I have an activity than invokes a service and I would like to pass some values to that service. In between activities I just pass values by adding extras to the intent and then using getIntent() on the new activity and reading the extras off it.
But getIntent() isn't a method of the service class. So is there a similar way to pass values from activity to service? I'd prefer to not have to bind it if possible as the service doesn't need to interact with the activity other then getting the initial passed parameters.
