Once you've created an account your first project is automatically created for you. You can create a new project by clicking on the Project name and selecting "New Project" from the drop-down menu.
Is LaunchMatic free?
It's free to create an account and design your screenshots, but you have to pay if you want to export the finished screenshots as PNGs.
How much does LaunchMatic cost?
You are only charged when you export your finished screenshots. A single export costs $5, and is the FULL collection of screenshots per device and per language.
For instance, if you export screenshots for iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 11 Pro Max only in English, then you will pay $10 for both. If you decide to translate both devices from English to Japanese and Spanish, then it will cost you an additional $5 for each language.
02. Designing Screenshots in the Editor
How do I add multiple devices to a Project?
By default all supported devices are added to a new Project. This means that any changes that you make will be applied to all other devices.
You can view all devices by clicking on the device drop-down menu from the Canvas. This will let you preview and device(s) that you want to see.
How do I add my app screens to a device template?
Once you have uploaded your app screens for the device(s) you want to design screenshots for, simply select a screenshot template and click on the app screen you want to upload from the left sidebar. The screen should instantly appear in the template.
You can click on the screen again to remove it, or click on another screen to replace it.
How come I don't see my uploaded screens?
Your app screens will only appear for the device that you uploaded them for. This helps with the visual quality, as app screen resolutions (aspect ratios) differ between devices.
You can upload a single device's app screens for ALL devices, but expect them not to fit.
Where are earlier iOS devices?
iOS devices such as the iPhone X (5.8"), iPhone 7 Plus (5.5"), iPhone 8 (4.7"), iPad 2nd Gen (12.9"), etc are not supported in LaunchMatic. This is due to the fact that they are not required for submission to the Apple App Store.
iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPad Pro 3rd Generation are all required devices that the App Store scales down for other devices. This means that, even if you app works for ALL iOS devices, you only need to design for these 3.
03. Exporting Your Screenshots
How do I export my screenshots?
When you are finished designing, click on the Export button at the top right of the screen. This will take you to the Export page, which lets you select which device(s) you want to export.
Once you have made your selection, you will need to pay. Once payment is complete, a compressed file will download directly from your browser with a folder for each device you selected.
Does it cost money to export screenshots?
Yes, it costs $5 per screenshot "Set" you export. A Set is unique to the device and language you selected.
Selecting multiple languages for a single device is the same as multiple screenshot Sets.
What file format are screenshots exported as?
Currently all screenshots are exported as PNGs.
I see a mistake after I exported. Do I need to pay to export again?
Currently, yes. If you're having trouble please reach out via our Contact Us page and we can sort it together :)
