Leveraging Android Services

  • Grant Allen

Abstract

Android’s underpinnings of the Linux operating system extend to multiple areas of the platform, many of which you have explored already. As with almost every operating system in existence, Android provides for a specific class of program that runs independently of any user interface, running in the background to provide crucial functionality regardless of other activity. In Android these programs are called services, similar to the services concept in Windows, or the daemon concept in Unix and Linux.
