    Forms for smart phones

    Hi,

    We have several long forms, with security captcha, required fields, etc..., on our site. They are php based and return the results via e-mail. A lot of people are trying to fill them out on their smart phones and running in to trouble with either not being able to see all the fields easily or captcha issues. Just a general pain filling them out on a phone I suspect. While I would prefer that they just use a regular PC I can see that using smart phones and tablets is the wave of the future so to speak.

    Question: What can be done to make the forms more smart phone friendly? Is an app the only answer, I hope not as we really don't want to spend that kind of money on this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Using app for smart phone will work fine .If you use other methods to fill out some times captcha and words may not be come correctly.And it tends your user to get irritate.
