Manage multiple background threads: Android Development: Concurrent Programming

If you have multiple tasks or instances of a task to execute, you can line them up with something called a thread executor. This is part of the standard Java concurrency framework. There are other ways of doing the same thing, but the code for this is very simple. Start by creating a class that implements the Runnable interface. Put whatever code in its run() method you need to. In this case, do some logging and include a call to the sleep() method.
