Here are some general questions about the app.
Q: Flick is covering other stuff on my computer, how do I temporarily hide it?
On Mac, press Cmd+Ctrl+H on the keyboard. On Windows, press Ctrl+Alt+H. Alternatively, you can click a blank space on the Flicktop.
Q: Where can I download the app?
To download the app, visit getflick.io or search the iOS, Mac, Android or Windows Phone app stores.
Q: I installed the app on my Mac or PC and nothing appears
Flick for Windows, Linux and Mac runs as a background service, and is only visible on your screen when there is a file on your “Flicktop”. To add a file to your Flicktop, drag and drop a file to the top of your screen. You should see a (+) sign when you can let go. The Flicktop will also appear when a file is flicked to you. You can also bring it up with the hotkey Cmd+Ctrl+H on Mac or Ctrl+Alt+H on Windows.
Q: The app is frozen on Windows, and right-clicking the Flick icon in the tray does nothing
Our first version of Flick for Windows used Java. We have since released a new version that runs natively on Windows. If you are experiencing this problem, please make sure you have the latest version from getflick.io.
If you are still experiencing problems, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: On Mac, some menu items in other apps are greyed out when Flick is running
Flick uses the top 2 pixels of the screen for mouse events, such as detecting a file drop. If you click right at the top of the screen (the top 2 pixels), your current app’s window will become unfocused (notice the red, yellow, green buttons become grey). To fix, simply click on that app’s window to refocus it, and then use the menu.
