How do you indicate progress to users in a multi-step form?

What is the best way to display progress in a multi-step process (for e.g. linear filling various forms) on smartphones & tablets?

For more clarification: Its a business process where user needs to carry out few steps for its successful completion, using his/her touch devices.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There's no difference between mobiles & other devices when it comes to patterns of displaying progress through a task. Thus, the solutions to the question "How do you indicate progress to users in a multi-step form?" are still applicable. – dnbrv Feb 6 '12 at 12:41

As far as I understand your question, I think you should try wireframeing the whole process for the given Smartphone / Tablet.

Here are some free web and mobile ui wireframe kits

I'm sorry I guess my question is little misleading, I meant how can I show such a process (like normally in desktop apps we have next and previous button) – carora3 Feb 6 '12 at 10:22
