Keep Infopath alive ! We need rich forms in SharePoint.
We have the tool for that, it just needs a few improvements to become userfriendly (such as automatic name for infopath documents in a Library, easy retrieving for current user properties,...)
As others have said, InfoPath is so much easier and faster to use than PowerApps, especially when combined with the power of SharePoint Designer workflows. Unless you make PowerApps and FLOW much easier to use (and reliable), you need to maintain support for InfoPath and Designer Workflows as many organizations have built critical applications around the use of these two tools.
It takes an enormous amount of effort to transform an existing solution to the newer tools. If Microsoft is "moving the ball forward," it shouldn't take more effort to build a solution using modern tools than it does with tools you are retiring.
I like the conditional formatting ability that Infopath provided, but the tool itself was horrible (it was very buggy, and tweaking forms to fix one error would inevitably result in another). Plus the forms would break every time we installed an update or patch to SharePoint.
I'm glad to see InfoPath gone, but would love to see conditional formatting in SharePoint Online (e.g. hide or show fields based on other field selection).

If MS stop evolutions , they must offer us another tool as easy.
The features of Infopath are needed everywere, for example wee need to customize libraries forms also (newform.aspx, etc...) without programming with J Scripts.

InfoPath is a wonderful tool. we need an easy way to create forms especially since SharePoint designer 2013 doesn't have the user interface any longer. They seem to take away all the easy to use tools and making things more cryptic. Please keep

Nintex is horrible and can't do 10% of the things that I do in InfoPath. It is not a good replacement. IP is a good starting point and just needs some tweaking and updating for it to work best for users.
I strongly agree! We have based our forms on InfoPath and discovered its "short life" in a near future... bad marketing, removing a useful product and giving no "B plan" for us!
