    I'm a high school chemistry teacher and I think JotForms could be used with iPods or smartphones to collect data from labs.  We use iPod Touches a lot in my class and I'm wondering if the JotForms can be viewed on these devices.

    Hi runfardvs,

    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, JotForm has been tested to work on an iPad or iPhone. However, if you intend to collect files using the form, there is a known issue regarding file upload button not working in these devices. To address this, you may find this forum thread helpful:

    Please try other iPad-compatible mobile browsers to check if the file upload button works there. Unfortunately, it is a limitation inherent to iPad and iPhone and we cannot do anything about it at the moment.

    In addition, being the owner of the forms, you may find the JotForm iPhone App very helpful in managing your forms, submissions, and other important information about your data.

    Hope this will still be helpful. Please let us kow if you have any other concerns or questions. Thank you for using JotForm!
