In my iPhone app's home page I need to display the groups a user is part of, as well as have buttons to make and join a group. I've added buttons that lead to the pages where group creation/joining is handled. Here's a picture:
These buttons are important especially when the user first installs the app and isn't part of any groups yet. However, they're pretty intrusive and look out of place to me. As a computer science student who's not really good with UI I was wondering if anybody could please give me any tips to make the buttons fit in better on the page.
