What is the best way of designing an appealing UI?

Hallo Community,
I finished the code for my app but I was told that the design is old fashioned, which is true.
But I don´t know which tools to use for the design and how to get the size of the button. Is it possible to adjust the size of the buttons and images in the code? I saw you can do it in Android Studio. If so are there tutorials?
Thank you

Yes and no using only Blocks. Height and Width, only in Designer (Properties flagged only in Designer) but you can modify other parameters.

What you can change with code * Button.

Extensions can do more. Experiment. :slight_smile:

Here are some resources to help you learn to use the AI2 tools. A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor's Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook App Inventor 2 Book: Create Your Own Android Apps ... the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book 'teaches' users how to program with AI2 blocks.

There is a free programming course here Course In A Box and the aia files for the projects in the book are here: App Inventor 2 Book: Create Your Own Android Apps

How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: How do you...? .
