I think a start would be to make it clear the total number of tests and/or total number of cards at the top of each card. And also the breakdown of how many rows you seeing out of that total. e.g. Total Tests: 22 Page: 1 of 2, showing tests 12 of 22 Mockup 1

Simply adding the arrow at the bottom will help. Check the below img

There are many good answers about annotating the bottom of the page clearly (I like Dave Haigh's best), but as an alternative, how about making the last task (on each side) indicate that tests continue on reverse -- that way, it's directly in what they're (meant) to be reading/completing? I don't have an image editor to hand, but instead of: download ...

Option 1: Print on multiple pieces of paper Just out of curiousity, is printing it on two separate pieces of paper an option? Having two papers and a staple indicates clearly to the reader that it isn't a single page document. Option 2: Add something to the end of the test to inidcate it is done I wonder if there are workflow type triggers that you ...

Use workflow and cognitive dissonance to draw the user's attention The form workflow is top-to-bottom, left-to-right. So the user will naturally end up at the bottom right of the page. So, place the page-turn indicator on the bottom right since the user's eye will be there. The form uses a grid layout, and has a lot of content. Therefore if you use ...

These are great answers, particularly Dave Haigh's, however none of them seem to address one important issue: What if the paper initially is placed on their desk with page 2 upwards? All the suggestions about "turn over to see page 2" don't address the issue of "turn over to see page 1". For example the big black box "10 more tests" somehow needs to be ...

What happened to the conventional arrows that were correlated to the number of pages there are? download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups You don't even have to show that left arrow when you're on page one.

There's nothing wrong or unexpected about a dropdown opening upwards. It happens quite a lot. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if you've seen it yourself, many many times. You just don't question it because it's instinctive. If a dropdown is going to open 'below the fold' then it often opens upwards. It happens on sites like Amazon for example: So ...

For my point of view there are few things you can improve 1) Add a tag line on your main page which tells what this app is about. As i kept wondering for 5 seconds and then clicked on ABOUT link to know what is this search input do 2) This information is not very sensitive so you can skip the password part and let the user save their list by providing just ...

Repurpose an autocorrect design There is a similar design pattern that every phone or handheld has: autocorrect. If you restrict the autocorrection dictionary to the names of pharmaceutical products, would that solve the design problem? I looked up drugs that start with "Amox…" and there were several. There must be thousands of drug names, so I can imagine ...

Yes, Ubuntu is fairly active in the UX field. Here are a few links for your reference: Ubuntu Design Blog Design team at Ubuntu Design Research at Ubuntu Launchpad project that tracks all user experience (UX) bugs related to Unity Next UX design jobs at Canonical Even though I have never been a part of their UX design community, I can vouch for Ubuntu ...

Yes, it’s a mess and there’s no easy way out. The international standard ISO/IEC 9995-7 specifies several symbols for keyboard labels. Most of them have been added to Unicode and exist in at least one supplied font on most modern operating systems, by the way. They are known to a varying, mostly limited degree. Power users, who are the primary target group ...

It's not very good UX, because Apple's goal is to make devices that behave exactly how you'd expect, and as you've stated in your question most people don't expect it to work that way. Matter of fact, there is a common prank where you set autocorrect shortcuts that replace common phrases with embarrassing or weird ones. And as you type, your phone ...

The most important factor in your decision should be "don't make the user think." The ellipsis is standard for truncating, but if you also intend to use it for a link, you'll want to use some sort of visual link convention (an underline, a link colour that you're using throughout, or something to that effect.), but it must be both obvious to the user that ...

At issue is not the particular color you choose but rather that you indicate to the user that the element is read-only. The UX part is telling users that this element functions differently than other elements (and of course gray is the color normally used for this purpose). Ultimately this is more of a question for your graphic designers and, by the way, ...

There is no benefit to the customer here. This is 99% likely the result of someone from corporate insisting on throwing more trademarks in to the product because, well, we have the trademarks so use them dummy! From what I can google, ©yummm®™ is super vague, unrelated to tipping or money in general, just a sort of tagline that isn't even present on their ...

When someone lands on the page, you should introduce people to what this does, what it's useful for, etc. That will be an easy win. For increased engagement, you need some interesting content to engage with. I would add a few lists myself, maybe those of actual dishes, and have them show, with the calorie count, on the homepage. That way, instead of coming ...

I'm guessing this is a simulator for internal systems only? Because if it is to be distributed to many users there are going to be all types of devices some with no mouse, some with a mouse but no scroll wheel, and some with no middle/right click. So it would be best to drop the wheel interface all together. If it is on standardized devices, and to answer ...

There are good and reasonable answers here that explain how to show readers that they must turn the sheet around, but what you really want in medical applications is making sure all necessary tests have been ordered/performed, not superfluous ones and not the wrong ones (for adjacent rows for instance). That is why I think it is more important to change ...

Does anyone know what was their reason behind implementing this even though it seems contrary to what they were trying to do? Probably. But we'd have to ask Apple that question. It may have very well been because Steve Jobs or Tim Cook "said so".

You can add an extra checkbox at the end of the form that says: "All checkboxes are checked" or "Check all test receipts are attached", or something to that effect. For this to be effective, lab workers need to be trained and conditioned to expect a checklist completion checkbox on every checklists they use regularly. The purpose of this checkbox is to ...

I agree with @nightning finding directions and accurately mentioning them is difficult. Not sure what device you are targeting. But if that has an inbuilt compass then this solution may work. Ask the users to point out which direction is downhill and then select their elevation. Simple mockups to demonstrate how the first step can let the users just point ...

I am also working on a financial application and we use a similar setup. For new persons who register by physically showing up at the financial institution branch, we send them out both a temporary username and a temporary password - via different channels. For eg. we would send a temporary username to the person's email address and the temporary password as ...

I like 5 sec tests but You can't get so much from 5 second test. it is more get OK test type and can be named as guerrilla kind of test. Trustworthy , company domain, service type can be questioned within 5 sec test. Brand engagement and recalling name can also part of this test. It can be also used when you choose an image, logo or icon. 5 sec test can ...
