What is URI?
URI : Uniform Resource Indicator. Used to access or send data in Android.
Just like how we access the data stored in the web servers by using URLs (Uniform Resource Locators), Similarly we send or receive data in Android by using URI's
Some of the examples for URI's:
for telephone numbers we use "tel:<number>"
for content stored in databases we use "content:// ...."
for emails we use "email: <email>"
This is similar to how we access gmail by using "http://gmail.com"
