Android Build an Interactive Story App (Retired) Finishing the User Interface Loading the First Page

I get a striked out line across the top of my code as well as at some points in the code. Reading the other questions I made the following changes.



ContextCompat.getDrawable(this, mCurrentPage.getImageId());

I also changed ActionBarActivity with AppCompatActivity at the top.

This solved some problems. But later my app crashes when i try to navigate away from the first page. I enter my name and it goes to the next activity. Now when I click on one of the two buttons the app crashes.

These two are the only places where I have deviated from bens code, I have a funny feeling that this is where the problem is as well.

I was able to solve my problem, however I dontknow how it worked. Initially since Im using the new android studio I had just one drawable folder so to be on the "safe side" I had put only the pictures of the highest resolution. I kept getting an error saying something like I have run out of memory which makes little sense to me. So i changed to the lowest resolution and it worked?

There is a memory limit for bitmaps some devices will have a limit as low as 16mb for an Application. You can read more about showing bitmaps efficiently here http://developer.android.com/intl/ru/training/displaying-bitmaps/index.html
