What is the difference between bindeservice and contentprovider? To share a functionality from one application to other application, which one to use?
both are useful
it is not a good practice to use started service if service wants to share some functionality with other components. binded services are far more faster and efficient than started service to share functionality with other components. it uses binders concept internally.
Note: Content providers are used to share data between 2 applications, not for sharing functionality.
