    Signing PDF files on the go is often a task. Most of us usually take out our laptops, or frantically look for a computer. That is inconvenient for sure but in a world of advanced pocket computers that our smartphones are, there's always a workaround; especially if you are using an Android smartphone. Turns out that you can sign your documents professionally on any Android phone, provided you get the Adobe Acrobat app.

    We have tried this on Android and it works as expected. Here's how you can do it on the move.

    Sign PDF files on Android smartphone

    - You need to download the Adobe Acrobat Reader app from Google Play Store.

    - Next, you have to sign in with your Adobe account. For those new to Adobe ecosystem, they will need to create a new account. Spoiler alert, lots of advice involved in the process.

    - Once you are in, simply tap the “Files” icon at the bottom of the screen. You can access all your PDF files stored on your phone but you can also access them directly from Gmail, Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, and the likes.

    - Once you have chosen your file, it opens. Click on the “Edit” option.

    - You will see several options, out of which you need to choose “Fill & Sign”.

    - Next, you need to create you signature. Tap on the sign icon at bottom of the screen. You can either draw you own sign or just create digital initials.

    - If you choose to go for a custom sign, draw it in the box, or use the phone's camera to capture the sign digitally. Hit “done” when you are good to go.

    - Now, go back to your PDF document and tap the spot where you want to put your sign. An adjustable box will appear to allow adjusting the sign. Once done, tap on the “ok” button (it is a checkmark).

    - Next time, you only need to open the PDF document, click on Edit, and the Fill & Sign to get going.
