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 from our integration with Twelve Data API. The API allows you to show the latest currency rates.
With the ScreenCloud Currencies app you can:
Here’s how it works:
1.1. To begin, sign in to 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.
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.
The acronym for each currency the app supports is listed as below:
