Allow Me to Introduce Myself

Hello there! I’m Podo, a friendly cat with a knack for building purrrfect forms. It’s nice to finally meet you :)

You may be asking yourself: “Who is this cat, and what does this have to do with JotForm?” 

Well, consider me to be the new face of a team dedicated to making online forms easy. I’m here to help JotForm users discover answers to important questions, learn about innovative new features, and to celebrate special occasions with. All I ask for in return is the occasional head scratch and warm bowl of milk. 

Some fun facts about me: 

I’m a rescue from a shelter, where I previously learned how to build awesome forms using JotForm.
Jestem biegły w ponad 18 językach. (Polish for “I’m fluent in 18 different languages”)
There’s nothing in the world I enjoy more than helping JotForm users. And tuna. I LOVE tuna.
I’m dangerously cute. Obviously. 
I’m a big fan of Twitter (like all cats). Hashtag #askpodo if you have any fun questions for me! 
I am designed by the JotForm Design Team, you can read the back story here

So don’t be alarmed when you see me around. I’ll be hanging out on various pages, social media posts, newsletters, blog posts, and even a video every now and again. And if you’re allergic, don’t worry, I’m only on the computer! Feel free to say hi whenever you see me. 

Are you a cat(ish) person? On a level of 1 to 10, how adorable do you find me? Let me know in the comments!

  • JoAnna

    Lol this is cute. 10 out of 10

  • ravtv

    it's hard to make flat designed thing cute. you guys did it very well.
    but: that's a little bit weird and unserious. i would expect such things on facebook or anything, but not on an professional form designer. it's too childish.
    and also: little animated helpers got that negative "clippy" touch. you know? clippy from microsoft office. the annoying little helper.

  • Redlich

    Very good platform

    What i love most is the ability to integrate widgets(lots of widgets) to build a desired form

    Kudos to the JotForm team

  • Marie

    You are cute, but I'm a dog lover :)

  • jbellamy

    Hi Podo! I admit wholeheartedly I am a canine mom all the way but you're cute so I think you'll grow on me. LOVE Jotform!

  • tutorbydenise

    Hello Podo. Does your name have a meaning? You're a little funny looking but I kinda like it. Jotform is the greatest. I love it. I'm just starting to really use it for pre and post-test assessments. I'm finding more and more things to use it. I'll give your looks a 8. I haven't had to use for anything. I give Jotform a 10!

  • inventomx

    10 =)

  • formtoform

    I loved to use your forms and the steps and tool i am very big fan all of that. thank you so much to give such a easy thing.

  • gceit

    As an avid jotform user and cat lover, I believe that podo will increase my form production tenfold and the addition of podo to the jotform website is the best thing any company could have done. Ever. 10 Btw.

  • thepret

    I'll go for 10! Nice one Podo :-)

    You're very cute.. We really love Jotform , pretty simple for a technophobe like me to use and I'm still learning, but it's straightforward steps and its great on Facebook.. 10/10

  • EliteInsites

    I despise cats

  • gayescortlondon

    I hate cats too. Selfish and unpredictable. Combine that with claws what is to like?

  • unbreakable

    hi podo

  • wilts

    Have two. One is like a child needing the attention (like you? lol) The other is skittish to all but my daughter.

  • beatylaw

    You appear to be a waste of screen space-an indulgence of your techies without apparent value to us-the user

  • sugarmags

    @cbroadway - All cats (like all mammals) have bellybuttons :) @beatylaw - just wow. Such a lawyer thing to say, geez. @Podo - I think you are adorable and a great addition to Jotforms. Every good tech company needs a mascot, and you have more personality than most. Cheers!

  • mzeboina

    Hi Podo, am no longer getting 3 forms I have created on My Forms Menu.
    I would like to edit them.
    Kind regards

  • evacademy

    I'm not much of a cat person. I am highly allergic. So I give you a 1. But just forms are good. Why don't you have dog version too?
