Hi VortexKloe, regarding your concern, your account does not back up your projects! So if you decide to delete the application and reinstall it, you will lose all everything!

If you wish to keep your projects you could back them up and import them after reinstalling the application. Below you can watch a video on how to backup your projects. In order to open an exported project simply tap on the file from an email or file manager app and FlipaClip will be provided as an option to import it.

Some file manager apps are not working as intended, so we recommend to
check if you can import your project before uninstalling FlipaClip.

Oh man... :( Unfortunately once you remove FlipaClip everything is lost except your built movies.

One way you can avoid this from happening again is to backup your projects prior to uninstalling. Checkout the following post about that.

Things to precaution yourself is to save frequently and always save the file to an email after closing. :D Sorry for your inconvenience, also I am not a flipaclip staff member. You can't get your files back.

Hey, i was finishing up my project on the comeback competition, when all of a sudden i was logged out of flipaclip. When i logged back in all my projects weren't there. Seeing this made me do some observation. After doing the observation, I saw all my projects were still on my sd card, but was not showing in flipaclip. I truely believe it was because the competion apparently ended while i was working on my project in flipaclip. In any case I am asking can u bring all my projects back into flipaclip because they all took a while, and i really dont want to redo all of them.

Really? If it isnt too much work for you, can you explain a little bit more on how to do it?
