it's taking infinite time for fun facts app to run first time on nexus 5 device that comes after running the code

okay, after all the steps when the code comes on screen and i click run (shift + f10) the code runs and an android device (nexus 5) comes up on screen but it;s then taking infinite time to display anything on that device except ANDROID.. What to do?

I had the same problem so I installed a different emulator. This can be done using the AVD Manager, then selecting the "Create Virtual Device" and picking something that is easier to emulate. I picked the 4" WVGA (Nexus 5). It loaded much faster.

Thank you so much. It really helped.
