You can see one of the steps in medical data collection in an iPad app (questionnaire). My task is to improve its ui/ux and leave its skeuomorphism alone, because old-aged people use it and stakeholders love it. Target audience is patients of 30-70 years old. This app also will be designed for iphone and web.

I would appreciate for constructive ideas and recommendations!

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions about Site Reviews are off-topic because questions here are expected to be relevant for a variety of people in the same situation. Reviewing a site, flow or interface only helps one person at a specific time. Instead try to ask a focused question about a particular aspect of the design that solicits solutions, not opinions." – Benny Skogberg, Matt Obee, JonW

Are you just looking for help with the birthday picker? Or the overall structure? In other words does prev next matter in your question? – Fresheyeball Jan 9 '14 at 21:53
The answer was closed, and I saw value in it, I just think it was properly written. You're combining skeuomorphic elements with non-skeuomorphic elements. Have you ever seen buttons in a clipboard? – edgarator Jan 9 '14 at 23:33
@edgarator It's not been closed, it's been put on hold to give the OP time to make it more suitable. It's not totally unsuitable for this site but the way it's currently written it's a 'please review my site' type question, and that's the sort of answers it'll get. However if it's updated to be more general about skeuomorphism or particular elements for the target age range that's more suitable. However there is no current focus on this question aside from 'how can I improve this screen' which doesn't benefit anyone else reading this. – JonW Jan 9 '14 at 23:38
@JonW I actually meant that it wasn't properly written... My mind plays tricks on me! Well, it's good, while I was writing the answer a message appeared with "closed" not hold... maybe SE glitch... – edgarator Jan 10 '14 at 0:44
@Dani So is, say, reviewing cases of UX design in the past, why they happened, what the result was, etc. They are great learning resources, but I think the usefulness here is meant to be more about other people sharing a similar problem being able to come here and get a solution. If other people can't do that, it's something helping only one person. – doppelgreener Jan 10 '14 at 3:38
