Hi @fc23!

You will need ROS Android stuff. You can go to https://wiki.ros.org/android to get started and create a new package/ project from scratch. Another option (perhaps a bit faster) would be to take a look to https://github.com/rosjava/android_apps. You can use teleop app as a template, remove what you don't need and build your app on top of that. You will see that this app has a place where an image stream can be visualized; you can probably grab that and tweak it to meet your needs.

If you won't use any custom service or message, you should be able to build your app using Gradle as a regular Android app without installing anything else just with Android Studio. You can also do it the catkin-way; in that case you will need to install rosjava and it's build tools. Check https://wiki.ros.org/rosjava for installation tutorials (personal recommendation: go to source installation).
