Google Forms Gets Templates, Add-on Support and More

From TechCrunch by Frederic Lardinois (@fredericl):

“With today’s release, you can now select from a number of templates for standard surveys like customer feedback, quizzes and event sign-up right from the Google Forms home screen. Until now, forms dropped you right into the editor when you started a new form, but you always had to start from scratch. These new templates should make it quite a bit easier to get started with the service.”
