If You See a UI Walkthrough, They Blew It

Max Rudberg:

These apps have chosen to reduce details to achieve a minimal UI, but in the process the UI has also become harder to use. Unfortunately a UI walkthrough is quite an inelegant way to explain the core functionality of an app. It can be a frustrating obstacle before you can dive into an app, and you have to remember all of those new ways of using it once you get in.

A good rule of thumb is that the user should be able to figure out how to use an app just by looking at it.
