What’s Cooking in the JotForm Kitchen

Hello everyone! If you are a fan of Jeanette’s weekly newsletter you probably already know that the JotForm Team has been kind of silent in the last month. Well, we have been busy improving our API and building real apps on top of it.

What’s Next

More Apps. Our team will continue building apps this month as well. We  are basically dogfooding our API to make sure it works well. Want an app? Post it in the comments.  
JotForm API Competition. We are going to launch a competition for developers to build apps using JotForm API. We hope to get many useful apps for JotForm users this way. There are going to be cash prices so if you know any programmers let them know about it. Do you have any app ideas you wish existed? Post in the comments below and we will make sure it would be suggested in the competition. 
JotForm Apps. After the competition we are going to launch an App Store for JotForm Apps. You will be able to install mobile apps, setup integrations with 3rd party services or use services directly in the App Store. 
JotForm Community shared almost 3000 form templates. We hope the same will happen with JotForm Apps. We hope that many people in the community will make apps or get their vendors to implement integration with JotForm.  

We need your help: If you have an app idea post it in the comments. OR if you would like to be a beta tester for one of the apps above, again, let us know in the comments. 

Exciting times!
