App Launchpad is a powerful website which can be used to build stunning app screenshots for Google Play Store. This website comes with the following 5 screenshot templates: Full Device, Caption Below, Full Device Caption Below, Caption Above, and Full Device Caption Above which you can use for your app screenshots. When you’re done choosing a template, you can go ahead and select a device among Nexus 5x and Nexus 6p. The Nexus 6p model is available in Black color only, whereas, you can choose Black, Cally White, Darb White, Darb Black, Tricia White, and Tricia Black for the Nexus 5x model. When you’re all set with the template and a device, you can import up to 5 app images and then customize them individually.
For each screenshot, you will be able to choose a different template, add text caption at the top or bottom, change text color, text font, text weight, text size, and also select different background colors for the screenshots. There are 14 beautiful text fonts which you can use for adding text caption including Georgia, Tahoma, Impact, Times, Arial, Verdana, etc. It also offers 10 predefined color filters, which can be applied to the screenshots for making them more impressive. At last, you can download the app screenshots as PNG images and use them on Google Play Store.
App Screenshot is another useful website to create app screenshots for Google Play Store. It provides 7 different screenshot templates of the following Android devices: Galaxy 3, HTC One Black, HTC One White, Nexus 4, Nexus 5 Black, Nexus 5 White, and Nexus 6. You can choose any of the devices and then proceed to customize your app screenshots. First, you can select your favorite background color using the universal color picker. After that, you can add a text title (caption) to the screenshot by typing anything in the text input field.
This website also allows you to completely customize the text caption by changing the text size, text formatting (bold or italic), text font, text color, and more importantly the alignment of the text (left, center, or right). Apart from that, you can also select the position of the text caption either by placing it at the top, bottom, or center of the screenshot. To make your screenshots look more stunning, you can choose from 10 different fonts (Exo, Nobile, FiraSans, Aller, Quicksand, etc) for the text caption. After you’re done with customization, simply upload your image to the website and generate a beautiful app screenshot. You can export the screenshot as a ZIP file by feeding your email id, as it sends you an email with the download link.
Appscreens.io is a free website that lets you make great-looking app screenshots for Google Play Store. It comes with powerful customization tools but offers only a single Android device template i.e. Google Nexus 6 which can be used for creating app screenshots. Similar to the website App Launchpad, this one also allows you to import 5 images at once and then customize the screenshots individually. Remember, the ideal resolution of the app’s images should be 1080×1920 px for getting a better result. You can customize the screenshots by adding a text caption, choose different text formatting (regular, italic, or bold), text font, change text color, and also select different text sizes.
The best part of this website is that it offers 500+ fonts which you can use for text caption such as Slabo, Lato, Alike, Roboto, Anton, Belleza, Bayon, Abel, etc. As per your app screenshots requirement, you can also position the text caption either at the bottom or top of the app screenshots. Additionally, you can also customize the screenshot background by adding a gradient, color, and you can also set any image as the background. Once you’ve done importing images and customizing the screenshots, simply hit the “Generate Appscreens” button to download the screenshots on your PC. The resulting app screenshots will be downloaded as PNG files.
MockuPhone can also be used to generate app screenshots for Google Play Store. It offers screenshot templates for various Android devices: Nexus 4, Nexus 5x, Nexus 6p, Nexus 9, Moto G, Moto E, HTC One M8, HTC One A9, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S Duos, Samsung Galaxy Y, and Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Some of these devices also come with color variants like you can choose White, Silver Titanium, Gold, Pink, and Black for Samsung Galaxy Note 5, or Black, Gold, Silver for HTC One M8, etc. You will be able to check the color of the devices by simply hovering your mouse cursor above the device templates.
After selecting a device, you can import multiple images which will be added to the app screenshots. One of the best features of this website is that it can generate app screenshots in portrait, 1 angle view, and in landscape mode (if supported by the selected device model). While testing this website, I have found only a single shortcoming that is it doesn’t have any option to add a text caption to the screenshots. Otherwise, this website is great for generating beautiful app screenshots for Google Play Store. Finally, when you’re ready to use the app screenshot, you can simply feed your email id to receive the download link of the ZIP file with screenshots. You don’t have to manually choose the device orientation, as all the supported orientations will be automatically included in the ZIP file.
Device Art Generator is actually a web tool offered by the official “Android Developers” website. Using this tool, you will be able to generate app screenshots for Google Play Store in a flash. For this, all you got to do is drag any image into the available device frames and then it will automatically place the image within the device template and generate a beautiful app screenshot. The available devices are Android Wear, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10. Another useful feature of this website is that you can create screenshots in both portrait and landscape mode.
Apart from letting you create app screenshots, this web tool doesn’t have any other customization options. However, you can add a shadow and screen glare before downloading the resulting image. You can also rotate the app screenshots clockwise or anti-clockwise before exporting. Similar to the website MockuPhone, Device Art Generator also has no option to add text caption but if you want to add one, then you can download the app screenshot and use any of the online photo editors to do the same. To download the output image, all you need is a click on the preview template and it will be downloaded automatically as a PNG file.
My Final Verdict:
You might know that the app screenshots play a major role in grabbing more users’ attention and ultimately increase app downloads. So, go ahead and try any of these websites to make beautiful screenshots for your apps on Google Play Store. Personally, I like all the websites as the resulting app screenshots generated by these websites looks amazing and ready to be published on Google Play Store.
