Could you please specify the errors you are receiving? This is certainly an unexpected behavior of the sample app and it needs to be exemplified by a screenshot or with the error of the message.
Also, for your convenience, refer to the repository of the completed app
if you need to compare your code to the finished version.
I look forward to your reply.
