SkySoft Systems let me know about the release of their 2.0 version of inForm. This application lets you easily create and distribute forms, surveys, databases, and what they call micro-applications to BlackBerrys. It cuts out all the programming and helps you build it. I know you are probably asking the same question I asked next. “What is it good for?
If you are looking for a way to create forms on your company BlackBerrys or even just be able to store a small database of clients on your device then inForm may help. I was pretty impressed with their description at this link:
One copy of inForm costs $49.95 with discounts if you get more than 10 copies. They also have a free trial where you can give it a run. Check it out at www.skysoftsystems.com
inForm has quite a few features:
- A PC based Drag and Drop form editor to create your applications. No Programming Required!
- Support for a large number of controls ranging from select boxes, dates, times, text, and more!
- Intelligent device features and full integration with the BlackBerry, including the Device Address Book, ability to make a phone call or send an email right from the form.
- Several options for transmission of data to and from the device.
- On device record storage of up to 10,000 records, with powerful search, sort, and filter capabilities.
- Form logic and functions to allow for the creation of calculators, showing and hiding controls, branch logic, and more!
- Wireless Workflow- users can send completed or partially completed forms between devices.
