WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. A method comprising: identifying a selected functionality option based on a detected first slider selection event on a touch screen display; and presenting, in response to identifying the selected functionality option, at least one sub- functionality option on the touch screen display based on the selected functionality option, the at least one sub- functionality option being selectable via a second slider selection event, and wherein presenting the at least one sub- functionality option on the touch screen display is performed via a processor.

2. The method of claim 1 further comprising executing a first operation associated with the selected functionality option.

3. The method of claim 2 further comprising: identifying a selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event; and executing a second operation associated with the selected sub- functionality option.

4. The method of claim 1 further comprising: identifying a selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event; and executing an operation associated with the selected functionality option and the selected sub- functionality option.

5. The method of claim 4 wherein identifying the selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event includes detecting the second slider selection event wherein an origin of the second slider selection event is a destination of the first slider selection event.

6. An apparatus comprising a processor, the processor configured to: identify a selected functionality option based on a detected first slider selection event on a touch screen display; and present, in response to identifying the selected functionality option, at least one sub- functionality option on the touch screen display based on the selected functionality option, the at least one sub- functionality option being selectable via a second slider selection event.

7. The apparatus of claim 6, wherein the processor is further configured to execute a first operation associated with the selected functionality option.

8. The apparatus of claim 7, wherein the processor is further configured to: identify a selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event; and execute a second operation associated with the selected sub- functionality option.

9. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein the processor is further configured to: identify a selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event; and execute an operation associated with the selected functionality option and the selected sub- functionality option.

10. The apparatus of claim 9 wherein the processor configured to identify the selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event includes being configured to detect the second slider selection event wherein an origin of the second slider selection event is a destination of the first slider selection event.

11. The apparatus of claim 10, wherein the processor is further configured to: implement a locked mode prior to identifying the selected functionality option; and transition to an unlocked mode in response to the detected first slider selection event.

12. The apparatus of claim 6 further comprising the touch screen display in communication with the processor.

13. An computer program product comprising at least one computer-readable storage medium having executable computer-readable program code instructions stored therein, the computer-readable program code instructions configured to: identify a selected functionality option based on a detected first slider selection event on a touch screen display; and present, in response to identifying the selected functionality option, at least one sub- functionality option on the touch screen display based on the selected functionality option, the at least one sub- functionality option being selectable via a second slider selection event.

14. The computer program product of claim 13, wherein the computer-readable program code instructions are further configured to execute a first operation associated with the selected functionality option.

15. The computer program product of claim 14, wherein the computer-readable program code instructions are further configured to: identify a selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event; and execute a second operation associated with the selected sub- functionality option.

16. The computer program product of claim 13, wherein the computer-readable program code instructions are further configured to: identify a selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event; and execute an operation associated with the selected functionality option and the selected sub- functionality option.

17. The computer program product of claim 16 wherein the computer-readable program code instructions configured to identify the selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event include being configured to detect the second slider selection event wherein an origin of the second slider selection event is a destination of the first slider selection event.

18. The computer program product of claim 13 , wherein the computer-readable program code instructions are further configured to: implement a locked mode prior to identifying the selected functionality option; and transition to an unlocked mode in response to the detected first slider selection event.

19. An apparatus comprising: means for identifying a selected functionality option based on a detected first slider selection event on a touch screen display; and means for presenting, in response to identifying the selected functionality option, at least one sub- functionality option on the touch screen display based on the selected functionality option, the at least one sub- functionality option being selectable via a second slider selection event.

20. The apparatus of claim 19 further comprising: means for identifying a selected sub- functionality option based on a detected second slider selection event; and means for executing an operation associated with the selected functionality option and the selected sub- functionality option.
