    Hello, I admit to joining this forum because I have a specific problem.

    I using three ipads in an exhibition display in the UK. I want to show multiple films on each one and for visitors to select a film from and icon or title very simply displayed. For example jsut the titles, no lengths of time, or the name of the player.
    I want want the users to be able to exit the menu screen or change any settings on the player.
    Anything close to this would be helpful.

    I am mounting the ipads in wooden plinths, so people cant press the button.

    So far the best thing I have come up with is using a video looper and a glass in front of the ipad to stop people touching it.

    I am pretty good at web design and dvd menu production, so if there was a way to store a site or a dvd localy on the ipad and play them full screen that would be perfect for me.

    The films are short pieces made by children for an art exhibition.

    Help!

    Thanks very much

    Dani

    Welcome to the Forum Dani! I have no suggestions for you but there will soon be plenty-->this forum has many members and experiences. I''m reply to keep your note alive and give those members an opportunity to reply to you. I'm thinking you might want to do YouTube clips and have your 3 iPads with each clip? Just a thought....

    I haven't used it personally but how about an app like Kiosk Pro Plus?
