AndroidIntentService

Syntax

  1. <service android:name=".UploadS3IntentService"android:exported="false" />

Remarks

An IntentService provides a simple way to offload work on a background thread. It handles everything about receiving requests, putting them in a queue, stopping itself, etc. for you. It is also easy to implement, making it the perfect thing to use when you have time-consuming operations to do that don't belong on the Main (UI) thread.
