You know what a Flip film is don't you? It's a very short home made film that hopefully has a little artistic merit going for it. And how about a digital flipbook? That's one of those cool and classy online books that you can flip through with your fingers - rather like the way you would flip through a regular paper book. One of the most beautiful apps that illustrates the flipbook concept is Flipboard, of course, which won App of the Year a couple of years back. There are plenty of flipbooks available for your photos but there are very few that displays your Flips. FlipFilmer is a free video app that converts ten of your 5 second video clips into a digital flipbook and let's you share them through your favorite social network.
FlipFilmer is a social video sharing app that lets you convert your short videos into one, very cool digital flipbook that interactively bends, stops and occasionally flips your flip videos.

FlipFilmer lets you convert your videos easily into a digital toy and flip through pages with your thumb to experience the timeless charm of classic flipbooks in a modern way. To get your videos onto FlipFilmer doesn't require a great deal of technical prowess but there is an easy to use guide if you are feeling a little Luddite-esque this morning.

Flipbooks are not only lots of fun but look absolutely beautiful. It's hard to believe how much better they look in the flipbook than they do in their own right.
