Data storage, integrations and security

Making data management simple and secure

Fliplet app examples

Data storage

Fliplet offers an inbuilt data source manager. This allows users to easily store app data in a device or share data centrally across all apps. You can even share data across different apps should you wish.

Direct access to the data is only available via Fliplet Studio. Access to data via the apps can be controlled by the app creator - allowing different users different levels of read/write access.

The data source interface resembles other popular data and spreadsheet tools for ease of use.

Displaying data and editing data in apps

Once you have the data in a Fliplet data source it is very simple to connect it with an app. Fliplet has prefab components to help with this. The “Lists from Data Source” component takes your data and iterates through it to produce different list layouts eg, you can create a directory of people based on a list of contact details and images. Other common data driven layouts include newsfeeds, discussion forums, calendars, social posts, and feedback submissions.

Writing data from an app is typically done via a form component. Data entry options include rich text, multichoice, single choice, photo uploads and more.

If you want to work with a datasource programmatically you can find more information on the methods on our developer site developers.fliplet.com.

Data integrations with third party databases

Connecting Fliplet apps with third party databases is a common request. There are essentially three ways to pass information:

1. Use Fliplet's REST API - Fliplet offers a REST API publicly available that clients can use to upload or download data that is tightly integrated with Fliplet. You can find further information on our developer site here: developers.fliplet.com.

2. Use a third party’s REST API - Snippets of javascript can be run from within Fliplet apps (via the developer options) to connect to third party APIs. Fliplet clients have integrated Fliplet apps with Salesforce, box, Google Docs and many other custom REST APIs.

3. Database/ODBC integration - Fliplet has a Data Integration Service (DIS) that can be installed by a client and connected to their database. It will then sync data with Fliplet automatically. This is the best option for contact data or company news that is already stored in a company database.

Data security, privacy and GDPR

Security is a priority at Fliplet. We work with many enterprise clients with sensitive information and high security standards.

Data processed by Fliplet is encrypted in transit and rest. All connections to Fliplet communicate using a secure connection via HTTPS with a 256 bit SHA certificate via SSL cryptographic protocol, and data at rest in Fliplet’s production database is encrypted.

Fliplet complies with GDPR. Under the regulations, Fliplet is considered a Data Processor and Fliplet’s clients are typically considered to be Data Controllers. Fliplet is happy to assist its clients with technical and organizational measures, where possible, in meeting their obligations.
