Multitasking and Productivity are the two primary things that every mobile user loves. Especially, “multitasking” which has always been a challenge for the app developers as well as for the people who like to open several links while surfing the web. So, If you hangout a lot on your mobile browser and always face problem in opening multiple links then Flynx is the solution as it lets you open several link in the background.
We recently had conversations with the Flynx Co-Founder, Unique Jain in which he explained the idea and the future plans of Flynx. Here we go,
Q 1 – Let’s start with the quick introduction of the app, so what is it and what does it do?
Our app is a complete re-imagination of what browsers should be when designed for mobile devices. It helps you browse links, that you come across in any app on your device, in an effortless and intuitive way. It loads you webpages in background while you do something more productive than stare at a blank screen on a traditional browser waiting for the page to load. It’s such a unique solution that most of our users don’t realize it that they need this app until they start using it. I highly recommend your readers who are on android to just check out the app once.
Q 2 – There are thousands of productivity apps on play store, how’s your app is different from other apps?
Once in a while a technology or an app comes around which fundamentally changes things. We think we are doing it for mobile browsing. Hence we are solving a unique problem that the user doesn’t realizes until he/she sees our solution. So we are actually very different in that sense from an average productivity application which is just another take on current solutions.
Q 3 – What keeps you motivated to face the fierce competition in the app market?
We are not deterred by the competition in the app market, rather we welcome the competition. It brings innovation and also keeps pushing developers like us to try and extend beyond what’s possible and come up with new and better solution for our users.
Also we are not in here to just build a few apps, we are here with a vision on how mobile browsing and mobile browsers should look like. That is what separates us from the competition.
Q 4 – Tell us something about your team.
We are a team of 4 co-founders who graduated from DA-IICT last year. We have known each other for about 5 years now. All of us are extremely passionate about technology and how it can help users. It’s this philosophy that led us to work together on Flynx. This close friendship among the founders lead to excellent workplace environment. Each of the co-founder bring invaluable experience with him. Before working on Flynx, we have worked in companies like Amazon, Samsung, Kuliza etc.
Q5- How does it differ from Link Bubble?
The current generation of browsers that you see on mobile are inspired from their desktop counterparts. But time and again we have seen that mobile needs re-imagining things from ground up. That’s why we built Flynx. We are not in business of making yet another floating browser. We have vision of completely transforming your browsing experience which is tailored for the mobile devices. That is why we were the first one to introduce “Reading mode” in our browser much before our competition. Also we don’t put limit on our apps such as opening one tab or limited use of Reading mode in our Free version. We believe that this kind of experience should be available to everyone. And in this continued effort we are working on many features that are just focused on making web browsing experience on mobile better.
Q 6 – What Hurdles you faced while developing it?
There are many technical hurdles in developing an app that complex in floating style bubble. The web view of Android has some critical bugs which causes app to crash and leads to bad user experience for our users. We are working hard to make our app as stable for our users as possible but bugs like these make our work extremely hard.
Q 7- How’s has been your Journey so far?
The journey has been great. It is a first startup for all the co-founders and the support and love of the people that we have got is absolutely amazing. Be it our users, our friends, families, startup community people, everyone has been just amazing.
Q8 – It’s in Beta, right? When will it come out of BETA?
Yes, we are working hard to make user experience as good as possible. We are hoping to get a stable version out by first week of October.
Q 9 – Finally, How do you plan to take it to next level?
All our energy is focused on giving a better browsing experience to our users and to take Flynx to next level we will continue to do that with continuous innovation. We are also getting tremendous amount of feedback from our users which is helping us everyday in taking our app to next level.
