  • Patent number: 10146404
    Abstract: In a mobile device, the text entered by users is analyzed to determine a set of responses commonly entered by users into text applications such as SMS applications in response to received messages. This set of responses is used to provide suggested responses to a user for a currently received message in a soft input panel based on the text of the currently received message. The suggested responses are provided before any characters are provided by the user. After the user provides one or more characters, the suggested responses in the soft input panel are updated. The number of suggested responses displayed to the user in the soft input panel is limited to a total confidence value to reduce user distraction and to allow for easier selection. An undo feature for inadvertent selections of suggested responses is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20120304074
    Abstract: An integrated symbols user interface (UI) provides a collection of different symbols for inputting symbols into messages, such as email message, IM messages, and SMS text messages. The integrated symbols UI may group symbols in a number of different category panes. Additionally, the integrated symbols UI may provide a history pane with previously used symbols. Only a portion of the integrated symbols UI may be displayed on a display screen of device at a time. A user may seamlessly pan over the integrated symbols UI to move between the panes. In some embodiments, the integrated symbols UI may also include a category list pane that allows a user to navigate directly to a particular category pane or the history pane.
