Notarization Allows You to Notarize a Document Directly From Your Phone
iOS: From time to time, you need a notary, be it a will, mortgage, or some other contract. You can probably find a notary near you quite easily, but if you don’t feel like leaving your home, the Notarize app lets you do it from your phone.
The app connects you with a notary public 24/7 and is currently only available in the US. Although the app itself is free, you will need $ 25 to contact a notary to sign your document. Here’s how founder Pat Kinsel described the service on Product Hunt:
Notarization is the first on-demand remote electronic notarization service that allows anyone to notarize a document from their iPhone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It operates nationally and connects clients with Virginia licensed electronic notaries via real-time video calling. Just download the app, verify your identity, fill out your document and sign in front of the current agent to instantly notarize it. The whole transaction takes 3-4 minutes.
Considering that it usually only costs a couple of bucks to notarize something, you are definitely paying for the convenience. However, it’s a pretty nifty concept, and if you need one, you can check it out at the link below.
