Is there an web API that would allow us to develop an app and connect it to JotForm?

    Hi

    Hope you are okay

    I want to develop an app that depend on your form, do you have web service API that I can use to query form data.

    eg. selecting all records filtered by city.

    Taking inconsideration that i will upgrade to premium user

    Thanks for your great help

    Yes, we do have API system that you can use to build your own apps.

    You can see more about the API (which is available for various technologies) here: http://api.jotform.com/docs/

    If you have any questions along the way that are related to the development of that same app, I would suggest taking a look and replying on our developers forum here: http://developers.jotform.com/forum

    I would like to apologize for any inconvenience. I don't think we can directly generate results in JSON format. But what we can do is send submissions to MySql Database using PHP which I believe you can then turn into a JSON format by doing some backend coding. You may use this documentation as your reference: How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    Also, if you would like to create some conditions within the form to get results or total you may use JotForm's Conditions Wizard: Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic or Calculation Widgets: http://widgets.jotform.com/category/calculation.
