Design (weighted 12%)
Gravity Forms—like a number of other WordPress form plugins—lets you make forms inside of your WordPress Admin pages and it comes styled to work out of the box with just about any theme.
If you want to tweak the way your form looks you can use the Gravity Forms CSS classes under the advanced field settings. Nevertheless this will require some coding skills so if you don't want to get your hands dirty try the demo first and see if they match with your WP theme.
If you need a form or survey, Wufoo has already created more than 300 templates and themes, arranged on categories like Surveys, Invitations, Registrations, Led Generation, Online Orders or Tracking and tons of subcategories. If you don't find what you are looking for you may create your own template from scratch using the drag and drop editor and some CSS skills.
Features (weighted 12%)

Lots of add-ons are available if you need to integrate payment platforms and other web apps with the builder.
Conditional logic is not at the same level of complexity as in Wufoo so if your planning to create a more complex quiz or survey go with Wufoo.
Gravity Forms allows you to create WordPress posts from user entries or quickly build surveys and reader polls with open-ended text fields, drop down menus, checkboxes, numerical fields, and multiple-choice questions.
Wufoo has all of the features that you would expect from a form builder. Starting with the Bona Fide Plan you'll have access to all the features Wufoo has to offer.
