How to set app icon and apply customized theme using AIDE

I am a beginner ,and wanted to develop an app please help

Setting your app’s icon is a bit easy. Add an icon to either drawable or mipmap folder and then in manifest:
<application
android:name=".MyApp"
android:allowBackup=“true”
android:icon="@mipmap/my_icon"

Customizing your theme: in styles.xml

<style name="ThemeBaseLight" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light">
        <item name="colorPrimary">@color/colorPrimary</item>
        <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/colorPrimaryDark</item>
        <item name="android:windowBackground">@color/window_background</item>
        <item name="accentColor">@color/colorAccent</item>
    </style>

Then add the colors to the colors.xml

    <color name="window_background">#F1F1F1</color>
    <color name="colorPrimary">#3F51B5</color>
        <color name="colorPrimaryDark">#303F9F</color>
        <color name="colorAccent">#F50057</color>

Then in manifest, apply this style
<application
android:name=".MyApp"
android:allowBackup=“true”
android:icon="@mipmap/my_icon"
android:theme="@style/ThemeBaseLight"

Thank you v. Much for your help.
I am facing error in styles.xml file


Will you please help me in this

Add the appcompat library to your app module’s build.gradle

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])

    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:25.+'
  }

Your screenshot also says there is an error in the colors xml file. Identify the error and remove it. In your case, it might be an extra > somewhere.

Thanks again for your help.
