    Hi Don,

    I think you will need a pdf editor app like foxit reader or adobe reader for android and iOS in order to edit and submit the form. Most smartphones does not have built in pdf viewer/editor so you might need one.

    Regarding on the signature widget, it is not yet possible on the PDF creator but I have submitted this as a feature request so you will get updates once this is made possible.

    At the moment even most desktop PDF readers do not handle fillable PDF forms well, so unfortunately it may never be possible using it at mobile devices but we are searching on it.

    Meanwhile e-signature fields are put in PDF now (please note that not smooth signature just e-signature)


    Kindest regards.
