I wrote a small post about Wufoo already, and since I just recieved my beta key here is a short follow-up with the first form I created with Wufoo.
Just to be brief, this is one goodawesome form creator.
What’s the use?
Let’s say I wanted to setup a small survey? Wufoo is the tool of choice – no HTML knowledge required, heck – not even a website is needed since I could invite people via Wufoo right away. Really stunning. And it’s fun too – I am not sure if anyone remembers that setting up a form was this much fun.
Once I finished the form I could “download” some code to paste it into a site (an iframe), but Wufoo also provides me with raw HTML and CSS so I could use that to make my form blend in with my website. If not familiar with HTML and design, there are also a couple templates to choose from to spice it up a little.
Whatever road you take – the data is always submitted and saved at Wufoo’s server. So you are hosting a single HTML page at the most. This also shows the direction where Wufoo and most services lately are heading: an ASP modell.
Now fill this form out already (watch out as this will take you off of our blog)! :-)
(The border was my invention to highlight the form a bit. ;-) No worries!)
Once completed, you have a nifty screen inside Wufoo where you can review entries, edit and do whatever else you please. Very well done. Playing around, I am amazed by the easyness – Google could not have done any better.
