1. An apparatus comprising:
circuitry configured to
control a display to display information on a plurality of home screens;
detect a drag operation on the display;
determine whether the drag operation is a first type of drag operation or a second type of drag operation different from the first type of drag operation, the first type of drag operation causing a movement amount of a displayed image to be greater than a movement amount of the drag operation and the second type of drag operation causing the movement amount of the displayed image to directly correspond to the movement amount of the drag operation;
if the drag operation is the first type of drag operation, control the movement amount of the displayed image to be greater than the movement amount of the drag operation; and
when the drag operation is between two of the home screens, control the display to display at least a part of each of the two of the home screens simultaneously,
wherein the circuitry is configured to cause the display to display simultaneously, at least while the drag operation is detected as the first type of drag operation, a first graphical representation indicating the plurality of home screens and a second graphical representation on the first graphical indication, the second graphical representation indicating a location of a home screen currently being displayed relative to the plurality of home screens; and
wherein the first graphical representation and the second graphical representation are displayed on the display to he smaller than the home screen currently being displayed on the display.
