ScreenCloud Currencies App Guide

Please note, if you’re using the older version of ScreenCloud (signage.screencloud.com) you can download the alternative Currencies app guide here.

The ScreenCloud Currencies app allows you to share the latest currency rates from around the world to your digital screens in a visual display. Share the latest Pound to Dollars rates, Euro to Chinese Yuan, and more at the click of a button. This makes it easy to keep your office, lobby, store or school viewers up to date with the latest exchange rates through your digital screens.

With the ScreenCloud Currencies app you can:

  • Choose from over 100 different currencies
  • Select a base rate to compare
  • Show one or multiple currencies (up to 10 per page)

Here’s how it works:

1. Select and install ScreenCloud’s Currencies app

1.1. To begin, sign in your existing ScreenCloud account and access the App Store from the left-hand menu.

1.2.Type curr into the search box and you’ll find the Currencies app. Choose Install App to create a new instance.

2. Choose your settings 

In the next page, you’ll see a settings panel where you can add and edit an instance of the Currencies app. It’s useful to edit the Instance Name section (we named it Currency - Floor 1 here) to help you spot the instance later if you’re adding more than one Currencies app to your Playlist or Channel.

Unit will tell the app how much of each currency you would like to compare, for example, 100 US dollars to 100 Euros or 1 US dollar to 1 Euro. Base currency will determine which currency is used across all instances. You can also enter a custom page title.

Next, enter your currencies separated by non-space commas as shown in the example. Here, you can include up to 10 different currencies to compare per page.
