  • Publication number: 20180364872
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to retrieving and displaying contextually-relevant media content. In some embodiments, a device receives a request to display contextually-relevant media and, in response, displays a representation of a collection of media items relevant to a context of the device. In some embodiments, a device displays a visual media item of a sequence of items and, in response to receiving a swipe gesture, displays a detail user interface comprising related content for the media item. In some embodiments, a device, while displaying a first detail user interface, displays an affordance corresponding to a plurality of individuals identified as having attended a first event, that when selected, causes display of visual media corresponding to a plurality of events attended by the individuals. In some embodiments, a device, in response to user input, obtains an automatically-generated collection of visual media and displays a corresponding affordance.

  • Patent number: 9824314
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, apparatuses, and systems determine that an indication that a received message was sent in response to another message is present in the received message, parse a stored message, in response to the indication being present, for at least a partial match between a subject of the received message and contents of a subject of the stored message, and for at least a partial match between sender and recipient participants of the received message and sender and recipient participants of the stored message, and display the received message as grouped with the stored message. A further exemplary feature includes parsing text of the received message for text that is redundant of text of the stored message, determining that a minimum threshold of consecutive matching characters has been reached, and displaying the received message with the consecutive matching characters at least partially hidden from view.

  • Patent number: 9706127
    Abstract: An electronic device that includes a touch-sensitive surface stores a plurality of sequences of images. The device displays a first representative image for a first sequence of images in a movable first area on a display. The device detects a gesture on the touch-sensitive surface, the gesture including movement by a contact that corresponds to movement in a first direction on the display. In response to detecting the gesture on the touch-sensitive surface: the device moves the first area in the first direction on the display; moves a movable second area in the first direction on the display; and, in accordance with a determination that sequence-display criteria are met, displays, in chronological order in the second area, at least some images for a second sequence of images acquired by the camera before acquiring a second representative image for the second sequence of images.

  • Publication number: 20150199371
    Abstract: Embodiments of tokenized search suggestions include generating, by at least one suggestion engine executing on a data processing system, first suggestions based on first text input in a text input flea The first suggestions are displayed on a display device and a selection of one of the first suggestions is received. The first text input is replaced with a first token corresponding to the selected one of the first suggestions. The at least one suggestion engine generates second suggestions based on second text input in the text input field and filters the second suggestions using the selected one of the first suggestions. The filtered selections are displayed on a display device.
