GrandaSoft offers XSDesigner and XSForms as freeware
GrandaSoft released Version 1.0 of XSDesigner and XSForms as freeware. These two programs are used to create XML based forms (XSDesigner) on a PC and then run XML based forms (XSForms) on Pocket PCs.

The company claims this is the fastest and easiest way to collect data with a Pocket PC. The company, a spin off from the German PICA AG, has created an industrial strength solution for capturing data quickly and easily on the fly. Originally, the software was designed for the industry. As the word spread more and more private users too liked the ease of use and speed of keeping punch lists, performing inventories, or simply keeping track of their DVD collection.

The uses are many: surveys at a convention booth or inventory a warehouse, a wine connoisseur on his trip to Italy and keeping track of his favorite wines on his Pocket PC for future shipments; the sales person around the car lot scanning the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) of all cars left on the lot after closing.

The capabilities of XSDesigner and XSForms are many. GrandaSoft already is making further strides into the future for Pocket PCs. The intent is to write their own backend server program that lets you automatically import data from a Pocket PC to a SQL type database for further manipulation.

Both programs are available in English, German, and Spanish. Requests to help translate into more languages have come in for French, Italian, and Portuguese. GrandaSoft will furnish all required files to anyone who wishes to help on the translation project.
