Mobile onboarding ft. Sam Stuckless

Today we have Sam Stuckless, the Senior Product Designer at Appcues. We will be diving into the deeper side of how mobile apps work and how to achieve a great mobile onboarding experience.

Having an effective mobile app onboarding flow is key to enabling new users to succeed. However, smaller screens demand simpler onboarding because users tend to try out a lot of apps but decide that they want to stop using most of them within the first three-to-seven days. The key to success is to get the users hooked during that critical period. If you’re curious about how this whole system works, strap in because we have an episode just for you!
