Using Jotform with a diy mobile app builder

    Asked on April 30, 2016 at 04:19 AM

    I have created a form on jotform, which i want to display on a mobile app builder.  Is this possible?

    I dont want the user to have to login again when answering the form.  I want jot form to capture the user details from the mobile app, so that I can view the answers against the user's name from jot form's backend. 

    Is this possible?

    May I ask which mobile app builder will you be using to create your app? If it is possible to embed an iFrame code to the app using the app builder, then it might be possible to use jotform for your app. However, if it is not possible to embed forms to your app using the app builder, then unfortunately it will not be possible to use Jotform for your app.

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    I am trying to decide between Mobincube and MobiCart. In both, I can embed an iframe code. My concern is whether my clients will have to login again to jotform to respond to my survey. Or will jotform be able to pick up the user details from the Mobile app?

    If I understood correctly you need the app to pre-populate the form fields.

    It is possible to pre-populate a form via url parameters. You can see an example here: 

    You can see more information about this here: 

    But I need to make further tests to see if it is possible for the app to communicate with the iFrame.

    We'll let you know as soon as we have more details.

    Hi Carina,
    Yes, this is what I am looking for. One of your colleagues created a form to suit my requirement: 

    I want to embed this in an iframe. I want the user to see her answers (measurements) & result (body shape) when she comes back to this form in the mobile app. I also want to be able to see the answers against her name from the jotform back end. If she updates these details, I want to see the updated details too. Is this possible?

    Thanks so much for your efforts in testing this out! I look forward to hearing from you....


    Hi Christian,

    This form doesnt have user name details. So my Q was... when it is embedded in an iframe in the mobile app, will jotform save the submission under the user name of the mobile app user? In other words, can I see (from jotform's back end) who is submitting these measurements & body type details?

    Thanks for taking the time to answer!

    Base on my understanding, what you would like to happen is to retrieve the submission data of a particular form submitter and show it on the mobile app where he/she made the submissions, is that correct? Also, you would like for him/her to have the option to edit the data, right?

    If you what you want is to extract data from the submission page to your mobile app, I would suggest you try to check these documentations, Jotform API Documentation and Jotform API Libraries. You might need to hire a developer to work on it.

    Thank you.
