Understanding an Android application

There are five building blocks to any Android application: the Intent, the Activity, the Service, the Content Provider and the Broadcast Receiver. The Activity is a screen enabling Intent of the user to indulge in activities, which enables Service to happen in the background with data support from the Content Provider, while the Broadcast Receiver acts as a dormant observer for occurring intents. These five main components support the functioning of any Android application.
