Transitioning between Fliplet Studio Version 1 & Version 2

Some frequently asked questions for you.

Whats new in Fliplet Studio V2

Fliplet Studio V2 is a step change in the way you will create mobile apps. The updated studio has been built on completely new foundations, based on the very latest web and mobile technologies – allowing you to take full advantage of the mobile world.

The interface has been also simplified, with everything becoming editable within the device frame itself (rejoice! No more “Click to edit content”). The new studio interface allows any user to quickly and easily create, edit and test mobile applications. And we believe this is the best, most versatile mobile creation tool ever made.

We have also added live preview – so you can test your app without ever leaving your browser – though we do suggest using Fliplet Viewer to test properly!

What to expect during the public BETA of Fliplet Studio V2

Fliplet Studio V2 is still in its beta phase – which means there will be bugs. There will also be features still to be added. So please be patient.

What we do ask is that you’re hyper sensitive to anything you think is weird, wonderful and everything in between. Anything that grabs your attention – please note it down!

Bugs, feedback (good and bad) and feature requests will help to shape Fliplet Studio! So it’s your opportunity to influence Fliplet!

What will happen to the apps I built in the original Fliplet Studio?

No need to worry, the apps that you built in Fliplet Studio V1 will still be available to edit and update, but only in the original studio interface. You can even begin new projects in version one (we don’t know why you would though…)

Over the coming year, we will work with you to help move your apps from V1 to V2 and we hope that the lure of Version 2 will be too great to ignore.

Will I be able to use the new features on apps that were built on the original Fliplet Studio?

You won’t. Any new features available in Fliplet Studio V2 will be for apps build in V2 only. These features utilise the latest and greatest in mobile technology so it’d be silly to try and fit them into an old system!

Creating Your App

How do I create a new app?

  1. To create a new app, go to [Link: studio.fliplet.com] and click “Create a new app”.
  2. Then, select the app template you’d like to begin with and click “Build”.
  3. Tell Fliplet what you’d like to name your app and also select its orientation.
  4. Finally, click build to begin editing your app!

You can also start from scratch by selecting a blank template – but this is just additional work!

How do I edit an existing app?

To edit an existing app, click on “Browse your apps” on the left-hand side. You’ll see a list of all the apps that you can view and edit.

To start editing an app, find the one you’re looking for and click “edit” – you’ll then be taken into Fliplet Studio. Depending on the version the app was built in, you’ll be taken to either Fliplet Studio V1 or V2 automatically.

Note: Your list of available apps will be split into two sections. First will be apps build in Fliplet Studio V2 and below, titled “Apps built using old Fliplet Studio” will be all the apps from Fliplet Studio V1.

How do I edit my app?

Fliplet Studio V2 has made it super easy to edit your apps – you can start editing by simply clicking on the device frame

What is a component?

A component is an interactive tool you can add to your app. They range from buttons through to more complicated things like authentication screens.

Note: Components are bases on Javascript and can utilise many of the mobile devices’ core functionality like the camera, speakers and others.

You can drag and drop a component into any screen to add additional functionality – they are great for creating ‘app like’ experiences – as Apple like to say.
