Description (last modified by mario)
There are several problems, when activating the content blocker. Therefore, we decided to improve the user workflow.
The workflow changes mainly aim at the following issues:
- When the app is started and ABP isn't activated in the iOS Settings, show a notification, that locks the rest of the app. The notification states, that the user needs to enable ABP in the Settings before he can proceed. "Locking" the app by a notification prevents users from assuming, that ABP works by only starting the app (and not reading the information as currently shown).
- Show a direct link to the iOS Settings in order to make it easier for the user to find where to enable ABP
What to change
The new workflow is put into five steps.
The Acceptable Ads introduction will be displayed in a modal dialog.
Headline: You're in control
Text: Annoying ads are always blocked, while nonintrusive ads are displayed by default. You can change this setting at any time in:
Acceptable Ads → Allow some nonintrusive ads
After that, there is a (standard iOS) blue button with the label "Got it". Clicking this button will lead you to step 2.
The user will see a notification overlay, which prevents the user to use/see the main app. The notification is a combination of what we currently showing in our second on-boarding slide and the main screen. The headline of the notification overlay, which is designed like a default iOS notification, is:
Headline: "Before you proceed, turn on Adblock Plus in your Safari settings"
- Go to Settings → Safari → Content Blockers.
- Turn on Adblock Plus.
After that there is a visual separator (little 2px dots) and another label which says "Watch how-to video" (color: standard blue). When clicking this label, the how-to video opens and behave like it currently does.
The user needs to activate Adblock Plus in the Safari settings. Step 2 will be visible in the app as long as the activation is not done. If Adblock Plus is activated and ABP for iOS is opened again, another screen will appear which tells, that the activation was successfully and that there is some progress to configure the filter lists.
Text: “You’ve activated Adblock Plus in Safari”
Headline: Configuring filter lists
Text: This can take some second
After the configuration is done, there will be one last screen which will tell the user, that Adblock Plus for Safari is now ready to use, or, if there were connection problems, that the user needs to manually update the filterlists.
Wording (if everything went well):
Headline: “Adblock Plus is installed”
Text: “Adblock Plus is activated in Safari and all filter lists are up to date. You can use Safari without annoying ads now.”
Wording (if there was a problem, while updating the filter lists):
Headline: Filter lists are not up to date
Text: “There was no internet connection while trying to update the filter lists. Please update the filter lists manually in the settings. It’s possible, that you still see some ads in Safari, because of the outdated filter lists.”
After clicking “Finish” the main app will appear.
The main app is basically the current settings page but with little visual adjustments. Please ignore and omit the "Feedback" menu item as of now. The functionality will be described in a separate issue. The ad for Adblock Browser is not part of the visuals, but it should be part of the main app. The ad should be placed on the bottom of the main app, means that a user needs to scroll to see it, if there are too many menu items.
- Exception: If the user disables ABP for iOS in the Safari Settings afterwards, the modal notification from Step 1 is shown again (if possible).
(Please note that the screenshots above don't use the exact same style as described in this style guide. Please apply this style guide to the content for each notification.)
