Onboarding screens should fulfill at least one of the three purposes listed below.
- Informs the user on the app’s functions and benefits.
- A registration page to help your user log in.
- Collects user information to help in personalizing content and notifications.

The Function-Oriented Onboarding approach, on the other hand, focuses on showing the user the functions of the app. This approach usually teaches the user how to use the app and what are its common functions.
