By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computer Weekly News -- According to news reporting originating from Alexandria, Virginia, by VerticalNews journalists, a patent by the inventor Gotoh, Hiroshi (Kanagawa, JP), filed on January 22, 2015, was published online on August 16, 2016.

The assignee for this patent, patent number 9417937, is RICOH COMPANY, LTD. (Tokyo, JP).

Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The present invention relates to a terminal device and a data passing method.

"Conventionally, there is known a data passing method, in which the load of applications can be reduced when passing data between a plurality of applications (see, for example, Patent Document 1).

"Patent Document 1: Japanese Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2001-67236

"For example, there is an operating system (hereinafter, 'OS') for providing a file passing function for passing files between different applications. In order to use a file passing function of a conventional OS, the applications specify the type of processable file (for example, pdf) in the OS.

"When the application of the file passing side performs a process of passing a file, the file passing function of the OS presents, to the user, a list of applications that can process the file that is the target of passing. The user selects, from the list, an application for passing a file, such that the file can be passed.

"However, in a conventional file passing function, when the type of file is a generally well-known file type, the number of applications that can process the file to be passed increases, and therefore the number of applications included in the list increases."

In addition to obtaining background information on this patent, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent: "The present invention provides a terminal device and a data passing method, in which one or more of the above-described disadvantages are eliminated.
