The Form Devil!

27 02 2010

Let me share with you a new tool I just discovered called www.FormDevil.com

Form Devil is an excellent tool for building your own database driven(php coded) forms.

This tool is amazing because it allows you to build a custom form for your website – get the code and give it to your designer so they can easily embed it in your pages or a template.

This is their tag line and it’s totally true:

  • Professional Online Forms
  • No Recurring Fees
  • You Keep The Code

We all know the more you do for yourself the less you have to pay your designer. I say teach a man to fish and he will eat forever, catch his fish for him and he will eat once and go hungry.

With their on-line interface the Form Devil crew has made it possible for you to be as savy as a php coder with out ever touching the code. They will give you a 30 day trial for free. If you like the product after that it is $47.00 for the year or sign up at their sister site Form Experts for as little as $7 a month. This is alot cheaper then hiring a php coder, save yourself the trouble and create your own forms with this fabulous tool.

Their forms are great if you want to embed a pay-pal shopping cart in your site and you can’t afford to have your designer do all the work of setting up all THOSE DIFFERENT FORMS. Like wise if you don’t know php and you’re a designer/virtual assistant you can use this service to get all your php code up and running.

I also discovered you can easily tie “form devil forms” into the your go daddy MySql database admin control panel. What does this translate to in non-tech speak – it means the data the form collects can be routed to a database on your server that can be accessed by other tools.

For example, let’s say you are using a form to collect contact information for your clients and you want a database that creates a mailing list on your go daddy server – well with these forms this is 100% possible. 😉

As we give up our fear of technology we find the flow of the universal power – possibly turning us from little angry devils into tech savvy angels floating to heaven!
