A new customizable user interface for smart devices based on hyperlink associability is presented. Although mobile devices should be easy to use, many current devices have complex and widely varying interfaces. The proposed framework, Hyrax, attempts to improve the menu structure and accessibility of functions while considering user preferences. In Hyrax, the user interface is constructed and customized using hyperlinks, more precisely, the XLink in W3C and External Function Invocation in WAP Forum, for access to application functions. We focus herein on the user interface of a phone and present the customizable menu structure of the phone while the user uses the interface. This is referred to herein as dasiaon-devicepsila customization. We implement the on-device customization capabilities and evaluate the capabilities of the proposed interface.
