    Most mobile websites today use standard HTML, just like an ordinary website, albeit using a different layout to fit in mobile device screens. If your website uses HTML, it would be easy as a few clicks to add the form to your site. I advise that you use iframe embed codes though, for a more fool-proof solution.

    To get your form's iframe codes:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Embed Form
    3.  Click iFrame

    4.  Copy the codes provided in the succeeding screen

    You can then embed the codes in your website.

    On the other hand, if your site still uses WML (Wireless Markup Language), I'm afraid there is no possible solution to embed the form since it is HTML-based, and WML and HTML cannot be mixed together.

    Let us know if you're having problems embedding the form to your site. Also, please provide us the link to the exact page where you are trying to embed the form. Any extra information that might help would be appreciated.

    Hi mobihairnetwork,

    Yes indeed, JotForm has been tested to work compatibly with majority of smartphones, mobile phones and tablets. But you also have to take into consideration a number of factors such as keeping your forms small and simple so that it will load up easily on mobile phones with lower specs and/or located in poorer coverage areas.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions or concerns, we're here to help you.
