Discover the New Creative Interactive Typeforms

Every now and then, we need to get information through surveys and forms. It's a means for us to get information and give better support and services.

But, let's face it, filling-up forms isn't an exciting thing to do. It's down right boring. Like this example below:

But what if you are presented with something like this one?

Powered by Typeform

That's a whole lot more fun isn't it?

This is actually a discovery from a good experience.

I recently got a request for a survey. And as you well know, most surveys can be a drag. But not this one! It was entertaining. I hardly noticed the time pass.

Guess what I did?​

I went on to find out what app they used. That survey left me smiling and feeling good. Wouldn't it be nice to let others experience that too?

And I found out what it is.​

It is Typeform. A new app for creating forms and surveys on your website. It gives a totally new experience on filling-up forms. You would hardly feel like you're filling up a form.

Is it free?

Yes!

We can use it for free with its logo appearing at the end of the form. I find it so cool, I am using it for my Contact form.
