ink File Picker upload option integrationAsked by intchina on May 21, 2015 at 08:51 AM
Dear JotForm Support:
I picked JotForm because of the combination of features and pricing (yes, mine is a free account at this point, but it is going to be upgraded, once things kick off).
I was grateful for the ink Filepicker integration feature, since it is the only way for iOS submission of the JotForm for my customers, because I need them to upload PDF files, not images, and iOS does not have that functionality.
However, the Filepicker team informed me upon signing up for their free account that free accounts are only available for 3 months, after which the cheapest option is $49.99, which would mean that I will have to pay that amount, if I want to use JotForm for my iOS needs.
The $9.99-49.99 JotForm prices pale in comparison of the price of that one small feature, and, frankly, I have no intention of more than doubling my form support costs.
I wanted to know if there is any other file upload widget/integration that is being developed to support iOS uploads, if there may be a workaround I do not know about, or if I may need to start looking at workarounds or another form creator.
It seems to me that you are looking for an alternative to InkFilePicker or at least a method to workaround it of some sort.
Unfortunately, because of the strict nature of Apple's iOS your options are going to be fairly limited.
A similar integration that we have to that would be Kloudless which allows 3gb per month but if you exceed that then obviously you would have to pay them as with any and we have no control over that as nor with InkFilePicker.
We have a Kloudless Widget for this and it works in the same manner allowing users to connect to third-party integrations to upload other files through the widget itself accepting most.
