Support for Microsoft's Digital Ink Format on Android, iOS and WIndows Mobile Devices


My company is researching a project that will allow our clients to capture autographs/signatures on a mobile device.  The functionality will need to work offline and on any of the major mobile operating systems.  These signatures will be stored in a MS SQL Server database and displayed in reports in our main system, which is written in PowerBuilder 12.5.  In my research I have found Microsoft's Digital Ink format that is natively supported by PowerBuilder's controls.  My question is are there signature capture libraries available for each of the major mobile platforms (Android, iOS, Windows Mobile) that can export signatures to the Digital Ink format?  I did some basic googling but didn't find anything.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

looks like Wacom is carrying some solution of Digital Ink e.g. Signature SDK for Android and iOS and you may be interested
Whether they are captured using the Signature SDK on Windows, iOS or Android the signatures can be treated in the same way in Wacom applications:
• SignatureScope provides forensic experts with tools to analyse signature data
• Dynamic Signature Verification (DSV) performs automated signature comparison and verification. Signatures captured on iOS can be verified with signatures captured on any of the Signature SDK platforms: Windows, iOS and Android
