Best form extension . Unfortunately version 6 is limited on localhost and can't register it to use locally and I develop on localhost.
Ease of use
Steep learning curve but it's expected with such an advanced extension.
Good but sometime a little dismissive. Overall trustworthy.
Mostly relies on a book written for v3 but online help available at forum.
I do not have complicated needs, but ChronoForms handled typical needs for web forms - including ability to set visitor email as reply-to.
Ease of use
Look through the demo forms (included in the extension), find YouTube videos no later than 2015. You'll figure it out pretty quickly.
I'm a subscriber, yet I still cannot post a message to the forum. Sent an email another way within 2 hours; awaiting a response.
Look for the Starter Guide on their site. PLEASE make current, official video tutorials on YouTube often, as needed.
Works perfectly and has many functionalities
Ease of use
As it has quite some functionalities, you need to find your way. But once you understand how it works, it's easy to use.
Excellent support!! I got feedback within a couple of hours. Superfast & friendly mails and fixed. If every support was as good as this :-)
I used this to: Forms on my website.

Top quality product!

Abiliy to export / import forms is invaluable! You can keep testing all you want, then move the form to a clean production site.
Ease of use
My first ever attempt at a webform, a really complex one. Intuitive "GUI" popped out ahead of the competition within 15 minutes of testing.
Got my reply on the following day. Clear, concise, straight with a code example, so I solved my problem in the first try.
An example how it everyone should be doing it: lots of info, combined with working examples and answers to other people's questions.
I used this to: I am an android developer. My customers can specify details about their app (name, logo, configuration details..), save partial form (backend database) and come back to finish later. But I can start working on the partial data. This saves a lot of repetitive back-and-forth emails

Nice Component!

Posted on 14 November 2016
Seems good to me
Ease of use
I don't really know what I'm doing and I made it work. The new version seems to have gotten easier too...
Great support! They seem to go above an beyond here
There are a fair amount of answers already out there (questions asked by other people) and some useful faqs.
I used this to: forms for my training database

Great Component

Posted on 05 September 2016
Great Component, used it many times. Easy to use and functional. I especially like the option to connect entries to desired db table.
Ease of use
As easy as it gets!
Very Good!
Considering forum answers and written documentation, I find it satisfactory.
I used this to: Almost every joomla project I worked on.

almost unusble

Posted on 17 July 2016
the component is functional and required almost no configruation, but could not make a form using the site CSS
Ease of use
the interface is quite complicated, the steps are not consequential and some test and trial are required
Could not have an answer from support. so I'm giving up and uninstalling.
almost non existent
I used this to: nothing at all
Very functional and configurable.
Ease of use
Fairly intuitive. However, it would be nice if there were a comprehensive guide or manual, instead of just FAQ's and tutorials.
Always quick to respond
See Ease of Use. A comprehensive guide or manual would be nice.
I used this to: I use it for just about every project.
Many issues on both captcha and smtp email sending as well. Quite odd behaviour in many times and issues that simply isn't possible to overc
Ease of use
Not easy to setup, with many tricky beats and some bugs as well.
Now here is the frustrating part. After some days of several emails of my part, no answer on the other side to solve my issues.
It really didn't help with my issues.
I used this to: Making 2 basic forms for my site.
Does everything a form should do and a lot more than this. Possibilities are almost limitless if you are ready to learn some coding.
Ease of use
I would not say this is the easiest form plugin, but it is definitely the one you'll end up coming back to.
Had some big issues with my server and captcha forms. Support was OK, but not always very clear for coding beginers.
FAQs and forums will help, but they could be more extensive (especially with V5).
