New Wufoo Features

Most of you probably know I’m a big fan of Wufoo, the web service for building forms. (If you don’t, I have an intro video here). In the last few weeks they have rolled out a bunch of new awesome features. They’ve added Likerts (you know, “Strongly Agree, No Opinion, Mildly Disagree…”). They’ve made it easy to add fill-in-the-blank “Other” fields to multiple choice questions, and they’ve seriously upgraded their hardware. Go Wufoo!
