Facebook Friday App Review – JotForm

Print Friendly

JotForm is home to the first web-based WYSIWYG form builder boasting over 500,000 users since it went live in 2006. It’s simple user interface revolutionised online form building, allowing any Tom, Dick or Harry to build a web form in minutes without the requirement of any HTML knowledge, and best of all – it has a free entry level package.

How it works
JotForm’s WYSIWYG makes form creation impressively simple and when you do hit a road bump, the thorough User Guide will more than likely help you through.

Integration with Facebook
Once your form is built to your specification, you will want to integrate it into your Facebook page. This is where it could become tricky, but JotForm’s on-screen tutorial makes it very simple for you. Simply hit the “Facebook Integration” button and JotForm will guide you through the process.

Cost
JotForm has a free entry level package offering any user unlimited form creation, 100 MB of storage and 10 receipt of payments a month. Prices then rise to $9.95 & $49.95 a month for the Premium and Professional accounts respectively. What’s more, is the free version includes no adverts or JotForm logos appearing on your form – a unique selling point of JotForm.

Conclusion
Overall, JotForm is a great tool, especially if you are able to utilise the free version. It’s simple interface makes it easy for anyone to use and it and the Facebook Integration tool turns what would normally be a tricky task into a relatively simple one.
