If you turned your website into an app with webtoapp.design, it's easy to take screenshots that fulfill all the requirements set by the app stores. Let's first take a look at the requirements and then how you can take screenshots of your app.
The Play Store isn't strict with screenshot requirements:
These requirements are exactly the same for smartphone, 7 inch and 10 inch tablet screenshots.
You can find our solution for automatically taking screenshots of your app in all sizes in your app dashboard. It's relatively low effort, since you just need to enter URLs of the pages you want a screenshot of and our server does the rest. You just need to wait a bit. The downside is that it's less flexible, so it can't scroll on your website, close popups or log in.
If the downsides of our automatic screenshot taking tool are too big in your case try out our manual screenshot tool. As we've mentioned, you need screenshots of your app in use on various devices. On that page you can easily run your app on all those devices in the browser. The only downside is that it takes a lot longer than the automatic screenshot taking. But it's still a lot quicker than buying all those devices and manually installing your app on them.
If you use the "Just Website" layout for your app, you can also take your own screenshots by screenshotting your browser. Here's how to do it in Firefox and Chrome:
Ctrl + Shift + I
⌘ + ⌥ + I (on MacOS)
If you'd like, you can edit the screenshots, e.g. by adding a device frame and additional marketing material. Here's an example from Youtube's app store listing:
Keep these caveats in mind though:
If you don't follow these rules, Apple will reject your app.
Android 13 has been released - apps need to be updated to receive push notifications.
To create the best website to app converter, we're continuously looking for new features to add. Here's how we decide what to build next.
Here's a convenient way to share your app with your website users.
Hi, I'm Jan! I created webtoapp.design in 2019 while studying computer science in university. A lot has changed since then - not only have I graduated, but it's also no longer just me running webtoapp.design. We've grown to a global, fully remote team and have gathered lots of experience around app development and app publishing. We've created and published hundreds of apps in the app stores, where they've been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.
