    Can I change the 12 life top­ics? Many of the top­ics pro­vided are not rel­e­vant. Is there a way for me to per­son­al­ize the topics?

      Hi Frank,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us.

      The My Top­ics view has a fil­ter icon at the top-right cor­ner that can be used to hide irrel­e­vant top­ics and also to reorder them. In the future, we will allow cus­tom topics.

      Also, some of the top­ics may be rel­e­vant inside other Top­ics via “Touch­points”. Touch­points are inter­est­ing from a vis­i­bil­ity per­spec­tive — for exam­ple, being able to see Edu­ca­tion projects (they are projects, they belong in that topic) from the Edu­ca­tion topic, Edu­ca­tion notes, also being vis­i­ble from the Edu­ca­tion topic, etc. — for the sake of com­plete­ness.
      More on touch­points: http://lightarrow.com/lifetopix/common-questions/q-what-are-touchpoints

      Should you have any fur­ther ques­tions, do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us again.

    Any plans to be able to email task or notes to LifeTopix?

      Hi Rick,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us.

      In our 8.0 update we have added pow­er­ful fea­tures that will allow you to cre­ate smart rules against your email, Face­book, Twit­ter accounts (and also the web) and then cre­ate feeds that match those rules. From the feeds you will be able to con­vert items such as emails to items in our app. For exam­ple you will be able to take an email and con­vert it to a task or a note as you men­tioned. These advanced fea­tures will be made avail­able as an in-app pur­chase in Life­Topix for a rea­son­able price.

    I am a devoted Life­Topix user and know it has made a BIG dif­fer­ence in my life. My friends observe how things work for me and con­stantly ask me how I keep the care­giver to a 93 old mother, work­ing per­son, mom and wife roles work­ing so well. I always answer: use LifeTopix!

    One ques­tions I can­not find an answer to: I don’t see a sum when I orga­nize my gro­cery list by seller. I have costs for each item, but the sum shows $0.00. What am I doing wrong.

    Keep up the good work: it really makes a difference.

    Hello, I’ve been using my. Agenda, and I really like to see my accom­plished tasks from pre­vi­ous days in some sort of time­line or cal­en­dar fash­ion. The prob­lem is that when I com­plete a task I set for myself, it seems to be removed from the cal­en­dar. Is there any way to change that?

      Thanks for reach­ing out!
      In the Agenda and My Cal­en­dar views, you can tap on the fil­ter icon on the top right to make sure that Show Inac­tive Items is checked, so that com­pleted items can con­tinue show. In the Agenda view, how­ever, only items from today onwards show — noth­ing from pre­vi­ous days.

    Good after­noon. When set­ting up my bills on the pay­ment cal­en­dar it defaults to date and time. Even when I change the set­ting to date only, it still goes back to date and time, and it does it whether I am adding some­thing new, or try­ing to edit a bill that is already there. I tried set­tings to see if I am defaulted to some­thing but see noth­ing to change. What am I miss­ing.
    Thank you for your assistance.

      Hi Diane,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      In our next update we have added a sec­tion in our set­tings that will allow you to set the default date type for many items includ­ing bills. You will now be able to set the bills date type to “Date Only” here and then when­ever you open or cre­ate a bill the date type will default to “Date Only”

      We appre­ci­ate your patience.

    I travel for work and when my IPad updates the time zone, all the times in my cal­en­dar also adjust. I missed a flight. How do I stop this from happening?


    • Team LightArrow
      Oct 29, 2013

      Hi Theresa,

      We sin­cerely apol­o­gize for this.

      We have found the cause of this issue and are fix­ing the prob­lem now. We will have the fix included in our next patch which we are sub­mit­ting to Apple this week. Apple typ­i­cally takes about three days to approve our app.

      The prob­lem seems to only occur in the Day and Week views of the cal­en­dar. This prob­lem does not occur in the “Agenda” view or the Month view. If you are in the Day or Week view and you are see­ing the wrong times switch­ing over to the Month view then back will resolve the issue for now.

      Once again, we sin­cerely apol­o­gize for this and will have the fix included in our next update.

      We appre­ci­ate your patience.

      Hi Leila,

      Yes, you and your spouse can use our app to share your cal­en­dars. Our app works directly with your device Cal­en­dar app so as long as you include your shared cal­en­dars in your device Cal­en­dar app Life­Topix will be able to sync events to and from your shared calendars.

          Hi Cas­san­dra,

          Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

          The iOS Cal­en­dar app is synced between all your iOS devices auto­mat­i­cally by Apple if you have iCloud enabled in Apple’s Set­tings app on both devices using the same iTunes account. If you have online cal­en­dars such as Google or Yahoo included in your iOS Cal­en­dar app then these online cal­en­dars are auto­mat­i­cally synced with the iOS Cal­en­dar app. Our app,on each device, shows the items from all the cal­en­dar accounts set up in the iOS Cal­en­dar app. For set up of sync of our app’s own data across devices, we highly rec­om­mend the Drop­box option in our sync setup in the our app’s Set­tings view.

    I am frus­trated. After a cou­ple hrs of try­ing to resolve this issue, Life­Topix is reject­ing the seller “Weg­mans” I keep try­ing to add.
    What are the known issues for this? I don’t have any­more time to spend on trou­bleshoot­ing it. As this is my main shop­ping cen­ter, I want it listed as a seller.
    Cosco and Wal­mart are defaults but no Weg­mans! I find that troubling.

      Hi Mary,

      So sorry to hear that. We are not aware of this issue, and would like to work with you to resolve it.
      Would you pre­fer walk­ing through the issue over a phone call? If so, we can set some­thing up for either later this after­noon, or tomor­row.
      Please email use at sup­port @ lightar­row . com (with­out the spaces) if you wish to set up a call.

        Mary,
        We have dis­cov­ered that if you add a Seller from the main shop­ping topic view (+ on top right), the “Seller” cat­e­gory foes not get set cor­rectly. If you go to the Sell­ers view and add it in there, the ser­vice provider gets cre­ated prop­erly with “Seller” as its cat­e­gory. If you go to the Peo­ple + Ser­vices topic from My Top­ics, and then go to Ser­vice Providers > All Ser­vice Providers, and see Weg­mans in there, please open it and set its cat­e­gory to Seller. If you have mul­ti­ple ones, you can open them and delete them.

        We are sorry about that and we’ll fix it in the next update, bit for now please cre­ate Sell­ers by going into the Sell­ers view.

        If your issue is some­thing else, we’ll work with you to resolve it. We are very sorry.

      Sep 19, 2013

      Hi Marina,

      Thanks for reach­ing out!

      Life­Topix and our other rel­e­vant apps inte­grate with both your device Con­tacts app and Cal­en­dar app seam­lessly, as follows.

      Con­tacts are uti­lized as needed. For exam­ple, if you cre­ate a per­son in Life­Topix, and wish to asso­ciate their con­tacts info, the app allows you to pick the con­tact you want. Sim­i­larly, you can select a Task Owner as a per­son from your con­tacts, and a per­son object is auto­mat­i­cally cre­ated in the app. We do not dupli­cate the con­tact info into the app as it’s already in your Con­tacts app. We are mak­ing enhance­ments to the Peo­ple + Ser­vices topic to add a lot more cus­tom info for people.

      All your device cal­en­dar items are auto­mat­i­cally included to be shown in the My Cal­en­dar and Agenda views, as well as in the Events topic views. You can use the fil­ter in those views to exclude cer­tain device cal­en­dars if you wish. Also, in Life­Topix, under Set­tings -> My Set­tings, you can select which device cal­en­dar you wish Life­Topix to write to (cre­ate shadow items for things like tasks, trips, etc,) — you can con­fig­ure reminder behav­ior by type in the My Set­tings view. Addi­tion­ally, you can directly add device reminder items from Life­Topix using the Quick Add option from the Quick Menu on the bot­tom left of dash­board views as well as other views, such as My Cal­en­dar, Agenda, etc.
      Please let us know if you need any­thing else!

    Hi,

    I have a fan­tas­tic app for track­ing expen­di­ture called track­myspend. I can sim­ply and very quickly enter what I spend, and clar­ify whether it is a need or a want.
    I was hop­ing part of the track­ing expen­di­ture fea­ture on this app could replace my track­myspend app. On that aop i can view my total expen­di­ture at almost all times, com­pare what was needs and wants and view in time periods/categories, and add favourites for speed.

    On this app, Life­Topix, while I can record what I spend .… And it has some time struc­ture and has cat­e­gories, the actual expense doesn’t even show up on the cal­en­dar with­out hav­ing to click on the item! Ide­ally, my sug­ges­tions would be to add favourites or recur­ring fea­tures, a total expense fea­ture, needs and wants dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion and be able to view needs and wants com­par­isons within categories.

    How­ever I know this is a tall order.… So, more real­is­ti­cally, please, please record total expenses for time peri­ods (e.g, daily, weekly or monthly) and at least be able to see the actual expense amount in the calendar.

    Thank you,
    Sarah

        I also think this is a stel­lar idea. I’d love to know how much I spent on each day and then be able to go down a level and see what items were wants vs. needs. Bril­liant. Please try to incor­po­rate it. I’m sure it would be highly popular.

  17. Ralf Schönekerl
    Aug 07, 2013

    Hello all,
    I have a ques­tion related to the rep­e­ti­tion sched­ule, for a task for exam­ple. I’d like to repeat a task every day at 7 am, with­out an end date and with­out defin­ing occur­rences (I set those to 150 in the set­tings) and “Dynamic” as cre­ation type. The pre­view sched­ule shows me 150 entries (due to the occur­rences limit). Nev­er­the­less, only 12 tasks have been cre­ated. Since I defined this task 12 days ago, no fur­ther rep­e­ti­tion has been gen­er­ated.
    Is there a workaround?
    Thank you very much


    • Team LightArrow
      Aug 08, 2013

      Hi Ralf,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      Just to be clear for the next instance of a task to be cre­ated (when using Dynamic mode) the pre­vi­ous task’s sta­tus has to be set to either “Com­pleted” or “Can­celed”.
      Also in some views the view is not being refreshed after a task’s sta­tus is changed so you may need to back out of that view then go back in to see the newly cre­ated task.

      Would you mind ver­i­fy­ing if these pos­si­bil­i­ties are caus­ing your issue?

    Is there a pos­si­bil­ity that infor­ma­tion sub­mit­ted to the dif­fer­ent com­po­nents of life topix/my agenda will have an auto­matic save rather then man­u­ally sav­ing each time a func­tion is per­formed?

    Hi there. Really impressed with the new update. Is there a way that I can colour code dif­fer­ent tasks or events? So for exam­ple, if I set up a task to do with my team could I colour it green in the cal­en­dar and then if I set up a sec­ond task to do with the accounts colour it red in the cal­en­dar? I hope this is clear and look for­ward to hear­ing from you.

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      Cur­rently you can save online account infor­ma­tion by using book­marks in the app. Sim­ply cre­ate a book­mark to an online site then edit the book­mark to add account information.

      We are work­ing to enhance the app to allow stor­ing account infor­ma­tion for accounts that are not online based. We hope to have this improve­ment avail­able in an update in the near future.

    Hi, can I add pho­tos, videos to my cal­en­dar? Thanks


    • LightArrow
      May 16, 2013

      Hi Man­soor,
      One way to do what you have asked for, is to cre­ate a Note with a Date Tag (so it shows up in the My Cal­en­dar and Agenda views), and attach pho­tos, videos, voice notes, draw­ing etc. to the note. We cur­rently don;t have date tags asso­ci­ated with pho­tos — we do have time­stamps (when it was taken) and that makes it show up in the Recent view (if it is recent enough). We do plan to sup­port show­ing the media items (photo, video, audio and draw­ing, based on their update time­stamp) in the My Cal­en­dar view in our 7.0 later this month. It’ll be con­trol­lable via the fil­ter. Notes can already be shown as they allow a Date Tag field.

    Suggestion.…..it would be nice to be able to drag and drop tasks into other days and it would auto­mat­i­cally change the due date. Cur­rently, I can sort tasks with no due dates but it would be nice to drag and drop this into tomorrow’s sched­ule. Another exam­ple would be if I had a sched­uled task due today and I wanted to quickly push it off till tomor­row I could sim­ply drag and drop into tomorrow’s date on my agenda.

    iPad ques­tion? In the cal­en­dar monthly mode, the cal­en­dar grid on my iPad is quite small.

    Is there a way to drag or oth­er­wise reduce the size of the hourly dis­play for the day high­lighted.…. or, make the monthly cal­en­dar grid larger?

    Thanks,

    Joe

      Hi Joe,

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

      We have made progress in enhanc­ing the month view of the cal­en­dar to allow for dif­fer­ent sizes. We will include this enhance­ment to allow for a larger month view on the iPad in an update soon.

      We truly appre­ci­ate your feed­back and with the help of our engaged users, like your­self, we will con­tinue to improve LifeTopix.

    Just got this app and get­ting famil­iar with it. I’m won­der­ing if there’s a way to “assign” appoint­ments and such to dif­fer­ent fam­ily mem­bers in the cal­en­dar? I’ve been using Cozi where you can color coor­di­nate every­body and it makes it so much eas­ier to see who’s doing what. When I do it here, it seems to assume there’s only one per­son. I’d also love a “class” cat­e­gory for extra-curricular. thanks!

      Hi Amelie,

      Thank you for reach­ing out with your ques­tion. We do plan to add col­ors by type/tag/person etc. to items like appoint­ments, tasks, projects and so on. Cur­rently you can set the owner for a task, and in the Peo­ple + Ser­vices view you can see all items (tasks, events, etc.) asso­ci­ated with a per­son. We plan to add a task table view which groups tasks by owner, pri­or­ity, cat­e­gory, etc.
      Regard­ing the sec­ond ques­tion, you can go to Edu­ca­tion topic, and add a new Sub­ject cat­e­gory and call it “Extracur­ric­u­lar” which could con­tain “sub­jects” such as Soc­cer, Piano, etc.

    For the reminders it lists from the Reminders App, it doesn’t appro­pri­ately break out the reminders from each Reminders lists I’ve already cre­ated. Instead, it shows the default Reminder list. It would be great if it retained the list that I had assigned it to in the Reminders app. Oth­er­wise, it makes it impos­si­ble for me to organize.

      Hi Jacob,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us.

      Would you mind clar­i­fy­ing why you mean? Are you say­ing you want the reminders from the Reminder’s app to be grouped in Life­Topix by their lists in the Reminder App?
      We look for­ward to hear­ing from you and resolv­ing this issue.

        Yes, that’s what I mean exactly. For exam­ple, I keep a Reminders List (in Reminders app) that is titled some­thing like “Books to Read” or some­thing like that. So when I went to view this through Lifetopix…there wasn’t a way to dis­tin­guish what reminder was from what list.

        I don’t know if it’s even pos­si­ble. But…it would make my tran­si­tion into Life­topix a whole lot easier.

    This is a very good app. It’s great that my iOS reminders and cal­en­dar entries are syn­chro­nized with the app. How­ever, the iOS reminders/tasks ( that show up as ‘device reminders’ do not incre­ment the badge count in the ‘Home’ sec­tion. I would very much like to look at only one app for all my reminders and not look at the iOS reminders for device reminders. Would it be pos­si­ble to include an option ( maybe as a set­ting) to also add the device reminder count to the app badge count? Another great fea­ture would be to have mul­ti­ple alerts/notifications for reminders/tasks/events. The iOS calendar/reminders allow for only sin­gle noti­fi­ca­tion per item–> I really miss the ‘Snooze’ fea­ture in MS Out­look :)

      Hi Ninad,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your suggestions.

      We will include the badge count for the Reminders app when dis­play­ing the badge count for the Home sec­tion (when device reminders are set to be included in the Home sec­tion). This new fea­ture will be included in our 6.0.1 update which should be avail­able in a week or so. (Our Life­Topix 6.0 update was sub­mit­ted for approval last week and should be avail­able soon).

      We will be sup­port­ing “Reminder Sets” (sup­port for mul­ti­ple alerts/notifications) in a future update.

    I just got this app and thought I would start with some­thing sim­ple like a gro­cery list. I must be doing some­thing wrong because by my count it was at least seven clicks before I even got to enter­ing an item. And it was so con­fus­ing I didn’t really know what was going on. Maybe this is the price you pay for an app that does every­thing. Unless I get the hang of this soon, I’m going back to sep­a­rate apps that each do one thing sim­ply and well.

      Hi Jeff,
      The quick­est way to add a shop­ping item is to use the Quick Add but­ton acces­si­ble from the pop out menu. Also, you can add fre­quently used views and items to the Hot List for easy access. For exam­ple, if you go to the Shop­ping topic, and tap and hold on the All Shop­ping Items view, you can choose “Add to Hot List”. That way the shop­ping list is always one tap away.
      We are con­stantly try­ing to make the app eas­ier to use for sim­pel day to day tasks — with­out com­pro­mis­ing the power of hav­ing every­thing con­nected in one place.
      Thank you for reach­ing out with your hon­est feed­back!

    I love this app. I have an iphone but recently pur­chased an android tablet. Do you antic­i­pate cross-platform syn­choniza­tion when you release an Android ver­sion? Will the PC ver­sion be avail­able for Win­dows 7?

    Also, i have found a way to orga­nize and track most infor­ma­tion in the app. How­ever, I like to attend annual feati­vals, hol­i­day events, etc. i was won­der­ing if you had a solu­tion for track­ing such info. For exam­ple, they may occur in the same month or on the same hol­i­day every year — but the exact date changes. I would like to track and access may or spring fes­ti­vals, christ­mas light shows, etc. (I real­ize the app is already astound­ingly robust.)

      Hi Linda,
      Thanks for reach­ing out!
      Both Win­dows and Android are in our plans for this year.
      Our Occa­sion Reminders fea­ture han­dles reg­u­lar (same date, repeat yearly) events. We do not sup­port a way where the occasion’s date is vari­able. One sug­ges­tion that might work is to include a hol­i­day cal­en­dar on your device — Life­Topix shows all items from your device cal­en­dars in its Agenda, My Cal­en­dar as well as Events topic views.

    Like oth­ers, I am still learn­ing how to use this app effec­tively. I have a cou­ple of ques­tions on issues that i haven’t been able to fig­ure out:
    1. Is there a way to dou­ble tap or tap and hold on a spe­cific time in a cal­en­dar to Add an appt? It is a pain to go into the start and stop times for each appt.
    2. As a sug­ges­tion, an “all day” but­ton on appoint­ments would be very help­ful,
    3. Is there a more tra­di­tional view for the cal­en­dar that has apps listed under the day (such as the app that comes with the iPad?). This is help­ful instead of hav­ing to look at each day sep­a­rately when plan­ning appoint­ments.
    4. Is there a way under projects when typ­ing in quick tasks to keep the quick tasks bar up after hit­ting enter instead of hav­ing to keep tap­ping the auick task but­ton each time?
    5. Is there a way to add a task/project list to the home page? Not the to do lists, but the task list.

    Thanks,
    Dawn

      Hi Dawn,
      Thanks so much for reach­ing out!
      1. Not today — that’s a great fea­ture and we do plan to add that in the future.
      2. We are “all day” sup­port in the next update or the one after that. We do updates every 4–6 weeks.
      3. The Year view does list each item by day in the My Cal­en­dar. Also, things are listed by day in the Home What’s Next view.
      4. In the Task List view (the main one, or for a give project) we do sup­port leav­ing the task add entry open when you use the light­ning add and tap Save instead of Close.
      5. In 5.2 (tar­geted for mid-Jan) we are adding “Open Undated Items” to the Home view (tasks, shop­ping, and remein­ders) for easy access to those from the home view.
      We hope this helps!

      The best way to do this is by both of you using a shared cal­en­dar (for exam­ple a google cal­en­dar) from Life­Topix. In My Cal­en­dar, you can both include that cal­en­dar from the fil­ter, and also in Life­Topix set­tings, you can set that cal­en­dar as the default cal­en­dar for putting things on.

    Hello! Firstly, this is an amaz­ing app! So much func­tion­al­ity at my fin­ger­tips! I am still very new to it, so I’m Still learn­ing. I’ve been try­ing and try­ing to cre­ate a shop­ping list that is linked to a spe­cific store. The prob­lem is that I can’t just cre­ate a gro­cery list, add a bunch of items, and link the list to a seller. It appears I have to edit each prod­uct indi­vid­u­ally to reflect the store I want to buy it from. That’s really inef­fi­cient and time-consuming. Is there a way to cre­ate a list and link the entire thing to a seller, with the end result being the nearby store pops up on my map, and I can I click on it and access my shop­ping list. That would be very use­ful when out run­ning errands and you have mul­ti­ple places to visit and sev­eral things to get from each place.
    Again, lov­ing what you guys are doing with this app. Seems like you really care about your prod­uct and truly con­sider cus­tomer requests and con­struc­tive criticism.

      Nov 04, 2012

      Hi Kendra,
      Thank you for your kind words and your ques­tion!
      It is true that you have to set the seller per item — we’ll enhance it in the near future to set seller for mul­ti­ple items at a time. The good news is, once the seller is set for an item (let’s say you set Whole Foods as the seller for Organic Milk), the next time you add that item to a shop­ping list using the picker, it’ll remem­ber the seller. The other good news is, if you set the loca­tion for the seller, then our Near Me view (map and list) does show all the items from that seller when you are within a con­fig­urable dis­tance from the seller’s loca­tion.
      We look for­ward to mak­ing the app more seam­less over future updates with­out com­pro­mis­ing its power. Users like you con­stantly encour­age us to improve it, and we love that!

    2 huge things that I would love to see fixed please! I see a few oth­ers have men­tioned as well
    I trully dis­like the odome­ter wheel to select due date for a task.
    Might I STRONGLY sug­gest a mini cal­en­dar pops up that I can actu­ally see what “day” the 22nd falls on instead of count­ing on my fin­gers, lol, what day today is and I need it Thurs­day so there­fore 4 days from today is the 26th etc. does that make sense?
    It would be so much eas­ier to see the cal­en­dar pop up I tap the day I want to do that task and it auto pop­u­lates that date for each task.
    Do away with the wheel. Argggggggg.
    Also most of my tasks are NOT time of day tasks. They are mainly… I need to get these things done on this day, period.
    When I get to that day I want to be able to drag and move the order how I want to achieve those tasks dur­ing the day.
    Please remove the wheel selec­tor. Highly annoying.

    Hello. This is a great app, and I love how it orga­nizes infor­ma­tion where dif­fer­ent parts of my life meet. One thing that would make this app more help­ful than it already is is TASK FILTERING. I would love to be able to sort and view the tasks, espe­cially by sta­tus. Due dates stink because I never get to do every­thing when I say, and then I get stuck with a ton of over­due tasks, once again dif­fi­cult to fil­ter. Even if I could just fil­ter by sta­tus so that I could see all my started tasks, then my on hold tasks, an so on would be SOO SOO help­ful. I would also like to sug­gest to add “wait­ing for” as a sta­tus option… it’s good to know which tasks I’m wait­ing for some­one else’s response or action on some­thing. I hope this helps!!

    Please I need it’s Win­dow 7 Client for Uni­ver­sal Access.

    I recently down­loaded your app and really like the con­cept but am strug­gling with the imple­men­ta­tion. At the end of the day, I want a tool that is opti­mized for effi­ciency and you have a ways to go to achieve this. For exam­ple, while some peo­ple might use all of the avail­able func­tion­al­ity of your app, I sus­pect that a large major­ity only use two or three of the fea­tures, namely cal­en­dar, notes, and tasks. It would be great to have a screen that has been opti­mized to work with these key fea­tures. Fur­ther opti­miza­tion could be done on each of these. For exam­ple, notes just need to be cap­tured and cat­a­logued so make those two func­tions very easy and intu­itive to do. Tasks need to be cap­tured, pri­or­i­tized, and assigned a due date. So make these really easy to do. Fur­ther­more, the due date will likely be a day rather than day/hour/minute, and the due date will likely be in the next 30 days so so make it really easy to assign a day in the next 30 with­out hav­ing to go to the dial a date tool (one of my least favorite iOS widgets).

    @ Dev Life­Topix —  ” you guys shows a top level inno­va­tion But LAUNCH it’s WINDOW Client As soon as Pos­si­ble for Sur­vival and adaption.”

    Idea– for win­dow client , life­Topix can use a Data­base exported by Life­Topix app into window’s client. You can also choose like exported data­base will be able to use by any other cur­rently avail­able PIM or Out­look, Ever­note, etc…   

    For exam­ple

     if Life­Topix will able to export data­base in ” .exb ” for­mat then it can use in Ever­note as a alter­na­tive of Life­Topix win­dow client.

      Hi Nirb­hay,

      Thanks so much for reach­ing out with your great feed­back and suggestions!

      Our 5.0 update (get­ting wrapped up for early-August) takes a huge usabil­ity leap based on user feed­back, with a much bet­ter nav­i­ga­tion for all com­mon views and some new views that are topic inde­pen­dent. Usabil­ity is also enhanced in all the detail views. A much sim­pler, cleaner look and feel per­me­ates the whole app now. We won’t stop here, we’ll keep mak­ing the app eas­ier to under­stand and use, with­out sac­ri­fic­ing it’s pri­mary strength — power, depth and rich­ness across sev­eral inter-related top­ics. In 5.0, infor­ma­tion entry is get­ting more pow­er­ful (abil­ity cre­ate infor­ma­tion from device cal­en­dar items, and from emails) and sim­pler. We need to fur­ther improve the pri­or­i­ti­za­tion expe­ri­ence with future updates. The good news is, we do an update every 4–8 weeks, based on user feed­back and our own inno­va­tion, never stop­ping to improve the app.

      In our 5.1 update we plan to sup­port “day-only” items to not require or dis­play time. This is requested by many users, espe­cially for tasks, and we are com­ing up with a good way to do it.
      Regard­ing a Win­dows client — we have started the work but have not made enough progress to nail down a release date. We’ll keep you and other users that are request­ing it up to date on our progress.

      Our sin­cere thanks — users like you inspire us to do better.

        Thanks for the info (I assume you meant iphone for charts in the Health+Activity topic). I think hav­ing no land­scape sup­port — specif­i­cally land­scape key­board sup­port — prob­a­bly means I wouldn’t get max­i­mum use out of the app: given that all input has to be done on the iphone, I think a land­scape key­board is impor­tant. That said, it’s cheap at the moment so I might well give it a go any­way, in the hopes that you add sup­port in the future.

    Hi,

    I just down­loaded Life­Topix last night and am impressed with the inte­gra­tion between all of the poten­tial life areas one might to want to track or organize…it appears that it will be very usable/helpful.

    I am won­der­ing if there are any plans to incor­po­rate a values/principles based struc­ture within Life­Topix. For exam­ple, if I want to develop a vision/mission/values and have the Life­Topix fall hier­ar­chi­cally under goals that are asso­ci­ated with these per­sonal state­ments of what is impor­tant to me in life, would that be some­thing that Life­Topix is look­ing to do/make pos­si­ble in future versions?

    We can all become more orga­nized and more effi­cient and do more, I just want to do more of what is impor­tant to me, and be able to get the things done I have to get done — rather than just get more done. Hope this makes sense,

      Hi Eva,

      Thank you for reach­ing out with your sug­ges­tion! The clos­est thing we cur­rently have is Con­text Tags — if you set a con­text tag based on a goal (for exam­ple, Health, or Self Improve­ment), you can place all the rel­e­vant projects, trips, tasks, notes etc. within that con­text to view and exe­cute items from a par­tic­u­lar goal’s per­spec­tive. We also allow log items (think of them as mea­sure­ments or met­rics) in the mix as well.
      We do wish to make more improve­ments to make the goals more struc­tured as you sug­gest. We have some ideas on it and will do more analy­sis to make it both pow­er­ful and sim­ple to use.

      We really appre­ci­ate hear­ing from users like you — thanks so much!

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow

    This is not a major point, more of pre­sen­ta­tion. Just curious…why the change to the blue & white icon format.…the pre­vi­ous color scheme was a lot more attrac­tive and eas­ier on the eyes. Any chance of going back to that color scheme.
    Thus far very happy with the app and look­ing for­ward to your ongo­ing updates.

      Hi David,

      Thanks very much for your post.

      Prior to the change, we had a lot of feed­back from many users who really did not care for the pre­vi­ous color scheme and icons. Since we had to make a change to accom­mo­date the enhanced res­o­lu­tion of the iPad 3, we opted to go with some­thing a lit­tle less quaint.

      This change has con­firmed that we can­not please every­one. In a future release, we hope to move to a theme approach where we offer a cou­ple of options for the user to choose the back­ground color and bor­ders. We will also be mod­i­fy­ing the exist­ing icons to make them more visu­ally dif­fer­en­tiable. We do not have plans to go back to a multi-color approach because we have received feed­back from user inter­face design­ers that a multi-color approach is not advis­able from a usabil­ity and acces­si­bil­ity standpoint.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.

    Please, tell me how can I trans­fer a file from my PC to the iPAD using Life­topix.
    I tried to use the part ‘files shar­ing’ of the iTunes (Apps tab) , the file is copied to the list but it does not show up ind the data of Lifetopix.


    • LifeTopix Support
      Jan 26, 2012

      Hi Nick,

      One way you could do this would be via the Drop­box free online file service.

      First, place the file you want to trans­fer to your iPad into your Drop­box account. Next, cre­ate an online folder for Drop­box via Notes + Files > All Fold­ers > +.

      Once you have cre­ated the online folder in Drop­box, you can down­load that doc­u­ment into your Notes + Files > All Fold­ers > Local Files > My Documents.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.

    Can the tasks that are inte­grated with my out­look exchange be inte­grated or synced with this app?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Dec 29, 2011

      Hi Glenn,

      Since Out­look tasks can be sync’d to your device Cal­en­dar and Life­Topix has an option to “Include Device Cal­en­dar”, you are able to view your Out­look tasks in the Life­Topix My Calendar.

      We do plan to inte­grate with 3rd party apps for direct task inte­gra­tion. We do not have that work assigned to a spe­cific release yet, but based on cus­tomer requests so far, we will likely start with Google Tasks and hope to start that work soon.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.

    Can My Cal­en­dar inte­grate into Exchange calendar?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Nov 02, 2011

      Hi Brett,
      “My Cal­en­dar” includes the entries on the device cal­en­dar along with all Life­Topix date-oriented items in its List, Day and Month views. If the device cal­en­dar already includes entries from Exchange or other cal­en­dars, they are shown as well. Life­Topix does not sep­a­rately inte­grate with Exchange or other cal­en­dars.
      Hoep that helps. Best regards,

    Hi. I like to use the task list a lot. I am won­der­ing how to have tasks delete when done (at least delete from my task list, not per­ma­nently) I looked under set­tings and can’t seem to fig­ure it out.

    Thanks for your help!


    • LifeTopix Support
      Sep 21, 2011

      Hi Dun­can,
      Thanks for your ques­tion!
      In 3.0, we are adding an Active tab (in addi­tion to All, Undated, and Over­due tabs that are already there) in the Task List view. When a Task’s sta­tus is marked as Com­pleted, it will go away from the Active tab.
      3.0 is tar­geted for sub­mis­sion to the App Store next week.
      Also, in the exist­ing Task Cal­en­dar view, if you set the fil­ter to NO for “Include Inac­tive Items”, com­pleted and can­celed tasks do not show.

    Dear Team Lightarrow

    Thanks again. I shall look for­ward to your upgrade.

    I have cre­ated some assets under a cat­e­gory but, on reflec­tion, now think I should have cre­ated a sub-category for some items first. Can I cut/paste or move an item to another sub-category or do I need to recre­ate it again under the sub?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Sep 05, 2011

      Hi Rosina,
      No need to cut and paste — once you cre­ate the new cat­e­gory, you can go to the asset detail and tap on its cat­e­gory field, and change it to the new one you cre­ated.
      Best regards,

    Hi

    Thanks for your response. Under Key fea­tures of the Home + Assets topic you list:
    abil­ity to track all rel­e­vant aspects of your pos­ses­sions, includ­ing seller, pur­chase date, cost, cur­rent value, man­u­fac­turer, model num­ber, SKU, ser­ial num­ber or vehi­cle iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber (VIN), and ser­vice. To record books, I would like areas to insert infor­ma­tion such as author, year of pub­li­ca­tion, press, etc; for stamps: the coun­try, the year, denom­i­na­tion etc; for coins: what each side dis­plays, the mint, the year, metal, etc. Are these fields likely to be added please.

    For books, can you add


    • LifeTopix Support
      Sep 04, 2011

      Hi Rosina,
      We under­stand your need, and it is a good fea­ture to be able to add addi­tional attrib­utes by cat­e­gory of asset. We’ll exam­ine a way to do it that is broadly applic­a­ble (beyond spe­cific new fields you’ve men­tioned in your exam­ple). We’ll let you know what we come up with.

        I would also be inter­ested in hav­ing the abil­ity to add fields (attrib­uted) for a par­tic­u­lar cat­e­gory. For exam­ple, in Home + Assets I would like to have a record of my land­scap­ing — type of plant or shrub, loca­tion on the prop­erty, per­haps a photo, size, water­ing and prun­ing require­ments, etc. This is an impres­sive app, and you have suc­cess­fully com­bined track­ing of the most com­mon aspects of a person’s life. I’ve been look­ing for a good data­base tool for either the iMac or iPad, and believe this could be it, if it allows for some cus­tomiza­tion. Thank you.

          Hi Michele,
          Thank you for reach­ing out to us with the sug­ges­tion!
          We may have mis­un­der­stood you, but let us take a shot at explain­ing how some of what you have asked for can be accom­plished, and then cover what we do not do yet.
          In our Tasks + Projects topic, we have built in cat­e­gories for Indoor and Out­door projects. You could cre­ate a Project called Land­scap­ing (with a cat­e­gory of Out­door). A project allows for attach­ing files, notes, pho­tos, videos, voice notes, shop­ping items, ser­vices uti­lized etc. that are rel­e­vant to that project, in addi­tion to tasks, reminders, and appoint­ments within that project. The shop­ping items in Life­Topix refer to Prod­ucts, which can have their own notes, pho­tos, etc. (in order to jot down water­ing and prun­ing require­ments, size, etc.
          What we DON“T HAVE is loca­tions by shop­ping item — for exam­ple, you may have bought and planted six lemon trees. Since they all point to one prod­uct in Life­Topix, the notes are shared by all. There’s no way to give spe­cific instruc­tions as notes for each one. We also don’t have loca­tion for prod­ucts. Assets have loca­tions, but not prod­ucts. So, at a min­i­mum, we would need to sup­port pho­tos, notes and loca­tion by shop­ping item in order to accom­plish that por­tion. We have been want­ing to do that, hope­fully in an update in the near future.

          Please let us know what you think. And please sug­gest what else would ben­e­fit you and we can plan for that. We have been aggres­sively improv­ing the app with awe­some feed­back and sug­ges­tions from users like you!

    • LifeTopix Support
      Sep 04, 2011

      Hi Rosina,
      Thanks for your ques­tion! Under Home + Assets topic, you can cre­ate addi­tional Asset Cat­e­gories by tap­ping on the Add but­ton. For exam­ple, one called Books and one called Coins. Then you can tap on the newly cre­ated Books cat­e­gory and add your books, and go into your newly cre­ated Coins cat­e­gory and add the coins under those as asset items.
      Please let us know if you need addi­tional help.

    Do you have any info on the Mac app that you could divulge? How will it work with iCal? Data will sync across devices? Any plans to incor­po­rate things like Google sync?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Aug 30, 2011

      Hi Nikki,
      Some more info for you:
      The Mac app (in its first release) is pri­mar­ily designed to be a client to access/update Life­Topix data. It is not designed to be a stand­alone Life­Topix app, and requires Life­Topix run­ning on the device in order to func­tion. It con­nects to Life­Topix on the device using Bon­jour. Since it does not have any local Life­Topix data, there is noth­ing to sync with.
      Life­Topix already inte­grates with the device cal­en­dar, which in turn inte­grates with iCal (either via MobileMe/iCloud or iTunes sync), so we do not inte­grate directly with iCal.
      After the first release of the Mac app in Sep­tem­ber, we’ll con­tinue to evolve based on what our users require in terms of stand-alone behav­ior.
      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow

    Once an item has been checked in the shop­ping list, I do not see an easy way to remove it from list. I gen­er­ally keep a run­ning gro­cery list and don’t want to keep see­ing items I have already pur­chased still on the list. Please advise, thanks!


    • LifeTopix Support
      Aug 30, 2011

      Hi Kim,

      There are a cou­ple of ways you can remove an item from a shop­ping list.

      The quick­est way is via swipe-delete. While view­ing the shop­ping list, swipe-left or swipe-right the item you wish to delete, then tap the red Delete that will appear. This swipe-delete ges­ture is sup­ported for all lists in Life­Topix, by the way.

      The other way is via the prod­uct picker. While view­ing the shop­ping list, tap on the +/- icon in the right-hand side of the title bar. On the result­ing prod­uct picker, all items on the list will be selected. Tap the item you wish to delete so that it becomes uns­e­lected, then tap Save in the right-hand side of the title bar.

      Best regards,

    I need to track doc­tor appts, meds, and var­i­ous tasks for fam­ily mem­bers. Is there a way I can set up a cat­e­gory for each per­son with each person’s provider, appts, tasks, etc? If not, is there some­thing in the works to make this possible?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Aug 10, 2011

      Hi Debra,
      We are con­sid­er­ing mak­ing improve­ments to implic­itly sup­port health-related track­ing by fam­ily mem­bers. With the way it works today, you can accom­plish some of it as fol­lows. For exam­ple, if you wanted to keep track of both your and another fam­ily member’s blood pres­sure, the eas­i­est thing to do would be to use the exist­ing blood pres­sure log to track yours, and cre­ate a new log for his blood pres­sure, which you could name “Bob’s blood pres­sure” (if his name were Bob, of course :-) ).

      To cre­ate a new log, you would do the fol­low­ing from the Life­Topix home view:

      1) tap Health + Lifestyle
      2) tap Health Stats Log
      3) tap the + in the upper right of the Health Stats Log view
      4) enter the appro­pri­ate name, units, and dis­play as infor­ma­tion and tap Save

      You can do the same for med­ica­tion logs as well.
