  • Patent number: 11169665
    Abstract: Techniques for previewing and presenting content of different applications in a user interface are described. In an example, a computer system determines a presentation template defined for a page application. The page application is configured to present a page about a target application, and the page includes a preview area and a body area. The system receives a user selection of an icon in a menu, whereby the icon corresponds to the target application. The system then presents in the user interface contents based on data stored in local memory, whereby the contents are presented according to an arrangement specified by the presentation template for the preview area. The system then receives a user request for additional information about the target application, and subsequently presents at least a portion of the body area of the page based on an execution of the page application.

  • Publication number: 20210275899
    Abstract: A computer system including a content monitoring service of a menu application is provided. The content monitoring service pre-fetches data for a target application based on a data template defined for the target application, and stores the pre-fetched data in a cache of the menu application. The menu application presents a window in a first presentation state, where the window corresponds to the target application and includes content based on the pre-fetched data in the cache. The computer system further includes a window application that, upon a user selection of the window, receives a copy of the pre-fetched data from the cache and presents the window in a second state based on the data template.
