Hi Hakan

I can only spot one error with your code, you have placed the startStory() method inside your onCreate method which is corrected in the below example. Unsure if this solves your issue, let me know if it doesn't with more details if possible to help identify the issue.

package com.example.hakan.interactivestory;

import android.content.Intent;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.Toast;

import com.google.android.gms.appindexing.Action;
import com.google.android.gms.appindexing.AppIndex;
import com.google.android.gms.common.api.GoogleApiClient;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    private EditText mNameField;
    private Button mStartButton;



    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        mNameField = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.nameEditText);
        mStartButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button);

        mStartButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                String name = mNameField.getText().toString();
                startStory();
            }
        });

    }

    private void startStory() {
            Intent intent = new Intent(this, StoryActivity.class);
            startActivity(intent);
        }

    }
