Emulator issues

Every time I launch the emulator I get these errors:

[2014-04-20 20:24:12 - CrystalBall] Failed to install CrystalBall.apk on device 'emulator-5554! [2014-04-20 20:24:12 - CrystalBall] (null) [2014-04-20 20:24:19 - CrystalBall] Failed to install CrystalBall.apk on device 'emulator-5554': null [2014-04-20 20:24:19 - CrystalBall] com.android.ddmlib.InstallException [2014-04-20 20:24:19 - CrystalBall] Launch canceled!

I have no clue why. Any suggestions?

One potential fix is to check (and set) the value for the SD card size in your AVD configuration: http://stackoverflow.com/a/12349017/475217

If you continue to have trouble, I'd suggest trying out Genymotion, which is a 3rd party emulator that usually works better than the default one. I recorded a stage about it in the Android Tools project: http://teamtreehouse.com/library/android-tools/getting-started-with-genymotion
