FirstRun Screen on Published Web App

I’ve read that having an uninitialized stored variable can cause a project published as a Web App to crash. And I’ve experienced that. I have a stored variable called FirstRun that is null and then changes to true after the app has started. That way, I can show an intro screen once to users and then never again.

Is there a way to do that on a Web App without it crashing?

What about using a cloud variable for screens after a signup/login or local storage for before a sign in screen?

I figured out a workaround. I created a new screen that says “If platform is web” navigate to main screen else navigate to FirstRun Screen (which checks the stored variable). So I bypass the check on the stored variable and the Web App no longer crashes.

Hmm… haven’t tried that.

A cloud variable works as a Web App. Thank you, @jaredgibb!
