Starting by briefly outlining some of the factors you need to keep in mind when building a UI, you'll learn the concepts of Android User Interface from scratch.

We will deep dive into how UI features are implemented in real-world applications where UIs are complex and dynamic.

This book offers near complete coverage of UI-specific content including, views, fragments, the wireframing process, and how to add in splash screens - everything you need to make professional standard UIs for modern applications. It will then cover material design and show you how to implement Google's design aesthetic in a practical manner. Finally, it ensures the best possible user experience by analyzing the UI using various tools, and then addressing any problems they uncover.

By the end of the book, you'll be able to leverage the concepts of Android User Interface in your applications in order to attract new customers.
