Abstract

A method is described to automatically locate a default file to be loaded with a mini-application without requiring user intervention. Phone List is a mini-application that supports two modes of operation: Find and Edit. In the Find mode, the user may look up telephone numbers (provided the list is sorted), and dial them. In the Edit mode, the user may edit, create, save, and sort phone lists. Schedule is a mini-application that supports three modes of operation, Day, Week, and Month. The Day mode allows the user to schedule and review daily appointments, set reminders, and set alarms. The Week mode allows the user to view the appointments or open times for a week, and allows the user to set reminders.
