You should look at this FAQ if you haven't already:
FormsCentral is a cloud service and only available as a subscription.
Acrobat Pro contains a small subset of the FormsCentral functionality (it can only create PDF forms using our desktop authoring app). All other functionality requires you to connect to the online service.
FormsCentral pricing can be found here:
We also offer team pricing (5-pack, 10-pack, 20-pack)
In case it's not clear, with Acrobat you can create PDF forms without using the FormsCentral desktop app. Such forms can in many ways be more flexible than the ones you can create with the FormsCentral app yet they can still be distributed via FormsCentral. When a form is submitted, it is the form data that gets transmitted and stored, as opposed to the entire PDF. An important consideration is the nature of the data that you will be collecting. If your data collection system needs to be HIPAA compliant, you will likely have to use something other than FormsCentral.
So if I have acrobat, that only allows me to make forms but does not give access to the web based distribution/response collection of formscentral? Do I then have to pay for a subscription in addition to owning the acrobat program?
