Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
It is taking a long time for the android emulator to show the locked screen.
After I launch the emulator all it shows is the logo. In the messages box I see the following:
Device connected: emulator-5554 Device Android442 [emulator-5554] is online, waiting for processes to start up..
It's taking about 2-5 minutes for the locked screen to show after I launch the emulator.
My hardware specs are the following: Processor: AMD A4-3340M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 2.00 GHz
Installed Memory (RAM) 4.0 GB (3.48 GB usable)
System Type: 64-bit Operating System
I'm thinking it's just a slow computer performance, now i have an app idea at least :-)

When I used the built in Android emulator with 4GB RAM, it took that long as well. There is a course in the Android Library called Android Tools that covers a third party emulator called Genymotion which is much quicker than the built in emulator.
I would encourage you to take a look at that as an option if a RAM upgrade is not possible at this time.
Thanks for the quick reply Ken, I'll try that.
