As previously mentioned, Android applications can have multiple entry points.There is no main() function, such as you find in iPhone development. Instead, a specific Activity can be designated as the main Activity to launch by default within the AndroidManifest.xml file; we talk more about this file in Chapter 5,"Defining Your Application Using the Android Manifest File."

Other Activities might be designated to launch under specific circumstances.
