Difference between gravity forms and gravity view plugin

Gravity forms is most popular and probably the best plugin for creating advanced forms for the WordPress website. It’s easily configurable, powerful, and easy to use. Gravity forms only work in the back end and only helps to get the forms build up and collect the data and store them on the server but it doesn’t do any thing regarding showing the data filled in the forms, on the website in the posts or in a page. This gap of displaying the data on the website is filled by this plugin – it takes the gravity forms data and then display it on the website using one of the pre-defined templates. The templates allows the user to use the data into things like: staff profiles, resumes, events list, and more. Also, in gravity view you can create the forms as well, you don’t need the gravity forms for the form builder then. GravityView – My Pal Floaty from Zack Katz on Vimeo.
