Organizing your calendar and schedule is a big challenge when you have a lot going on — and most of us do.

And if you’re a mom who’s organizing the whole family, it’s even more challenging.

Between Zumba, baseball games, meetings, carpools, and clubs, you feel like your drowning and it’s practically impossible to keep it all straight.

This is when LifeTopix and our starter app, My.Agenda, come to the rescue.

LifeTopix is a central hub for your tasks, projects, shopping, events, travel, and more. My.Agenda is a starter, more economical version of LifeTopix that enables you to start small and expand as your organizational needs grow.

As the central hub of your life, LifeTopix works with all your calendars, including Outlook, Google Calendar, Yahoo Calendar, your device Calendar, and others. You just need to configure these items in your device’s Mail, Contacts, and Calendars Settings.

So Why LifeTopix?

You might be wondering why you would use LifeTopix instead of your standard device calendar or a free online calendar.

There’s lots of ways to justify it – with 12 big reasons. The 12 Life Topics, which are intelligently designed topics that manage more than just calendar events.

These topics are connected and in one place, which eliminates the app hopping that you do when you install a flock of apps to do many different, disconnected things.

For example, when your contacts and service providers are linked to your calendar events and other items, you can easily contact them if you’re running late in just a few simple taps. You never have to open your device’s contacts or search for an email address again.

And don’t worry about getting lost with LifeTopix’s location services, you can always view your destination on the map.

LifeTopix keeps the whole family on the same page because it uses cloud services such as Dropbox, SkyDrive, and Google Drive for device-to-device sync. Because of this, LifeTopix or My.Agenda becomes the perfect place to share your kids’ doctors appointments, playdates, sports, and other events with the whole family.

And LifeTopix gives you other options for sharing. You can share items via email, text, or social media with friends or family members.

Before you get started with Cloud Sync, all you need to do is go to and set up a free account for the family to share.

Once you’ve set it up, everyone in the family can point LifeTopix to the Dropbox folder using LifeTopix Settings.

Next, Voila, everyone can start using Dropbox sync.

You’ll find another video on our website or youTube channel that describes these steps in detail.

Now everyone can be on the same page about what’s going on from appointments, to checklists, to bill payments and more — we’ve got you covered.

Now that everyone’s sharing the same calendar, you can easily add all types of items to your family’s agenda without a lot of nagging.

And your weekly review is a piece of cake with this handy agenda view.

We know you have a lot going on, keep track of it and keep everyone in the loop while on the go with LifeTopix.

What is Microsoft SkyDrive and How Can You Take Advantage of it?

As you know, today’s user is flooded with information that’s important to them and many use different cloud services to store their data. Of course, when they’ve stored several documents in the cloud it’s often difficult to remember how to find a document when they need it. This is where LifeTopix comes in — allowing users to locate their documents in context of their projects, parties and other events, trips, and more — bringing everything together into one pocket-sized organization miracle.


We often talk about the popular cloud services that our customers use to manage their documents, photos, and other media. And our users clearly recognize the value of storing and managing their documents in the cloud. Because there are so many excellent cloud services, we’ve chosen to integrate with the best of the best — Google Drive/Docs, Evernote, and Dropbox. We continue to support more and more of these services for device-to-device sync, file access, and backup and restore. And now, we’re very excited to announce our latest addition — Microsoft SkyDrive.

This post is intended to give you a brief introduction of SkyDrive, and how we support it in LifeTopix.

What is SkyDrive?

Similar to Google Drive/Docs and Dropbox, SkyDrive enables users to store their files in the cloud and access them from their mobile devices or personal computers. And like Google Drive/Docs, users can share word processing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations for the purposes of concurrent collaboration. Editing and collaborating is available through the free online version of Microsoft Office products — including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. SkyDrive also includes the ability to create and share OneNote notebooks and Excel surveys, as well as to modify files created with the desktop version of MS Office.

SkyDrive is a free download with 7GB of free storage for starters and upgrade options are available. The mobile app for file access is free and available for Windows Phone, Android, iPhone, and iPad. To get started with SkyDrive, go to and follow the directions.

How Does LifeTopix and SkyDrive Work Together?

In the following sections, detailed information is included that introduces you to the SkyDrive integration. The integration allows:

  • Managing your SkyDrive files in context with your life
  • Syncing LifeTopix data across your multiple devices
  • Backing up and restoring LifeTopix data

Managing Your SkyDrive Files in Context With Your Life

SkyDrive makes it easy to store and share Microsoft Office files created from the desktop app or from the web interface. We have chosen not to replicate this functionality, but rather to allow our users to attach, view, download, and upload files from SkyDrive to LifeTopix. For example, you might choose to attach spreadsheets, OneNote notes, and other documents to a “Paperless Office” project within LifeTopix. The following screenshot shows how LifeTopix can be used to attach files to a project.

After adding your SkyDrive folder to LifeTopix via Notes + Files, the files become available for viewing in context of the project.

Syncing LifeTopix Data Across Your Multiple Devices

We’re very excited that we’ve added device-to-device sync via SkyDrive to our list of cloud services that we support. Still, the most reliable choice for device-to-device sync for LifeTopix is through Dropbox. If it’s imperative that your multiple devices are in sync at all times, we suggest that you use Dropbox. However, we’re continuing to refine the implementation of our device-to-device sync through iCloud, Google Drive, and SkyDrive and expect all services to be equally reliable.

If you would like to set up device-to-device sync through SkyDrive, the process is the same as Dropbox and you can watch the following video to learn how to set it up.

Make sure that you choose Microsoft SkyDrive as the service that you wish to use for syncing, and one caveat I suggest is that you set up a folder in SkyDrive for your sync files prior to configuring your device-to-device sync. In the following example, I’ve set up a folder in SkyDrive and named it LifeTopix, then I referred to it in the My Settings view of the LifeTopix app.

Backing Up and Restoring LifeTopix Data

We recommend that you back up your LifeTopix data on a regular basis to ensure your data is not lost in case of a technical issue or if a device problem occurs. With the addition of SkyDrive integration, it is now possible to back up your data to SkyDrive. Simply set up your Online Folder as shown in the screenshot above. LifeTopix uses the same folder you designate for device-to-device sync for backups and restoring your data.

We hope that you’re as excited as us to have more choices for device-to-device sync, file access, and online backup and restore. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments. We welcome your feedback.
