    Hello Turnupgear,

    Our forms are mobile optimized and they appear good on mobile devices. But, it really depends on the webpage layout and field sizes and you can inject mobile specific custom css code in your form to adjust the look of your form in mobile devices. 

    There are few steps required for your form to optimize for mobile:

    1. Change your form field label to align top.

    2. Embed your form with its iFrame embed code.

    2. Please inject the following custom css code and see if this helps you:

    @media only screen

    and (min-device-width : 320px)

    and (max-device-width : 480px) 

    {.form-label-top {width: 220px !important; font-size: 12px !important;}

    .form-header {width: 220px !important;}


    Please check this cloned form and see if this appears as expected on mobile devices:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41021313501937? Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide shoudl help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Thank you!

    You have to inject the custom CSS codes to your form by following this guide: How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes


    I did checked it using my Android Device and using emulator but all looks the same with responsive formatting:

    Did you check it using your actual mobile device?
