Autograph Library

So you got an application you need to capture actual signatures for? Release form, shipping delivery, that kind of thing? Well, here’s a licensable library to make that easy:

Ten One Design Autograph iOS Library

  • Simple integration with any UIView, or just call the built-in modal view.
  • Customizable stroke color and width, and signature size.
  • Advanced stroke smoothing for accurate signatures.
  • Velocity sensitive stroke width for biometric verification.
  • Customizable message. Show your customers what they’re signing for.
  • Three-finger swipe to undo/redo strokes.
  • Optional inclusion of date.
  • Optional unique security hash watermark for each signature (for tracking purposes).
  • Freely available demo version allows you to try it out before committing.

Handy if you need it, as we say. Check out the free Autograph app that makes your device into a signature capture pad to check it out, along with Mac and Windows helper apps to do something with those captured signatures.

Now, you thinking to yourself “Dude, I don’t sign my name with my finger”? Why no, no you don’t, and these Ten One people make a capacitive stylus “Pogo Sketch” for any device or the “Pogo Stylus” specifically for iPhone/iTouch to help you out with that. Or any other kind of drawing/writing etc.:

Drawing Applications: The Pogo Sketch is an interesting alternative to expensive graphics tablets, and a lot more portable. On a mobile device, the Pogo Stylus makes sketching a lot easier.

Taking Notes: TThere are some incredible note taking applications for the iPad and iPhone. They’re all great companions to the Pogo Sketch.

See our recommended iPhone/iPad applications here

Okay, we definitely have to check some of these note takers out. This stylus just might make the iPad actually better for our preferred scrawling style of note taking than paper, it looks like.

And to finish off on another note completely while we’re looking around their site … want an analog joystick for your iPad? Well look, they’ve got just the thing!

h/t: MacNN!

    I wonder if, or how, they do pressure detection. I guess it may be a matter of signal filtering with the accelerometers, since for every pressure there is going to be a slight push.

    There's a note on that somewhere that they do have a pressure sensitive library, but it uses an internal API call and is therefore currently unsubmittable. I don't believe the official products have any pressure sensitivity.
