      Short description: The goal of this exercise is to learn several ways to store data to be available for the application on the next run. The task is to create an Android service which periodically stores free memory and battery information in the SQLite database. Further, develop a simple Android application which has the ability to show either free memory or battery status as read from the database. User selection, whether to show free memory or battery status should be stored using Preferences of the application, and the same selection should be retained when the application is started for the second time.
