How Jotform Apps Differs from Jotform Mobile Forms

November 16, 2021

Although these two products may appear similar at first glance, they’re completely different.

With Jotform Apps, you can create your own apps in order to share several of your forms at once.


Using progressive web app (PWA) technology, app users can install apps to their mobile devices with the Add to Home Screen option that appears when they open an app in a browser. After adding an app to their home screen, they can use it just like a native app.

Alternatively, users can access Jotform Apps directly via a browser (without installing the app to a device).

Currently, these apps can be shared via the share link, invitation option, or QR code under the Publish tab of the Jotform App Builder.


These aren’t native mobile apps, so they’re not available on an app store like the Apple App Store or Android Play.

Jotform Mobile Forms is Jotform’s main mobile app, which allows users to take most of the same actions they do on the web version of Jotform, such as viewing a form, viewing submissions, creating a form, etc.
