Iconic list View gets very slow when a service (running music) starts in the background

I have an iconic list view which has lazy loading implemented. I have
used a wrapper class to improve its efficiency (wrapper class which
stores the ids of the list view) . My application is a media player
application where I have a list of songs and when the user clicks on
the songs the songs start playing (in the service which is in a
different background thread). When the songs start playing the list
view scrolling becomes really slow.

Please can any one let me know how we can optimize the scrolling of
the list view when a service is running in the background and if I am
missing on anything.

I have this code which starts the maps application and zooms in on D.C

Intent myIntent = new Intent("android.intent.action.VIEW",

What do I use to search for hospitals in the area?

I though I might be able to use

Intent myIntent = new Intent("android.intent.action.VIEW",

But that doesn't work
