Concurrent programming in Android: Android App Development: RESTful Web Services

In every Android app, there's a single foreground thread known as the main thread. This thread manages the user interface. All visual elements such as layouts and widgets are a part of the main thread and most of the code that you write in an activity class is executed on that thread. But it's only a single thread, which means only one thing can be happening at a time. When you need to do things in an Android app that might take a few seconds, such as a network request, you have to make sure you're not blocking the main thread.
