    im an apple person, but wife's company has a large video display screen which they have no instructions for.

    it runs on android and I managed to force quit and then delete the proprietary software so I am left with an android OS and not much else.

    basically I want to just put a folder with jpegs and have it run a slideshow, and ideally be able to easily add more files to it.

    whats the easiest way of doing this, ideally free, not because im worried about paying for an app but rather I don't want to have to use my own google account on it.

    thanks for any advice

    is this really difficult? another site said google photos, and it will do it like half a second a photo blurr.

    surely its not difficult.

    You can obtain apk files outside of play store and load them

    Just find the appropriate free app

    bumping this as I'm still struggling. I get that I can move the apk app onto a memory stick but cant find an app that will do just this and is free. apparently newer android apps have screen savers built in but this is old.
