Hi bucky, When I am trying to run this app on my emulator it is saying that "Unfortunately My Application has stopped" every time. What should  I do?  Pls tell me quickly.

Because I have a AMD processor and not a intel. I can't use HAXM and therefore also not the Android Virtual Device. I'm using genymotion instead. Which works great regarding the emulation. But when I try to use the android device monitor it does not show the oncreate, onstart, etc.. It does show all other activities, but not those logs. Anybody have an idea why? And better yet a solution to do make it work?
