Abstract

See full text

An electronic device is disclosed for use with a touch-sensitive display. The electronic device includes a processor that displays indicia on the touch-sensitive display that can be touch selected by a user, and defines a size and location of a plurality of selection zones on the touch-sensitive display that are each associated with different ones of the indicia. The processor identifies a first one of the selection zones that has been selected by the user on the touch-sensitive display, and outputs a first one of the indicia that is associated with the first selection zone. The processor changes the size of a second one of the selection zones in response to it being associated with a second one of the indicia that is more likely to be selected next following selection of the first selection zone associated with the first indicia than at least another one of the selection zones. Related methods of operating an electronic device are disclosed.
