Toast + Popover combo?

I would like to display “hints” to users on how to interact with the app. Think of it as tool-tip hints but since there is no “tooltip” on mobile I was thinking of using a combination of Popover & a Toast to position the “hints” at particular locations on screen and only for certain duration of time.

Has anyone done this before? Is it a good idea and if not, can you recommend me an alternative? I would like to guide the user at certain steps.


Isn’t a popover just what you want? If you pass in the element where you want the popup to be placed, it will be neatly placed relative to the element you’ve passed when creating it. Just destroy the popover after a certain amount of time.
