Ask DN: Framer JS vs. Google Form

almost 6 years ago from , UI Designer @ Glide

I use Framer JS and I can easily achieve my goal / vision pretty quickly.

I've seen screenshots of Google Form and it looks like tangled spaghetti.

Does anybody have experience with Form and what is your experience? Is it easy to use? Does it just look harder than it actually is?

Thanks.

    I haven't used Form. It looks interesting, but with no Android support it's a total non-starter for me and my shop. We need cross-platform, period. So even though it's pricey by comparison, Framer wins for us. Framer's whole approach seems more simplified, in a good way.

      Didn't think of that: Android. Most of my design work is in Android. But Google = Android so I imagine they'll add it soon. Yes - Framer is a bit more pricey.

      But you can use the open source version without the studio if i'm not mistaken.

        Google purchased Form from RelativeWave somewhat recently, and it does say in their support forums that they're "considering" adding Android support to the studio in 2015. I hope they actually do it.

    Apples and oranges.

      Really!? I didn't think so. they both let the designer create & prototype interactions... the approaches (code vs. node-based) are different but the goal is the same, no?

      In what way do you think they are apples and oranges?
