Can you be more specific on what is happening?

It seems to me that your android emulator starts, but the app you're building doesn't start. If this is the case, what happens when you try to run the app?

yes. nothing actually shows in the console and the problem tab. and i don't know why. but the emulater works fine. You can see where i'm driving at by watching the video. (https://teamtreehouse.com/library/build-a-simple-android-app/getting-started-with-android/android-setup-and-the-crystal-ball-project-2) i did everything in the video but the text i edited doesnt show on the android emulater when i run it.
