Displaying small views that provide context sensitive information is a common way to guide a user and/or show information without covering the entire UI.
TBHintView provides an easy to way to display messages, in a separate view, at the top or bottom of the display. These simple messages are an effective way to keep user’s informed, in an unobtrusive way.
Hints can support a range of content types including text, image or custom view. Dismissal can be manual or timed. You can also include multiple pages within a single hint view (see rightmost screenshot below).
And I always appreciate the effort when a developer(s) writes the necessary code to support landscape and portrait modes:
You can download TBHintView from github.
