Feedback I got from my partner is that some people were asking 'where's the app?' - it's just a mobile web browser form, you don't need an app, but people may be so conditioned that they expect (or require?) a separate app for every single activity they engage in.
And yet... other people were very appreciative of being able to run our demo on any major mobile smartphone (android, etc). Defining how your service works seems like, in large part, it'll shape what sorts of people use it.
The big reasons I created the app were push notifications and offline data collection. The app is actually mostly JS, so in theory an android port shouldn't be too difficult... just waiting to see if people request that as a feature (or must-have.)
Yes, offline is useful, as is uploading pictures, although ios6 will finally bring that to iphone. we didn't go with an app yet until there's some demand - and there may be enough to justify it now, but I'm not pulling the trigger yet. It's a lot easier to add features to a mobile website (for android, ios, etc) than gen new versions of apps for each.
good luck. :)
Oh, and the 'demo' is that you can use the app for free for 30 days. Go ahead and try it. :)
Bug report: my form seems to be stuck in an infinite loop on the first question ("what's your email address?") -- after answering it, it flashes the next question ("what's your email", which I added), but then goes back to the first question. This is on the web; haven't tried the mobile app. https://www.getformly.com/forms/821084b0-73c8-4b96-a85e-53db...?
There's a x on the top right of every guider to end the demo. Did you just miss it? Is that not obvious enough as an "exit tutorial" button ?
Will look into the bug, I added the "What is your email address?" question very last minute after some initial feedback.
The automatic "what is your email address?" question seems a little weird to me. As a form creator, it's easy enough to add if I want to ask that question, and that lets me keep control over the experience. There could be cases where I may not want to ask for an email address, or maybe I want to put it in the middle or the end of the form. And as an aside--isn't the email address implied by the URL I clicked on, which was sent to my email?
I get into the demo but it's not obvious how this relates to mobile, specifically.
Also, am not sure about your pricing ... $50 / month feels like a lot for 100 responses.
Pricing is hard, really hard. I couldn't decide what to charge, so in the interest of shipping, I just went for 2x what I thought was reasonable. It will be one of the first things I a/b test.
Edit: Pricing updated!
I have experienced the pain point but, it seems a wee bit simple to shell out $50/month. I could just install Wordpress (quoting it for it's simplicity) with Gravity Forms or cForms on a cheapo $5 PHP host.
Running it through curl doesn't raise any flags as far as I can tell...

As far as pricing is concerned, I totally agree. I will work on it.
