    Fan­tas­tic app, great update, thank you! I am won­der­ing how to delete a recur­ring sin­gle fin­ished task with­out delet­ing all instances. When I tap the option to delete cur­rent, not the delete all instances, it deletes all instances any­way. I have tried it sev­eral times and it deletes all instances every time.
    Also, is there a way to add another cal­en­dar in the left hand col­umn? I would like to be able to eas­ily switch back and forth between my cal­en­dar and my son’s cal­en­dar with­out hav­ing to flip the screen and check and uncheck boxes. Thank you for con­tin­u­ing to lis­ten to us and pro­vide ongo­ing updates, too many apps start out great and then fiz­zle out, so glad you haven’t done that!

    I’ve got to say bravo on the update. This is the best time man­age­ment app that I’ve used and I’ve used sev­eral. The abil­ity to cre­ate tasks from email is great. A home­run. I know this may be too much to ask but I’m going to swing for the fences. The note­books app I have can extract tasks by line from notes. Also by para­graph. It would lit­er­ally make me jump out of my seat for that to be a part of what is already a great app. The use­ful­ness of this already out­weighs that fea­ture so much that I use this one instead. But that is one thing I miss that would give me the best of all worlds. Just ask­ing. Great job guys.

      Jim,

      Thank you so much! You made our day!

      We do plan to sup­port the abil­ity to con­vert notes (as well as indi­vid­ual text blocks in notes) into other items, such as tasks, appoint­ments, projects, etc. As you are aware, we already allow you (from our Pro Inbox in app pur­chase fea­ture) the abil­ity to con­vert emails, tweets, Face­book posts, web con­tent etc. into items such as notes, projects, trips, tasks, appoint­ments, etc. We will uti­lize that same tech­nol­ogy to allow for con­ver­sions within our own items, like the exam­ple above.

      Thank you again!

    Hi,
    Finally the 8. 0 is here and it was worth the wait
    I just love the new look and col­ors,
    Talk­ing of col­ors, a reas?lise that my entire day page is orange, as i have mostly appoin­ments, and it looks very dull. I think it would be great if we could change those col­ors manualy.

    The doto list by pri­or­ity is great. But i wish we couls see all in one block instead of hav­ing to click on each one seper­atly, becomes very hard to have a global view

    For the reminders, appoint­ments etc , i wish we could set the when to remind man­u­ally
    Some­times i want to be reminded 1 hr before and some­times 2 days before, it would be great to be able to set them man­u­ally, and be able to add mul­ti­ple reminders for the same event.

    Thumbs up for the great effort of the team
    Warm regards

    Pradip

      Pradip,

      Thank you for your kind words and for the excel­lent feed­back. Many of the fea­tures were inspired by user requests and our vision, and the quest for a con­sis­tent look and behavior.

      1. We will con­tinue to improve the color sup­port. Con­text tags can now have dif­fer­ent col­ors and they can be used to help dis­tin­guish between var­i­ous items of the same type.

      2. We are not sure if we under­stand you com­pletely. Can you please elab­o­rate? All the check­lists can be viewed from the Notes + Files –> Check­lists view. We do not have the sort­ing abil­ity across check­lists. How­ever, the check­list detail view pro­vides the abil­ity to reorder, copy and move check­list items.

      3. Yes, it is pos­si­ble to add mul­ti­ple local noti­fi­ca­tions (and spec­ify the date/time man­u­ally) for Reminders and Appoint­ments. In the Appointment/Reminder detail view, tap on the “iOS Cal­en­dar” tile. And, then choose “Show iOS Noti­fi­ca­tions” to nav­i­gate to the iOS noti­fi­ca­tions view where you can add your own noti­fi­ca­tions using the + at the top right.
      We are cur­rently con­sid­er­ing sup­port­ing tem­plates of reminder sets (lunch reminders, doc­tor office visit reminders, etc.) that can be added to items in one action.

    Was want­ing to set up food menus and add recipes. Don’t know where to start. Want them to con­nect with shop­ping list.


    • LightArrow
      Feb 28, 2014

      Hi Con­nie,

      We sug­gest you add them as Notes (give them a cat­e­gory of Recipes). Notes can have book­marks, check­lists (for ingre­di­ents, prep steps, for exam­ple), pho­tos, etc in addi­tion to text blocks.
      Cur­rently there is not a way to asso­ciate a shop­ping list with a note. If you cre­ate each recipe as a Project, you can add shop­ping items to it in addi­tion to every­thing a note has.
      In the future, we plan to sup­port the abil­ity to con­nect recipes and their cor­re­spond­ing shop­ping lists. You might be bet­ter off going the Note route (instead of project) as int he future we’ll give the abil­ity to con­vert a check­lists into a shop­ping list.

    I have had your app for a year or two now. It is spec­tac­u­lar. I would only ask for two things, nei­ther are prob­lems, just upgrades.
    1. More cus­tomiza­tion abil­ity, espe­cially on the “home/ login/ main page. I would like to open the app and be able to quick glance what’s rel­e­vant to me. I would like to put the voice recorder there for one but­ton quick voice notes when I’m dri­ving, etc.
    2. Bet­ter over­all visual appear­ance. More col­ors, themes, etc.
    Now, as I said at the start this is by far the best app out there. These sug­ges­tions are things I am sure you are work­ing on. I have also assumed that you have cho­sen put most of your time into the qual­ity, fea­tures and reli­a­bil­ity of the app. And it shows!!!!

      Our next major update (8.0) which is in final test­ing and wrap up mode right now, improves sev­eral aspects of the app. We are tak­ing our time to make it awe­some, and will take these sug­ges­tions into account as well.

    Hi,
    I bought My.Agenda and added the full set of in-app pur­chases so believed it would work with the desk­top client, but it doesn’t appear to con­nect. Both on same wi-fi net­work, secu­rity pro­to­cols set to allow for incom­ing con­nec­tion from the app, set­ting enabled in the app — what else do I need to do to make this work?

      Hi Alex,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us.

      We will work with you to resolve this issue.

      A com­mon mis­take is to slide the enable AirAc­cess con­trol to the “ON” posi­tion in “My Set­tings” and then tap the back but­ton and for­get to tap the “Save” but­ton. Would you mind ver­i­fy­ing that the set­ting in “My Set­tings” for “Enable AirAc­cess” is set to “ON”?

      There may also be net­work issues. We will send you an email with infor­ma­tion on this.

    I pur­chased the shop­ping app think­ing it would sim­plify mak­ing a gro­cery list how­ever, it is so lack­ing Why are there no cat­e­gories nor sub cat ago­nies? A gro­cery shop­ping list has to be man­u­ally typed in, I find this pro­gram a waste of money, it falls way behind other prod­ucts on the mar­ket! Are there plans to make the shop­ping more user friendly?


    • Team LightArrow
      Nov 12, 2013

      Hi Vaneta,

      Thank you for tak­ing the time to reach out to us.

      We con­tin­u­ously strive to improve the usabil­ity of our apps with the great feed­back we get from our engaged users such as your­self. So we gladly wel­come any feed­back and sug­ges­tions you may have to help us improve the product.

      If you wish to seper­ately man­age your prod­ucts and sell­ers to be used later in shop­ping items you can do so by tap­ping on the “Con­fig­ure Prod­ucts” or “Con­fig­ure Sell­ers” tiles in the shop­ping view. You can assign a cat­e­gory to each product/seller from here. From the shop­ping list detail you can group the shop­ping items by these categories.

      When view­ing a shop­ping item’s detail you can also set the product’s cat­e­gory by tap­ping on the “Prod­uct” field and then set­ting its category.

      You can also man­age cat­e­gories for prod­ucts by going to “Set­tings” –> “Man­age Cat­e­gories” –> “Products”.

      You only have to type in the name of a shop­ping item if the shop­ping item does not already exist. If the item exist you can pick it from the list of exist­ing items.

    Hello.

    I have recently installed Life Topix.
    It was work­ing fine but has now started mal­func­tion­ing on my ipad.
    When­ever I try and change a task sta­tus to com­pleted it throws me out of the app.
    It is func­tion­ing per­fectly well on my iPhone but the app. Is not sync­ing between the two — despite icloud backup being enabled.

    Can you help?

    Why is the response so slow? Between fin­ish­ing one thing like a dele­tion, and wait­ing for it to hap­pen, there is so much time that I think I did not tap it in just the right place. There­fore I try again and make some­thing unex­pected hap­pen, inad­ver­tently.
    Also, it is not quite clear to me what the dif­fer­ence is between ser­vice, ser­vice provider, per­son, or any cat­e­gory for them. The intended rela­tion­ship between those items is what I am look­ing for because I may not see it the same way as you. What com­pli­cates the issue even more is that there is no coor­di­na­tion between dif­fer­ent parts of the pro­gram like the back but­ton either does not work (may be I don’t wait long enough?) or it brings me back all the way vs. only to the pre­vi­ous screen.

      Hi Nor­bert,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us.

      We are cur­rently work­ing to improve the per­for­mance of sev­eral views in Life­Topix. Which areas are you see­ing the most lag in?

      A ser­vice can be some­thing like gar­den­ing, plumb­ing or auto repair. A ser­vice provider can be some­thing like “XYZ Land­scap­ing Com­pany”, “Joe the plumber”, or “Jack’s Auto Repair”. A ser­vice provider has infor­ma­tion such as a ref­er­ence field, rat­ings field and online infor­ma­tion field. A per­son is sim­ply a con­tact and can be made an owner of a task, a com­pan­ion on a trip, an invi­tee to an event, etc. Cat­e­gories are used to group like items based on some com­mon fea­ture or qual­ity. For exam­ple you can have a cat­e­gory called “Plumbers” and give all your ser­vice providers who do plumb­ing this cat­e­gory. Now when you need a plumber you can eas­ily search your ser­vice providers by look­ing in the “Plumbers” category.

      The back but­ton should not take you all the way back to the home screen unless the view (you tapped the back but­ton on) was directly launched from the home view. Would you mind telling us where you are expe­ri­enc­ing this behav­ior and pro­vid­ing a few steps?

    When I add a new “task” that I want a “con­text tag” added to, if I add the “con­text tag” while cre­at­ing the “task” two entries are being made with the same descrip­tion from the task. I end up hav­ing to first cre­ate the task and save it, reopen the task and add the “con­text tag” to pre­vent dupli­cate entries. Please advise.

      Hi Ric,

      Thank you for your kind words and for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      The pur­pose of des­ig­nat­ing one of your devices as pri­mary is only impor­tant when ini­tially set­ting up cloud sync.  This is because when set­ting up cloud sync the device you choose as the pri­mary device will be the device whose data will be used to ini­tially pop­u­late the cloud, and other devices get that same data to start with.  After the ini­tial setup of cloud sync has com­pleted every device becomes equal par­tic­i­pants in the sync process.  So you could sim­ply setup cloud sync on your new iPad. Make sure to have the new iPad point to the same Online Folder (the par­ent folder which con­tains the sub­folder Life­Topix­Sync) as the other devices. Please do NOT do a Cloud Reset on any of the devices, as that’ll delete all the sync data from the cloud. Sim­ply set the online folder and enable sync on the new iPad.

      Also, as a pre­cau­tion, please do an Email Backup from your iPhone (assum­ing it has the lat­est data).
      Please let us know if you need any assistance.

      Hi Pam,
      If you have enabled the Google Cal­en­dar on your device Cal­en­dar app, you can select it to be included in Life­Topix (Home view, My Cal­en­dar view, Events topic view) by open­ing the fil­ter on the top right of My Cal­en­dar, and then mak­ing sure the Google Cal­en­dar is selected, and tap Done. All its items will show in the views men­tioned mixed in with your other date rel­e­vant items.
      In Life­Topix Set­tings, you can choose the GOogle Cal­en­dar to be the default cal­en­dar that Life­Topix writes things into (instead of into the default device cal­en­dar).
      We hope this helps.

      Hi,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      Life­Topix sup­ports shar­ing of infor­ma­tion in a cou­ple of ways.

      If the three of you share the same iCloud account then you can sim­ply turn on iCloud sync­ing on LIfe­Topix (on all three devices) and let iCloud auto­mat­i­cally sync the infor­ma­tion between all the iOS devices.

      If you all do not share the same iCloud account then you can share infor­ma­tion in Life­Topix by tak­ing advan­tage of the fact that infor­ma­tion such as tasks, shop­ping lists and other items can be shared via email. When the recip­i­ent opens their email with the Life­Topix infor­ma­tion they can tap and hold on the attach­ment and select to open in Life­Topix. Life­Topix will then be launched and the item imported.

    I love what the iPhone app does. I love that the devel­oper enhanced it and it really seems to inte­grate with iOS data. But when I try using AirAc­cess on my Mac­Book Pro…it con­nects and the data doesn’t sync. And quite frankly, I’m just sim­ply con­fused as to what AirAc­cess is sup­posed to do. In my opin­ion, it should sim­ply mir­ror what is already in the device and changes to the data can and should be made on either device.

    I also wish the User Inter­face (UI) were a lit­tle more min­i­mal­is­tic for ease of use. For exam­ple, I love the “Home” screen on the iOS ver­sion. I have a lot of con­fi­dence in this developer’s abil­ity to lis­ten to user’s feed­back and make pos­i­tive and swift changes. I took a chance by buy­ing the app. And I real­ize the app wasn’t too much. But I will stay loyal and con­tin­u­ally pro­vide feed­back if I know the devel­oper is lis­ten­ing and improve­ments are going to be made.

      Hi Jacob,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your comments.

      You are cor­rect in your under­stand­ing of what AirAc­cess is intended to be. AirAc­cess pro­vides a sim­ple light­weight inter­face to access and update Life­Topix data run­ning on an iOS device from your Mac. The data that is vis­i­ble through AirAc­cess actu­ally resides on the iOS device that AirAc­cess is con­nected to and there­fore no sync­ing is required.

      We are work­ing hard to improve and sim­plify the user expe­ri­ence in Life­Topix and wel­come cus­tomer feed­back as we have ben­e­fited so much from hav­ing an enthu­si­as­tic and engaged cus­tomer base.

      Hi War­ren,
      This hap­pens in two ways.
      1. A local device local noti­fi­ca­tion is reg­is­tered for the start time (Life­Topix appoint­ment, project, trip, event) or due time (Life­Topix task, bill) when an item is saved in Life­Topix. This is the built-in iOS noti­fi­ca­tion that pops up for most apps, as well as can be scrolled down from the top of the screen by swip­ing.
      2. In Life­Topix Set­tings (gear icon acces­si­ble from quick menu at bot­tom left), under My Set­tings, you can also choose to cre­ate an entry on the device Cal­en­dar app, and addi­tion­ally choose a reminder (same day, 1 day before, etc.), so the device Cal­en­dar also reminds you.
      Both of these make a sound.

      Thanks for reach­ing out. We apol­o­gize for that defect. If you go to Notes + Files, All Fold­ers, and tap on your backup folder under All Online Fold­ers, it’ll ask you for authentication/authorization, and once you do that, you should not get the autho­riza­tion prompt any­more while doing back­ups.

    Hi there,
    Am new to Life­Topix, but so far like what I see. I don’t know if I have a set­ting wrong or some­thing on com­pleted tasks. When I mark them com­plete, they show ‘crossed out’ on the home screen but then not on the cal­en­dar view. I like to live in cal­en­dar view so I can see my day in terms of calls, appoint­ments, tasks, etc. So would like to get that pos­i­tive rein­force­ment of mar­ket off tasks on the cal­en­dar view. Thanks and keep up the good work. Roert

        Hi there! Well that was fast! you guys are impres­sive. So I don’t think I com­mu­ni­cated very well on my part. I do have the inac­tive items included, sorry. But the com­pleted tasks are shown ‘cross out’ on the home view but not crossed out on the cal­en­dar view. So it is easy to see what I have left to do on the Home view, but not so easy on the cal­en­dar view. Don’t work too hard on this one. would like to see them crossed out on the cal­en­dar view, but if it isn’t avail­able, maybe some­thing to con­sider for the future. Best, Robert

      There’s lot of flex­i­bil­ity in set­ting up repeat sched­ules for tasks and appoint­ments: here’s a video that explains this fea­ture: http://lightarrow.com/lifetopix/tips-and-tricks/easily-utilize-the-repeat-schedule-functionality-in-lifetopix

        Oct 30, 2012

        This did not help. I had already watched that video. Even to repeat a sim­ple monthly appoint­ment does not work because the choice of day becomes unavail­able, i.e. the first Thurs­day of the month. One can’t set it for 4 weeks because on the month a day occurs 5 times it then throws the sched­ul­ing off. There is no work around that I can see unless you would make the day option avail­able when the month option is cho­sen. If this was avail­able it would be an answer to the first ques­tion I asked.

    I love, love, love the app, but have encoun­tered a few “glitches.”

    1)) I will, occa­sion­ally, have the app open with other apps. Some­times, I get a mes­sage that too many resources are run­ning. When I close Life­Topix, this prob­lem disappears.

    2)) While try­ing to update the sta­tus of tasks in my task list, the app crashes and closes. This occurs imme­di­ately after select­ing a task, then select­ing to update the sta­tus. Once I choose “can­celled” the app crashes.

    I’m still learn­ing all the fea­tures, but I’d like to tie dif­fer­ent things to a con­tact so I can retrieve his­tory, etc. For instance, I have a jour­nal app that allows me to see all inter­ac­tions with a con­tact in chrono order. It also auto­mat­i­cally logs emails, texts and phone calls to the con­tact with date and time. While the con­tent of texts and phone calls has to be man­u­ally entered, the date/time “stamp” is really awe­some and helps me recall the need to log something.

      1. We are improv­ing resource con­sump­tion in our 5.1 update due out in a cou­ple of weeks.
      2. We have fixed the issue of sta­tus set­ting for tasks by touch and hold. If you just tap on the task icon to set the sta­tus, or do it via the detail view, it works fine. Please let us know if that is not true in your case.
      We are improv­ing the peo­ple por­tion of Peo­ple + Ser­vices in order to do log­ging and asso­ci­at­ing infor­ma­tion around a per­son. We plan to do that in the 5.2 update expected before the end of the year.

    Hello. My hus­band and I have been search­ing for a new tasks app, and are specif­i­cally need­ing some­thing that allows recur­ring tasks with­out requir­ing us to set a reminder alarm. I came across your app and it looks amazing–if it is as won­der­ful as every­one is say­ing it is, it is going to save me a lot of search time for other apps!

    Here is one thing I need to do and used to do on another app that seemed to stop work­ing when we got our iPhone 5’s: I like to make recur­ring daily task lists. I have a spe­cific set of tasks I accom­plish each morning–a “Morn­ing Rou­tine,” and then an after­noon rou­tine as well as a before-bedtime rou­tine. (Yes, I have small chil­dren.) On my pre­vi­ous app, I had each of these as a sep­a­rate task list and would check each item off as I com­pleted it. At the end of the day, I could click “uncheck all.” All tasks would be retained and I could then begin again the next day. Will I be able to do this (or some­thing com­pa­ra­ble) with LifeTopix?


    • LightArrow
      Oct 05, 2012

      Hi Kristi,
      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your ques­tion. We too think we are the app you’ve been search­ing for! We do sup­port recur­ring tasks (daily/weekly/monthly/yearly, spe­cific days of week, etc.), but what you are ask­ing for is bet­ter accom­plished with our Check­lists fea­ture (cre­ate a check­list, give it a title of Morn­ing Rou­tine, another one called After­noon Rou­tine, etc., add the spe­cific items to them) in the Notes + Files > All Check­lists view. You can add these two check­lists to the Hot List view by tap­ping and hold­ing on them in the All Check­lists view, so that they are eas­ily acces­si­ble to you. You can check things off, reorder them, etc. You can uncheck all the next day and start again. It gets bet­ter in our 5.1 release (tar­geted for later this month as a free update to exist­ing users). Specif­i­cally, we are adding two fea­tures in 5.1 that we think are very rel­e­vant to your need. 1. A “daily check­list” type “Daily To Do List” that is alway vis­i­ble in your Home: What’s Next view. You can check things, and the next day, they all get unchecked auto­mat­i­cally, ready for the day. 2. We are inte­grat­ing with the device’s Reminders app for those users that cre­ate sim­ple reminders in that app, mak­ing those items avail­able in our Home > What’s Next view, as well as our super pow­er­ful, uni­fied My Cal­en­dar view.
      We hope this helps. We have just begun, this app is going to be AMAZING with each update with user feed­back.

          Hi Kristi,
          You can share shop­ping lists by email — you can email. When you make a list and email it to him, from his email, he can bring that list into Life­Topix. Onc ehe makes changes and emails to you, you can do the same and get his changes to the list (things he checked off, or things he added to the list). You can do it back and forth via email like that. You can also SMS him the shop­ping list. You can do the same with projects, trips, events, notes. We have not yet added this fea­ture to Assets, Finances etc. More info at: http://lightarrow.com/lifetopix/lifetopix-5–0-help/common-features under Shar­ing with Oth­ers via Email.

      Hi Lee,

      iOS and your device sup­port mul­ti­ple Cal­en­dars. Do you have mul­ti­ple Cal­en­dars con­fig­ured on your device, such as one for home and one (tied to your Out­look) for work? If so, then Life­Topix sup­ports this. If you go to Life­Topix Set­tings > My Set­tings, you will see a field for Default Device Cal­en­dar. By set­ting this to your per­sonal device Cal­en­dar as opposed to your work Out­look Cal­en­dar, Life­Topix will place items in your per­sonal Calendar.

      Cur­rently, our tasks can be grouped into projects (and other things like trips, events, etc.). Tasks can also have cat­e­gories and con­texts, justs like projects.
      We do plan to sup­port child tasks and par­ent tasks in the near future. Our next update com­ing later this month is 5.0. We’ll most likely sup­port some level of task hier­ar­chy in either the 5.1 or 5.2 update. All updates are free to exist­ing users.

    Dear Sirs,

    I have bought and suc­cess installed your Life Topix app from iTunes App Store.

    Com­pli­ment with your Life Topix App.

    I would like to be using it more often. Since I am a newbie -

    I would like to ask you is there a way to make in my Project — with one of my Task with Sub-tasks.
    In other words in my Project there are many dif­fer­ent main Tasks and on some of these main Tasks (Top level) I would like to have other con­nec­tion Tasks which are under­neath (Sub level).

    If this app does not have this fea­ture — please explain how can use the app regard­ing these.

    Fur­ther to see my Errands loca­tions in the Map view — do I always have to be con­nected with a Wi-Fi or a Net­work or it is also works in Off-line mode too?

    If these fea­tures that I have men­tioned above are not in the Life Topix can you please put into con­sid­er­a­tion in adding them in your near future Updates.
    – Task with Sub-Tasks (Expand­able or Col­lapsi­ble).
    – View­ing Errands Off-line.

    Hope to hear your feed back and start using your app accordingly.

    Thank you for your attention.

      Hi Mann,

      We do plan to sup­port task clus­ters or sub­tasks — how­ever, we don’t have a con­crete time­frame for it yet. We’ll update our roadmap page once we fin­ish our tech­ni­cal plan­ning and analy­sis and have a time­frame. Hav­ing sub­tasks is very impor­tant to our app.
      In order for tasks to show up in Near Me, we do require that loca­tion ser­vice must be enabled and active (it works both in WiFi as well as cel­lu­lar). We will not be able to pro­vide the cur­rent loca­tion and the map oth­er­wise, since we rely on the device for that.

        Dear Sirs,

        Thank you with your prompt reply.

        Noted about your plan on sup­port task clus­ters. Hope it won’t be long soon.

        Yes I do know this app needs my loca­tion ser­vice enable and active but it only works with Wi-Fi or Cel­lu­lar net­work active.
        What I meant was to use this fea­ture Offline with­out hav­ing Wi-Fi spots or Cel­lu­lar net­work avail­able (which is also very costly).
        It would also be great not to depend on Google maps etc.

        I am sure you do know Omni­Fo­cus app where one does not need to be online to see their tasks to show up in Near Me. It is more effi­cient.
        Hope you can also imple­ment this too.

        Thank you again for your kind attention.

      Hi Life­topix: Add my voice to those who see amaz­ing poten­tial in Life­Topix as a work/life orga­niz­ing tool — but need a 1) real built-for-Mac desk­top app (Air Access is bet­ter than noth­ing but not much, with all respect!) and 2) seam­less iCloud sync. Then you’d give Omni­fo­cus and Things a seri­ous run for their money. Best wishes.

        Hi Ann,
        We really appre­ci­ate your wishes and kind words! Yes, we are work­ing on a full Mac app (as well as Win­dows and Android). We expect the Mac app and the Win­dows app to be avail­able before Android. Also, in our ver­sion 6.0 (tar­geted for avail­abil­ity in 2 weeks), we have redone iCloud Sync to be more reli­able, and have added sup­port for seam­less auto­matic sync with Drop­box as well.
        Best regards,
        Team LightArrow

    Hello– I have the life­topix app on my Iphone 4, and when I try to email the cal­en­dar and tasks to my home email (I have a mac) it opens all in sym­bols. Do I need to change the for­mat in order to back up the info on my email?
    Thanks-Amie

      Are you talk­ing about the shar­ing by email fea­ture? That is meant to be con­sumed by Life­Topix on another device, and the attach­ment in the email is an XML file for that pur­pose (not meant for human read­abil­ity). The body of the email includes a human read­able sum­mary of what is shared via email.
      Also, the email backup fea­ture (acces­si­ble from the Set­tings view) also back­ups the the data­base in an XML for­mat (not meant for human read­abil­ity), and is meant to be used for a restore if needed in the future.
      Does this answer your ques­tions?
      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow
