Screenshots are a key aspect of your app listings. In both the App Store and Google Play, you will select featured screenshots to give prospective users an idea of the functionality your app contains.
This article provides information on the optimal screenshot dimensions for different devices and some useful tips for taking and uploading screenshots for your app.
- iPhone 4: 640x960px
- iPhone 5: 640x1136px
- iPhone 6: 750x1334px
- iPhone 6 Plus: 1242x2208px
- Tablet: 1536x2048px
These screenshots are uploaded in the Publish Step, where we grab them during the iOS upload process. Since they cannot be changed without an update after the app goes live, it is crucial your screenshots are exactly as you would like them when you publish your app.
Different Ways of Taking Screenshots
- Preview Apps:
The simplest way to grab screenshots; you can just load the preview on your device and snap your shot, then email them to yourself or use the Dropbox app.
Under the Screen Shots section of the Publish Step, just click the Generate button, and our screenshot tool will take 3 screenshots per device size for you. You do not need to wait around for them to load—just check back later to see your newly created screenshots.
Note: If you have a Membership Tab enabled, be sure to uncheck the Require Login Credentials box before generating screenshots, or the Screenshot Tool will not be able to proceed past the login screen.
The In-dashboard preview is also an easy way to take screenshots. However, like previewyourapp.com, this software is powered by a third party and thus less reliable than the first two options above.
