I have a main activity that contains many buttons. I don't want to have a list of buttons like this. I know this looks bad, only cause I threw this together to show you what I have. As you can see, I really don't even have enough room. I don't want a scrollView in my main Activity. Does anyone have suggestions on building my activity to look sleek and simple?

    not without knowing what it does and what it currently looks like :) Commented Oct 26, 2013 at 19:59
  • Ok take a look. Does this explain better? Commented Oct 26, 2013 at 20:22
  • How about using layout_weight ? It may help with creation of percent based items height.

  • You could use a grid layout with big icons.

One approach would be to put the buttons in a NavigationDrawer and display only the most important info in the content of the Activity or one of the other screens as the starting point and the user can navigate from here through the NavigationDrawer

If you don't like this approach you could also try putting the buttons in an ActionBar Spinner as a list. This way you'll have one of the "Fight Cards", "Buy Tickets", etc screen as the starting point and the user can navigate from here through the Spinner

I don't know exactly what you're displaying in the application so I cannot decide what is the best solution for your problem, you'll have to figure that out yourself.
