    A new way to collaborate within apps

  • Sharing Made Easy

    Flick-to-Share is a revolutionary new way to share files quickly within existing applications. Built to leverage the collaborative nature of mobile devices, Flick-to-Share allows colleagues using the same app to share a work-in-progress with the flick of a finger. Today mobile app users must resort to email, cloud-based services like DropBox or cumbersome device-to-device sharing protocols to enable sharing. With the Flick-to-Share service embedded in an app a user can tap an icon to enter sharing mode, select a colleague from one of three targets on the edges of the device and flick the file to that target. Instantly that person will receive the file whether she is across the room or on the other side of the world. Sharing is a snap.
  • ChemDraw and Chem3D are the first two apps to leverage this technology to share native files between a pre-selected network of collaborators. Within the lab setting scientists are always scribbling notes and passing ideas back and forth during the creation of new compounds. With Flick-to-Share embedded into the premiere tool for drawing chemical structures, these ideas can be digitized, captured, and efficiently shared with fellow researchers any where in the world.
  • Flick-to-Share really shines in the classroom setting. During a class students can flick molecules to the instructor, get feedback and then have the finished molecule sent back. Instructors have the freedom to walk around the classroom while projecting images from their iPads via Apple TV and simultaneous engaging with each student. Classes will become more interactive as molecules zoom around the room.
  • The power of Flick-to-Share lies in its simplicity. Accessing your contact list, you can quickly find or invite people to join your network. Using natural gestures of the iPad, swiping your finger to share a file with a friend just feels right. And seeing it animate away from your finger to your colleague makes sharing fun.
