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 – with flippr, you will have floating widgets accessible from anywhere. A new kind of multitasking.

Flippr is a small bubble 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.
