Wufoo takes these specs and automatically publishes the form on the web, taking care of collecting the replies and presenting them to the form’s author in various formats.

Because Wufoo hosts everything, all that’s needed is a browser, an Internet connection and a few minutes to build a form and start using it right away.

Wufoo’s tiered monthly plans range from $14.95/month to $199.95/month and the prices are based on the number of forms, the number of entries that can be submitted per month, the amount of disk space used for handling files and various other factors. There’s also a free version available, with limited capabilities.

In April 2011 Wufoo signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by SurveyMonkey, its main competitor at that time. According to the merger agreement both services will continue to operate and the forms will continue to function as before. Since then, Wufoo’s traffic seems to be on an upward trend according to Compete; it seems the merger was successful for all the parties involved.
