With the Screenshot Builder, you now have the ability to choose, customize, and design which app screenshots go into both your Google and Apple app store pages. 

 

Features:

  • Screenshots for Different Mobile Views (Phone and Tablet)
  • Different App Scenarios (Learn, Lesson, Discover, and Product Page)
  • Adding Captions
  • Color Theme/Picker

 

To create your screenshots, follow the steps below:

1. log in to your Passion.io account.

2. Go to the Sales Channels section and select the Enable Your Screenshot Builder option under "3. App Details".

3.  Enable the Screenshot Builder, then go into each section (Learn, Lesson, Discover, Product) and customize them from there.

4. Select the PREVIEW type you would like for your screenshots. Next you can select the SCENARIO that you'd like to use as a screenshot image for your first screenshot. You will have 4 options. You can then choose which Mobile Device Template to use for the first screenshot and then choose the Caption placement that will go into your app screenshot.

Note: Lesson Screenshots. The system automatically takes a screenshot of the content from the first lesson. If it's a video, the workaround is to add a still image on the first few seconds of the video, so that it will show up instead of a black screen. 

5. Once you are done editing your screenshots you can now Publish your apps. Please allow 1 hr for the updated screenshots to appear in the app stores. 

Note: Always submit the newest version of your App with the adjustments in the Screenshot Builder so your Screenshots will be up to date.
