In iOS, it's simple to create a pdf, but you cannot create pdfs that have form variables or form widgets in them for the user to fill out (or partially fill out).
This is a major flow holding back use of Acrobat forms in iPads and iPhones.
Is there a Forms SDK that Adobe produces or plans to produce to address this issue (creation of forms in iOS)?
It would be awesome for us developers to be able to license an Adobe SDK that provided:
- full creation of form based pdfs in iOS
- display and filling in of such pdfs
We don't have a solution to create PDF forms on iOS but the current version of the Reader mobile for iOS does support filling out PDF forms. The version of the mobile Reader coming out in a few weeks will also support FormsCentral created PDF forms (you can submit them to FormsCentral)
