  • Publication number: 20130080954
    Abstract: A contact GUI is presented on a display of a device. The GUI displays visual representations of a set of contacts. The contacts can be ranked according to a ranking system and the visual representations of the contacts can be displayed in the GUI according to rank. The ranking can be based on previous interactions with the contact or an upcoming event associated with the contact. A user can transfer a file to a contact by dragging and dropping a file icon onto a visual representation for a recipient contact. The communication mode for the transfer can be determined manually by the user or automatically based on the contact's current online status. Selection of a visual representation of a contact exposes a window with a timeline display providing descriptors for communications with the contact.
