In a busy world that seems to never turn off — from email burnout, to social media overload, to Pokemon Go mania — productivity is at the heart of the conversation. Are we really getting more done by multi-tasking? Or is technology a big part of the reason why we’re not?
At Flipd, we ask that question every day. We like to think that the technology we use isn’t the problem: it’s the way we use it. That’s why we developed Flipd in the first place — to create an app that helps you filter out the distractions and the noise, without compromising your access to what really matters.
Over the past few months, with a lot of help from our community, our team has overhauled the Flipd Android design and made it much more easy to use, all with your productivity and time in mind. Our team went to Google’s Launchpad week in Mexico City where we learned from Google’s UX/UI design experts from all over South America and developed the wireframes and concepts for the latest version.
It's pretty awesome. Here’s why:
A long time coming, Flipd now flows with the principles of Material Design. With a deep purple and aquamarine colour palette, accented by bright yellow floating action buttons, Flipd is now more fluid than its previous version. With the ease of swiping between action screens, setting up your schedules and tracking your progress in Flipd has never been easier.
Full & Casual Lock
After positive reception of the Casual Lock feature on iOS, we’ve brought it to Android in this latest version. The difference between the two is that the Casual Lock will let you leave the lock screen and Flipd will remind you to come back. It adds a hint of gamification to motivate you to stay Flipd Off, with its “Sorry, better luck next time!” notification if you do happen to give up.
The Full Lock, like you would expect, is our original and effective Advanced Lock Screen to keep you out of tempting apps and messages when you need to stay focused.
This highly anticipated feature in Schedules will automatically Flip Off your phone at the time your schedule begins. It’s a great way to stay on top of your goals, instead of second-guessing (or putting off!) your scheduled Flipd notification. A must-have for students and professionals, this feature is available with a Premium subscription.

Groups are now very different from what they used to be. No longer are Groups used for remote locking; instead create a Group with your friends to send and receive challenges to Flip Off! You can also join groups made by our community to receive notifications to Flip Off your phone at the same time as others around the world.
