Run As has no options to Run as Android Application
Trying to run the Crystal Ball for the first time and I see Run As but there is no "Android Application" option for Run As

Inside your Package Explorer (window on the left), expand res folder of your project, then expand layout folder and select the activity_main.xml file (one click).
Now click on the little down arrow on the right of the Run button, and you should be able to see the Run As... and then Android Application option.
Alternatively, right-click on your project folder in the Package Explorer, where you will also see the Run As... option.
While in the Main_Activity class, just click the large Green Run Button that looks like a play button. Don't worry about the drop down. When you click on run the first time, a small dialog box will appear confirming how you want to run the application. Select Android Application and click on OK .
The next time you can click run an it will simply execute.
Hope that helps.
