No Indication of message send success or fail in sending message.

Ben Jakuben , After implementing the send method, I tried it out like in the video(halfway through it). I added the code for both the success toast and the failure alert dialog. My app runs however, there is no toast or alert dialog shown after tapping the send button. I checked logcat for errors and there are none. I logged inside the send method and it does log success so I am thoroughly confused. Please Help.

Following is my code for the send method:

protected void send(ParseObject message){ Log.i(Tag, "starting send message"); message.saveInBackground(new SaveCallback() {

        public void done(ParseException e) {
        if (e==null) {
            Toast.makeText(RecipientActivity.this, R.string.success_message, Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
            Log.i(Tag, " send message success");
        } else {
            AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(
            builder.setPositiveButton(android.R.string.ok, null).setTitle(R.string.error_selecting_file_title);
            AlertDialog dialog = builder.create();
            Log.i(Tag, " send fail");

You need .show() at the end of your Toast, I think.
