Notarize app turns your iPhone into a convenient, licensed notary using live video

Notarize iOS App (Featured Image)

For anyone who knows the pain of having to look for a public notary, you may be interested in the new Notarize app that just hit the App Store today. Users can actually get documents legally notarized conveniently from the iPhone. Here’s how it works:

Thanks to a law passed in 2011 by the state of Virginia, certified Virginian notaries can complete remote notarization using live video calls. Notarize takes advantage of this and other related laws to create a seamless notarization process. Without having to search for or wait in lines for public notaries, users can quickly notarize documents from anywhere with an iPhone and an Internet connection.

Here’s how Notarize explains it:

Notarize is the first on-demand remote, electronic notary service valid in all 50 US states and the District of Columbia. In 2011, the Commonwealth of Virginia passed Senate Bill 827 and House Bill 2318, allowing appropriately certified Virginia notaries to complete remote notarization via live video call.

Furthermore, a document remotely notarized in Virginia is valid across state lines due to the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the United States Constitution and state laws that specifically address and accept out of state notarizations. Notarize leverages these and other laws to offer people and businesses the ability to legally notarize documents electronically, from anywhere.

Notarize simplifies the notarization process by allowing users to upload their own documents over email, cloud services like Dropbox, or any app that supports iOS document sharing. Each document notarization costs $25, and both public and private institutions will accept documents notarized out-of-state. Notarize even provides a contact email just in case they don’t.

Once the document has been uploaded, Notarize users prove their identity by taking a picture of a government issued photo ID. Then utilizing Confirm’s ID verification system, documents can be validated within seconds. After that, the users are connected over live video (similar to a FaceTime or Skype video call) to the notary agent where they are assisted the rest of the way.

Notarize is available for free in the App Store and is compatible with iPhones on iOS 8 and higher. Notary services through the application are available in all 50 states, and Notarize has set up a thorough FAQ as well.

Skype for iPad & iPhone updated with HD video calls, improved call quality

Skype-iPad-video-calls

Update: The iPhone version of Skype just received the same update with HD video calling support on iPhone 5.

Today Skype updated its iPad app with the ability to make HD quality video calls in addition to several other performance improvements. It’s a feature that’s been available on other platforms for quite sometime, including the Mac client, but today the higher quality video calls finally make their way to the latest iPad. Earlier this year Skype rolled out HD video calling to Windows Phone device’s and noted it would include “720P HD on higher-end devices.” We’d imagine that’s also the case with today’s iPad update but, as always, the quality of video will also depend on the quality and bandwidth of your internet connection.

The HD video calling feature is only available on iPad 4, and version 4.10 also brings enhancements to call quality and stability. It also includes “a redesigned country code picker on the dial pad.”

What’s New in Version 4.10

Call quality improvements
- Make HD quality video calls from your iPad 4.
- General improvements to call quality and stability.

General fixes and improvements
- A redesigned country code picker on the dial pad.

Confirmed: Airtime video chatting works in the air… on Gogo in-flight internet!

Confirmed Airtime video chatting works on Gogo inflight internet

"Whoa! Whoa! Are you on a spaceship? Seriously, are you on a spaceship?!"

Those words came flowing -- enthusiastically, I might add -- from an anonymous Airtimer just today, on the launch of Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning's Airtime project. "I'm actually on an airplane," I replied. "Where are you headed?," he responded. "LA!," as I tried to keep the conversation going. I failed to get to the part about continuing on to San Francisco, but it mattered not -- I just confirmed that Airtime does indeed work in airplanes. On a packed-to-capacity flight from Atlanta to Los Angeles, the onboard Gogo connection held up decently enough to have a relatively meaningful conversation (and eventually, for me to post this very article). The video feeds were a bit bumpy -- not completely unlike the ride itself -- but audio was fairly crisp. We shot the breeze for a minute or so before waving goodbye, two complete strangers brought together for the sake of discovering what's possible.

I never engaged in any late-night Chatroulette sessions, so the first-time Airtime experience was quite the surreal one -- particularly given that I was somewhere high over the New Mexican mountains. If I had to guess, I'd say it's just a matter of time before Airtime is funneled into that same black hole as Skype, making it impossible to complete a call whilst onboard; but for now, the tunnels are wide open. The friendly skies never felt so friendly.

Skype adds Facebook video calling to beta desktop clients [video]

Skype on Thursday announced that its Mac OS X and Windows beta clients now support video calls to Facebook users. Skype introduced a Facebook-to-Facebook video client for the social network in July, but now users on both platforms can video chat with one another. Users who choose to download Skype 5.7 Beta on Windows or Skype 5.4 Beta on Mac will be prompted to enter in their Facebook credentials. Once logged in, Facebook friends will be presented on the Skype buddy list and a video chats can easily be initiated. Skype also said it has added a group screen-sharing feature for its Skype Premium Windows users, an option that was released in an earlier Mac OS X update. A video of Skype’s Facebook calling integration follows after the break.

Tango video calling demoed on Mango-based HTC Titan (video)

Looks like Mango's got yet another trick up its sleeve -- at least, a trick that'll be noticeable on HTC's looming Titan. Windows Phone Director Aaron Woodman -- the same Aaron that stopped by our own Engadget Show a few months back -- recently paused to show off a Tango video calling application on the aforementioned handset. We knew good and well that the front-facing Titan camera would be put to use by something, and now you know. 'Course, the "demo" looks pretty well scripted -- don't expect an accurate representation of video quality over a crowded 3G network -- but it sure serves to make the wait that much harder. Have a peek yourself just after the break.

[Thanks, Stephen]
