How to design app UI for Quiz App [Step By Step]

Welcome to the second part of this quiz app series. In this post, we are going to learn how to design app UI (Screens) for Quiz App [Step By Step]. In the previous post, we had designed an icon for the play store with the help of photoshop, if you haven’t seen that part, then I will recommend you to check that post first.

In this we will design 4 screens (UI):

  1. Splash Screen.
  2. Home Screen.

How to design app UI for Quiz App [Step By Step]

Follow this post step by step.

Before starting further steps, we will discuss some important things. If you want to launch any screen on your device then you have to do some important settings, this setting is important because we’ll design multiple screens. So, whenever you want to launch any specified activity but at the time only one activity (Screen) will be launch those are defined in the manifest. For that, this setting is required. Let’s do the setting

1- Go to Activity Manifest > Define the intent filter into all activities.

Now we move to design App Screen

How to design app UI for Quiz App [Step By Step]

Step 1. Splash Screen UI Design

Open the activity_splash.xml layout and add the following code.

Splash Screen of Quiz App
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:background="@drawable/back"
    tools:context=".Splash_Screen">

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/icon_anim"
        android:layout_width="150dp"
        android:layout_height="150dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="40dp"
        android:background="@drawable/real_quiz_icon"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toTopOf="@+id/progressBar"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintVertical_bias="0.967" />

    <ProgressBar
        android:id="@+id/progressBar"
        android:layout_width="60dp"
        android:layout_height="60dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="24dp"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toTopOf="@+id/textView2"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent" />

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/textView2"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginBottom="128dp"
        android:fontFamily="sans-serif"
        android:text="Loading...."
        android:textAlignment="center"
        android:textColor="@android:color/white"
        android:textSize="20sp"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toTopOf="@+id/textView3"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent" />

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/textView3"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginBottom="24dp"
        android:fontFamily="sans-serif"
        android:gravity="bottom"
        android:text="Developer-Techpass Master"
        android:textColor="@android:color/white"
        android:textSize="16sp"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent" />
    
</androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout>

Step 2. Home Screen UI Design

Create the second screen ( Home Screen ). Open the activity_home.xml layout and add the following code.

Home Screen
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:background="@drawable/back_dashbord"
    tools:context=".Main_Activity">

    <androidx.appcompat.widget.Toolbar
        android:id="@+id/toolbar"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="?attr/actionBarSize"
        android:background="@color/colorPrimary"
        app:titleTextColor="@android:color/white"
        app:popupTheme="@style/AppTheme.PopupOverlay" />

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/icon"
        android:layout_width="150dp"
        android:layout_height="150dp"
        android:layout_above="@+id/btn_play"
        android:layout_below="@id/toolbar"
        android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
        android:layout_marginStart="150dp"
        android:layout_marginTop="150dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="200dp"
        android:src="@drawable/real_quiz_icon" />

    <RelativeLayout
        android:id="@+id/btn_play"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentStart="true"
        android:layout_alignParentEnd="true"
        android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
        android:layout_marginStart="100dp"
        android:layout_marginEnd="100dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="16dp"
        android:background="@drawable/button_bg_rec"
        android:gravity="center">

        <TextView
            android:id="@+id/tvPlay"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:padding="8dp"
            android:text="Play Quiz"
            android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.AppCompat.Large"
            android:textColor="@color/colorPrimaryDark"
            android:textStyle="bold" />
    </RelativeLayout>
</RelativeLayout>

Step 3. Play Screen UI Design

The third Screen is a very important screen for our quiz app. Let’s see how we will design it. Open the activity_play.xml layout and add the following code.

Play Screen
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:background="@drawable/background">

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/score"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="24dp"
        android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
        android:text="Your Score :- 0"
        android:textColor="#A8FFFB"
        android:textSize="18sp"
        android:textStyle="bold"
        android:layout_marginStart="8dp"
        android:layout_marginTop="8dp"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/total_marks"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
        android:layout_toEndOf="@id/score"
        android:text="1/10"
        android:textAlignment="viewEnd"
        android:textColor="#FE7500"
        android:textSize="18sp"
        android:textStyle="bold"
        android:layout_marginEnd="8dp"
        android:layout_marginTop="8dp"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />

    <TextView

        android:textStyle="bold"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintHorizontal_bias="0.0"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />

    <androidx.cardview.widget.CardView
        android:id="@+id/cardView2"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="100dp"
        android:layout_below="@id/txtTime"
        android:layout_marginTop="32dp"
        app:cardCornerRadius="4dp"

        android:layout_marginEnd="8dp"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@+id/txtTime">

        <TextView

</androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout>

Step 4. Final Result Screen UI Design

The fourth screen is the last screen of our quiz app it’s also a very important screen for our quiz app. Let’s see how we will design it. Open the activity_result.xml layout and add the following code.

Final Result Screen
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
