    Native Android app alternatives for Jotform

    Asked by SweatyYeti on April 22, 2017 at 07:49 PM

    Hi!

     

    Loving Jotform.

     

    Can we convert a Jotform into a native Android form? 

     

    Can output be sent to Google Sheets, rather than a PDF being dropped into my Google Drive?

     

    Can I pull data FROM a Google Sheet to modify a Jotform?

    For the first question: Can we convert a Jotform into a native Android form? 

    Are you referring to the JotForm app in Android? If yes, please check this link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jotform.

     

    For the second question: Can output be sent to Google Sheets, rather than a PDF being dropped into my Google Drive?

    Yes, that is possible here in JotForm. You can send submission data to Google Sheets rather than a PDF. You need to integrate your form with Google Spreadsheet. Please check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/228-How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Google-Spreadsheet.

     

    For the last question: Can I pull data FROM a Google Sheet to modify a Jotform?

    I have moved the last question to a new thread so we can assist you properly. Please wait for our response on this URL: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1126302.

     

    Hope that helps. Please do get back to us if you have questions. Thank you.

    Integration: so easy! I just didn't see the icon. 

    Drawing data from Google Sheets: thanks for the quick response. Not a biggie that I can't draw from Google Sheets... but glad I can get halfway there using Excel.

     

    Native App: I think we are talking at cross-purposes. I want to turn my JotForm into an app which I can publish, rather than having my people use their browsers. An adequate mid-way point would be a JotForm app which would allow people to view then fill their forms within a general JotForm environment.

    Honestly, I don't see what the point is of your app - the user can view submissions, but can't actually DO anything in it. 

    So... anyway to turn my forms into apps, or do something more user-friendly than sending a URL to be completed in the smartphone web-browser?

    You can try PhoneGap but that would require some web programming skills.

    Here's another one that might help you to create apps http://www.appsgeyser.com/create/url/.

    You can also try http://www.appypie.com/ but it has some fee attached.
