Can I turn a form into an APK installer?

    Unfortunately, all www.appypie.com really does is create a advanced HTML page that points to links, it doesn't really make an app of any kind, maybe a glorified launcher at best.

     

    I think what i would be asking is "do you have something to turn these forms into a APK executable file?" and can it be launched like an app?

     

    The problem with this, and why it won't be done is that suddenly the code becomes yours and you sorta don't need JotForm anymore....sorta defeats their business.

    I'm afraid we don't have an innate feature/option to achieve that. However, we have an Android Library that you (or your developer) can tinker around with https://developers.jotform.com/libraries#jotform-api-android to check and see if this is something feasible.

    If you need help, you may reach our API team either via email api@jotform.com or through their Support Forum https://developers.jotform.com/forum

    On the other hand, the simplest way to achieve this without the need to build your own is to use a 3rd party solution.

    You can also check out my colleague's reply on this thread showing one JotForm user turning his form into a downloadable app from the Playstore using AndroidCreator.
