    Can I convert a form into a mobile app?

    Asked by Kit Maschmeier  on April 06, 2017 at 02:41 PM

    Are you able to have the forms be both web and app based?

    Can you export completed forms to PDFs?

    Hello, 

    I am looking for an app based program that will allow our team to perform safety inspections in field on their phone, I be able to access completed forms on my desktop and they need to be able to be exported as a pdf. 

    We are a small company with currently 11 people but expect to grow to 15 people in the next 6 months. 

    Thank you

    Hey Kit, I'm afraid we don't have an innate feature/option to achieve that. However, we have an Android Library that you (or your developer) can tinker around with to check and see if this is something feasible.

    https://developers.jotform.com/libraries#jotform-api-android 

    You may reach our API team either via email api@jotform.com or through their Support Forum https://developers.jotform.com/forum

    Alternatively, you may use a 3rd party solution. You can check out my colleague's reply on this thread showing one user turning his form into a downloadable app from the Playstore using AndroidCreator.

    Or to keep things simpler, just share the Form URL with your colleagues and all they need to do is open it on their phone's browser.

    The other question you have about converting forms to PDFs has been moved to a separate thread https://www.jotform.com/answers/1113419 

    We'll have it addressed there shortly.
