The control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display magazines on the entire screen excluding the indicator area 30 or in the main area 10 when the magazine end event (for example, the tab for the magazine end button 205) Instead of displaying the home screen. Here, when a home screen is displayed in the main area 10, icons of running or favorite applications may be displayed in the sub area 20. The guide 206 is for guiding the user to the total number of magazines and the relative position of the currently displayed magazine 201.

The controller 180 switches the screen from the magazine 201 to the magazine full view screen 208 when it detects a magazine full view event (e.g., a tab for the view button 207). That is, the display unit 130 displays all the magazines in the main area 10 in the form of an icon. At this time, the display unit 130 displays the entire view end button 209 in the sub-area 20. When the user touches and drops the entire view end button 209, the touch screen 110 transmits a touch event related to the touch event to the controller 180, and the controller 180 senses the touch event and ends the entire magazine view . Thus, the display unit 130 displays the magazine 201 in the main area 10 and displays the magazine end button 205, the guide 206, and the full view button 207 in the sub area 20. When the user taps one of the icons, the controller 180 detects the tapped icon and controls the display unit 130 to display the magazine corresponding to the tapped icon in the main area 10. When the user presses one of the icons, the control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display the magazine delete button 210 on all of the icons. When the user taps the magazine delete button 210, the control unit 180 deletes the corresponding icon and the magazine.

On the other hand, the display unit 130 displays the magazine creation button 211 on the main area 10.

On the other hand, when the controller 180 detects a magazine change event, for example, a flick-and-drop operation for the magazine 201, the controller 180 controls the display unit 130 to display another magazine.

The control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display the layout 212 of the magazine 201 on the main area 10 when a magazine editing event such as a press on the magazine 201 is sensed, The display button 207 and the edit completion button 213 are displayed in the sub area 20. The controller 180 switches the screen from the layout 212 to the magazine full view screen 208 when it detects a tab for the entire view button 207. [ The control unit 180 switches the screen from the layout 212 to the magazine 201 when it detects the tab for the edit completion button 213. [ In each section of the layout 212, a Facebook icon 214, a weather icon 215, a clock icon 216, and a calendar icon 217 are placed. An icon delete button 218 is displayed on each of the icons. When the user taps the icon delete button 218, the control unit 180 deletes the corresponding icon and releases the mapping between the corresponding section and the application. A new application may be mapped to the section in which the icon is deleted, which will be described in detail with reference to FIG. 3 and FIG.

3, the controller 180 controls the display unit 130 to display the layout 220 in the main area 10 (see FIG. 2) The layout change button 221, and the generation completion button 222 are displayed in the sub area 20, as shown in FIG. The control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display a mapping button 223 on each section of the layout 220. [ When the controller 180 detects a layout change event, for example, a flick-and-drop with respect to the tab or layout 220 for the layout change button 221, the position of the section is displayed on the display unit 130 ).

4 is a view for explaining a magazine generating process according to an embodiment of the present invention.

4, when the controller 180 detects a mapping event, for example, a tab for the mapping button 225 located in the first section 227, the controller 180 controls the display unit 130 to display the application list 226 . Specifically, the controller 180 selects one or more applications from among the plurality of applications with reference to the size of the first section 227, forms an application list 226 with the selected one or more applications, controls the display unit 130 And displays the application list 226. In other words, the control unit 180 may not include an application whose application execution screen is larger than the size of the first section 227. For example, the internet browser is mapped to the second section 228, but not to the first section 227, which is smaller than the second section 228. Here, the application list 226 may be composed of music, video, calendar, email, RSS (Really Simple Syndication) reader, clock, weather and the like.

The control unit 180 maps the clock to the first section 227 when it detects an application selection event, for example, a tab for the clock in the application list 226. [ The control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display the clock icon 230 and the delete button 229 on the first section 227. Further, the controller 180 controls the display unit 130 to display the function button 231 in the first section 227 when the application selected by the user, that is, the clock function is plural.

The control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display the function list 232 when a mapping event, for example, a tab for the function button 230 is sensed. That is, the function list 232 may include a Seoul time, a New York time, a London time, a Tokyo time and a city search button 233, and the like. The controller 180 maps the Seoul time display function to the first section 227 when a function selection event, for example, a tab for the Seoul time, is detected in the function list 232. [

The controller 180 also generates magazines by mapping the applications to other sections. Thereafter, when the controller 18 detects a tab for the generation completion button 222, the controller 18 stores the generated magazine in the storage unit 140, and controls the display unit 130 to display the generated magazine.

On the other hand, the control unit 180 can change the layout to another layout only for the remaining area except for the area mapped by the application. This will be described in detail with reference to FIG.

5 is a diagram for explaining a layout changing process according to another embodiment of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 5, for example, the control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display a layout composed of a plurality of sections. Then, the control unit 180 maps the clock and weather applications to the first section 241 and the second section 242, respectively, as shown in Fig. 5 (a). 5 (b) and 5 (c), when the control unit 180 detects the flick-and-drop with respect to the tab or the layout 243 of the layout change button 221, Change the remaining area except the section to a different size and number of sections.

 In addition, the control unit 180 allows the user to arbitrarily adjust the size of each section. This will be described in detail with reference to FIGS. 6 and 7. FIG.

6 is a diagram for explaining a layout changing process according to another embodiment of the present invention. As shown in Figure 6A, the control unit 180 controls the section adjustment event, e.g., the first section 244 and the first boundary 247 between the second and third sections 245 and 246, The size of the first section 244 is reduced and the sizes of the remaining sections 245, 246 and 248 are relatively increased as shown in Fig. 6 (b). 6 (c), when the control unit 180 detects the dragging in the left direction with respect to the second boundary line 249 between the second section 245 and the third and fourth sections 246 and 248, As described above, the second section 245 is reduced in size and the remaining sections 246 and 248 are increased in size. At this time, the control section 180 leaves the first section 244 that is not in contact with the second boundary line 249 as it is. Thus, the controller 180 moves the boundary lines and adjusts the sizes of the sections adjacent to the boundary lines. Alternatively, the control unit 180 may adjust the size of only one section, as described later.

7 is a view for explaining a layout changing process according to another embodiment of the present invention. As shown in Fig. 7 (a), when the controller 180 senses the upward movement of the first boundary line 254 between the first section 251 and the second and third sections 252 and 253 , The size of the first section 244 is reduced as shown in Fig. 7 (b). At this time, the sizes of the remaining sections 252, 253, and 255 remain unchanged. In addition, the controller 180 increases the size of the first section 244 again when the user drags the first boundary line 254 downward.

7 (c), when the control unit 180 detects the dragging in the left direction with respect to the second boundary line 256 between the second section 252 and the third and fourth sections 253 and 255, As noted, the second section 252 is reduced in size. Likewise, the remaining sections remain the same size. In addition, when the user drags the second boundary line 256 to the right, the controller 180 increases the size of the second section 252 again.

8 is a flowchart illustrating a screen control method according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 8, in step 301, the controller 180 controls the display unit 130 to display an idle screen, for example, a home screen. In step 302, the controller 180 proceeds to step 303 when a magazine display event is detected. In step 303, the control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display a magazine instead of the home screen. Also, in step 303, when the magazine change event is detected, the control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display another magazine.

Next, during display of the magazine, when the controller 180 detects the magazine editing event in step 304, the flow proceeds to step 306. On the other hand, when displaying the magazine, in step 305, the controller 180 detects the magazine end event and controls the display unit 130 to display the magazine display instead of displaying the magazine.

In step 306, the control unit 180 controls the display unit 130 to display the layout of the magazine being displayed.
