I'm not sure I can give you a really good explanation but it refers to the way the architecture of the android platform and programs work. Each program is encapsulated in their own virtual box meaning that they can't access resources, including other programs, outside of their program. This is why users have to give the programs explicit permissions to things like contacts, camera, sd storage, and so on. This is the best way I can explain it. Hope it helps. And if that isn't what you are asking about then sorry.

- Thanxbut then one more thing, how can we differentiate between sandbox and droidbox(I want to know something that can really make me differentiate between droidbox and sanddbox)May 22, 2012
- According to the Google Code page, Droidbox is a sandbox that nests inside the normal Android app sandbox. It apparently intercepts system calls and logs them so you can see what your app is doing security-wise.
The standard Android sandbox is part of the Android OS. Droidbox is an independent project that is made to work with Android, but is not part of the Android OS.May 22, 2012
