When you’re done with creating app screenshots, you can export them as PNG files compressed within a ZIP file for free. One more thing, the exported PNG files will include app screenshots for iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
App Screenshot is another amazing website to build stunning app screenshots for App Store. It offers templates for 7 different iPhone models: iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. When you select the device template, it also lets you select the color of the device. For example, you can choose iPhone 5 White, iPhone 6 Black, etc. The available colors are: White, Black, Green, Blue, Yellow, Red (not all colors are available for all the devices). After that, you can choose a custom color for the screenshot background and then proceed to add text caption.
You can type a custom text and then customize it by changing the text color, text font, text size, bold or italic formatting, and position the text at center, left, or right. Currently, it offers 10 different text fonts such as Aller, Exo, Amble, Quicksand, Nobile, etc. You can also choose where you want to place the text caption on the screenshot. For example, you can place the text at the top, at the center, or at the bottom of the screenshot. When you’ve selected all the customization option, you can import an image from PC and then download the resulting app screenshot. It actually sends you a link to your email id for downloading the ZIP file with your screenshots. Another interesting part of this website is that the downloaded ZIP file will include the screenshot in 4 different resolutions: iPhone 3.5, iPhone 4.7 Retina, iPhone 4 Retina, and iPhone 5.5 Retina.
Appscreens.io is another powerful website which you can use to create app screenshots for App Store. The iDevices are limited to iPhone 6 Silver, iPhone 6 Space Grey, iPad Air 2 Silver, and iPad Air 2 Space Grey which you can use for building app screenshots. But, if offers powerful customization like you can add text caption, change text font, text formatting (bold, italic, or regular), text size, and choose any color you want for the text. You can choose from more than 500 text fonts including Lato, Open Sans, Roboto, Slavo, Abel, Oswald, Alike, Antic, Anton, and so on. You can also choose the text caption position either as Top or Bottom of the screenshots.
In addition to that, it lets you change the background of the app screenshots either by selecting a different color, or adding a gradient, and you can even add your own image as the background. This website lets you import 5 images at once and customize them individually before generating the app screenshots. Another interesting thing about this website is that while exporting the screenshots, you can choose more devices like i.e. iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and iPhone 6 Plus. I don’t know why they don’t allow choosing these devices while customizing the screenshots. The output images will be downloaded as PNG files within a ZIP file.
iPhone Screenshot Maker is a simple website which can be used to create app screenshots for App Store with ease. It offers frames for the following devices: Apple Watch, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, and iPhone 6 Plus, iPad, iPad Mini, and Mac. After selecting a frame, it also allows you to choose a screenshot angle among portrait, landscape, sideways, etc. After that, you can customize the screenshot appearance by shadow, reflection effect, overwriting status bar with the frame layout, and choosing a custom size for the output image.
Once you’re done with customization options, you can proceed and import images from your PC. You can import up to 10 images with a maximum size of 2 MB for each image. After that, it will process the image over the select frame and screenshot angle, and then you can download the output image directly as a transparent PNG file. One of the important features that this website lacks is the option for adding text caption. Otherwise, it is a great website for creating app screenshots for App Store. However, if you would like to add text option, then you can build your screenshots using this website and use different online photo editors to do the same.
MockuPhone is quite similar to the website iPhone Screenshot Maker and lets you create app screenshots for App store with different frame angles i.e. portrait, sideways, and landscape. It provides screenshot templates for the following iDevices: iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S Plus, iPad, iPad Mini, and iPad Air 2.

After selecting a template, it will ask you to drag and drop an image or multiple images using which you want to create the app screenshots. When you’re done, simply hit the “Generate Product Mockup” button and it will automatically create the app screenshots with the uploaded images. Then you can feed your email id to get the download link for your screenshots. One of the best features of this app is that you don’t have to manually select the screenshot frame angles, as it will automatically include them in your downloaded ZIP file (if available for the selected device). This website also doesn’t have any native option for adding text caption at the top or bottom of the screenshots.
