What is the proper way to code your forms so they are mobile friendly? For example, I want my form to display without having to pinch and zoom the mobile browser.

I would like big round input areas like most apps have. Right now my input areas are in horizontal mode, should I make them vertical? Will that even help?

See here for example: http://www.reapercrewhats.com/contact.htm

Thanks!

Yes, vertically stacking the questions will help. Additionally, I would play with shrinking the font sizes and text boxes sizes while testing on a phone to see what seems to work well.

Now wouldn't shrinking the fonts and text also shrink them on the desktop as well and it will be hard to read them?

Yes. In a perfect world you would build separate forms for desktops and phones, and build in some Javascript detection to direct the user to the proper form based on the type of device they are using.
