  1. add MobileMe/iDisk Sync support

    Would be good to see MobileMe / iDisk sync support built into this excellent App.

    BTW, your competitors have it in some of their apps! :-)

      I agree, this would be good. It’s all about how much time I have available and which features need to be implemented first. That’s why this forum is so great. I can gauge which features my customers feel are most important for me to implement. This is a good one. Thanks!

    • How about a reminder field

      Example: My Insurance is due or what ever i schedule due, can you add a field that will notify me that it's due. can you have it prompt me when the app opens and also on the device screen app with a bubble that i have one or more due forms.

        Ideally it would be great if we were allowed to add entries to the Calendar app from within other apps. Just like we can add contacts to the Contacts database from our apps. That way you wouldn’t need to launch an app to see if there’s a reminder waiting for you. Although eventually when Apple releases the Push Notification Service we should be able to provide something like that.

        Feature request noted. Thanks!

      • Add the ability to visually create field groups or categories inside a form

        For example if I have a form with 20+ fields it would be helpful to be able to group fields and visually segregate them into categories. It could even be something as simple as a “Field” that is nothing but a transparent box showing the blue background. Just some way to offer visual segregation of like fields inside the form so that it is not just a large list of fields. Love the app by the way, keep up the good work!

        • Improved search/filter

          Would like to be able to select the filed on which to search rather than search all fields ina form. Better, be bale to search on more than one field with and/or logic:

          last name = Smith AND first name = Tom
          state=CA OR state=NY

          Additional refinements could include
          searching for field values using contains, greater than, less than, greater or equal, less or equal, not equal

          • How about costomizable fields

            It would be great if, i could create my own fields. For an example: i would like to enter only IP address without enter the decimal point and it should know that it only uses numbers not letters. By the way i love your product. I have all the other data programs and tapforms is the only one i use now.

            • Offer an automatic date and/or timestamp

              I hope this does not exist currently - as I cannot find it, but i want to remove as much user input as possible. When creating a new record with a time and or date field, they should self populate with the current date and time. The user could then click into them to change manually if required, but if not this saves a half dozen user 'taps' and makes data entry quicker.

                When you edit a date field, it auto sets the date to the current field. But you have to tap the Save button to save it since I don’t even create the object until you enter that screen. Then tapping the save button will of course insert into the database.

                There is a built-in date_created field that I have not yet exposed to the interface. It auto sets to the current timestamp, but is not editable.

              • import pick lists

                I like the addition of pick lists to v1.5 but I have some long lists I need to add (e.g., all the bird species in my area) and I don't want to have to type in them all when I already have them as a text file on my Mac. It would be great if I could import a text file and make it into a pick list (e.g., import a one column csv file with the first row as pick list name and the subsequent rows as the list options). Add this to the click wheel List field type…

                  It’s possible to do this by emailing yourself your pick list with each word or phrase on a single line, then using iPhone 3.0’s copy and paste function to paste your words or phrases into the Pick List edit screen in Tap Forms.

                      • Table View

                        There should be different kinds of Views to see the forms, like Table View (Something like a spreadsheet) This would make it easier to compare the entries in a particular form.

                            It would be great if one of the field options was a simple table. Even if it was two columns wide with "x" number of rows, that would be useful for adding groups of numbers.

                            • ability to import and export forms and pick lists

                              It would be great if it was possible to export everything in Tap Forms to a text based format. Being able to import and export data via CSV is a welcome feature, but it would be very nice to be able to export and import (empty) forms and (full) pick lists. XML might be a reasonable format for this. Having the ability to convert *everything* in Tap Forms to an XML file would help with any desktop app you might want to develop. Finally, having a way to share forms between users (via export->import) would help build up your community...

                                    It would be helpful to be able to add a display mask (especially to numeric and date fields) so that you can set how many decimal points show, if commas show or not, specific date formates, etc. It would be most helpful to allow you to create your own custom masks, but you could also supply a list of common masks like money ($0,000.00 at least in US), percent (*100 and display w/ %), zip code (00000-0000 again in US), social security or tax id number (000-00-0000 and 00-0000000 respectively), long date (dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss), short date (d/m/yy), custom date (i.e.…

                                      This would be a great tool if possible, especially being able to show the check mark boxes as being checked off rather then being exported as yes / no answers in an email. This would also give people the ability to print on a mac or pc.

                                        Now that I have an iPad, Tap Forms looks pretty awful in pixel-doubled mode, and pretty tiny in 1X mode. I'm sure you will want to enhance Tap Forms for the iPad, but a simple port would be great in the meantime.

                                          I’ve started on the port to iPad. It will be a while though as I don’t have an iPad yet and I want to test it out on the device first. It’s not available in Canada just yet.

                                          TapForms permits grouping by several field types (text, number, contact), but not by date, which is essential for many things I intend to track with TapForms
