How to Setup and Use Your iPad to Fill in ACORD Forms
To fill out ACORD forms on an iPad using our Forms Boss Web app, you will
need to purchase PDF Expert by Readdle.(As of now Adobe's pdf reader does
not function properly on the iPad device). You can find it in the
App Store. It's only $9.99
Open Safari on
your iPad and go to
http://www.formsbossweb.com and log in using your user name and
password. We are adding a new customer, so press the Add Customer button.
Then type in the customer's information.
We want to add a certificate to this customer so we
press the Add Form button and the Add Form box appears.
To find the certificate, we type 25 in the "Search characters"

The nonmatches will disappear. We see our form and tap it to highlight
it. Then we press the Open button.
The form will appear in the default iPad app. Tap the form somewhere and a menu
will appear at the top left to "Open in..." Tap the "Copy to PDF Expert" option.
The form will open in PDF Expert.
