'Fast Food Order Display' App is designed for take-away restaurants, Cafes & coffee shops.

and if you have a Food Truck, we suggest you buy an Android Tablet with SIM card, for Internet access

This app will display all drinks & food items together on each Android kitchen display tablet.

  • (If you need to separate order line items by different kitchen preparation areas,
  • I.e. Only display selected items (Pizzas) or (Hot food) or (Hot drinks) on the Tablet in that preparation area,
  • then see , our 'Restaurant Live Orders' app
  • This app will display items very fast, instantly on Kitchen Tablet, as soon as item is entered on Clover Register.
  • Enquiries to


Choice of two display APKs: We recommend you download APK Download2

  • Notes below explain differences between the two APK versions.

'Fast Food Order Display' App has two versions for download above:

APK Download 2 is the fastest version, because we removed some 'filters':

  • APK2 does not show Order types (Dine-In, Take-away etc)

  • Does not show quantites (3) of same items on one line.
  • APK2 does not have action button (Done) on each line.


Both APK2 & APK1 versions have a [Done] button on top line to mark all lines of that order as 'Completed'


APK-1 Download is also fast, but will show added details, including:

  • Order types (Dine-in, Take-away),
  • Quantities (3) of same items on one line.
  • Separate action [Done] button per line item.

To decide which is best for your store, you are welcome to a 30-day free trial.

We recommend 'APK Download2' (Two):For very busy take-away stores

and if you do not need to show Order Types  [Dine-In, Take-away, Delivery], the APK-2 is the one to download


To show name-or-text on top line [ John Smith ]  below:

  • go to Clover dashboard "Set-up" --> "Order Receipts", select  "Manually enter text-no"


App display settings. Choose "Open orders only", or "Open & Completed" views.

On 'Completed Orders' view, you can tap on a Completed order to get pop-up as above, to mark it as 'Delivered'.

That moves Completed order off the display view.



The default setting will be (O) All 'Open-Saved' & 'Paid' Orders:

  • Display will show 'open' line items as they are entered in Clover


If you want your kitchen to only work on orders that are paid for,

Choose  (O) Only Display 'Paid' Orders,    


APK1: Does extra filtering, which takes extra processing time:

  • Shows Order Type (Dine-in, Take-away, Delivery)
    • Can also have order types (Sales counter) & (Drive-thro)
  • Has action button (Done) or (In Progress) on each line item
  • Shows ( 3 ) Quantity by identical items



To show Order types, Dine-In or Sit-In, Take-Away, Delivery on top of order items,

see FAQ no 14: Clover Set-up, create Order types.


The App works only on Android Tablets. (Does not work on PCs-Laptops nor I-Pads).

App connects each Android tablet, via the Cloud-Internet, to your Clover orders account.

The APK2 version works on most Android Tablets.

Some merchants reported issues with tabets on APK1 installs. Can resolve by doing a factory reset on tablet.

One monthly fee per merchant account covers all display Tablets at that restaurant-kitchen.

The Tablet displays replace the need for Kitchen printers & saves ongoing cost of ticket printer ribbons & paper rolls.

APK1 version: Alerts for 'New Order' or 'Due Now' when time since order placed on Clover equals 'Preparation Time',

the alert will sound & the words 'Due Now' will appear on top, if that Order is still 'Open', not 'Done'.

Allow kitchen Tablet to scan the QR barcode (which is viewing on other Web-browser device).

For [Connect QR]  there are two steps.

[5.2 & 5.3] Scan QR Barcode using Tablet.

5-1  Open Clover merchant online account using any browser device, PC, Laptop or a 2nd Tablet.

On App Market, using Web-browser, open "Installed Apps", select 'Fast Food Orders Display' & select [Launch].

Browser screen opens to our support page & displays a QR (barcode) Activation code.

(This QR barcode screen view is needed to Sign-in kitchen display-Tablet, Steps 5-2 & 5-3 below )


5-2 Using the kitchen Android display Tablet, download APK File.

(APK is an application program which runs display App on Androif Tablet)

Using a 'Firefox' browser on kitchen Android Tablet, open URL,

Click [Yes] when screen asks permission.

Select ‘Install’ & ‘Open’, & follow notes below, Step 5-3 ( Sign-In).


5-3 To 'Sign-in' Tablet first time, by scanning QR Barcode.

When you select [ Connect with QR ] button, the Tablet scanner (Camera) automatically opens. 


Each Clover account [Launch] will generate it's own unique [App Activation barcode].

Example below is for RetailCP's own test account & will be of no use for our customers.


Point Tablet back camera-scanner at the QR Barcode on screen of other browser device in 5-1 above.

Within seconds of scanning the QR (barcode) activation code,

he kitchen-display Tablet will confirm  'Congratulations. You are Connected'. 

See 5-5 below, then note 6. Settings, before you can view your Clover orders. 


5-4  Alternative method to 'Connect' first time is to 'Log in' using Clover account email & password

This option [Connect] will only work on some Android Tablets. ( Sure way to 'Connect' is 5-1, 5-2 & 5-3 above.)

If when you select [Connect] & your Tablet succesfully opens URL to Clover authentication URL,

where your screen view as below, then Sign-in with Clover owner 'user' & 'password' credentials.

When correct email & password credentials are verified by Clover,

Tablet will 'Connect' to your Clover station order details. See 5-5.


5-5. Tablet is Connected.

Select (OK). See note 6. Settings, to ensure display screen will obtain orders from Clover-station.


6. Settings on each display screen-Tablet

First time to use 'Fast Food Orders Display' on a Tablet, go to Settings, '3 dots' top-right of screen

You can name each Tablet as you wish.

Can set 'Refresh Rate' to minimum 10-seconds, and up to maximum of 12-minutes.

Each refresh shows [Please wait] for a second on screen. We think 30-seconds is a good refresh speed.

The Refresh rate determines how often App looks for new & updated Clover orders. 


7. Choose ( A) for 'Open view' only & [Done] button to complete & remove items from display.

Choose ( B ) if Waiter, or 2nd 'Finishing' area needs to view Completed Orders.

Can toggle between Open & Completed Views.

Kitchen staff can select 'In Progress' when works starts on an 'Open' Order, 

or can skip & select [Done] button to move items  to 'Completed' view.


Kitchen or Waiter mark completed orders as 'Delivered' to move off display view.

[a] Press Line [DELIVERED] button above, to move one line only off [Completed] view,


[b] tab order anywhere, & screen pops-up as below.

Select [Delivered] button on that pop-up, to move all order items off the [Completed] display screen.


Status of orders is available instantly to kitchen & servers-waiters & bar staff. 

The Clover station 'Orders' lists the status on each line item as 'open' if kitchen have not started,
or 'In Progress', 'Completed' or 'Delivered'.  App provides clear communication.
For manual refresh, toggle between 'Open' & 'Completed’ & ‘Open’.

8-1  Time Limit before an Order is 'Overdue' or 'DUE NOW'  

Each Restaurant will specify their own ‘Preparation Time’ or ‘Time Limit’. Example above.

If an order is not started '6 minutes' since entered on Clover, we highlight Order as "DUE NOW".


For default setting (All 'Open-saved & paid orders), displays all orders, including 'not-yet-paid'.

We start to display order items, after next 'refresh' & before order is 'Paid' on Clover.

This allows kitchen or Barista to start on order items immediately. Will suit fast food & Coffee shops.


Setting 'Only Paid Orders' is when kitchen only start on an order, after it is 'paid' on Clover.

For this setting {Only Paid Orders}, you can change 'Refresh rate' to 10-seconds,

if 30-secs is not fast enough for your kitchen.


8-2  'Maximum Order Age' will only display orders back to that time.

Default starts at 45-minutes, then 2-hours, increasing to 12-hours.

App will not display any orders older than the 'maximum order age', you set.

If set to 45-minutes, then orders started more than 45-mins will not be displayed.

(We recommend 45-mins as 'Max' for fast food).


8-3  Default is to show Oldest orders from Left to Right, as above.

Setting can be changed & 'Saved' to show newest orders from left.


8-4  On older APK-1 version, the 'Qty-sort' can be switched Off.

That will reduce work to-do & should help Tablet-App to process 'Done' button faster.

Our notes above recommend to switch from APk-1, to use new 'faster' APK-2.
