Unlike Google Sheets and Google Docs, there is no mobile app for Google Forms. You can use Formotus instead for enterprise-grade data collection forms in apps that work offline and connect online to your Google account.

Formotus mobile apps are better than Google Forms for business workflows. Formotus integrates with Google Sheets and Google Drive so you can see your form submissions as rows in a spreadsheet and open your form docs from folders. Formotus forms run in mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows devices. Formotus includes a cloud-based builder for customizable dynamic forms with conditional logic and rich controls such as signatures and photos.

Google forms for education and surveys

If you’re using G Suite or Google Apps (Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Drive) for your business, you may think about using Google Forms as well. But when you investigate Google Forms for your business needs, you may notice the prominence of classroom (not business) scenarios. Google forms and add-ons seem to be optimized for teachers collecting responses to quizzes, creating tutorials for students, gathering survey results in spreadsheets, displaying graphs, etc. Common business forms for use in the field — inspections, work orders, invoices, expense reports, etc. — are clearly much less the focus in Google Forms.

The ability to stay productive without internet is not an afterthought at Formotus. It’s in the DNA of our offline-first app design. Our forms run in mobile apps that include rich controls for signatures, photos, diagrams, barcodes, GPS coordinates and more. And not only is forms data submitted to Google Sheets for analysis, but form documents are also stored in Google Drive folders as PDF files for archiving and as XML files that can be re-opened, edited and re-submitted.
