Keeping my eye on GravityPDF
I found GravityPDF today, thanks to a tweet from David Bisset. Pro tip, David is full of interesting twittering. The plugin and service combination makes it possible to create downloadable PDFs based on Gravity Forms entries. And it looks pretty slick. I filled out a couple of sample forms to test it, and it’s also in active development on Github.
But what also interests me — in addition to the product itself, which I think has a great deal of potential value — is the model. It’s a combination model, but primarily is a service. You have to request a quote for the specific form you wish to make compatible for PDF creation. The previous linked conversation on Twitter between David, Gravity Forms co-founder Carl Hancock, and a few others is worth reading under this context.
Interestingly, there is also a Formidable Pro version of the tool by the same developer, but they are seeking a new owner. I presume they either want to stay focused on Gravity Forms if its responsible for a majority of the revenue, but I don’t know. Either way, if you’re looking to pick up a plugin, that may interest you.
