Questions:

When my SplashActivity opens the LoginActivity my app crashes.

The following is my SplashActivity.java:

package com.example.android.appName;

import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;

import java.util.Timer;
import java.util.TimerTask;

public class SplashActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_splash);

        Timer timer = new Timer();
        timer.schedule(new TimerTask() {
            public void run() {
                Intent intent = new Intent(SplashActivity.this, LoginActivity.class);
                startActivity(intent);
                finish();
            }
        }, 1500);
    }
}

and my LoginActivity.java:

package com.example.android.appName;

import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.KeyEvent;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuInflater;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.ProgressBar;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class LoginActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    private EditText usernameField = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.username),
                     passwordField = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.password);
    private TextView error = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.error);
    private ProgressBar progress = (ProgressBar)findViewById(R.id.progress);

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_login);
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
        MenuInflater inflater = getMenuInflater();
        inflater.inflate(R.menu.login_menu, menu);
        return true;
    }  

    @Override
    public boolean onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
        if (android.os.Build.VERSION.SDK_INT > 5
                && keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_BACK
                && event.getRepeatCount() == 0) {
            onBackPressed();
            return true;
        }
        return super.onKeyDown(keyCode, event);
    }

    public void exit(MenuItem item) {
        finish();
    }

    public void signIn(View view) {
        Intent intent = new Intent(this, MainActivity.class);
        startActivity(intent);
        finish();
    }
}

Part of AndroidManifest.xml:

<activity android:name=".SplashActivity"
    android:theme="@style/NoActionBar">
    <intent-filter>
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
    </intent-filter>
</activity>
<activity
    android:name=".LoginActivity"
    android:label="@string/title_activity_login" />
