Crystal Ball App not starting

I'm working on the Android track and working on the Crystal Ball project, I've followed the course, done everything, but the app won't start. It gives me a black screen for a bit, then exits to the main screen. After that it gives me a notification that the Crystal Ball app didn't start. Why does this happen?

BTW I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S3 device for testing.

It could be a variety of thing, was there a bug report or more information from your IDE as to why that happened?

No, there is nothing that I can see as to why this happens.

Try closing all your other apps, or maybe even restarting your phone. That would fix it for me when I ran into those issues. I know it sounds silly, but "have you tried turning it off and on again" has been my motto with Android.

look in your log cat and see what exception it throws and then post it here

There's nothing in the LogCat there that I could find information from as to why this happens. And I have tried restarting my phone, but it still won't work.
