tutorialI got a new phone this weekend and, as usual, I wanted to start fresh. As I began manually downloading the essentials, I noticed that more that half of my most-used apps surface some sort of major screen-takeover tutorial. Showing up to three panels of swipe-through content, even for a logged-in user, is a little excessive this early in the experience. I doubt these are ever more than glanced over for a hint at what to do first. My advice is to not show tutorials on launch, but rather have them be always-accessible from a help feature. And also... please include a way to skip.
