Hi! I followed the directions (or so I think) given by the first "adding an image" video but I have an error message I can't resolve in the AndroidManifest.xml file.

The error message is that MainActivity is not a class in my "com.example.crystalball" package, but it most certainly is and I have no idea why it won't recognize it. I have been at it for hours and I have programmed in java before and have a CS degree, so I'm no novice (though I pursued other degrees after so I diverged from my CS track, so I'm also no expert either).

I think the problem is that in the Activity Nodes section of the manifest I don't have MainActivity there as a node and when I tried to add it, it is nowhere to be found. So I guess what I really need to do is to find out how to add this node...

Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi...you're my only hope...

<manifest package="com.example.crystalball" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0" xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"> . . . <activity android:name=".MainActivity" android:label="@string/app_name" android:screenOrientation="portrait" > //activity is where I get the error message that is unhappy with MainActivity
