Title
(EN) MAINTANENCE OF TERMINATED APPLICATIONS WITHIN THE BACKSTACK
(FR) ENTRETIEN D'APPLICATIONS FERMÉES DANS LA PILE D'HISTORIQUE
Abstract
(EN) The claimed subject matter provides for systems and/or methods for affecting the maintenance of applications, and re-launching of applications, on a backstack in a computing environment in which the applications have been killed and/or terminated. The backstack comprises a list of application that have been recently used or otherwise invoked by the computing environment or the user via the computing environment. In one embodiment, the computing environment comprises a graphical user interface (GUI) in which the user may engage in deliberate gestures to interact with applications, including the re-launching of killed or otherwise terminated applications. Upon a user command intending such relaunching, the computing environment may present to the user a temporary UI screen associated with the killed application and present a more fully functioning screen upon a commit signal to execute the killed application.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur des systèmes et/ou des procédés pour modifier l'entretien d'applications et le re-lancement de ces applications sur une pile d'historique dans un environnement informatique dans lequel les applications ont été tuées et/ou fermées. La pile d'historique comporte une liste d'applications qui ont été récemment utilisées ou autrement appelées par l'environnement informatique ou par l'utilisateur par l'intermédiaire de l'environnement informatique. Selon un mode de réalisation, l'environnement informatique comprend une interface utilisateur graphique (IUG) dans laquelle l'utilisateur peut effectuer des gestes délibérés afin d'interagir avec des applications, y compris relancer des applications tuées ou autrement fermées. Lors d'une instruction de l'utilisateur signifiant un tel re-lancement, l'environnement informatique peut présenter à l'utilisateur un écran d'interface utilisateur temporaire associé à l'application tuée et présenter un écran fonctionnel plus complet lors d'un signal de validation d'exécution de l'application tuée.
