Apple today announced new tools (opens in new tab) that are designed to make it easier than ever for developers to share their apps on social media and websites.
The tools include a new link generator that can not only create short links, but also embeddable code for websites. Links then connect people directly to App Store product pages and can display QR codes and more.
Developers can begin the process of using the new tools by searching for their apps on Apple's App Store Marketing Tools website.

He has also been published in print for Macworld, including cover stories. At iMore, Oliver is involved in daily news coverage and, not being short of opinions, has been known to 'explain' those thoughts in more detail, too.
Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
