Nokia has gone to great lengths to make it easy for developers to create promotional materials for their Windows Phone apps. This quick video shows you how to do it.

Steps to make your own

  5. Select a language
  6. Click “Continue”

On the next page:

  1. Select a category
  2. Make sure the app name is correct
  3. Click “Continue”

On the next page, you can choose the words that get displayed during the video, choose the adjectives that best describe your app’s user experience.

  1. Select all three words for your app
  2. Select the screenshot you want to be in the video
  3. Choose the music you want in the video
  4. Click “Preview Video”

You’ll be brought to the preview page. If you want to change something, you can go back and alter your choices.
