Hi,
Just installed the eclipse bundled on my laptop. Running on windows 8.

Now i just started off on the first project, just a blank project, and i want to test it out on my phone. Just click on "run" and see the messages below. But the problem is, i can't find the application on my phone. Did you missed out any steps?

It does not look like you missed anything. After installation an icon should appear on your home page of your device (if it is an app and not a widget). If it is installed it will be in your list of apps. If it is a widget, it will be in your list of widgets.

If there is no sign of it in your app menu, then you did not install it to your device. Are you using a virtual device? (This is the default for eclipse).
