    How do I fill and submit forms using the Mobile App?

    Asked by torqtorq on April 30, 2014 at 09:09 AM

    I noticed that the mobile app appears to be for viewing form results and not for submitting forms. Is there a mobile solution for filling out forms that is not browser-based? If not, this system is useless to me.

    Hello,

    Our Mobile Apps are intended for administration of your Jotform account - forms and submissions - not the actual filling of the form - I'm afraid you cannot use them to fill out the form: 

    We would however, be interested in helping you develop your mobile app that would be use to fill out your form -or at least point you in the right direction:

    A few questions first:

    1. Which form would you like to be used on a mobile app?

    2. Which platform are you intending on using the app on (Iphone - Android - Windows Mobile)?

    Looking forward to your response.

    Titus,
    I noticed that the app was for viewing results only. This is not something
    I need to do on a mobile phone; we need to collect data remotely at each of
    our company's stores, and that data can be viewed at our convenience from a
    desktop computer.
    1. I have built a store maintenance audit form that we would like our
    employees to use at each of our store locations.
    2. Our employees use iPads, but ideally it would support all three
    platforms you mentioned.

    I believe your primary approach would be on Apple's platform.

    You would need an Iphone developer to accomplish this - it is quite possible to create and publish an Iphone app using your form.

    The process is quite lengthy as described here: http://support.brightcove.com/en/app-cloud/docs/step-step-guide-publishing-apple-app-store-using-mac

    I'm considering an alternative that woudl be easier -

    What do you think about having your form have an Icon on your homescreen (on the Iphone platform)- and opens using the browser - but with the form designed to look better for a mobile screen?

    Let us know.
