      Hi Dev Axe! smile

      I think you can use the screeshots, but mention it in your source that these are taken by you. You can use videos too, if they are yours or someone else's on YouTube. It's fine.

      I hope this helps.

      You have to be careful of violating copyright, so check with the app/game's creator/owner before assuming it's okay. They'll probably love it that you asked, and you may be able to establish a good working relationship with them regarding future products.

        Thanks, this a sounds much safe process. But isn't a snapshot of some app, taken on my device, is not my property?

          Nope. The image - the artwork, belongs to its creator/owner. Would it be okay if I took a photo of another (copyright) photo and republished it?

          No, it wouldn't.

      Me too. Actually, they don't make any content of their own and make easy money.
