Flipps is an app that lets you project movies, TV, music videos and other video content on your TV using only your smartphone or tablet.
Flipps is an iOS and Android app that makes it easy to stream video content on a big-screen TV. As cable has become less popular and online video services have become more prevalent, more and more options for TV streaming have emerged. All of those options — Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, etc. — require the purchase and set-up of some form of hardware. Flipps provides phone-to-TV streaming capability without any cords or extra devices at all. As long as your TV and your phone are connected to the same Wifi network, you can watch hundreds of channels of digital content on TV without leaving the couch. You also don’t have to empty your wallet, as the Flipps HD app recently dropped its price from $4.99 to $0. It’s now available for free in both the iOS and Google Play App Stores.
If you’re unable to connect a TV for any reason, you can still enjoy content on your phone’s screen from directly within the Flipps app. The app hosts a great deal of videos, from popular Hollywood movies to trailers, music videos, and shorter web videos from sites like The Washington Post or FailArmy. Access to some of these videos requires creating an account on a third-party site like Trivihub, but it’s typically easy enough to set up. Most of them are free, but there are also paid options for newer or more popular films. All of the available options are displayed in the Flipps app’s channel list, which includes major channels like Viewster alongside smaller web-based sites like Buzz 60. Using Flipps’ channel list is like browsing a TV Guide that’s been updated to fit the needs of 21st century viewers. Flipps understands the future of TV, and it’s created an app that makes the streaming experience infinitely easier. Anyone looking for a better way to stream video content on their TV should take advantage of Flipps being available for free download.
