    Which method is best to embed considering mobile phones?  The default? or entire source script?

    The default Embed <> codes calls a JavaScript file which contains the form's source codes. Failure to load the JavaScript file, if JavaScript is disabled in the mobile browser, means the form will not load at all.

    Source code works best in this scenario as the entire form becomes an integral part of your page. The downside to using source code is that any changes you made in the form using the Form Builder will not reflect on your page unless you update the source codes manually.

    Iframe is your best option when looking at the pros and cons of the above-mentioned embed methods. Although the speed to which the form is rendered partly depends on our server's performance, the form is always updated and does not have to rely with JavaScript enabled in the browser. However, with JavaScript disabled, some features (required field validation, page breaks, etc) will not function, but that is also the case with the other embed methods.

    Hope you find this answer enlightening. Let me know if you have other questions in mind.
