I am designing a multi-step wizard to display at the startup of my Android App. Looking for examples which serves as both tutorial and tour of the major benefits of the app. So far I haven't found many examples yet. Please share if you know of any great UX designs in this category.

  • Any example of a wizard in an app, phone or tablet, would be appreciated.

There are some brilliant examples of start-up walkthroughs. Typically there are two types of start-up prompts, walkthroughs and coach screens.


These are usually slides, often with animations that contain an overview of features, ending in a call-to-action.
Twine: One good example of animations is Twine, which makes you scroll through to the final. An indicator of state is shown at the bottom.

Twine's walkthrough screens

Cal: has a single screen with a video playing in the background. Might not explain features but sets the mood for the app. Cal's video walkthrough

Coach Screens

These are overlays over the actual UI that show up the first time the user opens the app.

Kitkat: Android 4.4's coach screens. Kitkat's coach screens

You could find more examples here.


The best example I've seen of this lately is to have a dark layer on top of your app with hand written notes and arrows.

I think this is a better way to do a Wizard because it lets you see the app while it explains things but still makes it clear that you're not really in the app yet.

This is a rough draft I was working on, but it demonstrates the idea.

  • The blinkbox app for android (UK VOD service) play.google.com/store/apps/… has a nice version of this approach on first load. Worth a look if you can access it in your region.
