In all the excitement of the holidays, our latest version of Kindara didn’t get the credit it was due! Just before the magical App Store elves went on vacation, they approved our latest version of Kindara, much to our excitement.
We have been using Localytics to keep track of how many people download the app, and how many of those become actual users (users who return and enter data week after week). After looking over the information we got from them, we thought it would be a great idea to provide a little instruction for first-time users so they won’t be discouraged or intimidated by our friendly little app.
Because we want to Kindara to be as accessible and useful as possible, we came up with this, our first tutorial, and added it to the app. That way, rather than just being dropped into the data screen, new users (who might not know anything about fertility charting at all) can get a better idea of how to use Kindara as soon as they download it. We think it’s a pretty good idea.
Here’s how it works:
Upon entering the Kindara app for the first time, a greyed-out image of the data screen, with all the relevant details of the app highlighted, will appear.
Tapping on any of the highlights will bring up a popup with a brief description, and in many cases a “Learn More” button that will bring up an article on that topic.
To see the other screens in tutorial mode tap on that tab in the menu bar. To exit the tutorial, simply tap the Exit button, and then you’ll be in the real version of the app.
What do you think of it? Love it? Hate it? Have any ideas for how we could improve it? Let me know in the comments.
