Infinite scrolling is a feature that many modern programs contain and which is designed with the idea of keeping you in a program or application indefinitely. The way it works is that when you open a list of posts, that list doesn’t contain five or ten posts per page, but all the posts are on one page, like when you use Instagram or TikTok, and you can scroll endlessly or until you get to the last post.
Flex Scroll is a free app for Android that will provide you with additional commands, within any app, that will allow you to automatically scroll.
How Does Flex Scroll Work?
After installing Flex Scroll, the first thing you need to do is to give the app permission to place its interface over other apps, and there is a detailed guide for how to do this within the app itself. After this, you need to select the applications in which Flex Scroll will be activated.
Before you start using it, check out the Lock app in memory option. Depending on the settings you have on your phone, Android may turn off background apps to save battery or for security reasons. In that case, you need to use this option to stop Flex Scroll from shutting down, otherwise Android will shut down its interface.
Flex Scroll is used to automate the scrolling of content on the screen. When you start an app where you have given it permission, its menu will appear on the left side of the screen. You can freely move this menu around the screen, as well as hide it, and in the settings, you can adjust its appearance and the options it will contain.
Options include scrolling up or down at low or high speed, moving content up or down page by page, returning to the top of the page, and a scroll timer, which will automatically scroll at time intervals you set. During use, we noticed that scrolling sometimes chops a bit, especially at lower speeds, but this did not bother us too much, and using the application itself was pleasant and intuitive.
If You Spend a Lot of Time in Front of Your Phone, Try Flex Scroll
While using Flex Scroll, we used the page-by-page scrolling option the most, but we can imagine situations where the other options might be useful. However, for us personally, half of the pleasure of wasting time in front of a phone screen is the act of scrolling, so this is not the app for us. However, this is by no means a criticism and we believe there are many who will disagree with our opinion, so we encourage you to give it a try, you might like it.
