A common theme among those who like onboarding cards is a tendency to undervalue the intelligence of the user. “We need a tutorial or the user won’t know what the app is for!” (I’ve heard more than once). And, that’s not only a dangerous perspective as it relates to onboarding; that thought process often pervades the entire product strategy, too.
