Both of your proposed messages look like they could become quite irritating quite quickly. A computer app can't realistically tell you it is "time to meditate", as it can't possibly know what you are doing at the time. I suggest something like this: "Feeling stressed? You last meditated x days ago. Meditation can help you xxx", where the xxx is a ...

Instead of sticking to a 2-column layout, I would suggest going for a list based layout as shown in the mock-up below: In this layout, the Medicine name can be the title and the condition it treats can be shown as tags under the medicine name. Furthermore, if the user wishes to search all medicines for a particular condition, he can just click on the tag ...

Skeuomorphism was a defining characteristic of iOS until last year's release of "flat" iOS7. A quick Google search for iOS6 vs iOS7 flat design returns tons of design articles, comparisons, gripes, rants, etc. The images tab of that search has lots of side-by-side examples. Some key differences include reduction (or outright elimination) of depth cues like ...

Only since the larger iPhone was introduced does this seem to now cause an issue. I think they were originally aiming for a consistent approach with desktop Safari, i.e. top left. All that being said, I think the advent of larger screens means these controls have to shift and change. I use the 'swipe back' gesture almost exclusively now. It's simple, fast, ...

Yes, it's a normal practice. As you mention with an activity indicator and the option to cancel it'd be okay. A reason for this is because if something goes wrong you want to communicate it to the user as the first step after the "Submit" action. If you introduce more actions "in the middle" of that process, and that action can also have errors, it'll broke ...

I'm not sure if you can control that the site is opened in a webview under other apps (I don't think so). There is no way to deal with it, some apps open the sites in-app, some others do it in the browser (safari). You can't do anything about it. Maybe the best way to deal with it is basically avoid fixed headers in mobile webs, so you will have only one ...

This is a question of voice. How do you address the user across other channels (website, email, etc.)? Knowing and understand this will help determine the type of voice you wish to use in your messaging within the application. While I wouldn't consider this a UX question, I understand the potential experience impact. Short and sweet, use use your ...

Everything looks click-able on a mobile device :-P What I don't understand, is your desire to drag the user into every corer of your app. As I see it, the graphs will give the (novice) user sufficient information. I'm pretty sure that more advanced users would tap the label or the graph if they wanted to read more about the details. But I'm not sure, ...
