Android app title bar doesn't show when testing the app?

I'm creating an app, and when I build it and start it on my phone (a Sony Xperia Z1 with Android 4.4.4), the title bar doesn't show. All activities is rendered without the title bar, like this:

I'm using Android Studio, and in the editor, the title bar is visible. It just don't work when the app is being ran.

All help with this is appreciated!

Answer

I just found the answer. Each of my Activity classes extended Activity, and when changing that to ActionBarActivity, the action bar (called "title bar" by me) shows up. I changed those values when I created the classes, because I "was sure" that in all my other projects, the classes extended just Activity, and not ActionBarActivity, but I "was sure wrong".

Thanks everyone for your suggestions!
