ScreenCloud Foursquare App Guide

Is Foursquare a social media channel you use to get more coverage and customers to your restaurant, bar or café? Then it’s time to take this to the next level by adding Foursquare content to your digital signage screens. The Foursquare app from ScreenCloud lets you take your Foursquare page and reviews left by customers, and easily add them to your digital signage screens.

With the ScreenCloud Foursquare app you can:

  • Easily share reviews from Foursquare to your digital screen
  • Choose a rating filter to ensure only the reviews you want to see are shown
  • Gain more Foursquare followers and more check ins for your bar, restaurant or café by improving visibility

Here’s how it works:

1. Select and install ScreenCloud’s Foursquare app

To begin, follow this link and select “Install this app” in the bottom right-hand corner. This will log you in to your ScreenCloud account, or prompt you to set up our free trial in order to use the Foursquare app and others within our App Store.

2. Add your Foursquare URL

Next, go to your Foursquare page and copy the URL shown. This is the URL used to display the reviews page, as shown below:

Add this to the URL box within the Foursquare app settings page.

Next, log in to your Foursquare account. Once you have logged in you will see a green checkmark next to the “login” button.

3. Choose your rating

Next you can choose whether you would like to show all of your Foursquare reviews, or only those marked with a “Positive” filter by choosing from the Rating filter dropdown.

Item duration (in seconds) allows you to pick how many seconds you would like to show each review for before moving onto the next one.

4. Preview your results

Once you have chosen your settings you can select “Preview” to see what your reviews will look like on screen. This allows you to check you have the correct page and that you are showing the reviews you wish your audience to see.

Once you are happy click “Add App” and give your reviews a name. This helps you to differentiate this Foursquare page from any other reviews you may wish to add.

Your Foursquare reviews will now be available within the Content Library.

5. Add your Foursquare reviews to a playlist

Next, go to “Playlists” and drag and drop the app from the selection bar on the right-hand side to the playlist of your choosing.

You can also set the duration you would like the reviews to show for (currently set as 01:00 for one-minute). For example, if you have set each review to show for 10 seconds and the app to play for a duration of one-minute you will see a total of 6 reviews during that time.
