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.

LifeTopix 5.1 is available immediately from the Apple App Store as a free update for anyone with previous LifeTopix versions.
