Android Build a Simple Android App (2014) Getting Started with Android Introducing Android and Java

build a simple android. There is no any space for me to provide an answer. it browses instead of showing a keyboard

The moment I click between the opening and closing inverted commas to type my name, the browser starts to browse Instead of providing a space to type. More so I tried to check my work trying to find the problem and there is a BUMMER message saying do not leave a blank space. I have not yet done anything. May you please assist me.

"Java Variables Explained" challenge: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/build-an-android-app/getting-started-with-android/troubleshooting-java

"A Brief Introduction To Android Tools" video. This has a multiple choice quiz after it, rather than a code challenge. My tablet sticks at the end of the video too, so here's the link for that: http://teamtreehouse.com/library/android-tools-2

The next three videos show you how to set up Android studio on a Mac, Windows or Linux machine. There's no quizzes for those.

The next quiz is after the next video, running the Fun Facts project: http://teamtreehouse.com/library/android-project-basics

That gets you to the end of the section. If you can't get to the computer to carry on and need to use your tablet, let me know and I'll post links to the other quizzes and challenges. Can you get the videos OK?



Are you trying to do the challenge at the end of this video on a mobile device?

I'll see if I can do that ...


I've tried that on my phone and tablet. I can play the video but when the video ends, it just stays on the same screen rather than progressing to the code challenge.

I don't know if this is general behaviour on mobile devices or just a problem with this one video.

To help you progress, the code challenge is here, assuming that is the problem you're faced with.

Either way, Ben Jakuben could probably do with having a look at the mobile implementation of the video's ending and its passage to the challenge.


That link to the code challenge works fine for me on both mobile phone and tablet.

I am trying it on a tablet

OK - try my link above - that should help you do the challenge. And if you get the same problem in future videos, come and ask and I will send you the links that you need.
