Cool [APP][4.0.3+] Flippr - all your widgets. Anywhere. Everywhere. New way to multitask.

[APP][4.0.3+] Flippr - all your widgets. Anywhere. Everywhere.





Feature requests and bug reports are most welcome!

WHAT IS IT?
With flippr, your favorite widgets are always a touch away. Access your widgets while using any application or game without returning to the home screen! Check weather when playing your favorite game. Check your stock portfolio when watching a video. Read your tweets when waiting for a level to load in a fullscreen game. Yes, it is all possible with flippr. No longer are your widgets restricted to your home screen. A new kind of multi tasking.

Flippr is a small bubble (PA Halo inspired) that you can interact with which stays on top of all apps - you can access all your widgets with this small bubble. Touch bubble and move finger horizontally to switch widgets in smooth transitions. Organize your widgets into groups (Social, Media, Notes). Touch and move finger vertically to switch groups.

Your current app/game continues to run and you can interact with them even when the widget is displayed! This enables a new kind of multitasking.

Check out the video to see flippr in action:


FEATURES
1. Organize widgets into groups for easy access or put all your widgets in one group - your choice.
2. Works over any app or even full screen games.
3. Widget peek - quickly peek your widgets with a touch. Raise to hide. Simple.
4. Option to hide widget on interaction - change option in Preferences. Option available on a per widget basis in PRO.
5. Option to hide on touching outside.
5. Super smooth customizable animations
6. Customize bubble size, position, side, color, transparency and more!
7. Widget navigation indicators
8. Customize widget size (row/column span) and background color.
9. Very light APK - below 1MB

NOTE: Manufacturer specific (Samsung/HTC etc) widgets may not work with flippr.
If you find any bugs or mistakes in the application, please send me an email (or reply in this thread) with your feedback and I promise I will work on it promptly. Let’s squish those bugs together.

Thanks, let me know how you like it. Feature requests and bug reports are most welcome!

Shy Widgets
Some people have said that the widget is hiding as soon as they touch it. Yes, this is the behavior by default. But, you can change it in Preferences. Look for the setting 'Hide widget on interaction' and disable it.

I have changed the post mentioning this.

Thumbs up I like it

I like it so far - animations are smooth on my N5. Took a bit of time to get used to switching groups though.

Can you make the auto hide option setting for each widget? I may need some widgets to hide on touch, but some to stay.

Yes, check out the latest update. Per widget setting is a PRO only feature though. Also, I have disabled 'hide on interaction' by default to avoid confusion.

Default Sorry!!

Sorry, everyone. I messed up slightly with the update.

Some of you may be getting an 'Error adding widget' message when trying to add a widget. I have fixed the issue and have pushed an update to the Play Store and should be available in a couple of hours.

If it is still not fixed, then clearing app data will definitely fix the issue.

Again, I am very sorry about this

you know what would be cool? a pro version option to make the widget hide when tapping on the screen anywhere outside of the widget. sometimes I just can't get the widget to go away by tapping on the Flippr thingy, and I can't tap on the widget itself because that will be interpreted by the widget as me touching it.

this app is a really nice concept by the way.

Edit: and one other idea ill just throw out there... Action Launcher also has capability to put widgets in a sidebar but the concept is a little different - basically, it uses a slide out panel that houses the widgets. this is an exceptionally easy to use format for quickly accessing a set of widgets. it's basically an app sidebar but for widgets. the downside is that the panel blocks a lot of the screen (more than what any one widget does). but like I said, depending on the use case, it's a very easy format to use.
