One of the most popular products on this site is Flip It and this article is one of the most read articles in the history of this site. Since I received my new Flip It, the 2nd Generation, I have updated the original article but I thought it might make sense to create a new article with a direct comparison between the original and the new Flip It as well as a YouTube video which I hope you won’t miss below.

So, why did the original developer of Flip It create a larger and more versatile version? Well, it’s pretty simple. She listened to her customers. It’s as simple as that. Many customers said that the original Flip It was too small and asked her if she could develop a larger version. They also asked for additional tiles for other statuses as well as one that would act as a whiteboard that they could write down a custom status.
So, she basically satisfied both of those requests. And if you have already purchased Flip It, the 2nd generation you can follow this Facebook link and the developer will send you 3 new tiles – Do Not Disturb, Conference Call, and a customizable Whiteboard tile for free!
Check out the YouTube video below which will give you many more details…
