May 10, 2012  |  Ashley Clayton

We are currently working with Apple to enable the ability to sign up from iOS devices.  We're sorry for any inconvenience this has caused, and hope to have this issue resolved very soon.

In the meantime, please email info@FormMobi.com and we can get you signed up.

Or, you can visit www.FormMobi.com from a desktop or laptop computer in order to complete the sign-up process. 

Tough cases for tough jobs

May 10, 2012  |  Amber Hanneken

If you've invested in a mobile device or devices for your company, whether it be iPad, iPhone, or Android™, you want to be sure they're protected.  Pick up any of these devices and they can seem fragile.  When you work in the elements the last thing you want to worry about is being delicate.  You may even be questioning if a tablet or Smartphone is a wise business investment even with FormMobi’s incredible time-saving data collection abilities.

Luckily, there are a number of products that offer serious protection.  Here are a few brands we like and you should definitely check out:

Otterbox www.otterbox.com
Otterbox makes cases “for every lifestyle,” according to their site.  I know a lot of professionals, including people in our office, who rock these bad boys and they are as rugged as they look.  The Defender Series cases offer the most protection. Made of layers of silicone and hi-impact polycarbonate, they can...

Seeing green

April 24, 2012  |  Amber Hanneken

Going “green” from a business perspective is not only good for our environment but practical.  Whether it’s shutting down computers and turning off lights in the office or cutting back on paper use, you’re also saving a good deal of money.

With FormMobi, the cost savings and environmental benefits are obvious.  You don’t need a fancy carbon calculator to tell you that by eliminating paper from your data management process, you’re making a big difference.  Plus, by killing the paper trail you not only save on paper costs but ink, storage, postage, gas from delivering files or running back and forth to the office, and more.

Once FormMobi is integrated into your business, you’ll be more than happy to brag about your paperless office to both clients and associates.

A simple Dropbox/FormMobi integration using ifttt

April 17, 2012  |  Ashley Clayton

DropboxDropbox is a great tool for managing all your files on-the-go.  The FormMobi team uses it for sharing to-do lists, organizing information for product updates and dozens of other things.  We'll be releasing a direct FormMobi/Dropbox integration later this year.  But, you can do a simple integration with it right now using a new web application called ifttt.com, pronounced like "Lift" without the "L".  You can think of it as a Swiss Army knife for integrating different web based products together.

Using FormMobi's Auto Email feature combined with ifttt's email and Dropbox channels, you can have an instant integration between FormMobi and Dropbox where every time you sync a file from your iOS or Android device back to FormBase, it automatically gets added to a specified folder in your Dropbox account.  It literally takes just a few minutes to configure.  Click here for a How-To doc on setting it up.  You'll also love all the...
