Have you checked out Adobe's new cloud service - FormsCentral?

https://formscentral.acrobat.com/app.html

It is an easy to use, drag and drop for fill and submit forms. It seems to make it very, very easy to amend the built-in templates, deploy the form to your audience and then analysis the responses.

As far as I can see, it currently does not allows scripting. Since it is not pitched as an advanced development tool requiring programming skills, I doubt if it will ever have scripting ability. So things like calculations, dynamic changes are out. However for a "fill and submit" type form it certainly fills a gap.

I tested it yesterday.

It's simple to use and has enough features for basic surveys or such things.

Very end-user-friendly, but currently only available in english.

Wie schade!

Hopefully it will be extended soon.

One positive, is that the online forms can also be accessed, completed, and submitted from an iPhone. I wasn't expecting that given the Flash issues; however total inclusion - result!

The aspect it is accessible from mobile devices is really a benefit of FormsCentral.

If they will provide an api this can be very popular I think.
