Code Features

  • Mobile app download on demand

    Apps can download files based on the user’s request. For example, video, audio or files can be downloaded if the user wants them. Downloaded files can be displayed and removed from the device.

    This is a very useful feature if your app has a lot of files that users may want to download so they can use them offline

    Skills required: HTML, CSS, and Javascript

March 2019

Code Features

  • Data-Driven screens 

    Data-driven screens can dynamically display a record from a Fliplet data source. For example, if you have a set of products in a spreadsheet you can use this feature to load a product into a screen and avoid producing a screen for each product in Fliplet Studio. 

    This feature is very useful if you have a lot of content you want to display in an app or you want to manage the content for your app in a data source, reducing the number of separate screens.
