I'm learning how to make Ubuntu Touch OS applications, and I looked all over the web for something, but didn't find any satisfying results. This is either because I am the first to ask this question, or maybe because I am not using the proper vocabulary in my question.

In any case, here's my question.

How do I make an app with a screen that says "Hello World" with a button, and make it so that when I press the button it goes to a different page? By 'page' I mean something like a tab, that isn't listed at the top of the screen, and is attained by clicking a button, not by selecting the tab from the list at the top of the screen.

If my idea is still unclear, consider the System Settings app on Ubuntu Touch. Click on ANYTHING. Wifi, Background, Battery, I literally mean ANYTHING. What happened? You clicked a button and the app displayed a new page. That's what I want to learn how to do.
