Manage a thread's message queue: Android Development: Concurrent Programming

The Handler class lets you manage a thread's message queue. Each thread has a Looper object that receives and dispatches messages. For example, if the user clicks a button, that creates a message that the Looper receives and then dispatches to the appropriate part of the app framework that handles such things. A Handler lets you add messages to the queue, either right away or at particular times.
