Screen capture of install process on API 19

Mac OS X v10.9.5
AndroidPlayer v1.0 (1)

1. Drag APK
2. Confirm install in dialog (see install-pending notification and install-complete notification)
3. Try to find app on emulator

It seems like it is installing the app. But, after it says that it has, you cannot seem to find the app in the list of apps on the device. The app didn't show after an emulator restart as well.

Attached is a GIF capture of what I was seeing. Capture was API 19 emulator, but it also happened on API 16 emulator.

Apk installation error reporting has been added in version 0.1.1, which should alert you as to why the app failed to install.
