Embodiment

Now describe embodiments of the invention in detail, the example of described embodiment is shown in the drawings, and wherein, identical label refers to identical parts all the time.Below by referring to accompanying drawing, described embodiment will be described, to explain the present invention.

Fig. 1 illustrates according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention for managing the block diagram of the equipment of application in the terminal.With reference to Fig. 1, the equipment according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention for managing application in the terminal comprises: change detection unit 10, application management unit 20 and output unit 30.Exemplarily, here terminal can be the portable terminals such as mobile phone (comprising smart mobile phone), panel computer, personal digital assistant, portable player, handheld device, also can be notebook computer, desktop computer, terminal that televisor equidimension is larger.

In above-mentioned application management equipment, change detection unit 10, for for the application of installing in terminal, detects the situation that described application is switched to other application respectively.Particularly; when user uses certain application-specific, need sometimes to be switched to Another Application to carry out the process of being correlated with, such as; when user is when using browser to read information, often can need to be switched to notepad appli-cation to carry out the record of material particular in midway.Or, when user uses microblogging to apply, if user expects that issue one is inserted with the microblogging of picture, then can be switched to from microblogging application and repair figure and should be used for carrying out landscaping treatment to picture.Above-mentioned switching can occur in the current application at front stage operation and current between the application of running background, also can occur between the current application at front stage operation and current application of not opening.Correspondingly, user, in order to perform above-mentioned switching, can need to perform corresponding operation, exemplarily, change detection unit 10 by detect above-mentioned corresponding operation to detect the current application at front stage operation and other apply between switching.In addition, as preferred exemplary, user manually can arrange change detection unit 10 and whether perform change detection to certain application.

According to exemplary embodiment of the present invention, for each application of installing in terminal, change detection unit 10 can detect the situation that each application described is switched to other application respectively.Correspondingly, application management unit 20 for obtaining for the switch instances that the application of installing in terminal detects the associated application that described application is often switched to based on by change detection unit 10, and creates the quick switching entrance being used for being switched to described associated application rapidly from described application.

Exemplarily, the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10 can comprise the number of times that each application is switched to other application respectively.In order to embody the validity of above-mentioned number of times better, exemplarily, change detection unit 10 by with special time period be detect in the cycle and upgrade each application be switched to respectively other application number of times.Such as, change detection unit 10 can seven days for the cycle detect each be applied in seven days be switched to respectively other application number of times (such as, application A be switched in seven days application B reach 10 times, be switched to application C reach 95 times, be switched to application D and reach 15 inferior), correspondingly, application management unit 20 can obtain based on above-mentioned number of times and be applied in the associated application that is often switched in nearest seven days (namely, for application A, its associated application be often switched to is application C).Here, the described cycle can be arranged by user, or automatically completes setting by the operating system of terminal.

As another example, the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10 can comprise the time that each application is switched to other application at every turn.Particularly, the switching between applying, then change detection unit 10 can detect which application time of switching and occurring and switching are sent between, such as, 2 pm 15 points on June 4th, 2013, application A occurs to the switching of applying B.In this way, the each application of the sustainable detection of change detection unit 10 is switched to the concrete time of other application, thus application management unit 20 can obtain based on the switch instances detected each application and other apply between the characteristic that distributes in time of switching.Such as, the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10 not only can embody the number of times being switched to application B from application A, and reflect whether every day all there occurs from application A to the switching of applying B, the information such as the average that the switching times even reflecting application A to application B distributes in time and variance.In this case, application management unit 20 can be determined constantly by the associated application be often switched within a period of time based on the switch instances detected, and gets rid of the associated application be only repeatedly switched within some day.Such as, if application management unit 20 is judged based on the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10: within the past seven days, although the switching times occurred between application A and application B is a lot, but these switch interior generation some day focusing mostly on and occur in wherein, then application B can be got rid of outside associated application, thus obtain more reliable associated application set.

Exemplarily, when the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10 only comprise application be switched to respectively other application number of times time, determine that validity that associated application detects (such as to improve further, the accidental application repeatedly switched in some day is got rid of outside associated application), for the application of installing in terminal, application management unit 20 also determines the application often used together with described application within nearest one period of schedule time, and obtain in the application used together with described application, the associated application that described application is often switched to, thus create the quick switching entrance being used for being switched to described associated application rapidly from described application.Here, application management unit 10 application that can will run the application on (on foreground or backstage) simultaneously and be considered as using together.Further, described nearest one period of schedule time can be determined according to arranging of user, such as, is set to nearest three days or nearest one week.

Exemplarily, application management unit 20 can for each application arrange special variable with determine itself and other apply be whether often together with the application that uses.Particularly, for application A, application management unit 20 can arrange variable mAB with determine to apply A and application B be whether often together with the application that uses, if occur at least one times from application A to the switching of application B (such as in every day, when within every day, first time occurs from application A to the switching of application B), then the value of variable mAB can be increased by 1 by application management unit 20; Otherwise, then keep the value of mAB constant.By the way, can while counting the switching times from application A to application B, obtain the information about switching the number of days occurred, thus effectively get rid of the application (such as, getting rid of the associated application of application B as application A when the value of mAB is only 1) only switched within some day repeatedly.

Situation about more than showing for being switched to other application from application-specific detects, and obtains the situation of associated application thus, but the present invention is not limited to this.

Such as; in practice; the switching of application also can be switched to application B according to from application A; and the order again switching response A performs; such as; when user use browser read information time, often can need midway be switched to notepad appli-cation to carry out the record of material particular, and record complete after switch back browser application with continue reading information.As can be seen here, switching is often occur in pairs, and that is, the switching between application usually comprises from application A to the switching of application B and the situation switching response A from application B simultaneously.For above-mentioned situation, the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10 can comprise: after application-specific is switched to other application respectively, switches back again the situation of described application-specific from other application described.Correspondingly, application management unit 20 can obtain the associated application that described application is often switched to based on the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10, and creates the quick switching entrance being used for being switched to described associated application rapidly from described application.

Particularly, the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10 can comprise occur each application be switched to respectively other application again from described other application switches back described in each apply this number of times switched back and forth; Or the above-mentioned time point switching generation back and forth can be comprised.That is, for situation about switching back and forth, change detection unit 10 and application management unit 20 can carry out detecting and managing according to mode like unidirectional application class, and difference is only that switching refers to two-way switching.

In addition, except application-specific be switched to respectively other application after, again outside the direct situation switching back described application-specific from other application described, the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10 also can comprise: after described application-specific is switched to other application respectively, switches back the situation of described application after execution needs the operation of Temporary Response from other application described.Particularly, if after being switched to notepad appli-cation from browser application, user needs suddenly to answer incoming call or check the information received, then may before switching back browser application from notepad appli-cation, first can perform the operation (e.g., answering call, browsing information etc.) of temporary needs response.For above-mentioned situation, according to the type of the described operation performed, change detection unit 10 can determine whether described operation is the operation needing Temporary Response, if be defined as the operation needing Temporary Response, then can neglect the execution of these operations, using the operation of such as " browser-> notepad->(needs the operation of Temporary Response)-> browser " this form also as the switching detected.

Above-mentioned situation about switching back and forth can be detected respectively for each should being used for, or, in order to improve efficiency of the present invention further, the switch instances obtained about the statistics switched back and forth between two methods A and B that switch in pairs by can be considered.Such as, can survey and be switched to from application A the situation that application B also switches response B again, and determine whether application A forms associated application each other with application B based on this situation.

In addition, exemplarily, the application of installing in terminal starts when front stage operation, application management unit 20 can obtain the associated application that described application is often switched to based on the switch instances detected by change detection unit 10, and creates the quick switching entrance being used for being switched to described associated application rapidly from described application.Or, application management unit 20 all can obtain the associated application that described application is often switched to when each application starts at front stage operation, but by with special time period be the cycle (such as, with seven days for the cycle) obtain the associated application that described application is often switched to, in this case, exemplarily, the described cycle can be synchronized with change detection unit 10 for detecting the cycle of switch instances.Particularly, suppose that the described cycle is set as from zero point in morning on every Mondays to some night 12 on every Sundays, then at the end of one-period, the switch instances of application is updated to the switch instances detected for a week in the past by change detection unit, simultaneously, application management unit 20 automatically can obtain based on the switch instances after upgrading the associated application that described application is often switched to, and creates the quick switching entrance being used for being switched to described associated application rapidly from described application.That is, in this case, the process of application management unit 20 does not need to be in premised on front stage operation by related application, and automatically can carry out according to the cycle set.

In application management equipment according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, output unit 30 is for being supplied to user by the quick switching entrance created by application management unit 20.Here, exemplarily, described quick switching entrance can be added to the menu corresponding to described application or shortcut list.Particularly, when application-specific starts at front stage operation, can the menu corresponding to described application-specific be entered according to the operation of user or show the shortcut list corresponding with described application-specific, or can automatically show described menu or shortcut list in applicable position on a terminal screen, and not need user to perform any operation.By the way, can be provided for user the quick switching entrance being switched to its associated application rapidly from the current application at front stage operation.However, it should be understood that to user provides the quick mode switching entrance to be not limited to above-mentioned example, can adopt and in any suitable manner the quick switching entrance created is supplied to user.In addition, in described menu or shortcut list, described quick switching entrance according to corresponding switching times from big to small or switching frequency (such as, in special time period average every day the number of times that switches) order from high to low arranges, thus make the quick switching entrance corresponding to the application be the most often switched to be come foremost or be easy to the position selected most, by that analogy.

Exemplarily, change detection unit 10 shown in Fig. 1, application management unit 20 and output unit 30 can be implemented as relevant hardware component, or, described unit can adopt the programming in logic device (such as CPLD or FPGA device) based on hardware design or programming to realize, and the digital signal processor (device such as such as DSP) with related operation ability also can be utilized to realize.Or, the mode of software programming can be adopted to realize above-mentioned unit.

Fig. 2 illustrates according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention for managing the process flow diagram of the method for application in the terminal.Here, the method shown in Fig. 2 can realize by application management equipment as shown in Figure 1, also can be realized by computer program in the terminal.Exemplarily, here terminal can be the portable terminals such as mobile phone (comprising smart mobile phone), panel computer, personal digital assistant, portable player, handheld device, also can be notebook computer, desktop computer, terminal that televisor equidimension is larger.

Particularly, at operation S10, for the application of installing in terminal, detect the situation that described application is switched to other application respectively.Particularly; when user uses certain application-specific, need sometimes to be switched to Another Application to carry out the process of being correlated with, such as; when user is when using browser to read information, often can need to be switched to notepad appli-cation to carry out the record of material particular in midway.Or, when user uses microblogging to apply, if user expects that issue one is inserted with the microblogging of picture, then can be switched to from microblogging application and repair figure and should be used for carrying out landscaping treatment to picture.Above-mentioned switching can occur in the current application at front stage operation and current between the application of running background, also can occur between the current application at front stage operation and current application of not opening.Correspondingly, user, in order to perform above-mentioned switching, can need to perform corresponding operation, exemplarily, by detect above-mentioned corresponding operation to detect the current application at front stage operation and other apply between switching.

According to exemplary embodiment of the present invention, for each application of installing in terminal, the situation that each application described is switched to other application respectively can be detected in the manner described above.In addition, as preferred exemplary, user manually can arrange whether perform change detection to certain application.

Exemplarily, the switch instances detected at operation S10 can comprise the number of times that each application is switched to other application respectively.In this case, by being detect the number of times that each application is switched to other application respectively the cycle (such as, with seven days for the cycle) with special time period.Here, the described cycle can be arranged by user, or automatically completes setting by the operating system of terminal.

Fig. 3 illustrates the process flow diagram of the method detecting switch instances according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

With reference to Fig. 3, at operation S101, determine detecting for the application of installing in terminal the cycle that it is switched to the switch instances of other application according to the instruction of user or arranging of system, particularly, the number of times that each application is switched to other application respectively can be detected based on the cycle determined.Here, exemplarily, the described cycle can be defined as seven days.

Then, at operation S102, the number of times that each application is switched to other application respectively can be detected according to the cycle determined, and when one-period stops, upgrade at operation S103 the switch instances detected in the one-period just stopped.

Should be understood that the flow process shown in Fig. 3 is only an example, and the present invention can adopt any suitable cuts detection methods to understand use habit during user's switch application, and then solve technical matters of the present invention.

Such as, the switch instances detected at operation S10 also can comprise the time that each application described is switched to other application at every turn.In this way, the switch instances detected can not only embody for each other application switching sum but also embody the characteristic switching and distribute in time, thus better for determining the use habit of user.Due to each time switched can be detected, therefore, in order to reduce computational burden, the switching times of statistics and corresponding time reset by the mode by manually arranging, or, periodically can add up the switching times added up and corresponding time, and constantly update.

Referring again to returning Fig. 2, at operation S20, obtain based on the switch instances detected for the application of installing in terminal the associated application that described application is often switched to.
