Reycler views and card views

The recycler view replaces the good old list view. It provides more flexibility in how the elements of a list are shown, for example, as a grid and as horizontal or vertical items. Instead of rows, we can now choose to display cards wherever it is suitable.

In our app, each card should display some text about the entry and a thumbnail of the picture that we took. This is what this recipe will be all about.
