Android Threads, Handlers and AsyncTask – Great Tutorial

Very interesting topic…
It’s important as Android will display an “Application not responding” (ANR) dialog if an activities does not react within 5 seconds. From this dialog the user can choose to stop the application.

Therefore all potentially slow running operations in an Android application should run in the background, e.g. via some way of concurrency constructs of the Java language or the Android framework. Potential slow operations are network, file and database access but also complex calculations.

Tutorial from the link below will teach how to use and handle the background processing….

Android Threads, Handlers and AsyncTask

I am interested in Android and Web development, Open Street Map editing and looking for new things connected to the maps and spatial data. I enjoy making stuff and understanding how the stuff works. I can code in many programming languages and I am really having fun of it. When having free time I am taking care of my apps and write some content on my blog. I enjoy the countryside, which is giving me opportunities for photography. My favourite motto from Albert Einstein is: "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."
