How do you indicate progress to users in a multi-step form?

What is the best way to display progress in a multi-step process (for e.g. linear filling various forms) on smartphones & tablets?

For more clarification: Its a business process where user needs to carry out few steps for its successful completion, using his/her touch devices.

I would show them just below the title of the view as circles.

As far as I understand your question, I think you should try wireframeing the whole process for the given Smartphone / Tablet.

Here are some free web and mobile ui wireframe kits
