My Android app needs to post data to another app. I want to find out what mechanism is available?

Specifically, below is the points

  • Data is stored in Sqlite database within my app.
  • I need to post the data to another app.
  • The size of the data sent to the app is under 20KB on each call, and the call is under 10 calls each day.
  • The recipient app will be open before my app is launched, but it might be not available when data is sent to it.

What mechanism I should consider? Please provide sameple code if possible.

I wonder if it is better to run the logic in a background task, instead of using the service below. What are the pros and cons?

OS: Lollipop
