    Yes, you can use JotForm forms on iPad. Simply open them in Safari and hand them over.

    We have tested both JotForm Form Builder and the forms on iPad. They both work fine.

    the apple iphone and ipad app though is awesome

    you can get it to automatically notify you that a form has been submitted

    and view and search submitted forms

    Opera Mini or one of the other iPad browsers might allow file uploads. At least access to picture files should be possible. I will give them a try when I have some free time. I especially want to give Atomic a try on iPad. "Tabs" is a big missing feature on Safari.

    Are you thinking about creating an app that would do this?  It would be sick!

    Thanks for the great tool.

    aytekin, if you had an app that was on the ipad that could push forms to from a central account I'd go absolutely bananas! 


    I'm looking at deploying roughly 50 iPads to customers and if all they had to do was tap on an app and select the form they needed to fill out, fill it out an press submit they'd go bananas.

    I am pretty excited about how all this is working right now anyway. Thanks a ton!

    Opera and the other IPad browsers did not solve the file upload problem on the iPad.  Does anyone have any other options or solutions to get a form to upload a file on the iPad?

    Thanks for any help.

    Please open a separate thread for your issue, seeing that it is unrelated to the original topic in this thread. Also, please include as much information about your problem in the new thread - "Why can you not upload a file?", "Does the file upload field display correctly?", etc. you get the drift.

    Thank you for cooperating. We are looking forward to helping you with your issue.
