A guide for new users
In my opinion, for users who have never used the Ubuntu Touch system before. It is hard to know how to use Ubuntu Touch because all operation are hidden. And It would be great to set a ‘Simple to get started’ at the first time of system start. And add some guides in 'UBports' app for some addition guides.
Improving the ubports welcome app with some guides is a good idea
There is already the tutorial on startup where you can see how to use the starter and the gestures of the system. So it should be clear how to use the starter, the topbar, the app overview and how to start apps in general.
Didn't the Welcome guide introduced you the first time you run UT?
a video guide,updated at intervals,tips for the regular guy in the street type,to learn the little things,most take for granted
At the moment there are a couple of guides in the blog, e.g. https://ubports.com/de_DE/blog/ubports-blog-1/post/vpn-on-ubuntu-touch-178
It probably needs some way to display just the guides from the blog (or it already exists and I'm just not aware).
@ingo meanwhile there's a better solution, @Lakotaubp maintains a tutorial list at https://forums.ubports.com/topic/1334/ubports-tutorial-links-collection
@cibersheep It didn't showed in my devices, but only the time setting, wifi setting and some other setting.
These picture is the Meizu Flyme User help app.(It is Chinese because my main language is Chinese, I added some translation for it.)
I think Ubuntu touch should also have a app like this.
This picture shows a search input on the top.
The character “新手指引,老死机带你玩转Flyme” on the top means "A guide for these are new". Click it will show some tips of Flyme.
Blow it are some tips(also some ads, :<);
And then is Normal question(常见问题), click will show next picture
Some useful translation:
提交 Bug=log a bug
全部专题=All topic(just a blog of flyme)
魅友知道=Meizu's fan Q&A(someone can ask a question, and other answer this question)
And this picture is the "Normal question"(常见问题), a Q&A by Meizu offical. It shows a list of what sort of question,such as use of communication apps (通讯), network(网络),setting(设置)
These really help when searching for a solution of a question. Rather than put all Q&A together.
some useful translation:
桌面与主题=Desktop setting and themes
系统工具=as same as core apps, I don't know why meizu set two instead of one.
帐号与安全=Online account and security
相机与图库=camera and gallery
实验室=some test feature in flyme
Looks good. We could redesign the ubports welcome app the same way.
