See how your version looks like on a real iPhone X
When you want to change metadata on your Apple Console, it usually takes time before it appears on the store. Apple has to review those changes and if you don’t like the end-result, then you have to go through another validation process which is very time consuming.
Thanks to our tool, you can see how your app page looks like on a real phone in a couple of clicks. The phone simulator will display all your info on one of the latest Apple iPhones with all the specificities of the Apple App Store. This way, you can be sure you will see exactly what users will see.
We made sure that the specificities in terms of alignments, screenshots sizes, and all the different phone behaviors.
Analyze your App Texts with our testing tools
The first section is dedicated to App Texts. Here, you can test your app name, subtitle, promotional text and description.
If you don’t like your app name or your subtitle, you can try another one. You will see that it directly changes on the phone preview so that you can judge the end result by yourself.
For each metadata, you can look at the previous version so that you can get inspired or, on the other hand, don’t reproduce what you already tried.
While testing new versions, make sure that the keywords you use don’t refer to big apps, directly appearing in the search results. In order to do that, as soon as you have entered new keywords, you will see live search results based on them.
The last metadata you can test in this section is the app description. For this one, we added a density table to help you understand which keywords are the most repeated ones and how often they appear compared to the total number of words. To go a step further, once you have written your new description, you can compare your keywords density between your app’s new version and its current one. We will show you for each repeated keyword, how the density changed so that you can measure the impact of your changes.
💡Descriptions are not taken into account in the Apple App Store algorithm. However, don’t forget to add important and relevant keywords in your description to improve your iTunes app page and optimize your SEO. It is essential to find the best way to entice and convince App Store users of downloading your app.
Test new designs in a few clicks
In this section, you can test three metadata, your app icon, screenshots and video. As a result, you can add new visuals and see how it looks once it is on the app store.
You simply have to upload an image to see the end result. AppTweak allows you to upload any size so that you are not limited and can test as many combinations as possible. However, we advise you to keep Apple’s dimensions and sizes in order to have the same visual as it would be on the store:
App icon: For iPhone 6.5” display, Apple requires app icons to have 1024x1024 dimensions.
Screenshots: For iPhone 6.5” display, Apple requires portrait screenshots to have 1242x2688 or 1284x2778 dimensions and landscape screenshots to have 2688x1242 or 2778x1284 dimensions
App preview: Apple requires App previews to be in M4V, MP4, or MOV format and can’t exceed 500 MB.
However, you will see that we reproduced the exact same app store subtleties when it comes to screenshots and videos such as:
if you have already uploaded portrait screenshots, Apple will convert landscape screenshots into portrait
If you upload a video in landscape format but then uploads portrait screenshots:
Finally, if you need to reorganize your screenshots to see which order works best, don’t forget that you can drag and drop your screenshots!

On Apple devices, you have the ability to switch to "dark mode" for its general interface.
