This is usually a problem with where the bundle is unzipped to. Here are two other posts that talk about it:

Can you try moving the bundle to a different location and then running initial_setup again?

Thanks for that do you have any more apps that you show tutorials on maybe a personal site or a website that you would use yourself

I can't really think of any other sites to recommend other than the tutorials available on the Android Developer site: http://developer.android.com/training/index.html

When I learned myself, I used the Android developer site and just built simple stuff that I wanted to try. After a while I was also fortunate to attend a bootcamp from Big Nerd Ranch, which was a great way for me to cement my newly-learned information. They have a good book if you'd be interested in working off something like that: http://www.bignerdranch.com/book/android_the_big_nerd_ranch_guide

Its very hard having an idea and then trying to implement it the tutorials on here are great just awkward how they don't have the core similarities to what i want to make

Very true, but that is where your best learning occurs! Learning by struggling is very powerful. Hopefully we create the perfect environment to get started here at Treehouse, and in time, hopefully a great reference library as well.

The upcoming Android app will hopefully have more pertinent information for you: http://teamtreehouse.com/roadmap
