Libraries

On top of the kernel run a set of software libraries. These are used by the higher-level components of Android and are made available to developers to use when writing Android applications using the Android software development kit (SDK), which is discussed later in this chapter. These libraries include a version of the standard C library (libc), libraries for recording and playback of many popular media formats, graphics and web browser engines, font rendering, and more.
