Typeform Overview

With the Typeform API, you can easily create beautiful, interactive forms that
allow people to share their information with you in an engaging way. Here are
some examples of what you can build with the Typeform API:

  • A contact form for your website that allows people to easily get in touch
    with you
  • An order form for your product or service that allows people to place orders
    easily and securely
  • A survey form that allows you to collect data and feedback from people
  • A registration form for your event or conference that allows people to sign
    up easily and securely
