I am happy to announce the first beta version of the new FormCraft – almost a month ahead of schedule. If you had signed up for beta access, you would have received an email by now.
If you didn’t signup, but would like to use the beta anyways, shoot me an email – nish at ncrafts dot net.
FormCraft for WordPress was first released in August, 2013 – it’s been over one-year-and-half since. I launched FormCraft 2.0 in June, 2014. It introduced new features, but it wasn’t path-breaking.

Too many things to fix. Needless to say, there are performance issues as well. It’s sad to see customers suffer. It’s time to move on.
At first look, flat design always look appeasing, because it can be easily processed by your brain. Color and space are pretty much the only thing separating the elements. Skeuomorphism, however, requires your brain to process a lot more information: color, space, shades, contour, shadow, etc …
