Working with Intents

An Intent object encapsulates a task request used by the Android operating system. When the startActivity() method is called with the Intent parameter, the Android system matches the Intent action with appropriate activity on the Android system. That activity is then launched.

The Android system handles all intent resolution. An intent can be very specific, including a request for a specific activity to be launched, or somewhat vague, requesting that any activity matching certain criteria be launched. For the finer details on intent resolution, see the Android documentation.
