Here's a screenshot of the form builder screen — you build your form by dragging and dropping fields, and can preview what your form will look like in real time:
When you're ready to use your form, you can copy and paste a link to send to your users, or grab one line of HTML code that you can embed in your blog or website. The great part about this is that you can completely integrate your form within your existing design, maintaining your brand.
You can watch submissions roll in via email notifications or an RSS feed. And once you're ready to process the results you can download an Excel spreadsheet containing the submissions, or import that data into a database or CRM system.
The best thing is that you can create a free account that provides most of the functionality. If you're looking for some heavy use, paid plans start at $5/month with no contracts or setup fees.
