The iPhone 5 has hit the streets — with a larger four-inch screen and higher resolution. All of Apple’s older generation phones have had 3.5-inch screens — so this is big news. This new screen changes the user experience for iPhone app users, and app developers are scrambling to optimize their apps to take advantage of the newly-added real estate. In fact, according to “Notable apps yet to take advantage of larger iPhone 5 screen” from the Los Angeles Times, many notable apps still haven’t updated their apps as of Sept.24, 2012.
Today we announced that LightArrow has updated LifeTopix for the iPhone 5. Version 5.04 is optimized for the new iPhone 5 and iOS 6, taking advantage of the iPhone 5’s larger four-inch screen and higher resolution. Now, you can do more, be more, and live more, but also see more!
As a robust and complete organization and productivity app, LifeTopix utilizes very powerful navigation and views. Our development team was very excited about optimizing LifeTopix for the taller screen because they knew the greater value that it would provide for our customers. The additional room really makes LifeTopix shine on this new device — giving users a similar experience to using LifeTopix with the much larger iPad.
In case you haven’t had a chance to upgrade to the iPhone 5, we’ve included some screenshots below to give you an idea of how LifeTopix appears with the larger 4 inch screen.

You’ll see that By filling out the iPhone 5’s 4-inch screen, you can better take advantage of LifeTopix’s 9-view dashboard, Quick Menu, 12 topic views, and detail views with side panel support. The detail views in LifeTopix are designed for height because of the richness of the app so the larger screen results in enhanced usability.
A lot of apps have been updated, and I’m sure we’ll see more in the weeks to come.
