Note: Web apps now have better and more readable links, allowing you to share specific screens as a URL. To learn more about screen sharing, see the section in the article below. If you would like to use this, please contact Fliplet support so we can enable it for your app.

Publishing your Fliplet App to the Web

After you’ve created and tested your Fliplet app, you can choose to deploy it to the supported publishing channels, including the Web. This will create a URL for the app, as well as specific screens you can share publicly.

Why Publish your Fliplet App to the Web
