  • Patent number: 9280255
    Abstract: Presentation descriptions are provided to an operating system of a computing device to present outputs associated with the applications in an organized and intuitive manner to the user. The presentation descriptions provide the operating system with information about the structure and meaning of the output element. The task of organizing at least part of the output elements associated with applications is delegated to the operating system. The operating system analyzes the presentation descriptions, and organizes the output elements associated with the applications at least partly based on the presentation descriptions.

  • Publication number: 20130212099
    Abstract: A system and a method are disclosed for a search manager included in a mobile computing device. The search manager receives search text and a selection of one or more data sources and determines whether the selected data source include data matching, or similar to, the received search text. The search manager may dynamically modify a search database identifying data sources to be searched as data is received from a data source. Additionally, the search manager may communicate received search text to one or more applications stored by the mobile computing device, allowing an application to initiate an action using the search text. The search manager may also receive data from external sources identifying alternate search terms based on received search text.

  • Patent number: 8126885
    Abstract: A method, a device and a computer readable storage medium for enhancing user experience associated with searching data associated with one or more applications/services accessible on a mobile computing device. The result of the search is selected organized based on previous history of user actions to present the most relevant data entries to the user. Options associated with the searched data entries are also selected and organized based on previous history of user actions to facilitate performing of the user's intended functions on the mobile computing device. Further, searched data entries may be presented to the user in an argument oriented presentation mode where the searched data entries represent arguments for functions or a function oriented presentation mode where the searched data entries represent functions to be performed on the mobile computing device.
