  • Patent number: 11134138
    Abstract: A client device provides mapless user interfaces to show a service provider's progress in movement toward a start location. One type of mapless interface is a grid interface, which the device selects if the device is subject to low network connectivity. The grid interface includes graphics representing the start location and the service provider. The two graphics are displayed at their respective location coordinates on a coordinate grid. Because the grid interface does not include a map, it can be loaded relatively quickly even when the service requester device is experiencing low network connectivity.

  • Patent number: 10915221
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provides methods, computer program products, and a system for determining a probable user selection on a user interface and generating a functional shadow cursor that is displayed on the user interface at a determined location of most probable user selection. Embodiments of the present invention can be used to access a user interface, generate a shadow cursor on the user interface based on a generated transition graph, and disabling the original cursor. In response to receiving user feedback, embodiments of the present invention can remove and disable the shadow cursor and return the original cursor as the sole functioning cursor. In response to receiving user feedback, embodiments of the present invention can shift the generated shadow cursor to a next probable selection.
