  • Susana { I would love to purchase and try your app - it looks as if it might be the integrated solution for which I've been searching! However, through reading numerous reviews, it seems as if you don't yet have a laptop / desktop version. Is that correct? And if so, is one in development? Thanks! } – Oct 22, 12:36 PM
  • Team LightArrow { Hi Carrie, Thank you for reaching out to us with a great suggestion! You are correct - since that feature is by-design for users to quick add items to the selected date (and the view remembering the selected date from before), it can trip up users when they're just returning to the Calendar views to add something quickly. We can add an option in an update soon to always open the Calendar views with today's date (while maintaining the selected date when switching between calendar view options).

  • Carrie { Hi! Just a comment/fix request. It would be great if each time you open monthly calendar view it would jump back to today's date. I find that if I go into it and set an event in the future then go out and do something else I come back and try to quick add and it adds it to the future date. Know what I mean? Thanks!

  • WC { Thanks for the reply. I don't think this is what I meant by my questions. I just want an appointment that I enter through LIfeTopix (into e.g my outlook calendar) to sync with that outlook calendar (but also display in LifeTopix) and not have [LifeTopix] automatically tacked at the end of the entry when I look in my outlook calendar (on another device) or in the iOS calendar synced with outlook. Is that possible? It seems that you solution just disables syncing so that my entry in Lifetopix just doesn't syn with my outlook calendar e.g when I view that calendar on another device. Thanks for the clarification. } – Oct 02, 5:28 PM
  • Team LightArrow { Hi, Thanks for reaching out to us! The reason we append the label “[LifeTopix]” to the iOS event name is so that our App can tell it’s the corresponding event to the item created from our App. You can turn off the auto-creation of iOS Calendar items in the My Settings options in our app by type. You can do that by going to "Settings", and then tap "My Settings". At the bottom of "My Settings" you can turn off iOS Calendar Reminders by setting the item to "No calendar entry". Then tap the "Save" button in the upper right hand corner. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions or comments. Team LightArrow Austin, Texas } – Oct 01, 10:36 PM

    Just downloaded Pro.Calendar tonite. So far I like it, but miss the “day” badge on the icon. Did I miss how to get the day to show or is this an upcoming feature?

    Thanks and keep up the great work.

      Hi Doug,

      Thanks for reaching out to us and for the kind words! Currently in Pro.Calendar we show a badge with the number of overdue items only – both on the app icon and on the Home icon in the dashboard.

      Can you please clarify what you meant by day badge? We love feedback from our users to improve it to do things they want.

      Please do not hesitate if you have any further questions or comments.

        Wow….you guys are great when it comes to responding to questions. I’m impressed.

        I’m sorry I didn’t explain myself better. I guess I should have said “date” on the badge icon. Most all other calendar apps will show you the date, i.e., 8 if it’s the 8th or the month or 25, if it’s the 25th of the month on the home icon. I find this very useful because sometimes I need to know what day/date it is without actually opening the app and can just go to my home screen and there it is.

        Thanks guys….

    Hello,
    When last I visited this web site, I saw that accommodation for rotating, repeat work schedules was going to be added to the Life Topix app sometime in July (2014). Any thoughts? Actually if Life Topix could be made to sync with the “CopApp” work scheduling app it would be perfect. Because of my rotating shift schedule I find myself using CopApp more but it is very basic. I purchased Life Topix so all would be consolidated in one place and I would rather use Life Topix but will go nuts switching back and forth.
    Thank You,
    Lisa

      Hi Lisa,

      Thank you for reaching out!

      We think you are referring to the “Routines” feature (Daily/Weekly/Monthly rotating schedules of mixed bag of items) we had originally intended for 8.1 (the release that came out last week). Because of the number of big changes in that update, we moved the Routines feature and some other things to 8.1, currently targeted for mid September. We will look at CopApp, but out first priority will be to get the schedules feature in our app itself.

      Our Roadmap page is being updated with the contents of our 8.2 update: http://lightarrow.com/lifetopix/roadmap

      We really appreciate your feedback.

    I love the way the app is improving but I’m seeing a few inconsistencies with the tasks. I am sometimes able to associate a note with a project and sometimes it will let me associate it with a task, but I’ve found it doesn’t always show the entire list of notes I have so I can’t always associate the note I need with the task or project I’m working on. I also lost an entire note today that has been an ongoing list of dates for a couple months. That note wasn’t even open at the time none I’m lost. Is there something I’m missing in saving the on notes and associating them. Thank you

      Hello Karen,

      Thank you for reaching out to us, and for your kind words.

      High-level Topic objects like Project, Notes, Events, ServiceProviders, etc. can contain a lot to types of other objects. Note that tasks are not high-level topic objects. But, tasks can be associated with another Topic object.

      If you want to see the entire list of notes regardless of what objects they are associated with, go to “My Topics” –> “Notes + Files, Lists” –> Notes.

      Did you check the Recent view (the clock icon in the left navigation menu) for the lost note? Also, if you remember anything about the title of the lost note, you may be able to search for it in the search view (search icon in the left navigation menu).

      We would be happy to assist you over the phone to clear any confusion. Please let us know.

    Unusable for many unless the font size is enlarged. It’s a shame, it would be an amazing problem-solving app otherwise.

      Hi Patty,

      Thanks for reaching out. We improved the readability in 8.0 with better contrast on the font and the text colors. We totally agree that we need to support larger font sizes as an option. We apologize we have not done that yet, after saying we’d do it for a long time. 8.0 just became too big an update with several much-awaited things and we had to get it out as it took such a long time. We are not stopping there – we’ll continue with usability enhancements. If you have already updated to 8.0, do you mind letting us know which views you’d prefer the option to set larger font sizes first? It helps us to prioritize and get it done in pieces, quicker.

    Love the look of version 8.

    I’ve already written in about the multiple clicks needed to mark a task as done, but I’ve got a few other things I want to mention along those lines:

    1] Getting things done is taking me longer. I expect that when I click on something [a task, an event, project, etc.] that click will open the item. Instead I have to make another click to open the item. I think I understand why you’ve changed this a bit, but I much prefer having the old way back where I click to the right of the item [where the three dots were] to access a menu of actions I want to perform.
    2] You’ve changed the way all tasks are viewed/sorted. Used to be I could have the tasks listed and the sort feature above the task window would allow me to show All, Done, Completed, Overdo. I loved having my open tasks sorted by due date earliest to last. This gave me a great overview of what upcoming tasks I have. That now is lost. Or at least I cannot find how to do that. When I click the sort button and click Due Date it sorts by furthest due date. I’ve got over 1500 tasks through 2025 and I am shown 2025 first! I have to scroll all the way down to see my earliest tasks! And then when I open the month. they are not sorted by due date! I hate to say this, but this is not helpful for me and so now I am having to go back to using Reminders for my tasks. When I click on my Task List I want to be able to see all my tasks by most recent due date. I also want to be able to see my overdo tasks. This was possible in version 7 but is gone in version 8. Please. PLEASE. Bring this back.

      These are great points. Our 8.1 update, targeted for April, is focussed on tasks, calendar, schedules and related things. We’ll make it better to accomplish what you’ve mentioned. Would you be open to a phone call with us to go over some of these things, or other related things you may want to cover? If so, please reach out to us at support@lightarrow.com and we’ll set up a call.

    Thanks for responding to my two previous questions. I am just blown away by how quickly you respond to questions. Your responsiveness and support must be the best in the industry. I’d also like to concur with those who have said what an awesome app and upgrade this is. Especially love the ability to see my emails and Facebook items in the pro inbox, and to bring them into LifeTopix as tasks, appointments, etc.
