Well, again, it really depends. If a screenshot accompanied every
topic in a mobile app help system, that'd get rather unwieldy and
users would tire of scrolling past the shots to get to the info that
will hopefully help them. For large enterprise systems where data
entry is performed on huge, convoluted interfaces, the inverse might
apply. It's hard to say and there's no one answer to the question,
other than "it depends".
