Introducing Weather, News, & Pinterest Apps for Enplug Digital Signage
The Enplug App Market just got bigger. Much bigger.
Today, we are excited to announce the release of a whole new batch of free apps in the Enplug App Market, compatible with any Enplug display. You now have even more ways to engage with your customers through Enplug’s Plug and Play device.
The new apps come in addition to the already existing live social feeds, graphics, and directory apps. Our latest release includes the Enplug Weather app, News app, and a whole bunch of new social apps.
Dynamically inform your visitors of the most current weather conditions and forecast for your location. Forget about checking your phone for the weather, it’s conveniently displayed right on your wall.
The Enplug Weather app allows you to display the current weather conditions for your area, as well as a preview of the most accurate five-day forecast available. Watch as the colors and mood of the live feed change fluidly with the temperature. The Weather app automatically updates every few minutes to ensure that the most current weather is on your display. It’s the perfect addition for any lobby or waiting room.

From your account’s dashboard, select the “Weather” tab to get started. After inputting your current location and preferred temperature scale, your display will automatically update with your location’s conditions.
