How to exit the ScreenCloud Player app on Amazon/Android devices

With the 3.0.x version and up of our ScreenCloud player app for Amazon and Android devices as of August 2019, we changed the way users exit the app. Previously, you could exit the app by pressing the back button or pressing the home button, but now things are a bit different.

To exit the app, you need to press the back button twice or open the settings side menu and select the "Exit player" button. Please note, if you press the home button or stop the app from running the app will restart after a few seconds.


Why was this update pushed to the app?

This change brings our app more in line with the experience of other Android apps that are designed with additional steps to exit the app. This helps protect against a variety of scenarios where the system, device or an accidental press on the remote may exit the app, which is something you won't want to happen to your digital signage.
