Abstract

This invention proposes a method and apparatus to have a mobile device automatically download recordings for missed meeting(s) or a meeting where the user had many interruptions to the mobile device ahead of time. The download would occur while the user had access to free WiFi so that the mobile user can leverage some spare time such as in between chores, or driving/sitting in the car and so on to listen to the recording.

Method and apparatus to effectively download mobile contents and correlate interesting contents from mobile device to other devices

With mobile devices being so common, many of the mobile users choose to use smart devices as their mobile phone so that they can do more than just take a phone call from the device. Common known activities on smart mobile phones include watching video recordings, video chatting, using various vendor's application such as Amazon* mobile app, online banking app, etc.

This invention proposes a method and apparatus to have a mobile device automatically download recordings for missed meeting(s) or a meeting where the user had many interruptions to the mobile device ahead of time. The download would occur while the user had access to free WiFi** so that the mobile user can leverage some spare time such as in between chores, or driving/sitting in the car and so on to listen to the recording.

Markers can be inserted automatically for the user when the user opens up the video on the device or other devices, to allow the user to quickly navigate among the interesting markers.

The invention can be extended to also download the most popular recordings for a given community to which the user belongs, or recordings that are marked as most favorite (or high scores) by the user's social network.

Novelty:

Identify user's interest via missed recording, or social community or network group. Automatically download the interesting recordings while on free WiFi
Allow users to easily record interesting markers on a given recording to indicate more information is needed and download the additional information as soon as the device is back on free data network.

Render the interesting markers for the user on the corresponding video recording to allow user to easily navigate and...
