Intent Service is used to perform one time task i.e when the task completes the service destroys itself .

Unbound Service gets starts by calling startService().

bounded Service gets starts by calling bindService().
Intent Service gets  starts by calling startService().

Unbound Service is stopped or destroyed explicitly  by calling stopService().

bound Service dependents on the component in which it is started.
