I could have sworn I wrote a blog post about this before, but I couldn’t seem to find it? So I just wanted to make sure to jot this information down for my own personal reference, or maybe to help someone else out there on the internet. So without further ado: How to Make App Store Screenshots for Your React-Native App
Okay, so here’s the deal. For all of the other non-screenshot related graphics you need for your App Store or Play Store listing, just use Canva.com. But for the actual fake phone app screenshots, use Previewed.app. With Previewed, they give you a really nice template to start with, you can select the fake phone you want, then add your screenshots and put them in your fake phone. Add heading text, etc. etc.
Oh but wait! So how do you get the screenshots of your app into Previewed? I know it’s 2021 and there should be a better way of doing this, but here’s what I do… I simply run the app on my iPhone or Android phone, then take a screenshot of the app like I would take any other screenshot. And last, I email the screenshot to myself. Then I open my email on my laptop, download the screenshot, then upload the screenshot to Previewed.
Seriously? Yes seriously. I’m still using email to send files from my phone to computer and you should too!
