I was playing around with the emulator, and I figured out what the action bar is. It is a bar at the top of the screen that has options specific to the app. For example, when you’re typing an email, and you select text, the action bar will pop up at the top of the screen with options like cut, copy, paste, select all, etc. – Tyler
