Android Question

Hint or alert inside Android app

Apologies for the rough sketch.
Basically I want, the first time the user opens the app, is to draw their attention to a button and have some text like "You can click me for more information!" or something like that.

Does anyone know what this is called? Is there a name for this sort of thing - and can it be done in native Android or would I need a third party library? Thanks

Answer

I think what you are talking about is called ShowCase View

Example Library : https://github.com/amlcurran/ShowcaseView

Edit : Note there are other libraries too. You can check android-arsenal for more
