LifeTopix Integrates with iOS Reminders App to Leverage Siri Voice Control

Nov 14, 2012 — Austin, Texas — LightAr­row, Inc. has released a major update of its pop­u­lar Life­Topix per­sonal orga­ni­za­tion app for the Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. The lat­est Life­Topix app update includes inte­gra­tion with the iOS Reminders app, allow­ing reminders directly cre­ated using Siri Voice Con­trol to be acces­si­ble and man­aged through Life­Topix. This enhance­ment rein­forces the company’s mis­sion to help users use mobile tech­nol­ogy to be more effi­cient and productive.

The 5.1 update includes many new changes, such as new cus­tomiz­able to-do list func­tion­al­ity, cal­en­dar improve­ments, and sev­eral usabil­ity enhance­ments, but the inte­gra­tion with the iOS Reminders app is truly sig­nif­i­cant, allow­ing users to add reminders while being vir­tu­ally hands free.

Users with Siri sim­ply tell Siri what they want to be reminded about and where. For exam­ple, users can say, “Remind me to pick up Timmy from Soc­cer prac­tice at 7:00 p.m. today.” Siri launches the Reminder app and requests con­fir­ma­tion. With the Life­Topix inte­gra­tion, the users can auto­mat­i­cally view their reminders in the Life­Topix Home view (What’s Next), My Cal­en­dar view, and the Events Cal­en­dar to give users a com­plete view of their agenda. Users can open the reminder directly from Life­Topix to edit their reminders or to mark them as com­plete. Users also can cre­ate new entries in the Reminders app from the Life­Topix Events topic.

The inte­gra­tion with the Reminders app joins a rich set of device app inte­gra­tions Life­Topix already pro­vides, includ­ing Cal­en­dar, Con­tacts, Loca­tion and Maps, Local Noti­fi­ca­tions, Pho­tos, Videos, and Voice Memos,” said Ray Leyen­decker, Chief Tech­nol­ogy Offi­cer at LightAr­row. “Apple is con­stantly mak­ing it eas­ier to enter infor­ma­tion into the built-in iOS apps, and as a pro­duc­tiv­ity super app, our respon­si­bil­ity to our users is to allow them to lever­age all their infor­ma­tion with­out any extra effort.”

A top pro­duc­tiv­ity app for iOS devices, Life­Topix con­tin­ues to deliv­er native sup­port for man­ag­ing tasks and projects; track­ing ser­vices and ser­vice providers; main­tain­ing shop­ping lists; track­ing events; coor­di­nat­ing travel and leisure activ­i­ties; log­ging health met­rics; track­ing finances and per­sonal pos­ses­sions; man­ag­ing pho­tos, videos & audio clips; access­ing online file ser­vices; and more.
