LightAr­row AirAc­cess™ is a pow­er­ful and effi­cient desk­top client that allows you to con­nect, wire­lessly, from your Mac to Life­Topix run­ning on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. It makes data entry eas­ier into the app by being able to use the Mac’s big­ger screen and key­board. It han­dles a sub­set of the data sup­ported by Life­Topix and My.Agenda.

The era of mobile com­put­ing is upon us. But great strides in the power of portable devices have not been matched by inter­face advances that allow users to take full advan­tage of these gains. In fact, as devices become smaller and more mobile, the abil­ity to enter and manip­u­late infor­ma­tion on those devices becomes an even greater chal­lenge. This threat­ens to under­mine the very use­ful­ness of these mar­velous lit­tle bun­dles of portability.

Enter AirAc­cess — a pow­er­ful and effi­cient desk­top client that allows you to con­nect, wire­lessly, from your Mac to Life­Topix run­ning on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

NOTE: For LightAr­row AirAc­cess to func­tion, it requires the use of Life­Topix or My.Agenda. It does not store data on the Mac, but rather acts as a con­ve­nient remote inter­face to man­age your Life­Topix data resid­ing on your iOS device.

    When you have the desk­top ver­sion for Window’s 8 com­pleted, will we be able to sync to our iPads and iPhones? I don’t have a Mac (not a fan of them).

    Thanks!

      Hi Kim,

      The Win­dows 8.1 ver­sion of our app will be able to sync with all your iOS devices. We do not cur­rently have a spe­cific time­frame right now for when we will have the Win­dows 8.1 ver­sion available.

    Hello,
    Where may I find older ver­sions of AirAc­cess? I have Mac OSX 10.5.8 and are unable to update but do own a copy of your prod­uct on my iph­hone. Thanks!

      Hi Ser­gio,
      Our free app for the Mac — Life­Topix AirAc­cess — only works on OS X 10.6 or later. We do not plan to sup­port older ver­sions of OS X. Also, we have not updated it in a while, as we are work­ing on a ver­sion of Life­Topix itself for OS X and Win­dows 8.1.
      Best regards,

        Any update on the time frame for Life­Topix on Mac and Windows?

          Hi Adam,

          Thank you for reach­ing out to us.

          We are work­ing on desk­top ver­sions for the Mac and Win­dows 8.1. We are hop­ing for late sum­mer, but do not have a con­crete time­frame yet.

          We cur­rently have a free Mac client that is not a full app — just a “remote access” to the app on the iOS device. It’s called Life­Topix AirAccess.

    Inter­est­ing premise, but too restrict­ing. When you decide to have an OSX and/or Win­dows client, I’ll be back.

      Hi,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us.

      Our cur­rent plan is to sup­port Mac, Win­dows (tablets and PC) and Android devices, with full auto­matic sync across devices in the future.

    Hi

    Thanks for such a great app. Keep up the good work.

    Cur­rently my prob­lem is that I have entered my assets for insur­ance pur­poses but can­not see at a glance the entire list­ing to check whether I have left any­thing out or to print it. Is there a way I can export my home and assets data to a file I can view and print, say in Excel or Word, or any other means of achiev­ing what I need to do. If so, kindly pro­vide detailed instructions.

    Your assis­tance with this will be greatly appre­ci­ated as it has taken me months to insert the data.

    Regards
    Rosina Galdes

      Hi Rosina,
      The All Assets view shows them in one view where you can sort alpha­bet­i­cally or by last update time. But cur­rently there is not a way to export the infor­ma­tion. We do plan to add CSV export to asset list view in the future.

    Hi, I just started using Life­Topix after using a mish-mash of apps for tasks. I go back and forth between my iMac and my iPhone, so I pre­fer enter­ing large num­bers of tasks on my iMac. I used to use Cozi, but I didn’t like the browser based aspect of enter­ing data. I down­loaded Airac­cess in the hopes that it would give me a desk­top based ver­sion of data view­ing and entry, but hav­ing to turn on wifi and con­nect makes it rather unwieldy. Are there plans for a more robust Mac app with cloud sync­ing? (Which would make it like Omni­fo­cus and Things.)


    • LightArrow
      Aug 27, 2012

      Alex,
      We agree — it’d be really help­ful to have a full-fledged app on the desk­top (with iCloud sync­ing on the Mac). There is so much we want to do for our users, but we are a small team, and it’ll all take time. We have so far focused on mak­ing the app bet­ter and more com­plete on the device. 5.0 was a huge step towards that. We plan to ded­i­cate more time to the other plat­forms now based on a very high demand from our users. We’ll update our roadmap page with bet­ter infor­ma­tion over the next few weeks once we make some more progress on the tech­ni­cal work.

    I do not see Windows-based AirAc­cess devel­op­ment on your Roadmap. What is the sta­tus? Your post on April 1, 2012 sug­gested that it was already in the devel­op­ment process. We NEED Windows-based!


    • LightArrow
      Aug 24, 2012

      We are so sorry for not pro­vid­ing updates. We put a wrench in our plans a lit­tle bit with the pend­ing arrival of Win­dows 8, try­ing to see if we can do a full-fledged app instead of AirAc­cess to sup­port both the tablet and the desk­top. We will put it in the roadmap once we have a bet­ter idea of the time­frame, but we’l update the page to bet­ter describe the work we are doing.

    Any plans for Span­ish lan­guage?? I help with tra­duc­tion, if you want

    Regards

      May 30, 2012

      Hello Car­los,

      We do have plans to trans­late our prod­ucts to other lan­guages, and Span­ish will be high on that list. We don’t have a date for that yet, but we hope to begin work­ing on that soon.

      Thanks very much for your offer of help on that!

      Best regards,

      Thank you Ipadding­momma — we really appre­ci­ate the offer! We will take you up on that when the time comes. We have been mak­ing progress on our tech­ni­cal assess­ment and hope to get the Win­dows sup­port work started this summer.

    I just started using the app and I am lov­ing it so far. Will there be any update on the sync fea­ture. It seems that when I set an appoint­ment or task from the iPad or the AirAcess it does show up on my iCal. But if I make a change to the item from iCal it does not update on the App or AirAcess. This seems to be the only down­fall as my pur­pose for get­ting the app is to be able to have my iPad or iPhone on hand at work to keep track of appointments/notes and so on and to be able to use the AirAcess to type in longer dis­cus­sions (then sync with app) had with my employ­ees so I can have a ref­er­ence and fol­low up. But this is the only app by far that has even given the abil­ity to sync across all of my apple devices so it would be amaz­ing to get the last few bugs fixed.

      Hi Joey, thanks so much for the com­pli­ments and the issue with the sce­nario you describe. Cur­rently device cal­en­dar entries are updated from Life­Topix, but not vice versa. In 5.0 (due out in June), we are mak­ing two improve­ments: 1. The abil­ity to update the dates on Life­Topix items when the asso­ci­ated device cal­en­dar entry is updated. 2. The abil­ity to cre­ate Life­Topix items from device cal­en­dar entries that are not cur­rently asso­ci­ated with Life­Topix (we show them in My Cal­en­dar and What’s Next). We hope that will accom­plish what you need.
      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow

    Any updates on the time­line for a win­dows ver­sion of Air Access?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Apr 01, 2012

      While we have made progress on this, we don’t yet have a firm date for when we will com­plete the work. At this point, we antic­i­pate late this summer.

    I’d love to see AirAc­cess for Win­dows, as well, please! I was just think­ing how much more effi­cient it would be to be able to access my project/task plan­ner on a big­ger key­board and screen. It’s per­fect that the data isn’t in two places, or need­ing to be syn­chro­nized, it’s just a bet­ter way of access­ing it when you aren’t mobile!


    • LifeTopix Support
      Jan 29, 2012

      We agree. We’ve begun the tech­ni­cal assess­ment for a Win­dows ver­sion. Once we have a bet­ter idea we’ll share a time­line on our roadmap page.

        Thanks for your input Carlos.

        We have begun the inves­ti­ga­tion into the tech­ni­cal work required to sup­port a Win­dows ver­sion of AirAc­cess. Rest assured that this is in our prod­uct plans, and we hope to be able to deliver it within the next few months.

    I def­i­nitely need a win­dows inter­face and synch with at least Out­look. Please.


    • LifeTopix Support
      Jan 18, 2012

      Hi Alan,

      We’ve noted your request for a Win­dows ver­sion of AirAccess.

      As for sync with Out­look… we do have a future roadmap item to inves­ti­gate our abil­ity to sync with Out­look directly. In the interim, in case you are not aware, you can sync Out­look with your device Cal­en­dar, and then you can view your device Cal­en­dar items within Life­Topix by enabling the Include Device Cal­en­dar fil­ter option in My Cal­en­dar in LifeTopix.

      We hope that helps.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.

    Is there a chance that there will be a win­dow ver­sion of AirAc­cess in the future?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Dec 22, 2011

      Thanks for your ques­tion Tina.

      Since the under­ly­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy used in AirAc­cess is Bon­jour, there is indeed a fair chance that we will develop a Windows-based ver­sion of AirAc­cess some time next year. As with every­thing, how quickly we work on that will be dri­ven by cus­tomer demand so we know where to pri­or­i­tize it against all the other things we’re work­ing on.

      As always, stayed tuned to our roadmap for up-to-date infor­ma­tion on what’s com­ing and when.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.

    Does AirAccess/Lifetopix allow me to attach files from my com­puter (i.e.,PDF files [Adobe Reader inte­gra­tion]? Microsoft Office doc­u­ments or iWork doc­u­ments [Pages, Num­bers, Keynote integration]?

    Do you plan to inte­grate with other apps like: Lemon/Shoeboxed (receipts), mint.com, Evernote/Day One, wunderlist?

    Do you have iCloud sync now?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Dec 08, 2011

      Hi Jantzen,

      Yes, AirAc­cess does allow you to attach files from your com­puter. Here is how you would do that today in AirAc­cess 3.0:

      1. In AirAc­cess, select Files and Fold­ers in the left-hand panel

      2. In the Files and Fold­ers view of AirAc­cess, click on the up-arrow-in-a-circle to the right of My Doc­u­ments to bring up a “Select a file to upload” dialog

      3. Nav­i­gate and select the file you wish to upload to your device, then click “Upload file to Life­Topix device”. The oper­a­tion will com­plete and dis­play a dia­log con­firm­ing that the upload was successful

      4. In Life­Topix, to add the file you just uploaded to, for exam­ple, a project, tap Tasks + Projects > All Projects, then tap the detail dis­clo­sure but­ton (>) next to the project you wish to add the file to

      5. From the project’s details view, tap Files, then tap +/- in the title bar to bring up the file picker

      6. Select the file you uploaded via AirAc­cess, then tap Save.

      In AirAc­cess 4.0, we hope to be able to make this all pos­si­ble via one action so that you can upload from your com­puter directly to the topic object.

      As for inte­gra­tion with other prod­ucts and ser­vices, today, we inte­grate with a num­ber of 3rd party prod­ucts and ser­vices such as Drop­box, Google Docs, Face­book, Twit­ter today. Release 4.0 will intro­duce inte­gra­tion with Ever­note notes. We con­tinue to con­sider other prod­ucts and ser­vices to inte­grate with based on user demand/request, so we will add the ones you asked about to our list.

      As for iCloud sync, that is planned for inclu­sion in our 4.0 release. Our roadmap sim­ply refers to “device to device sync”, but the under­ly­ing tech­nol­ogy we are using for that is, in fact, iCloud. We have com­pleted the devel­op­ment work for that and have been in final test­ing for some time. If you fol­low any of the Apple news sites or devel­op­ment forums, you may have noticed that lots of folks are report­ing that iCloud reli­a­bil­ity is very “fluid”. Given how seri­ously we take our com­mit­ment to our users to pro­vide them with a qual­ity expe­ri­ence, we will have to con­tinue to mon­i­tor that sit­u­a­tion closely in hopes that this under­ly­ing tech­nol­ogy becomes more sta­ble before the planned sub­mis­sion of our 4.0 release to Apple this month.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.
