Creating long/large forms in iOS


I’m working on an app that will contain multiple long forms on an iPad.

I’ve prototyped a few things out, and my only real question is what’s the best way to layout the app in storyboard - specifically, should I just go about manually laying it all out with auto-layout in a scrollview? This is an iPad app only so that makes it a bit easier, but it feels weird just statically laying all this out.

I thought about using HTML forms in a UIWebView, but it kind of feels gross having to write javascript for the button behaviors, so I haven’t seriously entertained that option.

Any tips?

Here’s a screenshot of a small section of it to give you some context:

Try to group like objects into subviews because they will make it easier to lay out everything or respond to layout changes.
