Are you struggling with this still?
I have had this problem a few times with apps of mine, it was usually becuase I was trying to be clever with themes in the android manifest (I hate themes , I can never get them to work :))
I would check you android manifest for a line like the following:
This could be either in the MainActivity section or the application section. The error is saying it should use an appCompat theme a useful stack overflow I found for my problem is here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21814825/you-need-to-use-a-theme-appcompat-theme-or-descendant-with-this-activity (not sure if you are having the same problem or not)
Hopefully this can get you on the right track if nothing else
