    Convert a Form to an Android App?

    Asked by t3rra on February 01, 2014 at 05:57 PM

    I have a client who would like a simple 6 question jotform converted into an android app. I dont think that can be done on jotform.com, but wanted to make sure. Also, I've seen lots of sites that allow you to convert other websites into android apps...I'm wondering if I could create a jotform, embed it into a simple site, then convert that sites page to an android app via the online app making sites? Thank you for any suggestions.

    Thank you for the reply. What I meant to say was, is there a way to create an app, that has a form in it, without knowing how to code an android app?

    Hello,

    How about this http://freeandroidappmaker.com/? You can also try PhoneGap but that would require some web programming skills. Here's another one that might help you to create apps http://www.appsgeyser.com/create/url/.

    Great, thank you. I also found www.appypie.com, which is very easy to set up, though somewhat limited and has a small monthly fee. Trying appsgeyser.com now.

    Unfortunately, all www.appypie.com really does is create a advanced HTML page that points to links, it doesn't really make an app of any kind, maybe a glorified launcher at best.

     

    I think what i would be asking is "do you have something to turn these forms into a APK executable file?" and can it be launched like an app?

     

    The problem with this, and why it won't be done is that suddenly the code becomes yours and you sorta don't need JotForm anymore....sorta defeats their business.
