I downloaded the project files and unzipped the package to a location I chose.

In Android Studio, I chose "Open an existing project" from the startup splash screen and then selected the project folder that I just unzipped.

There were a few errors to work through due to newer versions of Gradle being available. I just asked Android Studio to fix those issues which is did.

Then there's one last issue to fix yourself. In build.gradle there's a line that says runproguard false. That needs to be changed to minifyEnabled false. Don't worry about why ... it just needs to be done. There's no need to share the pain of finding that solution; just the joy of fixing it!!

You should then be good to go. If not, shout back and I'll see what I can do.


Hi there,

Apologies but I don't understand your question. Have you downloaded the project files rather than writing the code along with the video?

If so, what are you seeing? Can you do a screen shot and post that in here?
