Only get a Black screen when my app starts up

John Santora
downloaded and installed XCode 6.1.1
wrote a little app with a button and label on a blank screen. 
the app compiles, but only shows a black Simulator screen. 
then weird stuff appears on the Simulator scree - the name of my app in big letters, then fake icons to various apps. 
no sign of my Label and Button. 
I must be missing something big, since the IDE seems to be working for everyone else. 
Thanks in advance for any help with this.

This issue isn't related to the Swift language itself, so you're best off asking on Apple's developer forums or on the cocoa-dev mailing list, not here.

If you want a hint: the name of your app is probably part of the app's splash screen, and the icons are the simulator's Springboard/desktop. So it sounds like your app crashed or at least exited abruptly.
