Exclusive: Freeform 4 and Freeform Pro

EE Insider has an exclusive announcement of a big update to Freeform by Solspace. Watch the video to learn all about it:

Starting today Freeform 4 and their brand new Freeform Pro are both available.

Freeform 4 is a big update to the last version. Solspace rewrote Freeform completely and revamped the interface. Freeform Pro is the Freeform you love but with a lot of extra stuff built in. First, there are more field types available in Freeform Pro. Second, there’s the Composer. The Composer lets you create your forms inside of the Control Panel. As you can see in the video, I just dropped in one line of code and the form appears.

Freeform 4 is still free for everyone. Freeform Pro costs $79.95 per site license.

I’ve been using Freeform 4 and Freeform Pro a lot over the last few weeks. It’s a big, big update from previous versions. I hope you give it a try.

Solspace worked with EE Insider and Mijingo to put together the video, let me test a beta version of the add-on and gave me the opportunity to be the first to announce it.

Looks great! Can’t wait to try the Pro version!

Hope you find some time and write an extensive review of the new freeform pro and devdemon’s product smile

There doesn’t appear to be any mention of Freeform 4, only Freeform Pro. Can you tell me the difference because their own website doesn’t appear to..

Is it difficult to add styles e.g. bootstrap styles to freeform fields?

Mark Bowen03:45 on 07.31.2012

Looks like Freeform Pro comes with extra fieldtypes as well as the composer. Video above mentions that.

Of course there may be other items too so yes it would be nice to have a complete side-by-side comparison of the two.

Looks like Solspace blocked EE Insider from embedding their videos. But anyway, their prices are always a turn off when adding it on top of the costs of other addons. We’ll see if Low would release a more ‘economic’ version. (DevDemon already do)

James, I’m hosting that video and it was a mistake on my part when I updated the embed permissions for it. Thanks for the heads up!

Simon17:00 on 09.26.2012

Video is not working! I’m trying to decide on FreeFrom or DevDmon’s Forms product so it would be great if you can fix this soon.

Steven Hambleton19:40 on 09.26.2012

We like Proforms. Great support and very flexible!

So does can FreeForm 4 or FreeForm Pro update channels, categories, etc?
