You can configure the app using the following properties:

Show what messages? (Only when style is set to "Callout" or "Polaroid") Configure what messages should be shown every time the app is shown again:
  • All recent (rotating): starting from the oldest available message, it always advances to the next message. When the newest is reached, it starts with the oldest again, unless a newer one becomes available.
  • Latest: always only show the latest message
  • Latest - 1: always only show the second to latest message
  • Latest - X: etc.

  • Callout: a single message at a time as a callout bubble, without image
  • Polaroid: a single message at a time as a strip with a polaroid image (when an image is included)
  • Social wall: a collection of messages spread across multiple columns, including images (when an image is included)
  • Big picture/video: a single message underneath a big photo or video ("Instagram-style").
Number of columns (Only when style is set to "Social wall") The number of columns to fill with messages.
Background color palette (Only when style is set to "Social wall") Choose up to three different colors to have the app randomly choose as background color of the individual messages. Also see our tips section about selecting and entering colors.

And finally there are a number of generic app properties that you can configure that you'll find on many other elements as well.
