Have you guys thought about the outcomes for ballot initiatives, or for enterprise sales?
In particular, this kind of tech might have a disruptive impact on the initiative process in California (which costs around $1M-10M in signature-gathering costs to bring something to the voters), and on the enterprise sales cycle (which involves exchange of PDFs between multiple parties, at a lower conversion rate than a streamlined web process).
(There's a good case much of the current budget mess and general non-accountability of elected officials is the result of constraints added by prior populist initiatives.)
1.) Any chance of OAuth support? Our users are in general not technical, and in any case they all appreciate one-click integrations over copy/paste API-key, or even worse, username/password ones.
2.) Can we retrieve a list of documents that have been signed (or sent to be signed) given an email address?
Also the FAQ has a very prominent "How does HelloSign work?", but doesn't seem to answer that question. (ie: "HelloSign lets you upload your signature and quickly apply it to documents", or whatever it actually is)
The ONE thing that I feel is missing is letting people use a purchased certificate from a trusted provider. We need that little extra "formality" before we use this for actual legal documents.

I believe the HelloSign API also covers most, if not all, of the same use cases.
NOTE: I am a HelloSign co-founder
I tried using HelloSign and HelloFax to take care of some contracts while travelling, but the messages sent look like spam (heavily branded, with almost no control over the content of the message), and the document is not sent as an attachment but requires the recipient to register and login to the service.
They're so focused on their viral coefficient that the service is miserable to use.
I dont mean to be so critical, but I exchanged a number of messages about this with their support line, and all I got back was bullshit answers, such as requiring a login gives "better security!" and so forth.
EDIT: The key word I'd use is that the messages are unprofessional. If you're trying to conduct serious business, it's not really suitable, because of their attempts at virality. When it comes to using an API, do you trust these guys to make customer-centric decisions or will you get stuck with something else?
We realize that the need for custom branding is great, and have plans to give our users control over of that, it just hasn't happened yet.
I would love have your API on Mashape! We have a lot of queries for signature APIs
