Whether you need to call a taxi, edit your images in a creative way, or simply make a professional video with your phone on the go, there is always an app which can help you to do it. There are apps for nearly every aspect of our lives, and we hear about the new ones coming out every day. We’ve already lost the count. 

Now, you have created a wonderful application to solve a big problem for your users. You've done all the necessary things and run through the development process to improve the issues. You’ve built an app according to people’s needs which they would be happy to use. Your goal is to find users for it. The challenge here is to not only attract them but also make them download and use your app. 


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 the targeted app description on your app page in the App Store or Play Store. So, showing them your app promo video 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 cool and flexible toolkits, 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 App Promo Toolkit 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.

Video Templates

Choose the Promotional videos category and pick the App Promo Toolkit. The toolkit is designed for four devices - iPhone, Android, laptop, or tablet and is available in three different themes. The duration of your video can be up to 30 minutes, depending on your preferences and content.

Exporting Video

Your project is saved in your Renderforest account, and you can reach it any time by going to “My Videos” page: click on your “Account Name” and choose “My videos” from the drop-down menu.

There are several options for exporting your video. The first one is the free export. You can download or publish SD360 quality videos with a watermark. But, if you want your video to have a higher quality you should choose the paid options.

Renderforest offers 2 types of payment: pay per export and a paid subscription, which includes Free, Amateur, Pro, Business, and Enterprise plans. If you need to create and export many videos, it would be more beneficial for you to subscribe to one of our subscription plans. You can find all the details regarding our pricing here.

Subscription Plans

If you only need one or two videos then the pay per export option would be ideal for you. Here, you are charged for each produced video. The higher your video quality is, the more expensive your videos are. For the highest HD1080 quality videos, you will be charged $29.99 per export, for HD720 you will be charged $19.99 and for HD 360 - $9.99.
