I do not want to focus on design, what really matters is your birthday and the concept of this application.
This application, or template, uses a Wikipedia API in the free API library to check famous people born on a specific date. We will allow the user to choose their own birthday, and then perform the API get request with the specific date. Then, we will launch a ListView to allow the user to choose different famous people. After the user has selected a celebrity, the app will redirect the user to a Wikipedia page of that celebrity.
Note that the application uses 2 web APIs - one to load the result into the label with Wikipedia api with Plain Text Search Results (thank you @SteveJG!), and one I just found myself, which gives me a list of famous people on a specific date. I really appreciate Steve's work, you may have noticed that I used his example in multiple apps.
The aiStarter emulator cannot perform complicated Web get requests, so I suggest you to use a Genymotion emulator, an Android Studio emulator or on an actual phone.
It does take a few seconds to load. As you can see, the list can go crazy long.
Credit for @SteveJG! He wrote the example of the first API I used.
