Important news regarding upcoming version of Signature Capture app

Due to enforced policies on Android devices version 11 and above, our app has to change it’s behavior. This might affect the way you were using it till now, so please read this post carefully.

The app is not allowed to save captured signatures directly to any public folder on your device. This includes both root folder named Signature_Capture and any output folder provided to the app, if you were using it as an external library.

All captured signatures will be saved to the folder that is visible only to our app. This folder will be located on your device’s internal drive, not on a swappable SD card.

All captured signatures will be exportable. The export destination has to be chosen by you. Our app is restricted in that sense and export can not be done automatically without your interaction.

If you decide to uninstall the app, all captured signatures will be deleted by the Android OS as well. For that reason, if you want to preserve them, use the export functionality before uninstalling.

If you were using the app as an external library, please check the updated integration instructions on our website.

If these enforced changes are not acceptable for you, please contact us via e-mail so that we can provide you with the app version that is compatible with the old behavior. Due to mentioned security policies, that app version can not be distributed via Google Play Store.

If you wish to update the app with the future release, all captured signatures, if any, will be imported from the public to the internal app folder. They will not be deleted from the public folder. If you decide to delete the public folder and existing signatures, you will have to do it yourself manually. Please note that document importing will not work if the old app version has been uninstalled and new one installed anew.

 

Release of the new app version is planed for the end of this month. If you are interested in testing it out beforehand, please contact us directly.

Important information about upcoming e-commerce platform update, February 7, 3:00-7:00 am UTC

FastSpring, our e-commerce provider will perform scheduled maintenance for an infrastructure upgrade that will require a brief interruption of services on their platform.

Date: Sunday, February 7, 2021

Start Time: 3:00 AM UTC
End Time: 7:00 AM UTC
Impact: During this maintenance window, buyers will not be able to complete a purchase of licenses for Signature Capture app and Fill and Sign PDF Forms app.

Signature Capture for Android v8.1.1 released

Earlier today we have released Signature Capture v8.1.1.

Comparing to v7.x releases, this version contains various layout improvements and license deactivation functionality. ACRA error reporting library has been removed, as well as Amazon payments.

Currently, purchase of new licenses is available exclusively through FastSpring, our e-commerce provider. The license price is now pegged to the euro instead to the US dollar. As well, we have switched from one-time payments to yearly subscriptions. Licenses that have been purchased previously will not expire, they are valid indefinitely.

As we have to comply with Google Play Store policies, our app distributed on Google Play Store in near future will contain Google Billing as the only method of payment. We will be switching to this form of payment on 30 September 2021, at latest. Once we switch, the license price for the app distributed on Google Play Store will be increased in order to cover for the Google fee (that is currently 30%). Please note that the same app will still be available for direct download from our website. The app obtained that way will not use Google Billing and it will remain with the same license price.
