  • Pros: 

    Good and innovative idea

    Cons: 

    Breaks very easily. No service, no contact, no support since months. No possibility to get in contact with the team. O

    Guess they are out of business ?!?

Thx for the hunt @vivianroldo! Happy to be part of the community @producthunt In short, You can connect the counter to your social media pages, custom message and our api enable you to connect the device to any kind of data. 😖 Should you have any questions.... Cheers!
@chrisavignon if you have more followers,stars, etc. than there are digits, can you display kind of a + or something like 1m e.g.?
@willyyr yes indeed, 1m for 1 million. There is numbers on the large module so you can show up to 9999999.
@chrisavignon You're welcome ;)
@chrisavignon @vivianroldo @producthunt I love this product.. Because I love great ideas especially when implement to create high quality products such as this one! I have an idea for an application of your existing product that I did not see highlighted here.. Please consider the following.. Based on my own personal experience I believe your technology will hold great place in.. Food trucks!.. Because food trucks are trending and reliant heavily on social media for marketing.. I hope this helps! Thanks, Jaswinder Brar
Are you related in a way or another to the French "Smiiirl" ? https://www.producthunt.com/tech...
@bob6664569 we are not, its a cool product but completely different, with Flapit you can track any data with the API, in addition to the 6 digits you can connect to 11 SM platforms, trigger IFTT, manage multiple devices from the same admin. We also have letters to act as more of a signage device than just a counter.
@chrisavignon @bob6664569 Seems a bit far fetched to say it's "completely different". It's actually VERY similar and I believe very inspired from Smiirl since they have been in business for quite some time. Though I think 11 SM platforms is excessive, I like the "signage" feature, could be nice for event locations which need to regularly change their signage.
@tom_jacquesson @bob6664569 Our customers range from retail stores to hospitality businesses including restaurants, bars, cafés and hotels, but also a significant number of agencies and offices. The use will vary from showcasing review scores (Yelp/Tripadvisor/Zomato) or social following (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram) to engaging with customers by displaying price points or discounts or a simple welcome message.
While I do feel this is pretty expensive for what it is, I do also think it's pretty damn cool haha
@benwilsondesign Thx, we are giving a special 15% OFF for ProductHunt community with this coupon ---> FLAPITHUNT
Love the idea here. We all know users love social proof, so bringing that front and centre to the offline world makes total sense. Plus I love the old school flap mechanism over a digital counter, this helps reinforce the real world aspect for me. Not sure it's worth the price at £299, but would definitely be interested if I was a shop owner and the price was a bit more reasonable. Cool product 👌
How you justify the price of $ 449 ( = Price of 16GB iPad Air 2 ) ?
@tahatayyab despite the obvious differences... it depend if you are a brick and mortar business who want to increase in store traffic and customer engagement or a business owner who wants to motivate sales team or have a fun counter to track social media activities.
