Hey Tremayne!

I can see that you're using Android 1.1.0 which is a different version than Ben is using in this course, due to the different Android version, things will look different to you than they do on Ben's screen.

The newer versions of Android have had a variety of design changes and therefore, this is what causes the difference.

To add to this, some of the newer features in Android will only work on newer versions of Android - this is right now, it's recommended to use Android 4.1.x as the Minimum SDK Version:

Hopefully, this should help clear some things up but, if you have any more questions, give me a shout and I'll try my best to help :)
