iForm is an application that is designed for processing HTML forms.
What the utility does basically is that it collects data out of forms submitted by an Internet browser. Then it emails the collected data while formatting templates are used to select recipients. The data is also saved as a text log file, which can be imported into a database if needed, since the log file is customizable. The projects included in the JumpStart tutorial can be installed upon choice at the same time with the installation of the utility.

Users can build web based applications that can interact with other scriptable apps like Address Book or Mail. Form submissions can be processed, while response pages, log entries, error notifications and email messages are fully customized. It may take some time to get accustomed to the utility, but it provides useful functions.
