• Team LightArrow { Hi Danielle, Thank you for reaching out to us! LifeTopix has the ability to process any selected text from any Inbox Feed (webpage, email, facebook post, tweet) or any bookmark (in Bookmarks + Lockers topic) opened from within LifeTopix. As soon as you select some text in any of the above, an option to “Process in LifeTopix” shows along with “Copy” option. When you tap on the “Process in LifeTopix” option, you will be able to convert the selected text in to any type of item (Task, Project, Note, Inbox Item, Trip, Event, Product, etc.). Note that the “Process in LifeTopix” functionality requires the in-app purchase of “Pro Inbox Pack”. Should you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us again.

  • Danielle { Is there any ability to clip webpages directly into life topix? Any bookmarklet or similar from the safari browser? That IMO is the biggest thing missing from apps that are trying to replace springpad - either they save web clippings and don't do much else or they do the notes and lists and planning but they don't save proper web clippings. } – Sep 22, 8:01 AM
  • Team LightArrow { Hi Jodhi, Thank you for reaching out to us! If you've purchased LifeTopix or LifeTopix pack in-app purchase in any of our other products, along with quite a few other features, you will get the ability to add custom Context Tags with custom colors for various items. The context tags show below the icon of the items with their color in list views sections of the month and year calendar views. Each of the context tags can be assigned a color and they show up as colored tags for each context. We allow for overriding the item colors with the context color (instead of topic color) in our settings view. This way you can give items context tags as needed (for matching your various staff groups). Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us again.

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.... } – Sep 15, 10:08 AM

  • Team LightArrow { Hi Pete, Thank you for reaching out to us with the issue, and for the kind words! We’re sorry about the non-functioning link in the Shopping Item detail view. This will be fixed in our next LifeTopix 8.2 update. Meanwhile, as a workaround, when tap on the shopping item in the shopping list, an expanded cell with the more button shows-up. When you tap on the more button and tap on “Product Details”, it will take you to the Product detail view where you can make changes to the Product. It works as described by default. However, if you have changed the primary tap functionality in "My Settings", then you can tap-and-hold on the shopping item cell to reveal the expanded cell view. Should you have any further comments or questions, do not hesitate to contact us again. Best Regards, Team LightArrow Austin TX } – Sep 03, 3:32 PM
  • Pete { Hi. Found a non functioning link. If I tap on an item in a Shopping List or All Shopping Items view, it takes me to the Shopping Item view where I can make temporary changes (seller, price, unit, etc.) to that product. However, if I tap on the ">" on the Product name line to permanently update that product, nothing happens. To add a new seller or make any other permanent changes to that product, I have to go back to the Shopping + Gift view, tap on the Products view, and select the product. Then, if I'm not finished with my Shopping List, I have to go back there agains. Seems like a lot of unnecessary steps that I think the ">" was intended to eliminate. Looking forward to your 8.2 release this month as the app gets better and better with each release. Thanks for a great app. } – Sep 03, 3:06 PM

    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.

      Paul,

      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 caring and allowing us to be and do better.

    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.
