There is a saying that says “Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover” but that problem is, that most prospective customers will judge your app, by its first impression of the App Icon and Screenshots. This article will introduce you to a simple Photoshop template, that will let you create beautiful, simple and quick screenshots for your apps.

As App Developer I love to spend all my time writing code and trying to make my apps run smooth and fast on users devices. And sometimes we just can’t wait to ship our app and get it out to the AppStore or Google Play, that we forget one of the most important things about app marketing which is: “We all want to sell our apps or want as many user as possible to download it”.

The most common mistake we often make, is to not think about the first impression of our app. What we often do is just take 5 in-app screenshots of our main functions and upload them to the AppStore or Google Play, hoping that our users will find them interesting enough. But looking at one Screenshot that show our settings view isn’t that sexy as we think .

To find a simple solution to this issue I asked myself what the main issue is here. And ofc. I’m an App Developer and not an App Designer, and therefor don’t think about how my screenshots look. And if we find the time to do something about it, we often spend hours of trying to create new screenshots from the bottom, each and every time. So what we App Developers need is a simple template that will stop us from uploading boring in-app screenshots and actually create screenshots that will help us to sell more apps.

I got inspired by danish designer Michael Flarup who created App Icon Template, to create a App Screenshot Template with a basic and simple design, that will make your app look more professional.

The idea is to take 5 in-app screenshot, write 2 lines about each screenshot and to present them on a more simple, beautiful and professional way. I got a nice iPhone 5 psd with Flat Design Mockup created by Pixeden. The App Screenshot Template will automatically generate screenshots for the 3.5 and 4 inch retina screens and export your final screenshots into a folder, ready to be uploaded to AppStore or Google Play.
