Where can I find the News Apps?
You can find a selection of News Apps within the Signagelive Marketplace: CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera. Each of these can be used to show feeds and articles from your selected source on a constantly updating basis. Once you have located the News Apps in the Marketplace, you can add the ones you like to your network by clicking on the blue + button.
If you aren’t sure how to use, or where to find the Marketplace, please see this article.
How do I Use/Customise them?
Your News Apps will work like any other Media Asset. Add one (or more) to a playlist and enter the Asset Properties to customise them.
Inside Asset Properties, you will be able to:
- Choose the specific feed. For instance; business, technology, politics etc
- Set the article display time.
- Change the background colours.
- Change the colour of the text; titles and content.
- Change the Publication Date Format
Once your App is configured, simply save your playlist to automatically update your screen, or move on to the Publish area to communicate your message.
