Better than before but still needs work

First off, I love that someone/several someone's are working on this!

Still the iApp needs to be able to:
(1) upload forms using a weblink or the ability to design forms within the app - can someone add
(2) a function to share the data collected with other devices without overwriting other existing datasets
