Introducing the New Mobile Form Platform

We’ve just released our new mobile form platform and we encourage you to try it out now from your smartphone or tablet.

  • Form navigation is optimized for touch screen devices with a virtual keyboard
  • If supported by the device (browser), a different virtual keyboard should be provided depending on the type of data to input. For example, when a phone number field is selected, the device will show a phone dial with large numbers. When moving to an email field, the keyboard will show the ‘@’ and ‘.’ keys at prominent positions.
  • Form adapts to the size of the screen and form layout changes when switching from portrait to landscape mode (or conversely)

Mobile Form FormSmarts

To access the mobile version of a form, use the URL http://m.f8s.co/your-form-id or add ?mobile=yes to the FormSmarts.com URL of the form.

e.g. If the URL of a form is http://formsmarts.com/form/lqh, you can access its mobile version at http://m.f8s.co/lqh or http://formsmarts.com/form/lqh?mobile=yes

Once the platform goes out of beta (i.e. public testing phase), FormSmarts will automatically serve the desktop or mobile version of a form depending on the client device.

Besides the iPhone and iPad, we’ve tested mobile forms with a wide range of Android smartphones and tablets, as well as BlackBerry devices. Please share with us your experience using mobile forms with your own device.
