Overall Satisfaction with Jotform Apps

We have used Jotform Apps for several years, and were delighted to see them unveil Apps. We deployed our first app as a service for event attendees. Some observations: Easy to publish and access: The Power Web App platform used by Jotform makes apps simple to deploy. For our use case, this was preferable to publishing native apps in app marketplaces. Relatively easy to build: The builder interface, while slightly idiosyncratic, is effective. It works much the same as Jotform Apps' form builder--the familiarity is helpful. Limited power: Essentially, an App is a collection of links, pictures, and documents. These can be displayed as larger or smaller buttons. Links can point to Jotform forms, other pages in the app, or external URLs. Customization options for all of these items are limited. So, for instance, we displayed maps as pictures and a schedule as a PDF. Well enough, but this results in something like a mobile-friendly website more than a fully featured app.
  • Employs PWA platform
  • Serves as a wrapper for a form
  • Consistent with Jotform Apps forms builder experience
  • Limited content types
  • Limited options for app elements
  • Limited options for pictures displayed in app
  • Integration with Jotform Apps forms
  • Easy to set up
  • Included in Jotform subscription
  • This improved our engagement with attendees.
  • We used this to capture feedback that was important to our planning.
  • The ease of building apps made this possible. We wouldn't have been able to provide a natively coded app.
Jotform provides an app experience not found in the core offerings of these competitors. The core of Jotform, forms, is in many respects more powerful and innovative than the forms offered by these competitors (card-type forms, for instance). Another competitor, Formaloo, does offer app templates and we are exploring this offering alongside Jotform.

Do you think Jotform Apps delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Jotform Apps's feature set?


Did Jotform Apps live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Jotform Apps go as expected?


Would you buy Jotform Apps again?


Jotform Apps work well if you want to offer your users a feedback form, for instance, along with some useful links. For businesses that don't have a solid responsive website, an app would be a way to display basic information and offer some interaction in a mobile-friendly way.
