The application context provides access to a number of 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-level service provider (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 will use the application context.
