What is a FLIP file?

The FLIP file type is a format created by Heyzine Flipbooks. This specialized file format is designed to encapsulate the dynamic essence and design of flipbooks, while protecting the author's copyright and allowing readers to view them offline, providing the same experience as online versions, but in a more shareable and portable way.

How to open a FLIP file?

  1. Download the Heyzine flipbook reader app
  2. Install the app
  3. Locate the .flip file you want to open
  4. Double-click on the file or select open from the main menu and browse to it

Why to use a downloadable flipbook?

Sometimes you need to display your flipbook on a device that is not connected to the Internet. Or maybe you need to distribute the publication offline via DVD or USB drive. Or sometimes it's just easier to send a file instead of a link. For all these cases the best option is a downloadable flipbook in FLIP format.

How to create a downloadable flipbook?

Start by creating the flipbook with the online maker. Then from the Share menu, look for the Download option where you will find the downloadable flipbook file in FLIP format.

Solving problems with FLIP files

The app shows the error "The selected file format is too new": This happens when the flip file has been created with new features that the current version of the application does not support. Please make sure you have the latest version of the application installed for it to work properly.

The app shows the error "View limit": This happens when the flip file has the protection mode enabled by the author and has been opened too many times on too many different devices.

The app shows the error "Invalid file": This happens when the flip file has not been downloaded correctly or has been manipulated after saving. Try downloading it again from a valid source.
