More than just an online form tool

Great follow up and valuable resources sent via email.

Pros

Simple drag and drop interface that was still very powerful in function.

Cons

No major issues, however many free form tools are sufficient to achieve a similar experience.

Reasons for choosing Formidable Forms

Formidable Forms had the appropriate integrations that were necessary for the project.

Top Forms Builder For Making Web and Mobile Apps on WordPress

Formidable Forms has helped solved every single forms-based challenge - from simple lead gen and contact forms, through complex business workflows.

Pros

The built-in features for creating custom forms-based business applications are the best.

Cons

Some of the documentation on the most advanced features is sometimes difficult to get through, but that's easily overcome through the generous support offered by expert advanced users in the Formidable Community.

Reasons for choosing Formidable Forms

Formidable Forms quickly set itself apart with its powerful third-party integrations, native report building features, workflow/automation capabilities and its API.

Reasons for switching to Formidable Forms

I kept looking for the best *native, built-in* features and functionality for building web applications. Once I found Formidable Forms, I've nenver looked back.

One of the better WordPress form plugins, with some limitations

We've used Formidable forms on various WordPress sites, particularly when the website requires an interactive or more advanced type of form, which Formidable definitely excels at.

Pros

Formidable is a great WordPress form plugin at its' core, and comes packed with a ton of features that other form plugins try to charge for. If you only need basic forms, you won't find a better plugin that's well-built and easy to use as Formidable. The paid version of Formidable is also awesome, with some pretty nifty features such as pageable (sliding) forms, and 3rd party integrations

Cons

If you're a developer who needs to make style customization and modifications, Formidable will give you quite the headache. Given the limitations of the plugin, and the way the code is structured, some basic CSS styling takes significantly more work than it should.

Advanced Forms Integration for your WP Sites

Fantastic

Pros

The ability to have so much customization from the ability to build out forms, views, reporting, etc. Support is fantastic as well.

Cons

Any plugin/product could always update or add. We have no issues and Formidable Forms continues to update and add new innovative add-ons though out their updates.

Reasons for choosing Formidable Forms

We felt Formidable Forms integration with other products had a definitive advantage over the competition.

Formidable Forms is my Form Builder of Choice

I have built small, mid, and large sized web applications using formidable forms. It is the cornerstone of my development business as I develop fairly complicated, large scale, web applications. Formidable takes away hours and hours of coding and provides features and programming interfaces that others do not. In addition to that, their documentation and support is great.

Pros

The features I use most are the API interface, actions, and filters. The ability to access these features were the deciding options for my selection of formidable.

Cons

Would like to see more control on submit buttons and modal dialogs

Reasons for choosing Formidable Forms

They offered more development features than the other products
