Pros: Play is easy to use and easy to understand. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out other types of digital signage; but Play is very familiar because of its similarity to Powerpoint. So far, I am able to convert most of the powerpoint slides I have to this program and can build on them quite easily. Nice to find something that is easy to use "right out of the box"

Cons: There are a few features that I loose when converting powerpoint files, but its not all that bad. I have to spend alittle time trying to recreate certain effects; but, some of the extra features like adding a time/date, RSS feeds, and websites make up for what I may have lost.

Overall: I create presentations for our health care facility and often I need a lot of flexibilty combined with easy solutions to make quick, entertaining flyers and event promotions that catch the eyes of our residents and their families. Play is making it easy for me to do my thing without having to rack my brain too much on how to do it. Overall, I think they have a great product worth checking out.

Pros: Very easy to use, super intuitive, regular updates with new features - I find myself renewed with excitement for this company and product when something new gets added.

Cons: Organisation - I'm a structured folder guy, sometimes I want to group things up more, but that's a personal preference.

What I have found in my time using playsignage is that the team are usually willing and able to bend over backwards to fulfil the demand in a decent amount of time - features that were missing are now implemented because they listen.

Overall: Able to show logos and metrics on our internal screens across the business, ability to finetune playlist schedule (ie. Only company logo after hours)

Remotely able to update screens across different locations without ever needing to leave my desk.

Pretty much everything we needed to manage my displays

Pros: Our company has a lot of screens across the city and we can run bigger and smaller campaigns depending on the client's needs. Their pricing is pretty flexible. Depending on the size of the campaign we just pay for the screens that we actually use so it helps us optimize our expenses pretty well. I've used it on some indoor events and its pretty nice when you have one hub where you can just control all your screens.

Cons: Was surprised to find it supporting so many languages, including Estonian (which is only spoken by 1 million people), but the UI is still partially English in a few places. Please fix.

Overall: Saves us quite a bit of money and time.

PlaySignage has been a great replacement of PowerPoint for our entry readerboard!

Pros: The software is easy to use, not a lot of extra options to get in the way. I really like having the assets folders so I can update slides from almost any computer.

Cons: I wish there was a way to archive a slide for later use instead of just removing it. I would also like to be able to copy a slide from one playlist to another.

Overall: Parents are kept informed of upcoming events

Pros: Because of running a business, I need to try different kind of softwares. Play degital Signage one of it. It is easy to synchronize with tv and also easy to design content. 1st screen is free(free means totally free without any logo) and for additional display you need to pay. The software has so many free plug in option(weather,instagram,watch & so on)

Cons: I have tried other digital Signage software . All the free version has logo visible on the display. But PLAY one completely free for the 1st screen.

Overall: Attract more customers

Pros: Super easy to use and setup (in comparison to MANY other products in this space) with all the key features you'd need to setup and use a digital signage product.

Cons: - Would love to see an iOS app version for both managing your content and using as a signage display.

- Would love to see some kind of CRM style solution to dynamically manage/update product menus.

Pros: Easy management and edition. Online storage of contents, including conversion of PDFs and presentations. Useful friendly plugins.

Cons: Really I don't know what to say. I only had a problem with one screen that didn't update contents but I reinstalled it and the problem was solved (I guess there was a wifi connection issue, nothing to do with the software).

Overall: I completely solved the management of the screens in my highschool.

Pros: The UI is quite clean and not cluttered and quite intuitive to use, at least for me. It offers a reasonable range of tools to implement the playlist content you would want to. The "get it working" process is quite streamlined, at least on Windows and with one screen. The update propagated to the screen quite quickly. Definitely worth to try out!

Cons: There is room to grow for the features, but the basic tools you would expect are there. So far haven't found any major issues with the product. The UI responsiveness on Firefox was a bit slow, but worked very quickly on Chrome. At the moment can't really say much about the long term stability of the software though.

Excellent for small business thinking of testing out digital signage.

Pros: So easy to set up and start using it. My absolute favourite thing is the support for variety of file types. I can add a video or images (or even a pdf, if you'd like), and won't have to worry about converting anything. It allows me to just concentrate on getting the campaign up and running. Also, you can customise and schedule your playlists as you wish. Whole thing feels quite dynamic and adjustable to my personal needs.

Cons: Two things I would like to see: First - to be able to create grouping for playlists too. Currently I can create screen groups (e.g. by location), but I would like to be able to create groups for my playlists as well (e.g. newcomer offers). Second - allowing websites to be displayed is awesome, but adding some functionality to it (e.g displaying stuff behind login wall) would make it more useful (like displaying analytics)

Hi Yeshuwanth, thanks for the great review - We love happy customers :)

Regarding your mention on the "stuff behind login wall". When adding a website you can add a Javascript (Might need someone to do it for you). This way you should be able to display content that requires a login.

We used PlaySignage to create interactive touch menu for our visitors on an Android tablet.

Pros: The editor is really nice to use. Unlike other digital signage solutions I've tried, the editor enables combining multiple text/video/image elements on a single slide.

Cons: I found creating touch interfaces too difficult - while it's possible, there is a learning curve to it.

Overall: Less time spent on changing content on screens.

Comments: I'm running a few small businesses and Play. has been great for me. It's an easy to use the product and it feels well thought through. Prior to Play. I've tried a few very complicated systems, they were nowhere near as straightforward.

The main editor is incredible, haven't seen anything like it on the internet so far.

It reminded me of PowerPoint, so I could get to designing right away.

On top of that, it seems to be actively developed. The layout keeps improving and I could spot a couple new features being added since I've been using this product.

I include websites and videos in all of my displays. The uptime is great and I had no crashes so far. Thumbs up Play. Signage

The Play Digital Signage software is the most well organized and intuitive software in the market

Pros: You can be productive with the software almost immediately as it is simple to use.

The software is easy to configure in portrait mode which can be a challenge with other signage programs.

The ability to cache and display a webpage

Cons: For my purposes the software isn't missing anything. I would like more animation options, but I understand the company is working on it. If I need complex animation I can simply build it into a webpage and display the page.

Pros: The Play system has met and exceeded our requirements and my expectations. We have 24 player units configured and ready to go when the TVs arrive. Our 4 existing units have been happily up and running since we purchased the product. We did not have a requirement for individual playlist managers when we evaluated products, but now we do and Play has even met that challenge. It is priced very competitively and is exactly what we were looking for. Play has put together an intuitive product that anticipates everything a client could need for broadcasting messaging throughout an organization.

Cons: None. We are very happy with this product.

Pros: I chose 5/5 for value for money because their price, is like other signage software in the market. Plus, if you are looking for a simple-to-design builder, "Play" can be a good choice. They don't put too many extra things inside your dashboard, so you get what you need.

Cons: I would like to see more flexibility in creating new layouts or playlist. Right now it is a bit confusing to create a complete layout without spending time.
