Implement Content Provider in Android

Karan Balkar
Hey everyone! As developers, we often need to create applications that can share data with other applications residing on the Android device. A content provider is similar to a database where one can query it, edit its content, as well as add or delete content using insert, update, delete, and query methods. As mentioned on the developer's page, Content providers manage access to a structured set of data. They encapsulate the data, and provide mechanisms for defining data security.
