Filling up forms is one of the widely done activities on the Internet. Be it for contact management, Registration forms, Surveys, Application Forms or Personal Inventories; forms are a must. However, in order to create effective forms and to store the data submitted using the forms, you need to be pretty good with the programming part of Form creation and submission. This problem can however be addressed by using services like Icebrrg and Wufoo. I wrote about Wufoo earlier in my post [Web Forms] Build Amazing Online Forms With Wufoo.

Icebrrg is a free to use, online service which lets you generate wide variety of embeddable forms for use online. With the free account you can get upto 3 forms with 10 fields. If you don’t own a website and would like Icebrrg to host it, that too is provided.
