Which app theme are you using?

I know this question is a bit beside the point of the video, but which app theme is this? For some reason when I set up the project myself I get a completely grey screen with no action bar.

Hey Alex! Looks like it's Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar.

Here's styles.xml:

    <!-- Base application theme. -->
    <style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
        <!-- Customize your theme here. -->
        <item name="colorPrimary">@color/colorPrimary</item>
        <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/colorPrimaryDark</item>
        <item name="colorAccent">@color/colorAccent</item>

and colors.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <color name="colorPrimary">#3F51B5</color>
    <color name="colorPrimaryDark">#303F9F</color>
    <color name="colorAccent">#FF4081</color>

Also, if you want to see any of the behind-the-scenes code, you can always flip over to the download tab and take a look at the project files.
