Abstract

This document describes techniques and apparatuses enabling an application-launching interface for multiple modes. This interface enables a user to quickly and easily select to launch applications associated with different modes. A user may avoid wading through multiple interfaces, making multiple selections, and/or a cognitive load associated with deciding on a mode with which to interact.

Description

    BACKGROUND
  • Many conventional application-launching interfaces permit users to launch applications into a windows-based mode. Most windows-based modes present a launched application with a frame having controls for interacting with the application as well as controls for moving, sizing, or otherwise managing the layout of the window frame. This window frame, however, occupies part of a display that might otherwise be dedicated to the application's content. If a user wishes to launch an application into an immersive or other non-windows-based mode, such as to avoid a window frame, the user typically first selects to launch a secondary launching application from within the conventional interface, waits for the secondary launching application to launch within the windows-based mode, views other applications within the secondary launching application's window frame, selects one of these other applications, and then waits for that other application to be launched within the non-windows-based mode.
  • Some other conventional application-launching interfaces permit users to launch applications directly into an immersive mode. These other conventional application-launching interfaces, however, launch applications only into the immersive mode. Most immersive modes permit a user to view and interact with more of an application's content than that of the windows-based mode, though they lack much of the flexibility permitted by the windows-based mode.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION Overview
  • This document describes techniques and apparatuses enabling an application-launching interface for multiple modes. This interface enables a user to quickly and easily select to launch applications associated with different modes. A user may avoid wading through multiple interfaces, making multiple selections, and/or a cognitive load associated with deciding on a mode with which to interact.
  • Assume, for example, that a user wishes to begin her workday with four applications, two of which are windows-based and two of which are immersive. Conventional techniques may require her to select a windows-based application-launching interface, select to launch the first of the two windows-based applications, wait for it to launch, then return to the interface, select to launch the second of the two windows-based applications, and then wait for the second application to launch. With these two launched, the user then either opens an immersive application-launching interface or launches an application or secondary launching interface through the windows-based application-launching interface. In either case, the user then selects a first of the two immersive applications, waits for it to launch, returns to the immersive application-launching interface (or windows-based application capable of launching into the immersive mode), selects the second application, and then waits for the second application to launch.
  • As is readily apparent, this is time consuming for the user. It also requires the user to know from which of the interfaces or launch-capable applications to launch the four applications. This knowledge is an example of cognitive load, which is often considered a factor contributing to a poor user experience.
  • The techniques, however, permit the user to select to launch all four applications through a single interface, thereby reducing the user's cognitive load and effort. Furthermore, the techniques also permit selection of each application with a single selection or even, in some cases, multiple applications with a single selection, thereby significantly reducing the time and/or cognitive load needed to launch applications.
  • Example System
  • FIG. 1 illustrates an example system 100 in which techniques enabling an application-launching interface for multiple modes can be embodied. System 100 includes a computing device 102, which is illustrated with six examples: a laptop computer 104, a tablet computer 106, a smart phone 108, a set-top box 110, a desktop computer 112, and a gaming device 114, though other computing devices and systems, such as servers and netbooks, may also be used.
  • Computing device 102 includes computer processor(s) 116 and computer-readable storage media 118 (media 118). Media 118 includes an operating system 120, windows-based mode module 122, immersive mode module 124, launcher 126, and applications 128, each of which may provide content 130. Computing device 102 also includes or has access to one or more displays 132, four examples of which are illustrated in FIG. 1.
  • Windows-based mode module 122 presents at least some of applications 128 and accompanying content 130 through windows having frames. These frames may provide controls through which to interact with an application and/or controls enabling a user to move and size the window.
  • Immersive mode module 124 provides a mode by which a user may view and interact with one or more of applications 128 and corresponding content 130. In some embodiments, this mode presents content of, and enables interaction with, applications with little or no window frame and/or without a need for a user to manually size or position content. This mode can be, but is not required to be, hosted and/or surfaced without use of a typical desktop (e.g., windows-based) mode. Thus, in some cases immersive mode module 124 presents an immersive mode that is not a window (even one without a substantial frame) and precludes usage of desktop-like displays (e.g., a taskbar). Further still, in some embodiments this immersive mode is similar to an operating system in that it is not closeable or capable of being un-installed. Examples of immersive modes are provided below as part of describing the techniques, though they are not exhaustive or intended to limit the techniques.
  • Launcher 126 provides an application-launching interface that permits selection to launch applications of different modes, such as windows-based and immersive modes, though other modes are also permitted. In some embodiments, launcher 126 permits selection to present applications that are currently executing. Thus, launcher 126 can enable a user to select applications of different modes to launch into a respective mode or to be presented in a respective mode, based on whether the applications is not or is currently executing, respectively. Note that a user may or may not be aware of which applications are currently executing and may not notice a difference between selecting an application that is or is not executing, as in both cases the application is shown in its respective mode responsive to being selected.
  • Operating system 120, mode modules 122 and 124, and launcher 126 can be separate from each other or combined or integrated in some form. Thus, in some cases operating system 120 includes mode modules 122 and 124 and launcher 126.
  • Example Methods
  • FIG. 2 depicts a method 200 for an application-launching interface for multiple modes. This method is shown as a set of blocks that specify operations performed but is not necessarily limited to the order shown for performing the operations by the respective blocks. In portions of the following discussion reference may be made to system 100 of FIG. 1, reference to which is made for example only.
  • Block 202 presents, in a single user interface and/or at one time, labels associated with applications of two different modes. These different modes may include windows-based and immersive modes, though other modes are also permitted by the techniques. Each label is associated with an application and indicates this association, such as with a graphic or textual descriptor. Applications are selectable, in some cases, through these labels, such as through a mouse click or gesture (e.g., through a touch-screen implementation of display 130). In some cases, however, the applications are selectable as a group and/or through a hot key or other selection manner other than directly through a label.
  • Consider example application-launching interface 300 of FIG. 3, which illustrates selectable labels for various application of different modes. Here launcher 126 of FIG. 1 provides interface 300 having 15 selectable labels associated with applications of two modes—a windows-based mode and an immersive mode.
  • Note that applications of these different modes are intermixed within interface 300, namely immersive-mode applications having labels 302, 304, and 306 and windows-based-mode applications have labels 308, 310, and 312. Further, consider in greater detail label 308, which illustrates optional windows indicator 314 and immersive indicator 316. Optional indicators 314 and 316 are completely optional. These indicators do not need to be presented within interface 300.
  • While not shown in interface 300 (except in label 308), any of the labels of interface 300 may include an indicator showing which mode into which they will be launched on selection. This is of interest to some users but not others. Further still, applications that are currently executing and not currently executing may also be intermixed and optionally include an indicator showing whether they are executing. As noted above, launcher 126 enables selection of executing and non-executing application through a same interface, either differently or with a same type of selection.
  • In some example cases, an application may be launched into multiple modes. A mode for launch may be selected by launcher 126 by default, though it may also enable a user to select which mode, here by selecting one of indicators 314 or 316. This is but one example of ways in which a single selection may launch an application differently based on that selection.
  • Block 204 receives a selection. As noted, selection of one or more applications can be made in various manners, including a single selection to launch one application or even a single selection to launch multiple applications. Continuing the ongoing example, consider selection of the immersive-mode application associated with label 304 of FIG. 3. Selection here is received through a gesture 402 shown in FIG. 4. Note that this single selection made through gesture 402 selects the content that is to be displayed when the application is launched. This is another example of reducing a user's effort and cognitive load, in this case by launching directly to desired content.
  • Block 206, responsive to selection, causes the selected application(s) to launch within respective mode(s). Before proceeding to cover launching multiple applications with a single selection, consider the ongoing embodiment in which a user selected, through gesture 402 of selectable label 304 associated with the application, to launch this “News” application. As noted, this application is associated with an immersive mode. Thus, in response to receiving the gesture, launcher 126 causes the News application to launch. Here launcher 126 does so by passing this selection on to immersive mode module 124. Immersive mode module 124 launches the News application. FIG. 5 illustrates an example of this launch on display 500 into immersive mode 502 with content 504 of the News application. The News application is one example of applications 128, display 500 of display 132, and content 504 of content 130, all of FIGS. 1 and 5.
  • By way of another example, consider a second selection through interface 300, this selection through the same gesture as illustrated in FIG. 4 but selecting instead a word-processing application associated with a windows-based mode and selected through windows-based label 310 of FIG. 3 (selection not shown). Responsive to receiving this selection, launcher 126 launches the word-processing application into a windows-based mode by passing this selection to windows-based mode module 122 of FIG. 1. Note that applications of different modes are selectable through the same type of selection, though this is not required. Doing so permits a user to avoid the cognitive load of having to know two different selection manners for these two different modes. The windows-based mode is not illustrated for this example but is illustrated later below in the context of launching multiple applications with a single selection.
  • Launcher 126 may also or instead present labels in groups and/or enable selection of multiple applications. Note that these groups and selection of multiple applications through a single selection is completely optional. Consider application-launching interface 600 of FIG. 6. In this case, launcher 126 (performing block 202 of FIG. 2), presents interface 600 having two selectable groups of applications, a “Work” group shown at 602 and a “Play” group shown at 604. The applications associated with each of these groups may be determined based on a user's selection or history, to name a few. A user's history can include how often, when, and how applications are used, for example. In this illustration, the applications are grouped based on a user's explicit selection to create these groups, which may be enabled by launcher 126 through a graphical selection of labels to create a group.
  • Group 602 includes four selectable labels 606, 608, 610, and 612 associated with four applications, two of which are windows-based and two of which are immersive. Group 604 includes seven selectable labels 614, 616, 618, 620, 622, and 624 associated with seven applications, one of which is windows based and six of which are immersive. Thus, each of these groups 602, 604 includes at least one application associated with each of both different modes and presents them intermixed, in a same interface, and at a same time.
  • Continuing this example, launcher 126 receives a gesture selection 626 to the Work group 602 made to a non-label area 628. At block 206, launcher 126 causes all of the applications in the group to be launched with this single selection. Here launcher 126 causes these launches with a command to launch each application made to each application's respective mode module (windows-based mode module 122 or immersive mode module 124 of FIG. 1). These multiple application launches into multiple modes are illustrated in FIG. 7, which provides example display 700 split into two portions, one for the immersive applications at 702 and the other for the windows-based applications at 704. Note that in this example the two windows-based applications are launched, though one is launched with content and the other is launched but awaits selection to present content. Similarly, both immersive applications are launched with one presenting content and the other awaiting further selection.
  • Other manners of presenting applications responsive to selection through the interface are also possible, such as presenting one mode but launching applications of two modes, launching applications of one mode and presenting just that mode and, responsive to a selection to switch to the other mode, automatically launching the other applications and presenting the other mode. In some cases a group permits still other functions, such as selection by a user to automatically launch applications of a group without further user selection but responsive to some change.
  • Thus, launcher 126 may automatically launch applications (e.g., those of work group 602 or play group 604) responsive to numerous conditions, such as a user logging into computing device 102 on a weekday or on a weekend. Other conditions include, by way of example and not limitation, resuming computing device 102 from a low-power mode (e.g., sleep or hibernation), movement of computing device 102 (e.g., to a docking station at work or within range of a wireless network at home), a user-configured trigger (e.g., an event capable of being tracked or received by computing device 102), and a pre-set time (e.g., 9 am).
  • By way of still another example, consider a different type of selection of a group, this time through application-launching interface 800 of FIG. 8. In this example, interface 800 presents labels 802 and 804 for selecting groups, here label 802 for Work group 602 and label 804 for Play group 604 of FIG. 6. As noted above, launcher 126 may launch all of the applications of Work group 602 with a single selection. Here launcher 126 may do so without explicitly showing labels associated with all of those applications. Thus, selection of label 802 may cause all applications of the Work group 602 to launch. Alternatively, selection of a group label may instead present all of the labels of the applications. In this alternate embodiment, launcher 126 presents selectable labels associated with applications of Work group 602 at 806 responsive to selection 808 shown in FIG. 8. With these presented, selection of one, multiple, or all of the applications may be made as noted above.
  • The preceding discussion describes methods in which the techniques may operate to enable an application-launching interface for multiple modes. Aspects of these methods may be implemented in hardware (e.g., fixed logic circuitry), firmware, software, manual processing, or any combination thereof A software implementation represents program code that performs specified tasks when executed by a computer processor.
