This really isn’t about signatures – it’s actually a test of the WordPress iOS app to write a post.
First impression is that it is a bit sluggish. Just writing this is painfully laggy on an iPad 1.

So signatures. There was once a time where a fellow employee that worked as a liaison to a partner in a different region. To add to his, what some would say, annoying nature – he had ~100kb image signature that took up most of the screen real estate of the outlook preview pane.
Truth be told, many people had them. But none were on the same scale as his.
He was a chonic one liner emailer that treated email as an instant messaging client.
And he would do this from a remote region over a low bandwidth connection.
Every “how’s X coming along?” or clarification on a previous comment would add 100kb. If you came late to the “conversation”, you would spend a great deal of time scrolling to read it. It was a mess.
The worst off we’re the QA testers. Unlike Devs they don’t have unlimited mailboxes, their boxes would fill up and be locked out of mail.

After that, the trend died down & most people switched to one liners. Mostly first names or “Thanks”

It is nice 🙂

But the truce is over. I just got an email with a dainty 660x80pixel signature image.
