Flipp brings Flyers and Weekly Ads straight to your device

Although I'm a big fan of Reebee, it hasn't had an update in.. well, forever as far as I can recall and as sad as it sounds, one of my guilty pleasures is actually reading through the flyers each week to see what's on sale and if there's any good deals out there to be had. Pro Tip: There's not but I still look every week through my favorite shops.

A new option has arrived in BlackBerry World for BlackBerry 10 smartphones via an Android port after having some success on iTunes and Google Play and it goes by the name of Flipp. It shares a lot of the same features as Reebee in the fact that you tell it where you live and it will then go out and fetch all the flyers and weekly ads for your area.

One thing different about it though is that it allows you to save flyer 'clips' as they're called. The clips help you keep track of things you may want to purchase. Simply tap on an item and it gets saved to your clip section so you can always refer back to it if you're out shopping and need a reminder of that cool thing you saw. It's pretty neat and especially useful if you're insanely forgetful like me.

On top of that, you can filter down ads as well so if you only care about electronics then you just see only electronics retailers flyers and so on. Flipp is available as a free download and yes, it is an Android app but it runs fairly well.

Same here. I have discovered that the Flipp app is much better than the Reebee a even though it's just an android app because it feels really smooth in comparison to the Rebee app which was really laggy even though it was a native BlackBerry 10 app. Another thing I like about Flipp is that there seems to be a larger selection of flyers to choose from in my area.

Android port but it's buttery smooth so far. My wife's got this on her phone and I find it better than reebee

This is a true example of a great android port...I got it and I had to leave a 5 star review truly amazing and smooth. as long as the android ports are smooth like this then we are good to go...one poor example of a horrible android port is Tango....holy man....that app is laggy I'm shocked it got approved through blackberry world

I had already downloaded this through Snap as well. Very good app, very smooth and had many more flyers than Reebee. Reebee has been very laggy lately.

Hi there, Flipp developer here. Try swipe left (scrolling to the right) to get started. This wasn't very clear and we'll be fixing this in the update.

Just downloaded it and gave it a try.
Looks very good and seems to have a lot of flyers too.

But Reebee gets a flyer from a local store (TSC) that I always like to look at and this new app does not, I even did a search for it and it did not find it.
Other than missing a flyer I would like to see, seems like a very nice App.

Love this app. A money saver for sure.
I've even seen people using this app and their phone to price match at the checkout.

How cool is that!? Now the companies do not have to search you to sell you their crap and bombard you with useless ads but can wave the flag and let them know.

Arrrrrrgh... i'm too old for this world X(

I keep hoping someone will port Flyerflo, which is a similar app but built by a dev in Mississauga, which means they have all the Canadian retailers. So far, no BlackBerry love. I'll try this one and see how it looks :)

Downloaded it and I am impressed with how many flyers it does have. I have requested three more that would complete my needs.

I like the clipping feature. Would love to have them added to the remember app as a shopping list or to Evernote or ABI Notes but realize this would be difficult.

I like the favourites as well. Is it possible to remove any unwanted flyers? For example, I will never step foot in a Brick store again and would like to permanently remove them from the flyer list.

Not thrilled with the Android flow to it. I would pay for a native BlackBerry app.

Nice app.
