Shake App makes your agreements binding

Shake App 1

I’m a freelancer. If I don’t sign an agreement with someone, I am risking the possibility of losing any income I’ve earned. If I have a disagreement with a business over payment, and I don’t have anything in writing to prove the arrangement, I have nothing to support me if I end up having to go to court.

Shake App makes it possible to create a binding agreement for all kinds of arrangements. It doesn’t have to be complex and full of legalese to be legal…

This app was designed to make it easy for users to create and execute legal agreements for work, privacy, buying and selling goods, renting or borrowing, loaning money, and more. All you have to do is answer a few questions about your arrangement and a binding agreement will be created based on your answers. The contract will even include two signature lines, one for you and one for the other party involved. Simply sign on the “dotted line” using your iPhone, or send it through email to print out and sign. Once the contract is completed, an email will be sent to both people involved.

If you are hiring someone to repaint your house, have him or her sign off on what is expected. The app will ask your name or company name, what state you live in, who you are making the agreement with, what is expected for the job (including any milestones), the deadline for the work to be complete, how much the job will cost, and when the money is due by.

There are five pre-designed agreement categories including the ones mentioned above. Or, if none of the options fit your necessity, create your own. Draft a binding agreement with key terms for you and the other party involved to sign and save. Just make sure your agreement has the main points covered. For example, you could create an agreement that you and your roommate promise to wash your dishes every day or will have to pay $5 to whomever washes them instead.

Whenever you make some kind of arrangement with another person, it is a good idea to get it in writing, even if it is scribbled down on a napkin. This app makes it easy to document your agreements without having to make a photocopy of the paper bib you used at lunch.

Shake App is available for free. Download it in the App Store today and start making those “shake on it” deals official.

    expain to me how is it legally binding? who’ll take it serious?

      The fact that both parties have signed it makes it legally binding. It could be a postitnote for all they care, so long as it outlines the agreement and contains signatures of both parties, it can be used in a court of law.

        yea but i don’t think digital signatures can be used especially when it really easy with a computer to get a hold of or create a copy of a signature. i don’t think this app will last long.

        I’ve used digital signatures online a few times. I see what you mean, but they’re very much legally binding. It stated on the form I filled that whatever goes in that box is a direct representation of my signature and that I had to check some things to show that I understood etc. do a Google search for digital signatures, there’s a few services that do it.

        I actually had my lawyer recommend this app to me – I’m pretty sure if he says its legally binding, then it must me true. So far, I’ve only used it once.

    Anyone else having problem getting the above iTunes links to load up in the App Store on iOS 7? I tried searching for it also but can’t find it. I’m in the UK but the above links point to the US store, should that matter when I don’t usually have this problem?

    I sell and trade a lot of concert and art prints online. This is a godsend for people in my business!

    This is awesome and I love that each party gets a copy of the agreement via email.. The app would be perfect if there was the option to ADD A PHOTO to the buy/sell or rent agreement that way there’s no question on the agreement (PLEASE someone add the feature) otherwise this app is great!!
