Some uplifting reviews for my apps

So from time to time I login to the play store to read some reviews about my apps Battery Temperature Guard or my Baby Names App. It is fun to read the reviews and get some good feedback. I even get new ideas for features sometimes.

I just wanted to share some reviews which where really uplifting.

Best battery monitor I have tested many battery temp monitor apps but this is the best. The graphs are great and the alerts that are based on a certain temp that you specify will even alert you if your device has been silenced (if you choose). The developer is super response and a pleasure to work with if necessary. Just a great app for what it was intended to do.

A must have By phone gamers like me.... Plays a alarm ( or vibrates ) when your specified overtemp is reached. Now i know when to let it cool down (or not if i want to finish game and use more battery quickly). Very low memory usage too. Can even watch battery cool down in "live view". 

Just what I needed! Simple, low on resourses, showing battery temperature in status bar! Great! 

 La recomiendo.100% Buenísima app. de temp. del cel. Tu escojés los parametros de temp. Tiene alarma muy bueno para avisar , y mucho mas. Si le das mucha flama al cel. Esta es tu mejor opción . Lo mejor , "es gratis". Muchas gracias por tan excelente app.

5 Sterne - absolut verdient, denn jetzt gefällt mir die App zu 100% ! Und wenn Wünsche und Anregungen ernst genommen und umgesetzt werden, lässt man sich noch leichter zu einer positiven Bewertung hinreißen. Echt super ! 

Ez rohadt jó! GRAT! Hogy eddig ez senkinek nem jutott eszébe, és látszik hogy a fejlesztő tényleg hasznos alkalmazást akart csinálni, nincs hozzáférése az app nek pl mikrofon galéria fiókok stb mint a többi gyanús gagyi szarnak. Inkább ki adok érte pénzt de lássam hogy a fejlesztő korrekt és foglalkozik az általa ki adott termékkel épp úgy mint itt! Thanks! 

Does what it says on tin Great app, works with all my devices, helps it keep cool when the devices get hot, also love the high and low temp history reading! Everyone download this app now!!! :)

How to create an android promotion video of your app

If you want to market your android app you have to create a cool promotion video for your app. You can link this video in the play store entry. This way more users will be attracted to your app. Creating such a promotion video is quite easy. All you need to have is some time and a few tools I will introduce to you.
I am not a professional promotion video creator, but I have already created a few videos for my app. Here is a small promotion video for my app Battery Temperature Guard for android. And this is a video for the temperature widget of the same app.

Screencast your android app

The first step is to create some screencasts of your android app. This means you have to film what is happening on your screen. The best free tool to do this is SCR Screen Recorder Free. It is a great tool to simply create videos of your app. Check this article how to use SCR and gain root on your device. On the screenshot below you can see the SCR widget. By clicking the orange button, it will disappear and create a video of your screen.

The SCR widget is ready

Create your android promotion video

Now you have a bunch of videos you want to merge to a cool promotion video. I would recommend you to use the Microsoft Movie Maker. It is a simple tool to create/cut/annotate videos and images.
To use your screencast video inside the Movie Maker, you have to convert it using Free Video Converter. This tool is free. Add your video to the list and set the settings according to my screenshot below. Hit "convert" to convert the videos and wait a little bit.

Now start the Movie Maker and drop the converted video into the app. It will take some time for Movie Maker to read the video. Here you can see a screenshot of me creating a video on how to configure the widget textsize of my app battery temperature guard.

Loading the promotion video

You will notice, that the video is rotated and not as you want it to be. To change the rotation of the current selected video, tap on the small icon I have marked on this screenshot.

Fixing the rotated video is simple

Customize your promotion video

Now you can start to edit your video. Add some text annotations, cut the video, slow some parts down, add some music and many many more. When you are done, you can export the video. I prefer full hd quality :)

Upload your android promotion video to youtube and add some cool music

Cool music will make your video appear cooler. Inside youtube you can add free music to your video. Click through some songs to find something smooth for your promotion video.

After you uploaded and modified the video, you can add it to your blog like this:
