Put the most important part of your description at the very top because only the first three lines are visible, and most people won’t read the rest.Use all three lines and tell your readers exactly what they need to know, without any marketing hype.


If possible, try to include a credibility factor in these first three lines. Mention awards, major press, or any other achievements. Even a short user testimonial can work here.

3. Features

After the first three lines, list the main benefits of the app. List these main features with a a short title followed by a short description. Putting your feature titles in CAPITAL letter will make them more readable.

4. Seasonal Promotions

In your feature list, you might want to add any seasonal promotions first and put app disclaimers last.


End your description with links to your social media channels and your contact details. End it with a call to action – invite your user to contact you with any feedback and questions.

6. Proofread
