  • Patent number: 9990107
    Abstract: An electronic device displays a user interface that includes one or more user interface elements; detects a user input on a touch-sensitive surface that includes detecting a contact at a location that corresponds to a respective user interface element; and, in response: if the user input satisfies menu-display criteria, including a criterion that is satisfied when the contact has an intensity above a first intensity threshold, displays a first menu overlaid on the user interface; and, if the user input satisfies action criteria, wherein the action criteria are capable of being satisfied when the intensity of the contact is below the first intensity threshold, initiates performance of an action associated with the respective user interface element without displaying the first menu.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 9645732
    Abstract: An electronic device: displays, on a display, a user interface that includes one or more user interface elements; and detects a press input by a contact on a touch-sensitive surface at a location that corresponds to a respective user interface element. In response to detecting the press input, the device: if the respective user interface meets first action criteria including a criterion that the respective user interface element is associated with a single option associated with the press input, initiates performance of an action corresponding to the single option; and, if the respective user interface element meets second action criteria including a criterion that the respective user interface element is associated with a first number of options associated with the press input, where the first number is greater than one, displays a first menu overlaid on the user interface with a first set of selectable options.

  • Publication number: 20160259517
    Abstract: An electronic device displays, on a display, a map that is associated with a first orientation. The electronic device receives a touch input on a touch-sensitive surface, and, in response to receiving the touch input on the touch-sensitive surface, rotates the map on the display in accordance with the touch input. While rotating the map on the display in accordance with the touch input, in response to determining that a displayed orientation of the rotated map corresponds to the first orientation of the map, the electronic device generates a first tactile output.

  • Publication number: 20150199115
    Abstract: Information items in a file system are arranged into groups that are created according to a grouping component. A non-hierarchical view displays visual representations (e.g., icons, thumbnail images) of the information items arranged in visually delineated groups according to an arrange type that can be specified for each group. Various view formats are available including icon, list and column view formats. In each view format, a condensed mode can be selected for one or more groups, resulting in multiple visual representations of items being displayed in a fixed amount of screen space in the non-hierarchical view. In icon view, each condensed group includes a single row of visual representations that can be navigated separately from other groups in the non-hierarchical view.
