Once you launch a new app, what is the very first window you see? What is the-first-impression-maker? Right, a signup form page – a must-have element of any app. 

As we all know, nobody builds a signup form from scratch, and there are special tools specifically designed to simplify signup form creation. Hardly a month goes by without a new, more easy-to-use, more cost-efficient, and template-rich free form generator appearing on the market. So it may be hard to find a proper one from the variety.

We’ve prepared the list of the most popular and pleasant in use signup visual form building tools among the currently available ones.

Some of the signup form creators we’ve listed are good for making simple forms in the short term (Wufoo, Formsite, etc.), the others will fit if you need to build a complex signup form (Cognito Forms, Formstack, and some others). Some of them do not allow you to download the signup form code (Wufoo, Cognito Forms, JotForm, etc.), while the others do not lock you in the platform (UI Bakery SignUp Form Builder).
