  • Patent number: 10198854
    Abstract: A system described herein provides six degrees of freedom with respect to a three-dimensional object rendered on a multi-touch display through utilization of three touch points. Multiple axes of rotation are established based at least in part upon location of a first touch point and a second touch point on a multi-touch display. Movement of a third touch point controls appearance of rotation of the three-dimensional object about two axes, and rotational movement of the first touch point relative to the second touch point controls appearance of rotation of the three-dimensional object about a third axis.

  • Patent number: 10185488
    Abstract: Discussed herein is an information processing device that displays information in an effective manner on a display screen of the device. A portion of the total data is displayed on the screen when the total data exceeds the amount of data that can be displayed on the screen at a given time. The information processing apparatus characterizes the portions of data as already-read data portions and unread data portions, based on a speed of a scrolling operation performed when the corresponding data portion is displayed on the device. Further, the apparatus also provides a visual indication for each already-read data portion on the display screen of the device. Thus, a user can correctly identify data portions that have been already read and data portions that are yet to be read.

  • Patent number: 10175859
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a screen, a receiving unit that receives an operation performed on the screen, a display that displays a document having multiple pages on the screen on a page-by-page basis, a processing mode changing unit that, upon detecting a predetermined first operation on the document displayed on the screen, changes from a first processing mode that moves one page at a time to a second processing mode that moves multiple pages, and a moving unit that, upon detecting a predetermined second operation in the second processing mode, moves multiple pages within the document. As the predetermined first operation, the processing mode changing unit detects continued detection of a first position where a drag operation has ended, or detects, while the first position is detected, an operation performed at a second position different from the first position.

  • Patent number: 10114521
    Abstract: A method includes displaying, on a touch-sensitive display, a plurality of application icons in a first configuration at locations on a hexagonal grid in relation to an origin. The application icons have corresponding ranks based on their respective locations in relation to the origin. In response to detecting a movement of a user contact from a first position to a second position: the display of a first application icon at a first location is translated to a second position; a second configuration of the application icons is determined based on the first location and the second location; and the display of the application icons is transitioned from the first configuration to the second configuration. In the second configuration, no application icon except the first application icon is displaced by more than one location relative to the first configuration.

  • Patent number: 10088999
    Abstract: A system and machine-implemented method for providing a visual cue of overscrolling displayed content on an electronic device. When the end of a scrollable page or content has been reached, the visual cue corresponds to the user's physical scrolling input. The content in the window is effectively attached to the window so that when the end of the content is reached in one direction, the window containing the content is pulled in the same scrolling direction. The pulling in the scrolling direction occurs in a logarithmically decreasing manner, providing a tactile-like visual effect that the outer frame of the window is resisting the attempt to scroll further in the scrolling direction. The visual resistance effect may include squishing or stretching portions of the window without distorting the content within the window.
