    You have an option for "file upload." However, this does not work on an iPad or iPhone.  Do you have a "file upload" option that works on these devices?

    We are recommending our users to install iCab or Opera Mini to make this to work on iPads/iPhones.

    Give it a try and let us know if you need further assistance

    Update: We have a possible new solution for the file uploads on iphone/ipad. We have just added a new form field type under Power Tools called Filepicker.io.

    Filepicker.io is a web service that lets your users choose files from the Cloud. Basically what that means is that your users can choose files from their Facebook, Dropbox, Box, Gmail etc. accounts. There is still an option to upload files from a computer.

    So, if you use this new field type most users will upload files from their computer like before, but your users from mobile phone will have some options to pass the file through another app such as dropbox. 

    It is not a perfect solution, we wish we could just make the upload button work on iphone but unfortunately it is not possible. This solution does not make it easy but at least it makes it possible for some of your users. 

    You will need to sign-up (free for 2GB/month) with Filepicker.io and get an API key to use this feature. We have a blog post about it here:
