Once the screenshots are done, it's time to dive into another ASO part — product page or feature graphics. The app screenshots' sequence, combination, and the set will tell your brand's story and visually communicate with your audience.
It's not mandatory to use the device's mockups; you can also use just the screen image. It's up to you and your brand identity to create the best marketing materials to present and promote your App.
