Android - Activity (UI Single Screen)


An activity is a plain Java class representing a single screen (known also as a presentation layer).

Every Activity is invoked by an Intent, regardless of how the user navigated there. You can get the Intent that started your activity by calling getIntent() and retrieve the data contained within the intent.
