    The problem is that the widgets are wrapped in an iFrame and is called in another server. Have you tried embedding using the iFrame embed code of the form instead? You can also try embedding using the form's full source code

    See which embed code works for you.

    We'll wait for your response.

    I also was able to see the issue on your App. Unfortunately, the issue might be on the App side and not on the form anymore because using the form URL, or embedded on a page, it does work.

    Using the forrm:


    using in your App

    As you can see on the screens above, I made the test using my Android device.

    Perhaps you need to check on how the form was added into your App. Try making test using different embed option possible.
