Create a bound service: Android Development: Concurrent Programming

You can think of a bound service as the server in a client-server style application. The user sees the activity—the user interface—while the service provides back-end processing. By default, a bound service only runs as long as its bound activity stays alive. When the activity the service is bound to shuts down, the service becomes unavailable. It might not be completely destroyed right away, but it’s no longer accessible to the application and is eligible to be shut down by the app framework.
