Ratings and Reviews
I’ve used this for years and it was originally fantastic. But it’s nothing but glitches now and the creator won’t fix it because he got greedy and sold out for a new, expensive app with a worse interface than the original. I’ve contacted him several times looking for the original to be fixed so I could keep using it, and he just won’t do it and keeps trying to sell me the new one which I’ve already told him I tried and supremely disliked. Bottom line, don’t waste your time on any of his apps, he just abandons them and then tries to get you to spend more money on newer, inferior products.
Developer Response ,
Hi Ghashlycrumbs. I'm very sorry you feel this way about Tap Forms. I've been constantly developing Tap Forms for 10 years now. True, the older version 4 of Tap Forms that you're using is no longer being updated. The newer operating system versions require me to keep up with the changes there. The old version uses code that has been deprecated for years now that would require a big overhaul to allow it to be updated to support the newer iOS versions. I asked you via email what the issues were with Tap Forms 5 and that maybe I could work on improving them for you, but you wouldn't give me any details. You just said it was not as good as the old version and didn't provide any any specifics. How am I supposed to change what you don't like if you don't tell me what that is? The feature requests and feedback that I receive from Tap Forms customers is what drives my development. The majority of the Tap Forms 5 interface is much like version 4, but there were new additions that I made such as multiple database document support, the new Photo Grid and Multi-Column List Views, multiple photo support, etc. I'm also currently busy on version 5.3 which will be available when iOS 12 ships. So if there's anything specific that you're not happy with in Tap Forms 5, I'd be happy to take a look into it to see if there's ways I can make it better for everyone. Thanks! -- Brendan
No Problems Here
I don't understand why this app is getting such bad reviews. I'm using version 4.0.7 and have no problems. I have not opted to upgrade to version 5, so I guess that's the difference where the others are having difficulties. I have given this app glowing reviews in years past and have used it regularly ever since in my business for customer scheduling. I sync an iPhone and three different generations of iPads at the same time without issue.
I came here to check out what this version 5 was all about; and though I will wait to upgrade, I believe the developer will work hard to correct any issue the feedback reveals.
As far as the folks calling the developer "greedy" for charging $16 for their work product, I can only assume they've never been an entrepreneur. There is nothing wrong with charging for a product, work performed or a service. That's how most people are paid! Grow up already. Give up a couple of those $6 cups of coffee and call it even. 😑
Self sabotage guts a formerly great app
This was a great app that I used for several years. In 2016 the developer decided to change syncing methods. I've tried to adapt to the new syncing method three separate times without success. That's my limit. I'm deleting the app. Now I hope to find another form app with iCloud and/or Dropbox syncing that works half as well as this one does. What a waste. :-/
