I'll make this an answer so I can expand on my comment. Your main problem is not an arrow, icon, color or emoji thing. Your main problem is a conceptual one: you're mixing taxonomies with gradations that might be (they actually are!) absolutely opposed. Thus, you're adding a load where user has to make an interpretation of whether your taxonomy and your ...

Put the good at the top and bad at the bottom (or maybe reverse this if you want to attract more attention to the bad). This way, you will have two sections divided by a clear conceptual mapping. I would imagine that the main question is more along the lines of "In what areas are we struggling?" rather than "Did this section increase or decrease?" This ...

Perhaps instead of unprofessional emoticons, you can use a simpler symbol to indicate a good or bad result. In this case, I used a tick and a cross: But since the indication is probably more important than the direction, we can place greater emphasis on the ticks and crosses: Note how the arrows are now smaller and faded towards the background colour, ...

The iOS HCI Guidelines suggest that you should follow the Modal View in order to have the user complete a task and have complete knowledge of the task they are doing. Although the button suffices the purpose of the context, I would still recommend using the title to adhere to the guidelines. iOS users are accustomed to the layout and know the difference ...

I took a similar approach in solving this with a 24 hour circle. I found this much easier to use. Once implemented, most users loved it - others felt like its was hard to set smaller 15 min increments. However, fine tuning into these increments depends on where on the circle the user would tap (on the outer edges are best as more surface/touch area) and ...

You can add an "Action" image in the table view cell. That can make users understand that will be a Share Extension. This is an example from Reeder.

Consider separating the list into two sublists, one of "things which are good when they increase" and one of "things which are bad when they increase". I'm not sure what your exact business domain is here, but it sounds like you have income generating items and liability generating items, so why not just make two lists? This could be done "in-line", i.e. ...

Change the size of the text and the tick colour of the subsections, for example:

Just a quick suggestion, you could possibly disable the submit button, but have the text on it change to 'Submitting...' and also disable all of the form fields, so that the user can't then submit the form using the keyboard. download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups I don't know about the feasibility of adding a loading ...

I would do both 1 and 2, but also present the user with a message. Having a message will guide the user's expectation and avoid unnecessary concern by the user. The message doesn't have to say much, even just that the form is submitting and will take up to 30s.

You can add some visual clue showing the icon can be changed. Maybe a little pencil or an arrow

If I understand the question, the answer is that it depends on the content you're trying to display. What it sounds like you're describing is a split view. [ This is a standard iPad pattern and it works well if you have many menu items AND don't need all of the screen real estate for your content. I would guess this isn't a good pattern for you as you're ...

One thing to note in general, without considering implications of arrow cardinality or color: arrows that point straight up or down are confusing in general, since they can have multiple meanings: This row can be collapsed or expanded by clicking the arrow; This row can be moved up or down by clicking the arrow; This row has changed in value compared to ...

Excellent that you are working with Sketch! 1.0) No, you should not design for each device separately. You could certainly make higher fidelity mockups this way but, trust me, it will be a pain to make any changes. And there probably will be many changes. There are a few different schools of thought here, but the consensus is pretty much that you should ...

Tabs are making a comeback for their superior user engagement. It's an "out of sight, out of mind" kind of phenomena with users and drawer style controllers.
