  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • Add another view under Favorites for Forms

          It’s good that I can simply click on a record in my Favorites to open it up. But I would like to click on a Form in my Favorites to open the list of records.
          When you have created 20+ Forms it gets pretty challenging scrolling through the list to find it.
          So, why not create two sections (or two views) under Favorites. Simply create two icons at the top right that will switch between favorites for Records and favorites for Forms. By default have it list Records when you open Favorites. Make it similar to how you did Search.…

          • Ability to import new form icons and delete them

            I would like to be able to import new form icons based on the size that your using.
            So, if its 32x32 for example I would like to import it and be able to use it for the new custom forms I create.
            And also give the ability to delete the icons that I import.
            You can lock the core form icons down so that no one can delete them. But the ones you import you can allow them to be deleted.
            So, you'll have two form icons. Default Form Icons and Custom Form Icons that's imported.
            The default cannot…

              This is a good idea. For now however, you can use the built-in camera on an iPhone to take a photo that you’d like to use as a Form icon. iPod touch and iPhone users can also select a photo from the photo library to use as a Form icon.

            • to be able to look up info from Amazon from your title

              If your making an inventory of things in your home, to be able to get the info and price from Amazon on the product. i.e if you had a DVD just enter the title or take a photo of the bar code and it would look it up at Amazon and paste the info in for you. This may have to be done on a desktop version.

              • Provide two options to viewing Forms on the main page

                1. By collapsible and expandable categories
                2. By category folders that you enter (clicking on it) and exit (clicking on the back button)

                  • Relocate the options at the end of “Edit Record”

                    When clicking on a record it takes you to the “Edit Record”.
                    But if you scroll down to the end you’ll notice “Add to Favorites” and "Customize Form”
                    Why not move them into the planned Action icon in 1.5. Take them out of here to free up space and leave it just for viewing the record. I have clicked on the “add to favorites” accidentally so many times. I would be nice to move those two options into the Action icon. So, clicking on the Action icon you’ll have another two options “Add Record to Favorites” and “Customize this Form”

                      Hmm… The only problem I see with this is the new Action menu already has the following in it: Delete Record, New Record, Duplicate Record, Email Record, and Import Records. Theoretically given the amount of space I have left, I could add one more option. I’ll see what I can do.

                      Thanks!

                      • Number of records displayed in Form View should be iconic

                        On the form view page you have a number with parenthesis around it that display the number of records in that form. Can you change it to look more like Mail (built in) or Todo.
                        It looks around and reversed colored gray with a number in it.

                          Ya, I had thought about doing it this way, but it was a bit quicker doing it the way I did. But I will look into this way as I know a lot of other programs display their counts this way.

                          • Add a new Priority Field

                            When you add this Field Type to your form you enter the maximum priority number.
                            In creating the record the Priority Bar appears thats a slider you drag left to right. While you drag the bar you can see the priority field change from 1 to the max value you defined.

                                • Little bit smaller icons

                                  I measured your icons size and noticed its little bit larger than the average size used out there across different applications. Can you make it little bit smaller. Not sure how many pixels smaller it should be. Maybe 4 or 5 pixels.
                                  For example, if you click on the ipod touch Settings you'll see the icons for Wi-Fi, General, Music, Video and so forth. Most applications use that size. Can you use that size as well. It looks much better in that size.

                                      I think this is too much work for you. At the rate your going we won't get all what we want after 10 years.

                                      How about making it open source and share your code with the rest of us. That way we can help you work faster and contribute to your success and our happiness.
                                      :)

                                        Well, the tricky part is how do I earn a living open sourcing Tap Forms? Not sure how that would work as anyone would be able to just download the code, compile it and run it.

                                      • Don't see your idea?
