are two of the best applications for Android and iPhone (iOS) that use the phone's camera to scan a paper with your handwritten signature and generate an optimized image. Download one of the apps, point your phone at the signed paper and, as long as you have good lighting in the room, the result will be a faithful reproduction of your signature. Then just send that file to your computer for use in documents.
