UI design suggestion for android app


I need suggestion and little guidance regarding design and animation in android.I am developing an app which control bot through bluetooth. So far I have done connecting with the bot through my app. But the biggest challenge I am facing is "THE DESIGN" of that app. I have a feature in that app where children can predefine a path for the bot by pressing the direction buttons on the screens (Forward,Backward,Left,Right) and later they can click on the execute button to make the bot run on the predefined direction the user has created. So I need to make a UI for that section. What I have done is: I placed a listview where if the user click on any of the direction buttons the direction image gets added to the list and is displayed to the user. But I want to show some kind of connection between all the list items. So that they can understand the sequence of the code.

Please help me and suggest me some ideas of blogs or plugins through which I can accomplish my task. The target audience for that app is 1st class students.

Thanks in advance

Hey Sagar.

Design is not my strong-suit, and I can't think of any references off the top of my head. However, something like this, Google will be your best friend. Just start entering your keywords, and it's auto-complete should help steer you to very valuable information for your specific needs.

Good luck! :)

I have a lot of questions regarding the UI of android apps. If you see sites like materialup they have so many templates or mockups for android apps with such a great animation and complex design. How do they achieve these. What tools or engine they use for a cutting edge ui?
