The fine folks over at Overcommited have created a really neat iPad app called Entries that makes it easier for forms to be filled out on Apple’s tablet. Wufoo forms already look and work well on the iPad out of the box, but Entries takes things a step further by taking advantage iPad-specific controls and redesigning and reformatting the form layout so that it’s catered to the touch experience.
Entries is especially useful for any organizations and teams that both build and fill out their own forms for data entry. Perhaps you are a student who uses Wufoo forms to take notes. Perhaps you take orders or conduct polls in person by filling out a form. Perhaps you are running a conference and plan to gather feedback via a kiosk with an embedded iPad and Wufoo form. Then Entries would be the ideal solution for bringing the magic of Wufoo to your situation.
Entries is available right now and you can get it for $24.99 from the iTunes Store.
The images above highlight some of Entries cool features: contextual date pickers, simple multiple choice question turned into big toggle buttons rather than radio buttons, and more complex multiple choice questions getting bigger easier-to-tap targets. Entries even supports proper error messaging for things like missing required fields.
Big thanks to Harold Emsheimer, Jonathan Younger, and the whole team over at Overcommitted for their excellent work on this app.
For the developer-curious, Entries uses the Login API to make authenticating through Wufoo possible, the Forms API to see the users forms, the Fields API to see the structure, and the Entries API for submitting new form data.
