Length:LongLanguages:

App templates are a great way to jumpstart your next project, or to learn from other people's work. This article lists a few popular Android templates available on Envato Market. If you are looking for inspiration or you're building an application and need help with a particular feature, then you may find your answer in some of these templates.

Restaurant Finder

This template bursts with features and it even includes a backend ready to be deployed to a server. The application enables users to search for nearby restaurants, read reviews, share on social media, and it also includes the ability to book a table via email or text message.

Restaurant Finder

Almost every modern, mobile application talks to a back-end for one reason or another and this application is no different. The template includes a back-end for storing restaurants and user profiles. It also includes an analytics dashboard that shows metrics about the restaurants and users of the application. If you need inspiration for a location based application, then this template is worth checking out.

Your Radio App

If you ever wanted to know how to stream audio in an Android application, then this template is worth checking out. The application is focused on streaming audio from online radio stations. The template includes a feature-packed Android application as well as a back-end for managing the radio stations users can listen to.

Your Radio App

The template is compatible with both Android Studio and Eclipse and it relies on Parse for push notifications. It also includes AdMob for ad management. The application supports a wide range of stream formats and has a beautiful, modern user interface. If you're not convinced yet, then download the application from Google Play to try it out.

Universal Android WebView App

Sometimes you just want to get an app live as quickly as possible. An easy way to do this is to create a WebView app, that lets you convert a website into an Android app. With the Universal Android WebView App, you can create your content in HTML and JavaScript, and then wrap it up in an Android app. This app template has been around for a long time and is packed with features: a customizable native navigation menu, share buttons, geolocation, push notifications and more! It even comes with built-in support for Intents, so you can launch external apps to handle special actions—eg. making a phone call.

To see how easy it is to get started with this template, check out Ashraff Hathibelagal's 60 second quick-start video:

General Services App

More and more traditional businesses are going mobile and this template serves the market for services such as carpentry, plumbing, painting or repairs. In addition to the mobile application, the template also includes a back-end. The application itself is rich in features and includes user registration, the possibility to schedule a service, and even the ability for customers to leave a review.

General Services App
The application is compatible with Android Marshmallow, but it also supports older versions of the Android operating system. If you'd like to try it out, the author made a demo .apk file available from the item page on CodeCanyon.

Taxi Booking App

I already mentioned that many traditional businesses are making the jump to mobile and this includes taxi companies. There's a reason why Uber and Lyft are so popular. This Android template is quite impressive. It contains a feature rich Android application as well as a powerful backend, a complete solution. The application includes an interactive map with vehicle information and tracking, voice recognition, and support for push notifications.

Taxi Booking App

The template offers a solution for both users and drivers. Users can order a ride with the mobile application and drivers receive a notification when someone requests a ride. Even if you don't plan to build a taxi booking application, there's a lot you can learn from browsing the ins and outs of this template.

The City

This interesting places app template is suitable for a tourism or city guide. This all-native app let's users discover interesting places in a city map. The app UI follows material design specs and even has animations.

The City

Data is stored locally on the user's phone, so the app is fast and responsive. But, there is also an integrated admin back-end, so you can update the location data from anywhere on the fly. Then, with GCM notification, you can send those updates out to your users so they always have the latest version.

Android Material UI Template 

Sometimes it's really helpful just to have a reference template to work from. Some examples of a good UI design that you can copy and paste and modify. That's where Android Material UI Template comes in.

Android Material UI Template
This popular template contains many examples of material design app layouts. These pixel-perfect layouts make it easy for you to create your own beautiful material design app. Just focus on the functionality, and let the template author do the grunt work of ui design and layout for you.
