Probably you can use
http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_secure_link_module.html

to completely prevent hotlinking
from any other applications and not authorized users.

but secret must not be included inside your android application,
and secure links must be generated only on server and only
for allowed (authorized) android applications and users.
