It’ll take some practice to truly figure out Nexticy but once you do, you’ll realize it’s a very useful tool for those in many different forms of business. Its flexibility is quite impressive.
It’s a form building tool. At its simplest, you can use one of many templates to get started. There are templates for all kinds of situations, such as a nutritional log, invoicing, meeting report, quiz, and even a professional resume tool. For many, a great starting point is to use one of these and edit it to your needs rather than start from scratch. This is especially true when bearing in mind that the app could do a better job of explaining things. Experimentation is key here.
Whether you’re making something new or editing something existing, the tools are mostly the same. There are options for text boxes, input fields, check boxes, dropdown lists, and many more. Each is used by dragging them onto the form, so it’s quite an intuitive system. You can import images or use a PDF as a background too, adding to what can be accomplished.
It’s then simple enough to save the created template to your iPad or upload them to Dropbox, as well as opt to get users to complete their responses elsewhere. That’s where Nexticy truly shines through - in its flexibility. You can easily get people to fill in their responses, even on a desktop PC, without being restricted to the original iPad. There’s a price involved with a subscription service for anything more than 50 responses and 3 forms, but it’s sure to be ideal for the more advanced business owner or researcher.
For those simply wanting to organize their life better or gather a few responses, the free version of Nexticy does so easily and conveniently. It’s the kind of thing you’d expect to pay more for, such is its variety of options.
