Why JotForm is the BestI've tried more form builders than I would like to remember—every one just being identical to the last—and by far, JotForm is the best. It offers the most features for free, and while most form builders can be used for free, they often limit you to the most basic features. JotForm is different, as it lets you take advantage of all the features at no cost. Of course, they have to make their money somehow, so if you want more than 10 MB of available space for uploaded files or expect more than 100 submissions per month, you'll need to upgrade to a paid plan. The free plan, however, is probably adequate for the average blogger.
JotForm makes building forms easy with its WYSIWYG editor. Adding fields is as simple as a click, and the drag-and-drop interface allows you to arrange the fields in whatever way you please. Using the Embed Form Wizard, you can insert your form into any type of web page. JotForm is a perfect editor for people who have no knowledge of HTML.
I mainly use JotForm as a way for my readers to contact me, but it can do so much more than just contact forms. You can use JotForm for almost any form you want, including surveys and applications.
JotForm lets you interact with your users too. You can display a thank you message after a submission or send an automated email to let them know that it successfully submitted. You can also reply to submissions right on JotForm's website.
One thing I really love about JotForm is its professional look. Unlike other free services, there will never be any ads and you'll never be directed to their website. You can customize the look of your form with the given themes, though I often complain about the limited number of styles. The Default theme works well for Template Faerie, but other bloggers may want something more customized. While the remaining nine themes offer more color variety, I think many—if not most—would clash with the colors and style of numerous websites and blogs. The form can be customized using CSS, but of course, not everyone is capable of that.
I'm using JotForm for both my contact form and guest post submission form. I like the form builder's simplicity and ease-of-use, and I recommend this service to anyone who is looking to create a form for free. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
