How do I put in an area where I would make a question and there would be a small white box for the user to put input?

How to attach user input to your application? Also to make a new screen on your app do you simply make a new layout and a activity for that layout?

If you want a text-input your application, use an EditText (Text Fields), that's the standard way to let the user write text, numbers, etc.

If you want to implement different layouts in your application, there are a wide number of options depending on your need. Maybe take a look at fragments and how to declare layouts.

Hope this helps.
