Create awesome screenshots using Device Frame Generator

Famous app developers must present their art some way. Basiclly, if the dev creates an application, he puts it to Google Play to publish it. That's not all, though. The author must describe the app, mostly in screenshots. These screenshots must not be meaningless and should be representative and just nice. But how to make such a good screenshot, then?

If you watch regularly some kickstarts or new devices introduction, you can see the certain device is strangly photographed. Let's take an example:

If you watch closely, you see the device has got nice shadows and it's not just naturally photographed from somewhere. Looks like someone's used something to make a photo to look like this.

Let's head to the app (at last). The app's name is Device Frame Generator and it can make an art from your ordinary screenshot. With this app, you will definitely do the best themed screens.

But how to handle with this app?
It's more than easy. Well, you probably know (almost) every phone has got different size of the screen. If you want to make a frame for Galaxy S4, you have to take a screenshot with S4. If you're about to do this with your Nexus 7, you gotta use your Nexus 7 unless you manually edit the size.

How does it work?
It works really simple. As you can see on the pictures below, there are empty frames for various devices. To fill the frame with your screenshot, just take it and do so. It's easy as a pie.

You are now able to do a bunch of cool screens by a single click such as this one:

App is available on Google Play store for about 1$.

Get it on Google Play (small)

I don't wanna pay..

If you don't want to pay for this app, you can easily create a frame without paying also - Google Developer site offers a free device generator for following devices:

  • Nexus 7 (2012/13)
  • Nexus 4
  • Nexus S
  • Galaxy Nexus
  • Nexus 10
  • Motorola XOOM

Using the web version is also simple. Just drag&drop the image (right sized) and the generator will do the magic.
