    Can I use the forms when I build an app?

    Asked by Natalia  on February 01, 2014 at 06:27 AM

    Hi there, I have a question about the forms you are offering to download.(These who has already build). Can I use them for building them in Android Apps and can I trust that they won't be deleted suddenly? And how often can a form be used by somebody? Or doesn't this matter and will it work always? Or is it better to make my own form with jotform to be sure the data will be safe?


    Greetings, Natalia

    Hi Natalia,

    When you say download, you mean the Jotform Application: JotForm Application ? Or, you mean the form source codes: How to Get Form Source Codes, forms that are created with Jotform?

    You can always create your form to Jotform and use it wherever you want and have it stored to our servers for a long time, not unless you will delete it from your account. Our forms can be use for any kind of personal and business needs. We always make sure that the results would satisfy our users/customers. Our forms are also secured, we can guarantee you the security.

    Futhermore, you might want to look at these resources:

    -Our API: http://api.jotform.com/

    -Our Developers section: http://developers.jotform.com/

    Hi supportteam,
    Yes, I just meant the source codes from JotForm, where everybody stores his jotform and where a lot of people offer their build form, app or widget. Like this section:
    So I hope that I always can use the templates of my own forms without crashes or losing data?!

    Hi Natalia,

    Yes you can make use of the form's source code to build your own app.

    Actually, when you register an account to JotForm http://www.jotform.com/signup , you will become the owner of the forms you created using your registered account. Just take note of the Terms of Use.

    Once you download the source code of your form, you can proceed building your app from the source code.
