Flipd was described to me as a hardline app for those with a phone addiction. Yes the full lock function does provide you with some respite when it is activated, however unlike other similar apps like Qualitytime Flipd does not automate it's scheduled block times. Instead it sends you a notification to remember to block your phone. If you have the self-control to stick to your schedule just by getting a reminder you probably don't need an app like this in the first place. This half-hearted function really brings my opinion of the app down. If they could automate scheduled block times to assist users to stick to their schedule this app would be a powerful, useful and indispensable tool.
I bought premium version, but quite disappointed. Whitelisted apps don't open ( they open for fraction of second and again close ) while mobile is locked by this app. Only 3 apps can be added to whitelist, that should have been customizable like more apps in premium version . calling dialer and sms messenger should have been among default apps. Morever you can overcome blocking by flipd simply by restarting mobile as power key remains functional,there should be option like autostart of flipd on restart so that it's foolproof or option to inactivate power key functions. Hoping for these modifications in next update of flipd
Flipd was actually required for us to have for a chemistry class. I was a little confused at first and worried that no one would be able to contact me in case of emergency. But, everything still works....just keeps you on track for those easily distracted by phones. It is actually very helpful! I'll be keeping this app long after chemistry class is over.
This app really helped me get to work and focus during the day. It allowed me to set times when oh would not want to use my phone to do things like study or go outside. I really recommend this app for anyone trying to limit phone use.
I was hoping for a cure for inability to shut off my phone, but I cracked it in 10 seconds: I pulled down the alert bar and opened the phone's settings. When I closed the settings, Flipd didn't come back up. The Flipd icon shows up in the alert bar with the notice "1 seconds remaining", but nothing happens and I have full use of my phone. I had high hopes but maybe the recent Android update brought this work around up?
Great app, Very helpful. I have some constructive criticism though. The problem is when I reset my phone or even turn it off and then on again, flipd doesn't work for 10-20secs. In that time of span, I can simply go to setting and disable the app. See? Flipd can be bypassed. I really wish you guys would do something to prevent this. I really need to counter my phone addiction :)
