The purpose of Flipd is to help you unplug from your phone during class and train your brain to remain focused instead of getting distracted. The app nudges you to stay off of your phone if you try to use it during a lecture, and if you use Flipd during class you can track your progress throughout the semester. 


When you register for your class on Flipd using the 5-digit code provided by your instructor, Flipd will then keep track of your time spent Flipd Off throughout each lecture. If you remain Flipd Off for the entire lecture, you will be tracked as successfully participating in Flipd for 100% of that session. If at any point you decide to leave Flipd to use another app or check something else on your phone, you will appear as less than 100%. (Your professor will outline what his or her expectations are of you, but we always recommend to shoot for 100%!)


Flipd doesn't know what other apps you're using, what messages you sent or received, or any other contents of your phone. Flipd simply lets your professor know whether you were or were not unplugged during their class period.
