The following apps are no longer available for the ScreenCloud Studio platform but can continue to be used in ScreenCloud Signage as a native app. Though these can be used in ScreenCloud Studio with a URL or link, please click here for the instructions in Section 2. Some of the mentioned apps below run by copy and pasting the URL into ScreenCloud Signage using the "Add Website" function.
