- Password protection provides security for your created card packs’ IP.
- Selection of external storage options (including Dropbox) which allow the creators to share packs with other FFC users.

Using your cards
Moving between questions and answers
The user is able to view the cards between questions and answers by flipping the smart phone or tablet forward and back, or by touching the screen when the cards are in the play mode. A visual function hand prompt will guide the user through the cards.
Moving between the individual cards
The user is able to slide their finger from right to left to move forward and left to right to move back through the cards on the screen as demonstrated by the visual prompt.
Visit our tutorial “How to Get Started”, tutorial # 1, or view Video tutorial # 1, from the Pack List on the app or activate the tutorials from the website.
The user is able to select from a variety of ready-to-use template layouts to create many styles of flash cards. There are templates for both sides of the cards (question and answer formats) as well as templates that have an area to insert a photo, image or video.
The card template you select for the first card will remain consistent throughout the pack. If you change the header text or spine text or the theme color, that change will also be consistent throughout the pack.
To change the card text, just click on the text and change it, then press Done. You will note that all the text in the pack will have changed.
Users can select from a variety of toolbar functions that assist in the creation of a card including alignment, font, font sizes, colors, symbols and languages.
Images, sounds and videos can be added to individual cards to enhance the visual/audio effect of the cards.
Mathematical and scientific symbols are just some of the wide range of technical symbols available within the app. Many symbols will register with the text to speech function, for example “°C” is spoken as “degrees Celsius” and “m3” is spoken as “cubic metres”.
How to use the above features are described in the downloadable tutorials and video tutorials which can be accessed from the “Pack List” on the app or, alternatively, users can activate the tutorials from the website.
Images: Library, Camera or Video
Images can be selected from your personal device library or photos can be taken live with a camera feature within the app.
Images and copied text may be subject to copyright. Confirm your rights before uploading any image, picture, photo or text. Download royalty-free or purchase images from picture providers on the internet.
During the creation of the cards the user can record their own recordings for a period of up to 30 seconds on each card throughout the pack.
Each recording made will increase the pack digital data stored and produce longer upload and download periods, due to the file size. FFC recommends that users minimise the recordings where possible, if the created packs are to be shared with other FFC users.

Users of the Flip Flash Cards app may create their own short 30-second video for personal use, for presentations or promotional material on all card templates where the photo icon appears. If your video exceeds 30 seconds, you can use a video link instead.
Each video installed will increase the pack’s digital data stored and, as a result, take longer to upload and download. FFC recommends that users minimise the use of videos where possible and use video links.

Card Play Modes
The Flip Flash Cards app gives users the ability to learn their way. The user can select a play mode that suits their learning requirements at any given time. For example, if the user is driving, the user can play their card set in the “auto play” mode.
Manual – the user controls the speed by which cards are viewed as well as the playing of videos and activating of video links.
Auto – plays the cards in order without the user needing to touch the device or screen. This function is perfect for learning when needing to be hands free such as when driving. Please note that videos and video links cannot be activated whilst the app is in auto play as these functions require the user to physically touch on the screen.
Auto play and loop – plays the cards automatically and then continues to repeat playing of the cards within the selected set of cards
Random – When in the “random play” mode, the cards will play through in any order. This creates a more advanced testing of the user’s knowledge of the subject matter.
This function allows the user to switch on or off the personal recording that has been created on individual cards.
This covers the information on the app developer, app build number and technical support details.
Text to Speech
This function allows the user to switch on or off the text to speech function.
The “function prompt hand” can be switched on or off. This is a personal choice.
Auto- show Question Only
In this mode, on the question sides of the cards will be played/shown. This function allows the user to self-test the knowledge gained by only hearing the question and not the answer.
Select Speech Language
This function allows the user to choose from a selection of “text to speech” languages to set as the default language for all cards.
This function allows the user a pre-set the count down time before the card commences to play. This allows time for the user to position the device in their pocket and listen with headphones or place on a table and link to a larger TV or monitor.
The user is required to create a storage server account. This will allow the user to store and share the packs of cards created. FFC recommends Dropbox.

The Flip Flash Cards app has a selection of security features.
The latest encoding program has been used to protect the card packs between the device and server.
All packs of cards that have been created remain the property of the creator. The editing on the cards can only be accessed via an admin password created by the pack creator. Other users of the pack can only view the card packs.
When the cards are shared with others via a share code, a password can be installed to protect the pack from unauthorised downloading. The number of authorised copies of a pack to be downloaded can also be pre-determined by the creator providing further protection for the card packs.
Once a created pack of cards has been downloaded to a secondary device, the card pack can only be viewed, not edited. The card pack or packs that have been shared can’t be modified or pasted onto by other users of the Flip Flash Cards app. Only the creator of the pack can authorize the number of packs available via the share code and password.
When the creator transfers their work from their device to Flip Flash Cards app via a selected server, the set of cards are changed into a format that prevents any changes being made to the card pack questions or answers and remains the intellectual right of the creator. The flashcards can only be altered through the authority of the creator and admin password. If the password has been provided, editing access can be granted.

Any information created within Flip Flash Cards is not open to the public domain. Your information submitted through the lodgement of your pack or packs via the Flip Flash Cards web store will only be viewed and filed by Flip Flash Cards Pty Ltd. The user is only able to make changes once they have provided the appropriate passwords and cards cannot be altered or changed once moved out of the creator’s device, e.g. sent to the server or posted online.
Web or Email Links
When creating a pack of cards, the user has the option of inserting a website link or email address so that potential clients/customers can quickly and easily contact them directly.
A “share code” is created at the time of uploading a new pack of cards onto a user’s nominated server. This share code will only ever appear at the bottom of the Pack List image icon on the editing page and only on the device that the pack was created.
This share code must be provided to other nominated users so that they can download the set of cards. Note: if a password has also been created to protect this set of cards, that will also be required by the downloader.
Sharing on Social Media
The creator can post the packs of cards created via Twitter and Facebook or select to email the share code to individuals or work groups.
