Introduction of services and broadcast in Android

In this article, I am going to show you how to start services and broadcast them through Intent class. Here, there is one single interface and three buttons named startService stopService and broadcast. These two things are started through intent class and its object is used to startActivity along with. I am using Toast class which is used for giving the flash message on the screen that the usual user has seen during sending e-mail.Toast is called by makeText() method in which three values are passed separated by comma(,) operator and another is that using methods such as onStartCommand and onDestroy in useServices.java file
