Overall, this is a cheap, fast, easy alternative that works for most cases, but it's not super professional in 100% of business applications.

Pros
Google forms is a great option for 90% of my survey and forms needs. It's easy to use and reliable.

Cons
It lacks some of the customization that you get with more expensive paid alternatives like survey monkey and other forms tools. Also, you don't have 100% control over your branding. Customers can see that you're using a Google product.

While not as robust as other solutions, its price point and ease of use make up for these minor shortcomings.

Pros
Compared to expensive survey services, Google Forms is a great solution for quick and easy information gathering. Minimal setup with delivery options for resulting data.

Cons
While it's a great, simple solution, initial setup of sections and logic can be a bit confusing for beginners wishing to utilize some of these features.

I'm actually part of the students council of my career. when ever we need to know what opinion does the rest of the students have or what they want we use a google form and send it to out database. It is more cheap and effortless than printing or doing the surveys manually

Pros
This is the easiest and cheapest way yo make a survey this days. In college we are able to knows everybody opinion just sending a form to the students e-mail. Also it has a lot of layers already made for different occasions like for example confirming your assistance to a event.

Cons
It's necessary to limítate a lot the persons posible answers because if not they can response literal anything.

We need this to get some decisions done and some simple registrations done quickly. This does the job as easy as can be.

Pros
Quick and easy registrations, manageable, easy to share within your team or to others. It's as straightforward as it gets. Cheap. Free.

Cons
It's not as full featured as many other options that specifically are for doing opinion polls and whatnot - you'll have to figure out analytics and stuff yourself.

Overall for less complicated forms that are free this is a good one.

Pros
For less complicated forms this is great. It is also much cheaper. You can send all the the answers to the from to googles spreadsheet.

Cons
You cannot do any branching questions or more complicated forms. It is also more difficult to add a section into it. You have to add at the end and if you have to do that often enough it makes the form more complicated.

Review Source: Capterra

We use it for our clients when we need information from them or when we need feedback from our users and it's a great, cheap and simple way to do so.

Pros
First of all, it is free to use! It's also very user friendly, both in terms of making the form and actually using it. If you're familiar with Google products, this is probably the best way to make an online form.

Cons
There isn't anything that I absolutely hate about Google Forms, it's a very simple and powerful software. If there was one thing I could change though it would be the front-end interface. It is still the same old version of material design and although it is still elegant, it's starting to get old.

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Forms is a very easy to use platform. Within a very short period of time, the user can have a completed poll/survey. As with projects in other Google products, these polls are easy to share and disperse. Additionally, responses from those being polled are immediately visible to the owner of the project, making analytics easy. There are some useful and unique options available for Forms, such as making a survey into a graded quiz.

Cons
Forms lacks visual customization options almost to the point of being crippling. Surveys created through Forms looks cheap- because they are. Font styles are very limited.

Pros
I like that it is free and fairly easy to create forms. These forms can then be integrated with Google Sheets to automatically update a spreadsheet. I even used these forms for a custom RSVP webpage for my wedding. It automatically updated our guest list spreadsheet and worked great.

Cons
I did not like the design of the forms last I checked. They appeared dated. The Google Forms branding also makes the form seem cheap for some applications.

The simple layout is quite comfortable, and the cost of usage which is very affordable makes this a good choice for creating forms online.

Works for what it is if you want a cheap solution to collect information, with the understanding that using it for free means you're paying with your data. It's not a pretty platform per se, but it gets the job done.

Pros
It's a simple, easy to use way to create a form and collect data. It interfaces seamlessly with the other google products and most users that I send a form to are easily able to navigate it and enter their data.

Cons
It's google, so I naturally have privacy concerns and while it makes a simple form easily, they aren't really that pretty.

Pros
Its a really easy to use solution to create surveys. It has some decent level of control on how the users will answer the questions. The data visualization is a powerful tool to see how it worked out in the end, but it lacks some firepower for more advanced surveys.

In general, the user experience is quite good and useful. The only drawback I had is when exporting a large number of records, when they are few I had no problems.

Pros
I like Google forms because it is very easy for everyone to use. The form is a link away for my clients and it is good to have that versatility when I want to share the form. Cheap and useful option to make reviews and collect data.

Cons
What I like least about software is that it is inaccurate when exporting the data. That happened on more than one occasion when I export approx a thousand records, the software put some spaces in the fields and the filters don't work because of that.

While Typeform and other similar apps have been inovating every day, Google Forms seems to have remained in its initial form. Which is not really a bad thing, since it's a great, free tool to have in your arsenal. I've used it professionally and personally and I highly recommend it. Every day I have to create a survey, it's the first tool I have in mind.

Pros
- Free, so can't beat the price - Very easy to work with - Different types of questions, design options, colors, etc.

Cons
- Quite simplistic at types - Not as fully featured or evolved as something like Typeform - Limited design elements
