I often time see in an iOS apps when you first launch the app there will be a one time instruction with arrows and such to show a first time user guide. It's usually a black transparant colored screen with arrows. I was trying to find a few app that does this, but I couldn't. Was wondering if someone knew the terms for these and how to create it?

UIView and place it above the view you're wishing to guide the user through. Set up the
UIView como una
IBOutlet in your classes header file, set the background to black and set the alpha to 0.3 or something similar (test to see how it looks).
En el encabezado:
IBOutlet UIView *overlayView;
overlayView.alpha = 0.3f;
You may want to make sure that the overlay shows the first time the users opens the app or maybe store a value in a database for when the user dismisses the screen so that you don't show it again. To do this you can hide the
UIView or simply set the alpha to 0.
Then simply add images or annotations to the
UIView. As "bentford" said it's quite broad but this should get you on your way. You can also use multiple
UIView's or even transformations to animate the screens.
I use Skitch. You can find it in the Mac App Store.
Skitch can take the screenshot in the simulator and overlay the arrows and notes. Then when you launch the app, you show the image created with Skitch in a UIImageView on top of the actual view. Then just hide the UIImageView.
