[APP] 🎂 Famous People Born On Your Birthday!

Click here for more information

:computer: Introduction

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.

I saw the idea somewhere before, when there is a list of famous people born on a specific date. So, I was inspired to make this app.

My favourite actor Jack Black was born on my birthday.

FYI - @Gordon_Lu I know you were born on 30 February. But due to changing of time your birthday was replaced on 29th February. Then you realised that 29 February comes after every 4 years, so you changed your birthday to 28th February. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Jokes aside. @Gordon_Lu Amazing app

Great App thank you

Is there any date as '30 February' ? #off-topic

30 February= 1st March

Maths Logic :joy::joy::joy::joy:

Or we can just say in dinosaurs time there was 30th February or 31st February or 45th February :rofl::rofl:

Thank you all for your support! My app won App of the Month again in April.
