Don’t Wreck My PC! now has a startup screen that explains how to drive it. Does this make sense to you? Would you be scared off by it?
When you click Next, that screen animates up into a yellow bar at the top of the screen, like this:
(The way that transition is done makes it pretty much impossible for the user to miss the yellow bar.)
Don’t Wreck My PC! is unusual in that it can’t present a user interface most of the time – you need to be able to see the whole screen. Just showing that yellow bar when you first start it is clearly no good, hence the introduction screen. My worry is that it makes the thing appear complicated – “What, do I need to learn all this stuff before I can use it?”
All opinions, as usual, gratefully received…
