What can you use the app for?

FormBakery is a form creation application that provides an easy interface for users to create forms. By simply dragging and dropping components, a new form can be created without the need for users to go into the backend of the form or write the code that generates the form. Hence, this application removes the need to actually write the codes that generate the forms. Users can get ready-to-use forms in minutes without spending hours writing codes or paying a programmer for billable time. For any website, forms will always be a part of the website or a potential add-on to websites. Hence, FormBakery can provide a method through which simple and straightforward forms can be added to a website.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Within 3 months, FormBakery was created by Kumail Hunaid who was dedicated and determined to bring this application to the marketplace. Rather than not acting on the inspiration behind the idea for FormBakery, sleepless night and many hour of effort helped in creating an application that is useful to many people. Using forms on websites is a common activity. Hence, being able to effortlessly create forms for users has made FormBakery hugely popular.

What are the differences to other apps?

A distinguishing part of FormBakery is that it will ensure that the user’s code is executable before sending it to the user. Users can also apply validation to the form. Also, this validation involvves both the client side and server side code, which many other form generators will not allow or provide. The user keeps the code without any need to return because the code was half-baked.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

It is quite easy to use FormBakery. Users simply select the component of the form they want to use. As soon as a form component is selected, it highligh options which can be used to modify the components. When design is complete and all the components have been dragged into the desired posiitons, the user can export the form and paste the HTML code on their website.

How does the registration process work?

Users do not register but can pay for and use a day pass. At the FormBakery website, form creation can begin by simply dragging and dropping the form components on the specified space. After creating the simple forms, users can provide their name and email address to have the forms exported. By clicking the export button, users will be presented options to copy and paste the code. Also, by clicking on the other coding styles such as PHP, users are prompted to pay for a day pass using Paypal. Once payment is sent a day pass code is sent to the user and this code can be used to access the restricted areas or payment-only area of FormBakery.

What does it cost to use the application?

Hiring a programmer to develop forms can cost upwards of $80 per hour. However, users can get a day pass on FormBakery for only $3 and this will guarantee the user unlimited exporting of data. A programmer would normally need to spend at least 2 hours coding and working on CSS styles, testing and client/server side validation.

Who would you recommend the application to?

For those who are not programmers or who do not like to meddle with codes and programming, FormBakery presents an ideal solution for creating and adding forms to a website or other application. People who are not code-savvy or those who hate anything that does not have an intuitive user interface will love FormBakery, especially with the availability of the form component drag and drop feature. Anybody who is able to drag components across a screen can use the application and FormBakery provides email support.
