Functions for communication with the navigator.

This file contains function definitions for receiving and sending messages to the navigator. The navigator controls how applications appear on the device. For example, application windows can occupy the full screen, be reduced to a thumbnail image while a user scrolls through active applications, or be invisible to the user. All of these states are reported by the navigator service. The navigator also responds to events (such as swipe events), and the navigator service allows your application to respond to these events.

You can also use the navigator service to open files that are located locally on the device, as well as open URIs that you specify (including URIs that correspond to applications on the device), by calling the navigator_invoke() function. For example, you can use the navigator service to launch applications such as the browser, camera, calendar, and so on.
