I'm @Thomas Marban, and I created Flipso to keep my family posted while traveling the world. Why not use Facebook or iMessage, you ask? Because not everyone had an account, an iPhone, or even the knowledge to install an app. But what every one of them had already installed was an e-mail client. Boom. So while staying on the beautiful island of Ishigaki, Japan, I grabbed a few cocktails and built a quick demo that later became Flipso. Thanks for checking it out.
