LightArrow Adds Advanced To-Do Lists to LifeTopix Personal Organization App

Nov 6, 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 update includes new cus­tomiz­able to-do list func­tion­al­ity, inte­gra­tion with the iOS Reminders app, cal­en­dar enhance­ments, and sev­eral usabil­ity improve­ments. The 5.1 release rein­forces the company’s mis­sion to help users use mobile tech­nol­ogy to be more effi­cient and pro­duc­tive. More­over, Life­Topix con­tin­ues to be one of the most afford­able ways for users to use mul­ti­ple iOS devices to orga­nize all their life information.

Stress­ing the impor­tance of cus­tomiz­able to-do lists as first and fore­most for users, users can now choose, view, and cre­ate to-do lists directly from the What’s Next sec­tion of the Life­Topix Home view, as well as mark exist­ing check­lists to be avail­able on-demand as to-do lists in the What’s Next view. These lists work like reg­u­lar check­lists, allow­ing users to add and reorder check­list items and mark them as com­plete. To-do lists can be asso­ci­ated with the built-in top­ics, such as projects or events. They also can be shared via Face­book, Twit­ter, email, or text mes­sage for col­lab­o­ra­tion purposes.

We are con­stantly inno­vat­ing, inspired by users who want to accom­plish a lot more with their pro­duc­tiv­ity app than sim­ply man­ag­ing a cute list of tasks,” said Adi Mishra, CEO of LightAr­row. “For exam­ple, the cus­tomized to-do lists fea­ture is entirely dri­ven by users who want to eas­ily jug­gle mul­ti­ple lists of things to do, bring­ing them into focus on demand, as needed. There is no rea­son to jam cus­tom to-do lists like Morn­ing Rou­tine, Pack­ing for Trip, Evening Baby Care, etc. into a sin­gle list. That’s what the overly sim­plis­tic list apps force you to do.”

For iOS 6 users, Life­Topix now inte­grates with the iOS Reminders app, which allows Life­Topix users to inter­act with reminders cre­ated through the Reminders app and Siri. Users can open the Reminders app 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. This fea­ture gives Life­Topix users more flex­i­bil­ity, allow­ing them to cre­ate reminders via Life­Topix, Siri, or directly from their Reminders app.

Life­Topix greatly enhances users’ capa­bil­i­ties for get­ting things done with new cal­en­dar and noti­fi­ca­tion enhance­ments. The Life­Topix cal­en­dar includes a new, improved look and feel for bet­ter vis­i­bil­ity of cal­en­dar items. A new Week view is included, sup­ple­ment­ing the stan­dard Day, Month, and Year views. As an enhance­ment to the Finances topic, users can now see bill pay­ment amounts on Life­Topix cal­en­dar views — help­ing users bet­ter orga­nize their finances.

A top pro­duc­tiv­ity app for iOS devices, Life­Topix con­tin­ues to deliv­er native sup­port for man­ag­ing tasks and projects; track­ing ser­vices and the peo­ple who pro­vide them; 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.

Pric­ing and Availability

Life­Topix 5.1 is avail­able imme­di­ately from the Apple App Store as a free update for any­one with pre­vi­ous Life­Topix ver­sions. For new users, Life­Topix 5.1 is avail­able for a lim­ited time at a spe­cial price of 99 cents. As a uni­ver­sal app, a sin­gle pur­chase enti­tles the buyer to use this top pro­duc­tiv­ity app on their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

    Oh okay thanks! I’ll try adding a check­list to the note. I don’t mind using tasks as “to do lists” but even when I hit “date” (as opposed to “date and time”) a time still comes up (usu­ally the time I’m post­ing it) and I don’t want my tasks to dis­ap­pear once that time comes.…I want them vis­i­ble for the entire day. Is that a bug that needs to be fixed? I’m new to this app so I apol­o­gize for the sec­ond question.

      Hi Suzy,

      We are more than happy to answer your questions.

      You are cor­rect in stat­ing that you can­not set the date of a task with­out also set­ting a time as well. This is work­ing as designed but we do plan to add date only sup­port in the future.

      Tasks will still be vis­i­ble on a given date even if the time is set to the past.
      For exam­ple in the “Today” sec­tion of the “Home” dash­board view you will see all tasks with due dates set for today even if their times are ear­lier in the day.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow

    Hi! How can I inte­grate a to do list with a date on the cal­en­dar? I want to have a run­ning check­list of things to do on a cer­tain date with­out spe­cific times or reminders…thanks!

      Hi Suzy,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      Cur­rently only tasks, shop­ping lists, notes, and bills have due dates in Life­Topix. We do plan to sup­port due dates for check­lists (which are used as to do lists) in the future.
      In the mean time to help solve your prob­lem you might con­sider cre­at­ing a note and assign­ing the date to it. You can then add the check­list to that note.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow
