20130198615Creating Flexible Structure Descriptions - In one embodiment, the invention provides a method, comprising detecting data fields on a scanned document image; generating a flexible document description based on the detected data fields, including creating a set of search elements for each data field, each search element having associated search criteria; and training or modifying the flexible document description using, for example, a search algorithm to detect the data fields on additional training images based on the set of search elements.08-01-2013
20120072835Microblog Client - Methods, computer readable media, and apparatuses for providing user interfaces, determining screen layouts, and displaying microblog posts are presented. A microblog client may receive a set of microblog posts and provide a user interface for displaying the received microblog posts. The microblog client also may parse the received posts and identify one or more content elements within the posts. The microblog client may then download additional information based on the content elements, and may determine a screen layout for displaying the posts based on the content elements and the additional downloaded information. In certain examples, microblog posts may be parsed and the additional related information may be downloaded prior to the selection of the posts in the user interface. The determination of a screen layout for displaying the microblog posts may also depend on the display characteristics, for example, screen size or orientation of a client device.03-22-2012
20130212470Device, Method, and Graphical User Interface for Sharing a Content Object in a Document - An electronic device with a display: concurrently displays a first electronic document and a second electronic document, the first electronic document including a displayed content object; detects a first user input that starts on the content object; in response to a determination that the first user input corresponds to a first command, creates and displays a copy of the content object in the second electronic document; and, in response to a determination that the first user input corresponds to a second command, distinct from the first command: selects the content object; displays an animation of the content object separating from the first electronic document; and initiates display of a plurality of icons proximate to the separated content object, the plurality of icons including at least one icon to initiate display of a user interface for sending the content object to one or more other users.08-15-2013
