I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
A "parse error" means the compiler couldn't parse your source file (i.e. there is an error in the code).
Check for any coding errors or typing mistakes.
Try compiling just a few lines of code at a time to check for errors.
Check that your brackets match and there's no semi-colons missing, etc.
Let me know how you get on.

Thx for your suggestions Pete. I sent an earlier message explaining that my SE opened a Goigle Pkay account and was then able to distribute the apk and install it on lollipop.
