It’s nearly impossible to believe that the holidays are just around the corner. In fact, the shopping season is even shorter this year because Thanksgiving falls later than usual. This weekend is a wonderful time to start compiling your holiday shopping lists. Retailers are gearing up for Black Friday, and the early shoppers are posed to pick up the best deals.

We have three amazing apps available from the Apple App Store to help you make shopping lists: LifeTopix, My.Agenda (with in-app purchase), and My.Shopping. What’s great about LightArrow apps is they’re not just beneficial for the holiday season – they’ll help you stay productive and on task all year long.

Learn How LightArrow Apps Make Holiday Shopping Easy

The short slideshow below introduces LifeTopix’s shopping features. Enjoy!

With the LifeTopix and My.Shopping apps, you can manage shopping lists and items, products, sellers, coupons, gifts (given and received), and things to sell. With LifeTopix, you can also manage charitable donations, holiday event planning, and website passwords (for online shopping purposes).

Happy Holidays from Team LightArrow!

LightArrow Partners With Box to Turbocharge Your Personal Organization and Business Productivity

box_partnership_seal_blue(1)Organizing your life and business can be difficult, especially when there’s so many appointments, events, meetings, and projects that you’re juggling. And as a matter of course, you have supporting documents for many of your projects and meetings, and it’s always difficult to find those documents when you need them. You can print them and store them in file folders that clutter your office space or you can save them to your hard drive and risk the chance of hardware failure and losing them for good. So what’s the solution for keeping these documents stored safely, easily finding and retrieving them when you need them, and making them accessible wherever you go? LightArrow and Box have teamed up to solve these problems. Imagine you’ve started a new project and you have a weekly meeting to discuss all the logistics. Your boss calls you while you’re at the airport and needs to know the specific details about deadlines and the roadmap. You can pull up the project in LifeTopix then and there, and access all the supporting files containing the weekly meeting notes from the LifeTopix project. Or, perhaps you’ve moved to a new city and you need to start preventive care for your pets. Instantly access a Health project in LifeTopix and locate photos or scanned documents of your pets’ vaccination records. With LightArrow’s new integration with Box, you are now able to easily associate your files that are stored in the cloud with Box to LifeTopix projects, products, events, trips, visits, notes, services, service providers, metrics, subjects, and assets.

Imagine having the ability to link tasks, checklists, appointments, reminders, bookmarks, files, audio, photos, videos, notes, expenses, services, and shopping items to your projects. And picture how impressed your boss will be when you answer his or her questions on the spot, while on the go. And if you’re using more than one iOS device, you can also use Box for device-to-device sync — keep data on all your devices the same.

So how do you get started?

  1. Go to www.Box.com and set up an account if you don’t already have one.

  3. Go to the App Store and purchase LifeTopix.
  4. In LifeTopix, tap Settings and then Logins for Integrations.
  5. Under the Box section, add your Box account.

Introducing My.Shopping, designed for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Organize Shopping lists – your way. Available at the Apple App Store.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had an electronic grocery list that you could refer to over and over again instead of wasting your precious time re-creating that same old list? And can you imagine the time you would save if you always knew which store carried your favorite products, you could save photos of household product requirements, and you could instantly locate stores on a map? This is what My.Shopping can do for you.

With My.Shopping

You can manage individual shopping items.
Manage entire shopping lists.
Manage things you plan to sell.
Record gifts for others and gifts that you’ve received.
Manage coupons.
Record data about your favorite products.
Keep track of your favorite sellers and service providers.

My.Shopping is not like your typical shopping apps that require web logins, subscriptions, show advertisements, and track your shopping habits. It’s installed directly on your device and you can keep it completely private with a passcode lock.

There are many benefits of using an electronic shopping list. For example, you can create reusable shopping lists for everything – clothing, groceries, baby items, office supplies — whatever you buy.

And it’s super easy to add your favorite items to your shopping lists. Just tap the items you wish to buy and then tap add.

Shopping is different for everyone. That’s why we made My.Shopping flexible, allowing you to decide how you want to sort your shopping items. Save time by sorting items by grocery aisle, price, nutritional value, or type of product. You decide.

Sometimes a limited number of stores carries your favorite personal or household items. Always find your favorite products by sorting your lists by seller.

Not only can you create electronic shopping lists, with My.Shopping, you can record all the gifts you given and received. Prevent embarrassment by knowing what gift you gave Uncle Jeff or Aunt Mary last Christmas. or perhaps you’re hosting a baby shower or birthday party? Keep track of your gifts electronically so you can easily send thoughtful thank you notes.

Do you host garage sales or sell on Craigslist or eBay? With My.Shopping you can monitor all the items that you sell.

With My.Shopping, save money by easily organizing your coupons.

For stores that accept non-printed coupons, take photos of flyers and coupons and use them while shopping.

For online coupons, add bookmarks and instantly access coupons while at checkout.

And how often do you wish you could use a coupon but it has expired? Track dates and see alerts for upcoming expirations.

Organizing your favorite products and product details can get frustrating.

By using text notes, photos, audio, or video you can easily find household product details such as battery sizes, air filters, coffee filters, printer ink, types of lightbulbs, room dimensions, paint colors, cartridges, or more.

Or imagine your friend bought a great pair of cowboy boots and you want to find the same pair. Take a photo, record the details, and schedule a due date for purchase.

With My.Shopping you can keep track of your favorite stores and service providers.

Save the details such as the name, referrer, or website URL from your iOS contacts. Call or email instantly from My.Shopping. Easily set the location and view it on the map so you always know where to find your favorite stores.

Are you a savvy shopper who’s tired of the never-ending email chains of shopping items?

If you choose to purchase Sync + Share pack, you can send a list directly to a spouse or partner from the app through email and they can open it in their My.Shopping app. Or for instant collaboration, you can share data through a free Dropbox account.

If you’re managing a busy household or business sometimes you need reminders when shopping items are due.

“What Matters Now” on your home screen lets you know what’s due.

And you can get alerted on your device at the time of the event until up to 60 days before. You decide.

You can also choose to view shopping lists and items on your iOS calendars so you can make sure never to forget an important item.

If you’re looking for the ultimate app to keep your shopping organized your way, look no further. We’ve got you covered.

For more information, go to www.lightarrow.com or find My.Shopping at the Apple App Store in the lifestyle category.

Thanks for watching.
