Personalization of form layout
- Ability to format controls for Mobile App forms (eg. bold font, colour of font, size of font).
- Ability to insert Logo / images.
- Ability to have popup alerts, custom validation rules.
It would good if images could be stored within the form rather than a link to a publicly available image. Firstly, we don't want to put all our images in the public domain and secondly, Nintex Forms is designed to be usable offline, therefore having to have access to the internet to load up images is not desirable.

There are some good points in this thread. We're looking into introducing custom theming for fonts and colours into Nintex Mobile Enterprise as the purpose of this product is to create custom apps so it make sense to include these capabilities there.
With regards to @Sjoerd de Valk points about the forms themselves, I think that there are a few inconsistences across the platforms that we should address. We'll look into this for you.
- Ability to adapt the size of the control to the size of the content ("resize at runtime").
Absolutely agree with @Sjoerd de Valk.
It is very important to have the ability to format controls for Mobile App forms (eg. bold font, color of font, size of font) and not only for some control but for all of them (today, it is not possible to have bold on calculated control instead of label for example).
About the custom validation, sometime the result is ok for some device (Android for example) and sometimes not (Windows for example et in some case, application crashes).
All devices must have the same functionality and run identically.

Even though images are support, styling them is not. For instance I always get a border around my header image in Nintex Mobile on Windows 8.1 (no matter how much css is used). The border is not visible on Nintex Mobile on Windows Phone 8.1 and is also not visible in the browser/desktop/smartphone layout. My customer branding is somewhat lost in the Nintex Mobile Apps department. It would be nice to have the formatting of controls and css workfing and working consistantly in the NMA
Second thing I noticed, although it seems that default validation rules configured on a Nintex Form are supported in Nintex Mobile, sometimes they just don't fire and when they fail there is no way of getting them to work again. So the stability of existing 'normal' validation rules on controls in Nintex Mobile could be improved upon. (NFO365 184.108.40.206, NMA 220.127.116.11)

All good points, current support for text format can be improved. Can you give me some use cases where this level of formatting is required?
Btw, images are already supported.
