  • Patent number: 9774995
    Abstract: A system for controlling a device to track the location of the device is provided. The system identifies an initial location of the device. The system then identifies a plurality of areas having different sizes. Each area encompasses the identified location. For each of the areas, the system registers the area with a location provider to receive a notification when the location provider detects that the device has left the area. Upon receiving a notification that the device has left an area, the system may repeat the process of identifying the location and the areas and registering the areas to continue tracking the location of the device.

  • Patent number: 8302014
    Abstract: An application displays a user interface (UI) component. A client can apply customizations to this UI component. After the client applies customizations to the UI component, the client modifies a solution set containing solutions that modify the UI component. After the client modifies the solution set, the application displays a new version of the UI component. Modifications provided by the solutions in the solution set are applied to the new version of the UI component. In addition, the customizations remain applied to the UI component without the client manually re-applying the customizations to the UI component.
