I use the 810 tablets to collect proof of receipt signatures - bluetooth
barcode scanner to scan the package, script to prepare a form with date,
package data, signee's name and xournal to load the form and sign it.
The documents are rsync-ed to the server. It is a bit of a kludge, but it

I'd love to get an app that would allow me to see and interact with the
N810 screen from both the pad and another computer - that would be great
for signatures at the counter.
