App with UI and background service

Hello Folks,

I want to develop an app with the following functionalities

- Start in background on device boot
- UI can be manually opened by the user
- The background process should keep on running even after the UI is quit
- The background service should send necessary notifications to the user even if the UI is closed

This is very similar to apps like Facebook, Whatsapp, BBM etc.

Please let me know, how to achieve this.
