YOUR LIFE. ORGANIZED.
Using Tap Forms
Tap Forms is a fully customizable, easy to use database application. It leverages many of the iPhone’s built
in features, and has a similar look and feel as many of the common iPhone apps, such as photos, maps,
contacts, browsers, etc. The beauty is that Tap Forms ties them all together using Forms as the main user
Forms are the templates that are used to store all the data you need while
you’re on the go. They are easily customized to ﬁt your lifestyle and needs.
Tap Forms ships with over 25 built-in forms, which you can use as is, duplicate
and edit it as needed, or simply create your own new forms from scratch.
Forms have a few key features, along with your ﬁelds which contain your data.
Icon – to indicate the type of form
Title – what you see in the list of forms
Category – a grouping feature to help organize your forms
Sort & Group – a way to organize the data inside your forms
Hide Form – nice for Link to Field forms (more later)
Fields – your data!
Icons are used to indicate the type of form being used, or as a simple reminder for a speciﬁc type of data.
There are over 175 icons included to give your forms a unique identiﬁer. See appendix. You can also choose
a photo from your photo library or use the camera to take a photo to be used as an icon.
Each form has Title which serves as a way to help you identify the data stored in the form.
Your forms are divided into Categories for organization purposes. There are 4 categories by default, and you
can easily edit or create new categories as needed. Tap the Tools icon and select Categories to modify or
create new categories for your forms. You can also drag categories up and down to re-order them.
Sorting and Grouping allow for a way to arrange your data, such as; Group by city and sort by last name.
Hide Form is a way to remove forms from the main view, if not needed, i.e. for linked forms, where you do
not want to see the child form.
