Sharing iPhone Content with a ‘fliing’ of the Wrist

Share Article

A major upgrade to the popular iPhone app, fliing, has been released this week to the iTunes store. Fliing is the evolutionary method of sharing content between iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches that uses a ‘fliinging’ motion to initiate data transfer. The new version allows log-in and sharing of YouTube videos and Facebook photos. Users can also share photos and contacts from their mobile device, send text messages, and send Facebook status updates.

A new version of the fliing iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch application just released to the iTunes App Store. Using the same motion as one would use to toss someone a photo, note, or business card, fliing enables the sharing of content between Apple mobile devices. Users have the choice of transferring their content via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Bluetooth has the added benefit of being able to share anywhere - meaning fliing is not dependent on a Wi-Fi or 3G/4G connection.

Fliing Technology – fliing uses the patent-pending Fliing Technology which utilizes a hand-held computing device’s accelerometer to initiate data transfer. The first platforms for launch were Apple mobile devices - with Android development currently underway. (

The fliing team encourages users to “get out, stay connected, and live beyond the cloud.”
