I'm constantly trying to find ways to make SnapPages even easier to use, especially if you are just getting started. Event as simple as SnapPages is, it can still be overwhelming whenever you are trying something new. In an effort to help this, I've just added a new integrated tutorial system that I'm testing out in the Web Pages app, with plans to expand it and add it to the other apps as well.
The idea behind it was that it while video tutorials are great, they can be difficult to create, and can quickly become obsolete if a feature is changed or a new feature is added. In addition to this, once you finish the video tutorial, you are still left with the task of actually going in and doing the work yourself, while trying to remember everything you learned in the video tutorial.
The integrated tutorials, on the other hand, are something different. They appear right in the app itself, while you are using the app, and teach you how to use it. This way you are both learning and doing at the same time.
As I said, this is really a test version to see how well it works so at the moment there is only one tutorial and you can find it by clicking on the new "need help?" link in the top right hand corner of the Web Pages app. The goal is to have several of these for learning how to do all sorts of things on SnapPages so let me know what you guys think.
