Happy 7th Birthday, Twitter!

This day, 7 years ago, Jack Dorsey was setting up the now super popular social network. I don't think anybody, especially Jack Dorsey would think that it would become this popular. There are over 200 Million active users, which produce over 400 Million tweets per day. Twitter has released a video celebrating their birthday and how Twitter influenced the world. And once again, Happy 7th Birthday to Twitter.

You can easily add photos to your notes and you can make checklists, all while being shown in either the list view or the grid view. The Android App for Google Keep is compatible with devices running Android 4.0.3 and up.

DESIGN: What is going to look and feel like?
There are some reports saying the Samsung S4 will use the same "plastic design" as the Galaxy S3 because of all the success.
