Featured Work App
ProntoForms has been named a "Featured Work App" in the Google Play Store. This comes after a stringent review process by Google, recognizing the quality and usability of the ProntoForms app for Android.

After logging in to the app, mobile users will land on the new Home screen. Forms, Inbox, Sent/Outbox and Drafts can be accessed directly from here.
The Outbox and Sent listings have been combined. If users are working offline, an "Outgoing" header will appear in the Sent screen to hold all forms that are waiting to be sent. If the Sent screen is disabled, it will be replaced on the home screen by an Outbox.
To return to the home screen from any of the listing screens, use the side navigation menu and select Home.
The "refresh button" on the top right of the screen is used to reconcile. The ProntoForms App Settings are accessed by tapping the gear icon at the top right of the home screen.
Custom branding will be displayed at the top of the home page at a larger size in the updated app.
If you are using existing custom branding at 192x192px, your logo may appear pixelated. You may upload a new, larger logo in the web portal.
The ideal size for the banner logo uploaded to the web portal is 1200px by 400px.
Added in ProntoForms for Android 6.6, the app now has an easy-to-find navigation drawer on all screens save the Home screen. Just tap the menu in the top left of the app to view a listing of all the app tabs.
Android 6.8 adds your custom branding to the side navigation drawer for a more personal touch.
We've improved in-form navigation, making it familiar to cross-platform users. Use familiar swipe gestures to change pages, or tap the icons at the top of the page.
When interacting with a geolocation control type, you can select "Map" or "Satellite" views to show you where you are on a map. Use it to select your own location, or a site location.
Tap and hold to set down pins on the desired location, and select Done.
