Q. Can I get LifeTopix data on other devices/calendars?

Many of our cus­tomers sync their Out­look data with their iPad cal­en­dar. They do this via iTunes.

Once your Out­look cal­en­dar data is in your iPad cal­en­dar, then Life­Topix will allow you to see this infor­ma­tion in the Life­Topix “My Cal­en­dar” as long as you have the “Include Device Cal­en­dar” fil­ter option set to YES.

If you sync your iPad cal­en­dar with Out­look via iTunes, and then sync your Black­berry with Out­look, then Life­Topix cre­ated items would trans­fer to those other cal­en­dars as well.

We do not cur­rently have any plans to directly sync Life­Topix date-relevant items with any­thing other than the cal­en­dar on the device (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch), because from that point on, our users typ­i­cally have their own pre­ferred way of get­ting the device cal­en­dar into a Mac, PC, etc.

      Hi Steve,
      Thanks for reach­ing out to us.
      Our apps show the items from the iOS Cal­en­dar, Con­tacts, and Reminders apps — and those items are auto­mat­i­cally synced via iCloud between iOS devices and the Mac (out­side of our app).
      If you are talk­ing about Per­son and Appoint­ment objects cre­ated in our app, those only sync between our app on iOS devices, not Mac. On the Mac, we have a free app called Life­Topix AirAc­cess, which lets you remotely access the data in our app (lim­ited to cer­tain types of data only), and it’s pri­mary goal is to use the Mac for eas­ier data entry into our app. When you run AirAc­cess on the Mac, and your Mac and iPhone/iPad are on the same LAN WiFi, and the app is up on your device, then AirAc­cess finds it and asks to con­nect to it so that you can see and add/edit its data.
      More info at: http://lightarrow.com/airaccess
      Please let us know if you need some­thing else — you can also email us at sup­port @ lightar­row . com (with­out the spaces) directly.

    Just the app I’ve been look­ing for. Thanks so much for devel­op­ing. I note when I first started Life­Topix, it took my task from my IOS 6 Reminders app. Great. I cur­rently use an iPhone, iPad and MacAir. Is there any­way for the pogram to put reminders/To-Do’s saved in Life­Topix BACK into Reminders in IOS 6? If there were, then my MacAir could sync them from either my iPad or iPhone reminders and I’d be able to have all my reminders avail­able to me no mat­ter which device I was using.

    Thanks in advance. LOVE LifeTopix

      Hi Doug,
      Thank you for the kind words and the ques­tion. Good news — we have inte­gra­tion (view, mark com­plete, cre­ate, delete) with the device Reminders app in our 5.1 update com­ing later this month, both from our My Cal­en­dar view as well as the Home (What’s Next) view.

    I hace a iPad and BB curve, Google cal­en­dar. I want to sinchron­ice them with Life Topix. Can I do it? Can you send me a rec­om­men­da­tion?
    Thank you in advance

      Hi Ser­gio,
      Thanks for the ques­tion. Life­Topix allows you to view the items from the cal­en­dars enabled on your iPad Cal­en­dar app. So if you cre­ate enable the google cal­en­dar account on your iPad’s Set­tings under “Mail, Con­tacts, Cal­en­dars”, then the items fromt hat cal­en­dar will be vis­i­ble in Life­Topix as well. Life­Topix has a fil­ter set­ting in My Cal­en­dar where you can select which device cal­en­dars you wish to include or exclude. Under Life­Topix Set­tings > My Set­tings, you can also select which device cal­en­dar you wish to be your default for Life­Topix to cre­ate items in.
      We hope that helps.
      Best regards,

      Thanks for you answer. I could make the syn­chro with BB, Google cal­en­dar and Life­topix. It was work­ing very well before the last life­topix update, because the syn­chro issues began after update. I selected in my set­tings the proper cal­en­dar that is Google cal­en­dar and it is not work­ing. Life­topix was not send­ing any infor­ma­tion to Google cal­en­dar. Could you send the solu­tion for this issue? Thank you in advance.

        Hi Ser­gio,
        There is a cal­en­dar inte­gra­tion issue with Life­Topix 5.0.3 on iOS 6. We have already fixed it and sub­mit­ted 5.0.4 to Apple for review. We expect it to be avail­able to our users in the next few days.

    I can add my office vis­its to my doc­tors and it gets on my calan­der fine with alerts. I can then go my calan­der and add a note for that visit. What I want to do is go to the provider in Life­topic and be able to see my past vis­its and the notes attached to that visit. Can you sug­gest the best way to do this. I want to use this app to the fullest but it seem I just keep enter­ing new items and I am not get­ting results I want. I seem to be adding new sub­cat­e­gories for every visit which does not seem right. Any help is appre­ci­ated. Thanks

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks very much for your question.

      One way we might rec­om­mend that you do that would be to asso­ciate every­thing with the ser­vice provider. Here is an exam­ple of how you might do that for your annual phys­i­cal with your fam­ily doctor:

      1. from the Life­Topix home view, tap Peo­ple + Ser­vices, then tap Ser­vice Providers
      2. cre­ate the ser­vice provider for your fam­ily doc­tor. There are mul­ti­ple ways you can do this. If you want your fam­ily doc­tor to reside in the “Doc­tor” ser­vice provider cat­e­gory, then you , you would scroll down and tap Health­care, then scroll down and tap Doc­tor, then tap +. Pro­vide your doctor’s infor­ma­tion (their name in the Title field, con­tact infor­ma­tion, etc.), then tap Save.

      Once your ser­vice provider has been cre­ated, you would then go to that ser­vice provider item, scroll down, tap Appoint­ments, then tap + to cre­ate an appoint­ment for your next visit to that doc­tor. When you do this, the appoint­ment will get added to your Life­Topix My Cal­en­dar. In addi­tion, assum­ing you have not changed the default Life­Topix My Set­tings, a reminder will get cre­ated in your device Cal­en­dar as well.

      While you are at the doctor’s visit and want to cre­ate a note to record the infor­ma­tion you want to remem­ber from the visit, you would again go to that ser­vice provider item, scroll down, tap Notes, then tap + to cre­ate a new note. You can pro­vide any title you want for the note. By set­ting the Date Tag for the note to the date of the visit, you will be able to view all your notes sorted by date. If you don’t set the Date Tag, all your notes will appear in that view in the Undated sec­tion, arranged alpha­bet­i­cally by Title.

      We have found that dif­fer­ent peo­ple think about these things dif­fer­ently — some pre­fer­ring to arrange such vis­its by the ser­vice provider as we have described here, some pre­fer­ring instead to arrange such vis­its by the visit date, some pre­fer­ring to arrange such vis­its by the pur­pose of the visit, etc. There­fore, we have tried to build in the flex­i­bil­ity to accom­mo­date any type of model the user wishes to use.

      Please let us know if that does not answer your question.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.

    I have win­dows vista, win­dows live and black­berry curve. Would I be able to sync this soft­ware with these pro­grams?
    Thank you

      Hi Kathy,
      Thanks for your ques­tion!
      We don’t have a ver­sion of Life­Topix for the Black­berry or the PC. How­ever, Life­Topix cre­ated device cal­en­dar entries (on your iPhone or iPad) for date-relevant items in it, such as tasks, trips, projects etc. These fol­low­ing steps are inde­pen­dent of Life­Topix, but if you sync your device with iTunes on a PC, there is an option to sync your device cal­en­dar with Out­look. If you black­berry is synced with Out­look as well, the cal­en­dar entries should end up on the Black­berry as well.
