No documentation and a low level help desk.
It's great at first, until they hit you with the shock a YEAR later with an email like below and you have to PAY FOR IT ALL OVER AGAIN!! Rip offs....

Waste of time.
I spent my money to purchase it and it seems a good plugin but a year after I have to pay to have support.
When I ask help or question they reply me that this not possible without paying.
I can ask for a bug but them use me as beta tester and reply me with a question and not to fix a bug.
I have a lot of troubles. This plugin is very slow and spent a lot of seconds of theme charging time. It uses about 30% of plugin loading time and I never received reply about this issue but only questions... remember I have purchased it and I'm not using a free version.
I like it, really.
But the free version does not even let you duplicate your form.
Yes, you can create forms. You can get people to type data into them. But you have to pay to get the pro version in order to see that data. It would've been better if it had a big banner on the front page that told me that rather than letting me waste an hour.
Yea,, just as every one els are saying,, this plugin has nothing to offer because near everything is "paid" for.. No adding any email, date, time, or any other elements.. pretty much sucks you ask me!!
Description is so misleading.
"Save all responses to the database (even in the free version) for future retrieval"
Yes in the free version is does save all responses for future retrieval. But what it doesn't state is that future retrieval requires the purchasing of the pro version.
It doesn't bother me that, you can't do it and that you have to pay, it bothers me that I wasted 30 - 60 minutes setting it all up and setting my forms up as it was all looking promising before I realised I couldn't retrieve responses all because of misleading descriptions.
Totally useless. I'm not going to pay unless you advertise it as a paid plugin... jerks.
Many people have had the same response, and it bears repeating.
Why have a free version if you can't use it? You can install it but you can't see whether it correctly returns entries? Silly. I already saw that Formidable employees try to move the conversation to their site whenever you comment.
Once you get to the site, they tell it's very hard to view entries. Formidable wasn't designed for that.
Frustrating free version that shouldn't be offered at all without proper documentation. I would have even been willing to buy it instead of Gravity, if it worked. You don't have to give away all your bells and whistles, but it should work.
This FREE version is a waste of time. Don't bother.
