Google Forms vs Typeform
Round 1: Pricing
Winner: Google Forms!
Well, you can’t really beat free for pricing. Typeform have a free basic version and an exceedingly reasonably priced Pro version.
Round 2: Features
|Own Domain Links||y||y|
|Save & Resume|
|Actions & Notifications||y||y|
|A/B Split Testing|
|Pay for Selected Responses|
|Optimized for Mobile||y||BEST|
Google Forms has some great features available for a free program, but the advanced ones really need some scripting experience to set up. Typeform’s basic free version already contains logic and piping, and the Pro version is the best in the category for customizable templates and making your survey fit your company branding. You can also accept payment directly through your forms.
Round 3: Integrations
|Customer Relationship Management (Salesforce)|
You can access the Google Forms API yourself for custom development, but you can only integrate with other Google Aps or with other programs through Zapier. Typeform integrates with lots of programs through Zapier, but only payment processors directly.
Round 4: Language support
|No Language Support||24 Languages with Default Translation|
Google Forms currently does not support more than one language being displayed in you forms, though there are third-party apps that can be added as a workaround. Typeform offers translations of standard messages, questions, and errors in 24 languages.
The battle score
Overall Winner: Typeform!
But you might prefer Google Forms if:
- You have a low budget
- You have scripting experience
- You don’t mind a steep learning curve to get cheap and powerful features
