Internet requirement

Flassh is a live, online, instant-sharing platform. To run events effectively, an Internet connection is required. Some features may work without an Internet connection, but most of our applications operate under the assumption that a stable connection is available.

If a WiFi or wired Internet connection is not available at your event’s location, we recommend using a personal hotspot from your phone or tablet.

Exit Full Screen Mode

Once you’re running an event, the tablet goes into full-screen mode and there is no obvious way to exit (this is by design).

Each of the four corners of the screen accept a single-finger long-press gesture that will allow you to exit the event and return to your event management screen.

Step 5: Share your photos

  • See and download your photos from your online photo gallery.
  • Use the Flassh iPad or iPhone app to see, share, and download your event photos. Create a photo sharing kiosk to let your guests send their favorite photos instantly.

Step 6: Make your event live

Now that you've tested everything and you're ready to party – pay for your Event Credit on the Billing page.

  1. From the Flassh app, tap Run
  2. Tap Convert to Live to use your pre-paid event credit
  3. Take unlimited photos during the next 24 hours
