Hey fellow fn'ers, I have a web app product that I'm about to release privately, but before I do, I want to incorporate a quick tutorial on features and layout for my users. Have any of you used or heard of good software for giving users a layout of the site and helping them understand the workflow?

The only one I came across was http://tourmyapp.com/

Have you heard anything about that and other products?

I think the Joyride javascript plugin could work well for this. I don't think you need the full Zurb Foundation framework for it.

This may be teaching grandmothers to suck eggs and all, but maybe look at the site and see of you understand it, or get an 8 year old child to do the same. If they don't, look at how to change it so they do... Then you don't need a snappy bit of software to explain it for you... Sounds silly, but might just be the way forward...
