    Yes you can do this with JotForm. Simply create an online form using Form Builder, then use the Fillable PDF to turn your online form into a PDF form that can be filled offline.

    Not sure how your mobile app will work with the fillable PDF.

    Are you using Android or iOS?

    I think that the way to do it is to embed the PDF in your app. So you would need to lookup how to do that. But that could be quite difficult to code.

    Another open you have is to not use the fillable PDF. Instead have a hyperlink to your online form. So your users can open it in their browser. That would be allot easier.

    Or you could combine both approaches and add a web view to your app. The web view could open your online form. This might be best, as your app will maintain control of the process (instead of opening an external web browser).

    In any case, we wont be able to help you code your app. If you need a programmer you may consider hiring one. We recommend the Upwork freelance website. You can post your project details there and receive applicants.

    May I suggest that you open a FREE plan first. And test it before signing up for a paid plan. Its possible that it wont work how you expect. The fillable form might not be the solution you are looking for. Because the form doesn't look like a regular form. It badly needs an update. And you might be disappointed.

    So if you are signing up just for that one feature, please test it first with a FREE plan.
