Looking for a user friendly way to let people sign up for an email newsletter at a live event. Other than forcing them to enter their emails right into the right website, how can I simplify the current process of a person writing their email down, and a different person writing it into a spread sheet, and then someone else uploading the emails into the newsletter system? Is there an iPad app for this?

Equipment: Ipad or laptop. Almost never wifi
Users: people stopping by a booth, often not very tech savvy. They only will spare a second to write down their emails, and if it's not easy for them to access they'll just skip it. Shoving a laptop in their faces can seem either sketchy or arduous.
Numbers: anywhere from tens to hundreds of signatures at each event.
Ideally they would step up, sign the tablet like it was a piece of paper, and the app would put it in a spread sheet and the screen would reset.
OK, if that's impossible, is there an app that will show a simple, single input line that they can type into it and it will pop into a spreadsheet? Or a program on a laptop that will at least LOOK more friendly than HEY HERE USE EXCEL THANKS STRANGER!
Or is there an even easier solution that I'm missing?
