Last week on Web.Appstorm we looked at Typeform, an app for creating forms. Forms are key to great user communication about everything from how your site should be structured to where you should be focusing your work. Typeform has completely reinvented the way online forms work, making the process of filling in forms fun.

David Okuniev is the product leader at Typeform, and has kindly given his time to talk to us. In this interview, David discusses the origins of Typeform as well as looking at what the future may hold for their team. Read on to see our conversation and learn how Typeform really came to be what it is today. Also, we’ve got some Typeform invites, so if you’d like to get one, keep reading to see how you can be one of the first to try it out.


Customer support can be an incredibly tricky thing to get right. You need to be quick enough to respond to your customers – or potential customers – while being efficient enough that providing support doesn’t bankrupt your business. Just keeping up with all the emails, and keeping everyone’s issues straight, is enough to make it difficult.

However, users don’t just send you feedback by email anymore. Your feedback is bound to be coming in from email, Twitter, Facebook, and that is the confusing part. Messages are coming in from a variety of sources and you need to check each one individually — an arduous task for the majority of us.

Reamaze is an app which aims to re-invent tech support and help you on your way. This is a new customer support platform which collects everything which has been sent to your site – no matter how it’s been sent. It processes this data and shows it to you in one easy-to-understand format. Let’s take a look.


Most of us have a lot we need to do each day. We need a way to record everything that needs to be done, and be reminded with our tasks are due. In the past, people would have used a diary or a notepad, but nowadays we need something more sophisticated to keep up with our bustling lives.

For a while now, I have been looking for the best app for this, and while there’s many nice ones, I never could find the perfect app for me. That is, until a few weeks ago I discovered Cloudship, an app which looked as good as it performed — for me this was the perfect application.

Two weeks on and I’m using Cloudship everyday to manage and organize my everyday life. Read on to find out where Cloudship can fit into your everyday life.


eBook reading apps have become very popular since the introduction of the tablet, and have transformed our devices into a personal library wherever you go. It started with the Kindle device, but since then, there’s hardly a mobile device that doesn’t come with an eBook reading app. For me, I have never seen the appeal of eBooks, and I prefer to have a physical book in my hands. However, there is a division of eBooks which have recently taken my interest — eTextbooks.

Being a student, textbooks are something which I need to carry at all times and use everyday for support in lectures and revision sessions. Carrying around tons of heavy books isn’t what I want to do. With access to the internet everywhere, eTextbooks allow me to quickly get on the web and view my specific books quick and easy.

In this article I’m going to look at the best three textbooks apps available on the web: Chegg, CourseSmart and NOOK Study. Read on to find out the possibilities with these three apps.


Running a website which is making money is hard. While trying to manage products, prices and profit you also need to look at specific orders which are going to be most beneficial towards your business’ revenue. However, normal forms seem to only allow customers to tell you small amounts of information.

Expanding this form further and giving customers the ability to personalize their needs to you would be something which is highly beneficial. This in turn would allow you to prioritize these certain customers and maximize your profit. Convertable is a web app which achieves this difficult task in a simple and reasonably priced package.
