I often receive a .pdf form by email which I must fill and sign before emailing it back to the sender.
As I cannot over-write on an email, I usually have to print the form, fill it and sign it, then fax it back.
I would prefer to avoid all these steps and use email to return the completed form. Can anyone kindly offer a simple solution?

It's not terribly elegant but it works well for me and is way better than printing, filling out and scanning and a lot less time consuming. And best of all it's free.

Many, many thanks, Doug. That's just what I was looking for.
It takes some time to work out how to use it, but I think I'll manage.

If you need to edit PDFs, there is also the powerful PDFPenPro, which unfortunately is definitely NOT free.
It also has an iOS version.

I open stuff with Pages, insert a jpeg file with my signature, and Print to PDF.
