    Is there any way to create an offline form with Image capture and embed it into an App Inventor or Thunkable app using the HTML web viewer and then create a pdf with the data input by the user.

    Example: a Recipe Name & Time with all the Ingredients, Description, and a photo of the dish cooked, save to pdf.

    The pdf can then be printed or uploaded to a database.

    I have been looking for months for a solution to be able to create a pdf with a photo capture on my app. so far I have not found a single platform or app able to do this.

    Is there any way I would be able to create a form like this on Jotform for Mobile.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, our offline form is the fillable PDF and the kiosk mode feature of our Jotform Mobile App. It is not possible to access the web/online form if you have embedded it in an offline app.


    If you use the online form then you can generate a PDF report/document with the user data on it.
