I'm a bit of an android hobbyist, teaching myself as I go etc.
So far all my apps have been pretty simple, using a handful of activities to do basic tasks
My question is, what does the Service or BroadcastReceiver class/feature give me?
An example of one of my apps : 2 tabs, one shows contacts, the other shows them on the map. How would I benefit from service/broadcastreceivers here? I'm doing a geocoding call, should I migrate that over to the service?
