Gravity Forms is the most interesting add-on for WordPress you can use to extend your data management. From contact form to complex, multi step forms with calculations and validations: Gravity Forms will provide you a solid base for creating the forms your need for your project or website. They are providing also a solid base for other add-on developers by sticking to their main task: providing only form fields that are necessary and will help you in whatever process you want to organize afterwards.
