Have you ever wanted to add a button (or “badge”) to your website to download a mobile app but thought it looked too much like hard work? Fortunately, both Apple and Google make this process easy with iOS and Android app online badge maker tools.
iTunes Link Maker
The iTunes Link Maker lets you create links or badges that link to content on any Apple web property, including the App Store.
To create a download badge for your app, first select “iOS Apps” from the Media Type dropdown and then enter the name of your app in the search field.
From the list of results, click on the iPhone or iPad icon for your app. This brings up a page which gives you options for linking with a large or small button or with text only.
Google Play Badges
To create a badge that links to your app on Google Play you need to follow a similar process. Google also offers an online badge making tool, so it’s not too difficult to do. Scroll down through the list of dos and don’ts to view the online badge generator.
Simply browse to your app in the Google Play Store, copy the URL, and paste it into the Play Store URL field in the badge maker form.
You’ll then be given the option to copy the HTML to embed the badge into your page, or to download the badge as an image. Here’s how it looks:
Mobile App Screenshot Generator
Need to create some screenshots to promote your app? Google offers a handy online tool for making your app screenshots display inside a Nexus device.
Apple does not offer an equivalent service, although FrameApp appears to do the same for a range of iOS and Android devices, and PlaceIt works similarly but embeds your screenshot within a stock photo that includes a smartphone or tablet device.
