  • Patent number: 11416131
    Abstract: Methods and devices for selectively presenting a user interface or “desktop” across two devices are provided. More particularly, a unified desktop is presented across a device and a computer system that comprise a unified system. The unified desktop acts as a single user interface that presents data and receives user interaction in a seamless environment that emulates a personal computing environment. To function within the personal computing environment, the unified desktop includes a process for docking and undocking the device with the computer system. The unified desktop presents a new user interface to allow access to functions of the unified desktop.

  • Patent number: 11409737
    Abstract: An analytics system can include a display on which a plurality of images are shown, and an analytics application communicably coupled to the display. The analytics application can receive a question and hypotheses from a user using the display. The analytics application can also generate queries using a natural language module, and send the queries to a plurality of data sources. The analytics application can further receive data from the data sources in response to the queries, and evaluate the data to generate evaluated data. The analytics application can also present the evaluated data, and receive a selection of at least one data item of the evaluated data. The analytics application can further convert the at least one data item into evidence, receive a selection of the evidence applied to a hypothesis, and evaluate the hypothesis. The analytics application can also present an assessment that the hypothesis answers the question.

  • Publication number: 20210373715
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for displaying a desktop for a multi-screen device in response to opening the device. The window stack can change based on a change in the orientation of the device. The system can receive an orientation change that transitions the device from a closed state to an open state. A composite display can expand over the area of the two or more displays comprising the device when opened. A desktop expands to fill the display area and be displayed on the second of the displays after the device is opened.

  • Patent number: 11182046
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to gesture-based navigation through windows displayed on a mobile device by receiving a first gesture through a touch-sensitive screen of the mobile device. In response to receiving the first gesture, display of a first window of an ordered set of windows on a first display area of the touch sensitive screen can be stopped and display of the first window on the second display area of the touch sensitive screen can be started. In response to receiving a second gesture, display of a second window of the ordered set of windows on the first display area can be stopped and display of the second displayed window on the second display area can be started. The second displayed window on the second display area can at least partially obscures the first displayed window on the second display area.

  • Publication number: 20210165537
    Abstract: A dual-screen user device and methods for revealing a combination of selected desktops and applications on single and dual screens are disclosed. Desktops and applications can be shifted between screens by user gestures, and/or moved off of the screens and therefore hidden. Hidden desktops and screens can be re-displayed by other gestures. The desktops and applications are arranged in a window stack that represents a logical order of the desktops and applications providing a user with an intuitive ability to manage multiple applications/desktops running simultaneously. One embodiment provides an annunciator window extending across both screens in a dual screen configuration. The annunciator window provides alerts, notifications, and statuses of the device in an increased area thereby enhancing viewability of the information in the window. The annunciator window can be expanded over a selected screen to view full contents of the window without having to minimize or close running applications.

  • Patent number: 11010047
    Abstract: Presenting a plurality of windows on a display of a mobile device can comprise displaying a first window on the display. The first window can be a dual-display window displayed on both a first and second display portion of the display. In response to a touch gesture, a second window can be presented on at least one of the first and second display portions. When the second window is a dual-display window, the second window can be displayed in the first and second display portions. When the second window is not a dual-display window, the second window can be displayed on one of the first and second display portions and a third window can be displayed on another one of the first and second display portions. When the third window is a dual-display window, it can be displayed on the other one of the first and second display portions.

  • Publication number: 20200125313
    Abstract: Embodiments provide for a handheld device with a unified desktop for integrating the functionality of the handheld device with a larger computer system. When connected to a peripheral display and/or a display of the larger computer system, the handheld device provides a unified desktop displayed across the screen(s) of the handheld device and the peripheral display. The unified desktop unifies the functionality provided by the larger computer system and the handheld functionality, e.g., communication applications (e.g., phone, SMS, MMS). A user can seamlessly interact with applications, e.g., open, move, close, receive notifications, on the unified desktop whether the applications are displayed on the screens of the handheld device, or the peripheral display of the larger computer system.
