How to take screenshots for google play?

If you plan to publish your application to Google Play, you will be required to take at least two screenshots of your application.



Getting setup to take screen shots for the first time on older versions of Android was a pain, but as of Android 4.X it got much easier. Now you don’t need to install anything onto your computer instead you just need to press a few buttons:

  1. Press and hold the Power button and the Volume-Down button at the same time.
  2. After a few seconds your screen will flash and you will see something like the following:
  3. Now you can access the screen shot via the notifications or using the Gallery app. The screenshots are located within the “Screenshot” album.

    Gallery App:


  4. Email yourself the image if you want to access it on your desktop computer.

    PS: Other things you need:

    A Large App Icon

    You will probably need a 512×512 version of your app icon, and in some app stores a smaller version as well.

    A description of your app

    Each app store will require you to describe your app to potential users. You app description should explain what your app does, and contain related keywords so that search queries will find you app. Be wary of lying or doing any “keyword stuffing” as both have the possibility of getting your app banned from that particular app store. Google Play is especially sensitive to this.

    Also pay special attention to the first sentence in your description. This is often the only part potential users will see on their mobile phone, so make it count.
