I want to add an information / message to certain screens when users first open the app, so they understand how to use the app, such as:
"This screen allows you to view all of your... etc"
[OK, I GET IT]
I was thinking of adding a column, such as 'home_screen_msg' to the 'user' table and setting a value of 0 in it, and then querying this field each time the user opens the home screen.
If the value is still 0, show the information / message pop up, then when they click [OK, I GET IT], update the field to 1 so that it doesn't show again.
I think my approach is a bit resource heavy or OTT, as this means that this query is run everytime, every user opens the home screen.
Is there an easier way to accomplish such a task?
Thanks in advance for your help.
PS - can anyone recommend what Expert Exchange categories you should select for App Development? Thanks again for your help.
