Hints & Tips

  • Generally, signature pads are not supported with Apricot.

  • Generally, some pens/tablets might work with Apricot but it must be able to act like a mouse. For example, if you can't double click an icon on the desktop with it, you can't use it with Apricot. Even so, this is not a guarantee that it will work with Apricot. Please test it before you buy. We are unable to to suggest any brand or device for use. Purchase at your own risk.

  • There is a 50 character limit for the name text box.
