Get their attention every time they
check the Time or the Date
Video Kiosk – Android supports digital signage in both full screen and a split screen layout where three areas can host Android App Widgets.
While there are literally thousands of App Widgets available, there wasn’t a date and time display widget that had enough flexibility to meet our customer’s needs. So we developed the Video Kiosk Date and Time Widget.
The Video Kiosk Date and Time Widget is designed to display the Date and Time in the corner of the screen (Widget area D) when Video Kiosk is using split screen mode. You can also use it with or without a background.
Video Kiosk Android Date and Time Widget displays the Date and/or Time in the corner of the screen.
Instructions: How to Configure the Date and Time Widget
To set up the Video Kiosk Date and Time Widget, follow these easy steps:
