This is funny, this reminds me of my grand-grand mother she used to say that
aircrafts were witchcraft, when I at that age (+-6) was already familiar
with planes...

Just a bracket (now I am going to be flamed really hard) It's my opinion
that on this forum and I presume this activity (IXD) people don't take the
terminology too much seriously, or in other words a lot a things mean the
same thing and sometimes those same things mean completely diff

Marketing Healthcare iPad/iPhone products - Free product supporting larger product

I have recently finished a contract for a health and wellness application for iPad/iPhone.  We have managed to become the #1 grossing app in it's category several times since it's launch over a week ago. 

The question I pose is if anyone has experience in iPhone/iPad marketing with respect to offering free applications to help promote a larger product.  If you have, what is the effect of this on sales?

Thanks for your time.

Get started tutorials

I am looking for good examples of get started tutorials - by which I mean
the optional tooltips that guide you through an online application for the
first time. I have seen this most often in games, but I know I have run
across it in websites as well. We are proposing to replace existing video
tutorials with this approach and I am looking for examples, studies or
opinions that support or refute this decision.

My sense is that the future of help for new users is to provide these sorts
of optional, in-context tools rather than create and maintain a separate
training video or tutorial.
