Using text apps

Within OnSign’s App Library (How to Add Apps) , you will find the text apps category. These are ideal for writing short notes, news, oficial communicates and advertise events while displaying other medias. Simple and intuitive, you will find your way out easily when creating these apps.

Rich text app
  • Rich text app: The main feature of this app is being totally customizable! Change background and font colour, font size, line height, alignment and page margin. You can apply different settings to specific text parts separately.

    The app is perfect for full size use, but it is highly adaptable to any screen area. Just remind checking the “Auto-fit text size”, so that the whole content is adjusted to the new area. Always preview the app and test the campaign in a single device before launching it to your whole digital signage operation.

  • text app
  • Vertical and horizontal text ticker: Sentences roll on this app, available in both horizontal and vertical orientation. To separate the pieces of text, just begin a new line at the text editor in app settings. You can also opt for applying text transition fade instead. The speed of animation is adjustable.

    Keep in mind the size of your screen when using fade animation. The longer the sentence, the smaller the font.

    Note that capslock is the only format available for the vertical text ticker.

  • QR code text apps
  • QRcode: Invite your audience to discover more information on their mobile, right from your screen! QRcodes make calls to action much more effective by indicating the direction straight to a website URL. Using this powerful feature is quite easy. You just need to paste the URL or message you want to display on the app settings.
