Title: SINGLE-HAND INTERACTION FOR PAN AND ZOOM
Abstract:
Systems and methods for presenting a dynamic user-interaction control are presented. The dynamic user-interaction control enables a device user to interact with a touch-sensitive device in a single-handed manner. A triggering event causes the dynamic user-interaction control to be temporarily presented on a display screen. In various embodiments, a dynamic user interaction control is presented at the location corresponding to the triggering event (i.e., the location of the device user's touch). The dynamic user-interaction control remains present on the display screen and the device user can interact with the control until a dismissal event is encountered. A dismissal event occurs under multiple conditions including the device user breaks touch connection with the dynamic user-interaction control for a predetermined amount of time.
