Contact Suggestions: It will suggest contacts based on call frequency, location and your call habits. So, if you always call someone at a certain time, Proactive will place the contact’s icon in the Search screen when it thinks you may want to make a call. Moreover, if an unknown call comes in, and the number that is contained within an email you have received, Proactive will let you know who might be calling.

News Suggestions: It will offer you the trending news stories in your area based on your current location. You can swipe to the Search menu, and scroll down to read the news.

App Suggestions: Proactive also suggests apps for you. There are basically two ways for suggesting apps. In the Search menu, it will show you a list of suggested apps that you frequently use. The second way is that Proactive can automatically launch an app based on your past habits, say, if you always playing music in your wake-up time, it will automatically start playing songs at the same time in the morning. How intelligent it is!
