The Art of Wufoo Form Creation
Particletree not only are the creators of the e-magazine for web designers and developers called; Treehouse Magazine. They’re now in the development stages of creating an easy to use service for everyone in creating a fine form for their websites.
As a web designer I can refer closely to the times when I wish I was more of a programmer especially when I couldn’t create simple things like contact forms on my own. Contact forms or forms in general have become more than a page you fill up details and submit them. It’s become one of the crucial elements to get in touch with the owner of the website.

The team at Particletree are coming up with a solution so that form creation is made easier and hell a lot more user-friendly. At the time of discovering this at Introducing Wufoo (I know I should’ve blogged about this earlier, sorry.) and still in Beta, the application is driven by Flash and it’s cool.
All the form objects (checkboxes, textareas, and etc.) are represented visually for you to select and after selecting, you’ve got a load more cool things to do. You can review the form objects you’ve selected on ther right. You can add and delete a form object from the right pane. You can also MOVE the object freely above or lower. Editing is done by clicking the pencil icon and you’ll have the customization screen on the left pane later.
The whole interface of Wufoo is simple and clean which are the main criterias in achieving user-friendliness without sacrificing elements in design. The weakness of it I’ve found personally as a new user at the time I tried it was that it didn’t have a How-To or Help section. I refer to this because I missed the rather small ‘Just Click to Add’ at the beginning.
But a little thing such as that wouldn’t contribute even 10% to a problem to the art of Wufoo form creation. So why wait when you can go through a free trial in the art of Wufoo.
