Alex B
I have been using this program for almost 2 years now and it is amazing! I have uploaded all of my work documents/forms so I no longer have to hand write every single thing. Not to mention I am saving money by not having to purchase any paper and more importantly I don't have to purchase any printer ink.

Easy to fill forms! This software is very easy to use, I'm able to fill forms we use over and over again. Adding signatures is simple and seamless. Switching between pages. I'm used to rolling down with my mouse. I also noticed a bit of delays, but it might be our network connection.
