Drilling down datasets - this is the tree pattern. The extended version of it is the Tree-Table Depending on the length, you could also use Cascading Lists On mobile, usually one-window drilldown is used. If the add action means the same for all three (Add <object in question>) then it's fine. If you have truly different actions, differentiate the ...

The official guidelines don't specify a solution for such cases, but you can see that native apps for Ice Cream Sandwich achieve this distinction through typography, where drill-down enabled rows appear in a brighter font color. In the sreenshot below, only Status and Legal Information provide drill-down to a deeper level. The same goes for Gingerbread ...

What you need to do is hiding the breadcrumbs while still having them accessible on mobile. There are three patterns I think you might be interested in: Displaying only the previous level. Here's a responsive example: http://codepen.io/bradfrost/full/dKulf Displaying breadcrumbs as a dropdown. A responsive example again: ...

You may consider icicle charts, or their complementary form known as sunburst partitions. There are many different hierarchical data visualization techniques, some less intuitive than others. Depending on your data set this may be overkill, but something worth exploring nonetheless.

The best affordance for examining/drilling down in a chart is making the data interactive. Users are accustomed to using labels/legends to find the information they're interested in and the natural response to find more detail about a field is to click on the data. The tooltip provides the actual value and confirms the user has selected the correct ...

+1 to both Vitaly and Paul's answers. I would also mention that if a list item has a secondary action, one option is to supply a full-height icon button (not visually a button per se just a touchable region) with a separator to indicate the action. Another option is to expose contextual actions using the contextual action bar (CAB), triggered on long press. ...

The best solution I've seen is to simply have a checkbox next to the folder name, like in Google Drive:

This sounds like a workflow for building a single quote. How does this fit into the complete functionality of the application? Can a person retrieve or edit past estimates? Can the person start and return to a past estimate? Guessing that the answer is yes to at least that last question, the answer I think is more complicated. Do you have a use case ...

It's a good idea. If number of sections > 5, it's better to use one UINavigationController with root UITableViewController, which contains sections as rows in tableview. As an alternative, slide menu controller(like in YouTube or Facebook apps) can be used. However, I'm not sure that I understand structure: As I think, Home should be main controller, ...

On my Android phone the items in Settings / About Phone which are informational only and have no associated action have grey font text instead of white. Your UI seems a lot more colourful than that monotone, but you should be able to convey meaning with consistent use of font colour.

Blue underlined labels (hyperlink) is one of the easiest ways to afford clickability. If you make the labels under the bar chart clickable, that will attract the cursor to the chart; having some hover affordance on the bars themselves, as you described, will seal the deal. download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups I agree ...

You don't need to cover all the possible ways to get to an object, just select the one that makes the most sense and make it your navigation model. This is true for most cases in general, but it's especially important on mobile, where it's difficult to provide a complex navigation system.
