  • Smart event-based tips that is user & context aware
  • No interaction by user required
  • Easily maintainable by the community. easily: add new tips, remove obsolete. In short: low overhead
  • Ergonomically correct (screen real-estate)
  • Length of tips limited to certain characters
  • Option to Read More or click on elipsis (...) leading to ...make status bar higher ? or open help on related page ?
