  • Patent number: 10255267
    Abstract: A method includes displaying a set of one or more suggestions including one or more character strings that are suggested replacements for a first set of one or more entered characters. The method further includes: while displaying the set of suggestions, receiving one or more additional entered characters; and after receiving the additional entered characters, updating the set of suggestions based on an updated set of entered characters that includes the first set of entered characters and the additional entered characters. The updating comprises changing a first suggestion in the set of suggestions from a first character string that is a suggested replacement for the first set of entered characters to a second character string that is a suggested replacement for the updated set of entered characters.

  • Publication number: 20170357335
    Abstract: An electronic device with a touch-sensitive display and one or more sensors to detect signals from a stylus associated with the device: displays a user interface in a viewing mode, the user interface including a content region and a first control region; while displaying the user interface in the viewing mode, detects an input by a first contact on the touch-sensitive display; and, in response to detecting the input: when the first contact is a stylus contact in the content region: changes from the viewing mode to an editing mode; and displays, in the content region, a mark drawn in accordance with movement of the first contact; and when the first contact is a non-stylus contact in the content region: remains in the viewing mode; and performs a navigation operation in the content region in accordance with movement of the first contact without displaying the mark.

  • Publication number: 20170185768
    Abstract: Techniques for handling security of an application and its extension are described. In one embodiment, an application manager of an operating system running within a data processing system launches an application in a first sandboxed environment based on a first security profile associated with the application. In response to receiving a request from the application for accessing a function of an application extension that is associated with the application, the application manager launches the application extension in a second sandboxed environment based on a second security profile associated with the application extension. The application manager is to individually enforce security and manage resources of the application and the application extension in the first and second sandboxed environments based on the first and second security profiles, respectively. The second security profile specifies resources fewer than the first security profile.

  • Publication number: 20160357325
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer readable media to reduce latency in a graphics processing pipeline of an electronic device having a touch-sensitive input device and a display are described herein. In one embodiment, the method includes obtaining a temporal sequence of multi-touch scan data, processing the multi-touch scan data, determining an “optimal” time to deliver the processed multi-touch scan data to the relevant application(s) running on the device for processing, animating the resultant graphical changes that are determined by the application(s) based on the multi-touch input, and rendering the determined graphical changes to a frame buffer.

  • Publication number: 20160342321
    Abstract: Techniques, systems, and methods for allowing a user to select amongst different collection views and to animate the transition from one collection view to another. To select a different collection view, the user may provide a certain gesture on the display screen which causes the items displayed in the current collection view to transition in an animated fashion to a new collection view selected by the particular gesture. The particular type of animation between different collection views depends upon the manner in which the items in each collection view are defined in their respective layouts and the manner that facilitates a relatively seamless transition of the items from one layout to another layout.

  • Publication number: 20160070466
    Abstract: The embodiments herein describe a mode of applications on the portable electronic device that improves single-handed operation of the devices. For example, the embodiments herein describe an ergonomic mode of an application that displays the graphical user interface (GUI) of the application in a bottom area of the display screen of the electronic device to allow the user to more easily interact with objects. The embodiments herein also describe an ergonomic mode of a keyboard displayed on the display screen of the portable electronic device. During the ergonomic mode of the keyboard, the keyboard is shifted towards a vertical edge of the display screen to allow a user to more easily reach keys of the keyboard that were previously unreachable without the user switching to two handed operation of the device or repositioning the electronic device in the user's hand.

  • Publication number: 20150346973
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed for displaying a graphical user interface (GUI) on a device display. The display has dimensions of a first size. The GUI is configured for output on a display of the first size, but the device reports the second size. The reporting is responsive to receiving a request to configure the GUI for output on a display of a second size, according to some embodiments. The GUI, configured for output on a display of the second size, is displayed on the device display that has dimensions of the first size.

  • Patent number: 8850572
    Abstract: Techniques for handling a file associated with a program are described herein. According to an aspect of the invention, in response to a request for accessing a file received through a first program, the file is stored in a first sandboxed storage area, where the file is to be accessed by a second program. An atomic move operation is then performed on the file that atomically moves the file from the first sandboxed storage area to a second sandboxed storage area, where the first sandboxed storage area is not accessible to the first program and second program. The second program is launched to access the file stored in the second sandboxed storage area, where the second sandboxed storage area is a part of a sandbox associated with the second program.
