1. A three-dimensional user interface displayed on a display of a computing device, the user interface comprising:

  • a plurality of interactive three-dimensional shapes, each three-dimensional shape comprised of a plurality of faces having respective graphics corresponding to and representing applications on the computing device, wherein each three-dimensional shape is rotatable to alternatively display any of its faces as a current frontward face, wherein the current frontward face of each three-dimensional shape comprises a face to which user input is able to be directed to invoke and display an application represented by the graphic displayed for the current frontward face; and

    receiving user rotation inputs directed to the three-dimensional shapes and in response interactively rotating the three-dimensional shapes according to the user rotation inputs; and

    receiving system events and responding to the system events by automatically rotating faces corresponding to the system events of the three-dimensional shapes to become the current frontward faces of corresponding three-dimensional shapes, wherein the system events do not correspond to user interactions with computing device.
