  1. Ability to filter list of data from checkmark field.

    That way "done" items could be filtered out of the list. I could create a Christmas list, and filter for people I still have left to buy for. Something like that.

    • Allow a picklist to auto populate from existing values

      It would be great if a picklist could have a list of all the values the field currently contains in all the existing record with an 'other...' at the top.

      • Release a runtime version

        Come up with a reduced price runtime version that will only allow the user to open and run forms (and import/export), but not design or edit forms. Sell this version for 99 cents to encourage development of specialized TapForms forms. Also have a free AppStore "carrier" app that a developer could use to package their custom form as a separate AppStore application.

        • Auto increment number field, for invoice tracking

          I want to keep track of invoice data using tap forms so when I'm on a Jobsite I could search job specifics, notes from that customer, would be nice to have a auto- incrementing field type so I could enter the invoice number I am on and each time I write up an invoice it would already have the right number when I entered it into tapforms.

          • Change field to read only

            Ability to change a field to read only. This will allow only fields which require data entry to be filled out and prevent pre-loaded data from being amended.

            • add a list function, e.g. Shopping for Birthday's

              If i want to create a shopping or birthday list i need to make one form for each list and then add a record inside for each item. This is annoying as i cannot separate lists. You could add some kind of list field.... i make a general form for my shopping lists, then i add a record for each shopping list... i could have a name field, due date field and so on but also a field where i can add / remove items... I could just use a notes field but that would not be the correct interface.…

              • Allow multiple photos within field & deletion

                Maybe I missed something, but it appears that the photo field will only accept one photo. After you take or chose that one photo (additional retakes will only replace the image), there is no option to delete it.

                • Add the ability to add sub forms

                  When you use the daily journal you it cannot be sorted well in it's current form. Sorted by date you still don't know which came first for multiple entries in one day. Sort by time... Hmmm what date is what, who knows. Sort by title, then it's just a mess. Sub list to add more structure would solve this problem. I'm sure you're familiar with the Storeit app. It has this functionality, but lacks flexibilty once you create a database. With this ability added to your app you will be hands down the best. Then we can talk about adding…

                    • nested picklist

                      Nested pick lists could an interesting concept. You can link 2 pick lists together to define parent-child relationship. So when you pick a value from a parent pick list, the child pick list is limited to a subset of its values. So every time you add a new value to a parent pick list, you have to define a corresponding subset in the child. The parent-child relationship is confined to a specific form. Unless you are using this form, the pick lists look like normal pick lists.

                      • Encryption

                        Unless I'm mistaken, Tapforms doesn't encrypt its DB on the iPhone. With so much personal info, it's imperative that it does. A simple pass-code isn't sufficient, especially since a "found" iPhone can be jailbroken.

                        • make the app more compatible with landscape mode.

                          When you rotate the iPhone not all of the functions work well, the background stays the portrait width and it generally needs a tidy up.

                          • Conditional fields

                            Conditional fields would be nice. Let’s say I have a checkbox and if checked, then additional fields appear for filling in.

                            Another example: I have a database of clients with their billing addresses. But if their physical address is different, I have to list that as well, but not all of them have this, so it would be nice if those fields only appeared when (for instance) the “different physical address” checkbox was checked. This is also nice as you do not have a bunch of extra fields blank when printing.

                              • Provide a report ability.

                                A crucial factor for any data base management is retrieval of information in a user selectable format, called reporting or list views. I like this app very much, but I find no function that allows me view a data list of specific fields within a file. This would be very useful.

                                    It would be great to have an ability to create an iPhone contact from within TapForms. Basically if you have a record with all the information required, by a click of a button it will create an iPhone contact.

                                        • Add a new List Field Type

                                          In selecting the List Field Type give the user the ability to enter a list of entries.
                                          And when creating the new record those entries popup in the Wheel.
                                          This is different from the one suggested above in that I don't want the WHeel to come up on Text Field Types. I just want the Wheel to come up only for List Field Type.

                                            This is definitely planned. We just simply started by allowing the value from the Pick List to be copied into the Text Field type. Once we release version 1.5, we will start to add some of these other field types, including a List Field Type. Thanks again!
