And, the installation data may include an advertising application. When the advertisement application is installed in the terminal 100, the controller 180 can determine whether the event information received from the server 200 exists. When the event information is received, an advertisement application installed in advance based on the event information can be executed in the foreground area. In addition, when the advertisement information is received while the advertisement application is executed in the background area in advance, the controller 180 may move a part of the advertisement application to the foreground area.

4 is a flowchart illustrating an operation method of a terminal according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 4, a terminal 100 according to an embodiment of the present invention first installs a plurality of applications (S100), and activates a first application (S110).

The control unit 180 may install a plurality of applications based on the data received from the server 200. [ The control unit 180 may execute a plurality of application installation files received in the installation package data format and store the installation information in the memory 160. [

The control unit 180 can execute a plurality of applications installed in advance in the foreground region or the background region of the memory 160 according to a predetermined condition. For example, the control unit 180 may execute the advertisement application in the background area.

In an embodiment of the present invention, an application or some process of the application may be executed in the foreground area of memory to indicate to the user a state in which it is possible to display and interfere with the active state. In addition, a state in which an application or a part of a process of the application is executed in a background area of the memory and is not displayed to the user can be expressed as an inactive state. Then, an application or a part of processes of the application is switched from an inactive state to an active state, or an active state is referred to as activation.

According to this, the controller 180 can select the first application according to the user input and activate the selected first application. The control unit 180 can execute the first application process in the foreground area of the memory 160 or activate the first application process executed in the background area by switching to the foreground area of the memory 160. [

For example, the user can input an execution command of the first application by selecting a specific icon on the initial screen of the terminal 100 or inputting a specific key. The first application may be, for example, a text messaging application, a social network service application, a video playback application, a game application, a map application, an Internet application, or the like.

To explain more specifically, the Android OS is an example. The control unit 180 can execute and activate a plurality of applications on the Android OS. Each application can have an activation lifecycle. Each activation lifecycle can be toggled in the following order: onCreate, onStart, onResume, pause, stop, and onDestory.

When a plurality of applications are executed, the control unit 180 can control the activation lifecycle for each application. The control unit 180 may control the activation lifecycle for the first application to be onStart in order to execute the first application in the foreground region.

The control unit 180 controls the activation lifecycle of the first application to be onStart so that the execution region of the first application process can be set as the foreground region so that the first application can be activated. When the first application is activated, an interface corresponding to the first application may be displayed on the display unit 151. [ The control unit 180 may receive the input information from the user input (touch input, sensor input, etc.) for the interface and process the operation of the first application.

Then, the terminal 100 displays the first graphic user interface in the first area (S120).

The control unit 180 may display a first graphic user interface for interacting with the first application on the display unit 151 according to the activation of the first application described above.

Also, the control unit 180 can display the first graphic user interface in the first area set in advance. The first area may be a region other than the NOTIFICATION BAR displayed on the display unit 151, for example. The first area may include operation information of the first application and a first user interface that can be controlled by the user. For example, the first area may display text message information, social network service information, video reproduction information, game information, map information, Internet web page, etc., and the first graphic user interface may be used for controlling the first application Buttons, scroll bars, and the like.

Then, the terminal 100 determines whether the event is received (S130). If the event is received, the terminal 100 determines whether the current state corresponds to the activation condition (S135).

As described above, the control unit 180 can receive the event from the server 200 through the wireless communication unit 110, and can obtain the identification information for the second application from the received event.

When the event is received, the control unit 180 may determine whether the event corresponds to the activation condition based on the current state of the terminal 100 and the event. The activation condition can be preset and can be controlled according to user input. The control unit 180 may provide the user with a separate activation condition setting interface for setting the activation condition.

In addition, in the embodiment of the present invention, the activation condition may indicate whether the controller 180 activates the second application upon receiving an event. Accordingly, when the user sets the activation condition, activation of the second application can be determined according to the activation condition. Such activation conditions may include various conditions.

For example, the activation condition may be determined according to information obtained from the event received from the server 200. [ The user can set the information obtained from the event as the activation condition.

For example, the advertisement reserve amount obtained from the event may be set as an activation condition. In this case, if the amount of the advertisement reserve acquired from the event is less than 100 won according to the user setting, the second application may not be activated.

In addition, the category of the advertisement obtained from the event can be set as the activation condition. In this case, the second application can be activated only when the category of the advertisement obtained from the event is fashion according to the user setting.

On the other hand, the activation condition may be determined according to the first application activated by the current user selection. The user can preset the applications capable of activating the second application as activation conditions or set the applications that do not activate the second application as activation conditions in advance.

For example, in the case of a specific game application, the activation condition may be set such that the second application is not activated. In this case, if the first application selected by the user is a specific game application, the second application may not be activated.

If the event is received and the activation condition is satisfied, the control unit 180 activates the second application identified from the event (S140), and displays the second graphic user interface according to the activation of the second application in the second area S150).

As described above, the control unit 180 can identify the second application from the event and activate the identified second application. The control unit 180 executes all or a part of the second application process in the foreground area of the memory 160 or all or a part of the second application process executed in the background area into the foreground area of the memory 160 Can be switched and activated.

The controller 180 may generate the second graphic user interface and display the second graphic user interface in the second area of the display unit 151 as the second application is activated.

In an embodiment of the present invention, the first region and the second region may overlap and operate independently of each other. Also, the first area and the second area may be displayed at different positions. The control unit 180 may generate the respective windows for displaying the first and second areas, and may control the size and the position of each window. A first graphical user interface may be displayed in the first area, and a second graphical user interface may be displayed in the second area.

The control unit 180 may control the display unit 151 such that the size of the first area is smaller than the size of the second area. Accordingly, the first application selected by the user can be displayed in an area larger than the second area, and the second application operating according to the event can be displayed in a relatively small area. In particular, the second region may have a minimized size that does not affect the operation of the first application by the user. Also, the second area may be scaled up or down according to user input.

Then, the terminal 100 controls at least one of the first graphic user interface or the second graphic user interface according to a user input (S160).

The control unit 180 may control at least one of the first graphic user interface and the second graphic user interface according to a user input inputted through the user input unit 130. [

As described above, the first graphic user interface may include an interface for controlling the first application selected by the user. Accordingly, the control unit 180 can normally control the first application according to the user input to the first graphic user interface regardless of the second application.

The second graphic user interface may include an interface for controlling a second application activated by an event. The second graphic user interface may be popped up in the second area, and the controller 180 may control the second application according to the user input to the second graphic user interface.

For example, the first application may be an Internet application and the second application may be an advertising application. The advertisement content provider may transmit the event to the terminal 100 through the server 200 in order to provide the specific advertisement content through the second application. When the event is received, the control unit 180 identifies a specific advertisement content from the event, generates a second graphic user interface corresponding to the identified advertisement content, and displays the second graphic user interface in the second area through the display unit 151. [

Accordingly, the user can receive advertisement contents displayed in the second area without being affected by the use of the Internet application displayed in the first area. Accordingly, in providing the advertisement content, the problem that the first application is stopped or the background area is changed to cause inconvenience of the user can be solved.

Particularly, in the embodiment of the present invention, since the advertisement content can be displayed in the second area that is independent of the first area in which the first application is displayed and can be overlaid on the first area, It is possible to expand the advertisement contents, move the pages, and terminate the advertisement contents without receiving the advertisement contents.

And, the second graphical user interface can represent the advertisement content in various ways. For example, the second graphical user interface may include text information moving in a certain direction. In addition, the second graphic user interface may include image information reproduced by the received event. The second graphic user interface may include a control mark for extending the second area according to user input. In addition, the second graphic user interface may include a plurality of pages, and movement between the plurality of pages may be performed according to user input.

In addition, the controller 180 may generate the accumulation request information corresponding to the received event according to the user input to the second graphic user interface.

The event received by the terminal 100 may include the reserve information. In addition, the second graphic user interface may include the reserve information corresponding to the event. The controller 180 generates the accumulation request information corresponding to the reserve according to the input of the user, 200). The server 200 receiving the acquisition request information can accumulate and manage rewards corresponding to the acquisition request information in the user account of the terminal 100. [
