How to make gorgeous screenshots for your app

In the process of building an app, you’re mainly focused on creating the content, building an intuitive user interface, and providing your users with the best possible user experience. All these activities take time and resources, and it’s understandable that after days or weeks of work, you just want to launch the app as soon as possible.

However, once you’re done with creating your app, there’s more work to be done before you can submit the finished product. The most common mistake you can do is to neglect the importance of app screenshots. One of the most common app rejection reasons on App Store is inaccurate description and screenshots – if your app doesn’t clearly and accurately convey and display your app’s functionality, it will be rejected.

App screenshots are the first thing user notice once they access your app page within a given app store., Your screenshots must grab their attention immediately. Gorgeous, visually enhanced screenshots and artwork can make a difference and drive your users towards app downloads.
