It’s a known fact that videos are a powerful way to get your message across. Your potential users can watch your video with high-quality screenshots of your app and read the targeted app description in the App Store or Play Store. So, showing them your app promo video or an app explainer can attract and get their attention better. Before downloading your app, they will clearly understand how it works, what problems it solves, and what interface it has.

With Renderforest’s high-end and flexible templates, you can create stunning videos without limiting your imagination. Let’s have a look at how Renderforest can help you to make a professional and engaging promo video for your app.

In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to use our Modern Mobile App Kit for making your mobile app promotion video.


To edit the template, you need to sign up or sign in to the platform, if you have an account. After you sign in, go to our Video Templates library.
