Vidrio for Mac v1.11: an onboarding window

26 Mar 2020

During usability testing (i.e.: watching people use Vidrio), I noticed that for new users, it wasn’t at all clear what you’re supposed to do. “Okay, it shows me my face. How do I control it? What do I do next?”

Vidrio now has an “onboarding” window. When you launch Vidrio, it gives you some instructions: where the controls are, and what to do next.

This could be improved. In future, I could make the onboarding window “point” to the Vidrio menu in the top-right. I could add some buttons to launch your favorite screen sharing software. And I might make the onboarding window toggle-able, for long-time users that get annoyed by it.
