Link Details

Android services stand apart from the typical Android application which includes an Activity and a rich user interaction. Services on the Android platform utilize background processing and communicate to listeners by firing Intents, updating content providers, and/or triggering notifications. The Activity that started the service can be inactive or even closed and the service will continue to run.
