See how your version looks like on a real Android Pixel 2
When you want to change metadata on your Play Console, it usually takes time before it appears on the store. Google 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 Android phones with all the specificities of the Google Play 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, short description and description.
If you don’t like your app name or your short description, 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.
💡The Play Store algorithm takes app descriptions into account, so don't forget to use relevant and important keywords in your description to increase your discoverability.
Test new designs in a few clicks
In this section, you can test three metadata, your app icon, screenshots, promotional video and feature graphic. 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 Google’s dimensions and sizes in order to have the same visual as it would be on the store:
App icon: Google requires app icons to have 512 px by 512 px dimensions and can be up to 1MB.
Screenshots: Google requires phone screenshots to have between 320 px and 3,840 px and landscape screenshots need to respect 16:9 aspect ratio. The maximum size is 8MB.
Promo Video: Google requires a Youtube video. The video must be public or unlisted, and ads must be disabled
Feature Graphic: Google requires Feature Graphics to have 1,024 px by 500 px dimensions and can be up to 1MB.
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!

Above all, once you have exceeded the size limit of 200MB, you will see that it can affect drastically your install conversion.
When it comes to ratings, it is always interesting to see how well your app is perceived and how it can be improved. The rating indicator gives you an idea of the amount of daily/weekly/monthly variation needed in order to reach a specific average star rating. This is an evaluation of the efforts and time needed to reach that goal.
