When you think of a form, the first thing that likely comes to mind are the incredibly confusing and time-consuming forms for taxes, university and visa applications, and more. There's simpler forms like contact forms on websites and signup forms for loyalty cards, but they're still far from fun.
And yet, Typeform aims to make forms fun and whimsical, so much so that you'll want to fill them out. They've decided forms can be everything from the standard application and contact forms all the way to interactive menus and digital story books, not a prison sentence for text and blank fields.
Making a form in Typeform isn't so much different from making a form in any other app. It's in using Typeform forms that the difference is so apparent. If you're considering using it, be sure to try out one of Typeform's example forms for a quick example. You'll see one question at a time, with each answer or text field large enough to easily tap it on a mobile device. They'll also be accompanied by letters, which you can tap on your keyboard to quickly fill out the form from your computer without ever touching your mouse. It's a form that's easier to fill out both on newer phones and tablets and traditional computers.
It's this one-question-at-a-time with large button and text design that makes Typeform forms so unique. They make contact and application forms that are easy to fill out, but they also let you make far more creative "forms" that are more like interactive applications. Each multiple choice answer can include images, making them more like an app interface, and you can add text with images, pictures, or GIFs to include extra content in your form. And, with a pro account, you can add logic to your forms, to direct people to different questions or content based on what they chose in previous answers.
These features let schools make interactive quizzes and educational apps without any coding, or enable restaurants to make a visual order form without any special software. You can even use calculations in fields to add up the total price of an order, then charge your customers directly in your form using Typeform's Stripe integration.
Building a form in Typeform is, perhaps, the slowest part of using it, since you'll need to drag each element into the editor and tweak its settings individually. It's not that much different from other form apps, but the focus on individual questions at a time—and the number of options you're given—can be overwhelming. To solve that, there's a new Typeform.io initiative to let you make your own Typeform forms in code. That'll let developers speed up making forms and customizing from a base template, while still taking advantage of the Typeform form design and layout. And for everyone else, the traditional editor gives you the power to make whatever type of form-driven interface you want, with zero coding.
If you want to make forms that work great on mobile, and let you make unique forms with images, large buttons and more, Typeform is a great option to consider. It's a new way of presenting forms, and is one of the few ways to make your forms fun.
