Besides all of the text tool basics, you expect like sizing, color, line height, and shadows, we also provide several font options. Don’t see one you like? Upload any font of your choice!
The editor gives you many of the options you might need for your uploaded photos. Resize, crop, rotate, and even change the positioning or transparency of your images all within the editor.
The editor offers a huge arsenal of tools for you to use when designing content. The cropping tools lets you resize images as-well as cropping them and/or removing parts you don’t need.
Every slide have their own individual settings - you can set stuff like duration, pick a animated transitions and muck more.
Create graphics or enhance your text with a collection of shapes, symbols, emojis, and icons pre-loaded into the editor.
Upload your own videos from storage to play on your screen. You can adjust the alignment, positioning, and whether or not you want sound, too.

We want you to create beautiful content and to do that you’ll need tools like the ones you recognize from Powerpoint, Notes, and other presentations software. We give you tools like text editor, shapes, emoticons, images and photos, and much more. Go to sign up and try it out yourself.

You might find it useful that you can plan targeted content during the morning, something entirely different throughout the day, and something targeted again in the afternoon. You can easily figure out how your schedules define the content on the screens using our timeline – It’s a live tool that will tell you what is going on right now and in the future.
