Accessing Other Application Functionality Using Context

The application Context provides access to a number of other top-level application features. Here are a few more things you can do with the application Context:

■ Launch Activity instances

■ Retrieve assets packaged with the application

■ Request a system service (for example, location service)

■ Manage private application files, directories, and databases

■ Inspect and enforce application permissions

The first item on this list—launching Activity instances—is perhaps the most common reason you use the application Context.
