First of all, please set your Appium Log Level to "Debug" which you can find this option in Windows > Katalon Studio Preferences > Katalon > Mobile to generate debug logs of Appium. After this change is applied, retry your record/spy session and then open generated .appium file in the project folder.
Somewhere in this file you are likely will see these lines:
The root cause is Katalon Studio can't start application due to incorrect package and activity by default, so you need to add additional settings to desired capabilites:
- Navigate to Mobile settings (Project > Settings > Execution > Default > Mobile > Android)
