    Just saw that you are also work­ing on “Pro Con­tacts” any word on when that will be ready.

    I am about to pur­chase Daylite 4 but am hav­ing very frus­trat­ing synch­ing issues.

      Ed,

      The CRM fea­tures avail­able in Life­Topix 8.0 (and My.Agenda 3.0) in a few days, via the “Pro Con­tacts Pack” in-app pur­chase, will also be pack­aged into a sep­a­rate app called Pro.Contacts to be released soon. Users who already have Life­Topix or My.Agenda will not need to buy that stand­alone app — they’d be bet­ter off get­ting the in-app-purchase as they’ll be able to do more in one app.
      CRM (Social/Mobile) and Big Data (Social/Personal) are HUGE parts of our plans for every­thing we do mov­ing for­ward. Our plan is to always make the new func­tion­al­ity intro­duced with new stand­alone apps to be always also avail­able also as an in-app pur­chased mod­ule in Life­Topix and My.Agenda.

      Some excit­ing stuff com­ing soon, and over the rest of the year! And like always, we’ll keep improv­ing things with user feedback.

      Hi Betty,

      We apol­o­gize for the con­fu­sion and are more than happy to set up a phone call with you to walk you through the prod­uct if you wish.
      In our 8.0 update, which is ready for App Store approval (Apple typ­i­cally takes 3 to 7 days to approve our app but we have added some pow­er­ful fea­tures which require new encryp­tion and so the approval process may take a bit longer this time), we have dra­mat­i­cally improved the help included in the prod­uct as well as our online help. With the 8.0 update each screen has a help icon that pro­vides con­text help.

      If you would like a phone call please email us at “www.lightarrow.com” and pro­vide us with a date and time that works best for you as well as a phone num­ber that we can con­tact you at.

      We are ded­i­cated to help­ing our cus­tomers get the most out of our app so please do not hes­i­tate to reach out to us with any ques­tions you may have. We are extremely happy to help.

      Here is a link to sneak peak of the 8.0 update: http://lightarrow.com/sneak-peek-8–0

    Hi, I’m a new user–still in the learn­ing curve, but from what I have used it is very help­ful and I love it! I was won­der­ing if there were any plans to add a menu fea­ture to go along with the gro­cery list? Sure would be helpful!

        Thanks for your response. As a busy mom, I love the gro­cery list app-it’s handy to add things to as we run out. I use another app to plan our weekly din­ner menu–then have to switch back and forth in between Life­topix and that app to add the weekly gro­cery list. It would be handy to add it all in one app. Does that make sense?

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      We apol­o­gize for the delay in an Android ver­sion but iOS 7 related issues and other items took up some of our time, and also we have been focus­ing a lot on some sig­nif­i­cant new fea­tures for a major release in November.

    I think the app sounds great but I wish you offered a lite ver­sion for free so that I could make sure it has the views and capa­bil­i­ties that I need/want before I spend money on it. Some lite ver­sions of apps give you full access to all the fea­tures but limit the num­ber of tasks/events you are able to enter (like 10) before you have to upgrade to the paid ver­sion, per­haps you could offer some­thing like this. I was really inter­ested in the app but am not will­ing to pur­chase an app “in hopes” that its what I’ve been look­ing for. While I think the app is very rea­son­ably priced, if it doesn’t pro­vide what I’m look­ing for then I’ve just thrown away money that I could have spent on my kids. I know you have the my.agenda as an intro type app but it still requires that you pay for it before you know it does what you want, and even a dol­lar an app adds up fast if you have to buy sev­eral before find­ing the one that meets your needs.

      Hi Crys­tal,

      Thanks for reach­ing out!
      We have had this request from other users as well from time to time. We’d like to offer this, but most of our efforts go into improv­ing the app with cus­tomer feedback.

      As you’ve pointed out, we are very rea­son­ably priced for what we do, and unlike the more expen­sive apps that require you to buy a sep­a­rate ver­sion for the iPad and the iPhone, a sin­gle pur­chase of our app works on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

      It’s come a long way and we are very excited about what all we have com­ing in the future with our fre­quent updates.

      Please feel free to reach out to us at sup­port @ lightar­row . com (with­out the spaces) and per­haps we can set some­thing up if you wish to dig deeper.

      Best regards,

        Hi Crys­tal,

        I like you wanted to try before I bought but bit the bul­let and I can hon­estly say this was the best money I’ve ever spent on an App! Not only has this pro­vided more than I need (still learn­ing how to inte­grate other areas) but it has allowed me to save pur­chas­ing “to do” apps, and other “orga­ni­za­tional” apps.

        Also, I had a issue and posted a ques­tion and was responded to within min­utes. I tried the sug­ges­tions and it didn’t work so I let them know and was offered time at my con­ve­nience to hop on the phone and try to work through it. So on a Sat­ur­day morn­ing I spent about 1.5 hours with the devel­op­ment team (one mem­ber). The 1.5 hours was assis­tance with my issue as well as him tak­ing the time and hav­ing the patience to answer other ques­tions I had. I’ve posted ques­tions before BUT NEVER have received sup­port like that.

        So as some­one who took a chance on “buy and try” I have to tell you I’d pay 10x what they are charg­ing based on every­thing I can do with this app and the sup­port I’ve received. Due to this app (been using for almost 2 months now) I’ve removed 4 other cal­en­dar apps, 2 todo lite apps, and buried the default cal­en­dar, reminder, and other fam­ily apps in a “rarely used” folder now on the back screen of my iPhone and iPad.

        Thanks,
        Paul

    I have My.Agenda. Do I need to pur­chase one of your “Add-On” to the basic app to have my con­tact list, which resides on Con­tact­sXL on my iPad cur­rently, and have and main­tain my con­tacts on My. Agenda, OR, should I have pur­chased Life­Topix in the first place.

      Jul 07, 2013

      Hi Joe,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      My.Agenda out of the box sup­ports light access to your con­tacts to allow you to assign own­ers to tasks. If you wish to have com­plete access to peo­ple in My.Agenda you will have to pur­chase the “Peo­ple + Ser­vices” pack (cur­rently 99 cents).

      My.Agenda is a starter ver­sion of Life­Topix. My.Agenda allows you to start small, and add what you want. You can achieve the full func­tion­al­ity that is avail­able in Life­Topix by pur­chas­ing the “Every­thing Pack” (which enables all fea­tures includ­ing the Peo­ple + Ser­vices topic). Today the cost of Life­Topix is equiv­a­lent to the cost of My.Agenda plus the cost of the “Every­thing Pack”.

    Hi — I use dif­fer­ent cal­en­dars to sep­a­rate fam­ily tasks/events/appointments, etc… from work. If I put an event/appointment/task on the “fam­ily” cal­en­dar on my iPhone, it syncs with Google cal­en­dar through Exchange and down­loads to my wife’s iPhone so that our fam­ily is in sync. If I sched­ule a work event/appointment/task, it does not sync with Google cal­en­dar since my wife doesn’t care about my work tasks, etc… Is there an easy way to assign a cal­en­dar as I am cre­at­ing the event/appointment/task ? I know I can assign a default cal­en­dar at the sys­tem level, but this work around is too cum­ber­some, as I use 8 dif­fer­ent cal­en­dars. I think this app has a ton of poten­tial and I would love to use it, but this one cal­en­dar issue is pre­vent­ing me from using this app.

    Awe­some to see the app com­ing along so well! Also, from read­ing these com­ments there are many more good things in store (i like the PC access data entry idea!). My feed­back was to encour­age you to cre­ate a month view in the cal­en­dar that is more ‘out­look’ in appear­ance or gasp, dare I say it — like the pi pro one wherein I can see the months busy days and qui­eter days at a glance and add a task or event to a spe­cific day from that month view.

We can­not rec­om­mend the cur­rent iCloud Sync due to the issues affect­ing mul­ti­ple apps. For now, please use our Drop­box backup/restore approach to keep the same data on devices, and it’ll be resolved with 6.0.

    Hello… I am finally get­ting the hang of using Life­topix, and I love it! The only issue I am hav­ing now regards the con­tacts. Is there a place I can click on to show all of my con­tacts in one place within the Life­topix app just like I can with book­marks? I don’t like the ipad’s native con­tact app and I try to avoid it. It would be great if I could access addresses and phone num­bers (con­tacts) in the far left col­umn. Is there another place within the app and I am just miss­ing it? If this is some­thing I need to set up within a cat­e­gory, how would I go about it? Thank you for your patience with me while I am learn­ing how to use Life­topix :)

      Hi Alyix,

      Thank you for for reach­ing out to us with your ques­tion. We are always glad to help.

      You can view all the peo­ple (con­tacts) in Life­Topix by going to the “Peo­ple + Ser­vices” topic then tap­ping on “Peo­ple in Life­Topix”.
      This view is the list of peo­ple you have added to Life­Topix. When you add a per­son you have the option of assign­ing a device con­tact to that user. When you do assign a device con­tact to a Life­Topix per­son the contact’s infor­ma­tion (e.g. phone, email) are pre­sented with the per­son details.

      You can also view a list of peo­ple by tap­ing on the arrow icon at the bot­tom left of the dash­board screen (main screen) then tap on the search by type icon (eye icon). Choose the type per­son by tap­ping on “Per­son”. You will see the list of peo­ple in Life­Topix. You can tap the green down arrow icon to the right of the per­son to view some action you can make on the per­son. For exam­ple, you could call the per­son or email them.

      Hi Maria,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      To delete an event or an appoint­ment sim­ply tap on the event or appoint­ment to open its detail view. From the detail view you can delete the item by tap­ping the delete but­ton (trash icon) located towards the bot­tom right. You can also typ­i­cally delete an item by swip­ing to delete from most views.

      Cur­rently Life­Topix does not sup­port color cod­ing of appoint­ments how­ever we plan to add type and sta­tus, etc to appoint­ments which would allow for color cod­ing by type in the future.

    Hi,

    i’ve been look­ing for a “seam­less” and “inter­grated” apps to man­age my life and life topix is the answer. It would be THE apps if:

    1. Flex­i­bil­ity — user can add link between the topix freely. Eg, i want to link my shop­ping list to my expenses, where the “bought” items price are updated in the expenses in finance topix(doesn’t it make per­fect sense — shop­ping cost money?), and also to task (it is a task to do shop­ping), where i can add a task to do shop­ping then add the list straight away… or, adding a shop­ping list from my home/kitchen inven­tory, then it is updated as a task to be done.

    2. Shop­ping topix (the one i used most now) — it would be great if it has an “archive” fea­ture. For exam­ple, i add an apple to my shop­ping list, once i bought it, it will record that i have bought an apple today. then say next week i need to buy an apple, i add it again to my shop­ping list. at the end of the month i could retrieve the data and see how many apples i have bought for the month/ for the week or bet­ter, i can also see how much i have incurred for the month to buy apples. it would be awe­some if i can analyse this info from the expenses topix too, with­out hav­ing to enter the infor­ma­tion sep­a­rately from finance topix.

    3. mommy friendly — mommy = meals. life topix would be per­fect if i can use it to plan the fam­ily meal as well. Cur­rently i’m using “meal­board” apps to do that. i’m hop­ing either life topix would allow me to import the gro­cery list gen­er­ated from meal­board or have some­thing quite sim­i­lar to that (func­tion: store recipe, plan meal, gen­er­ate shop­ping list from the recipe and meal planned) in life topix itself. link this to the nutri­tion log/shopping and expenses then it will be splen­did. An import recipe func­tion from web­sites would make it great. again, i would love it if i could retrieve infor­ma­tion of what was served for the week/ month/day. it would be a dream come true if the data are then inter­grated with inventory/shopping/expenses. Eg. i bought 2 apples (update expense and inven­tory), used an apple for today’s meal (update inventory/nutrition log). then, from my meal plan i need another 3 apples for this week meal, (retrieve data from my inven­tory that i have another apple left, update my shop­ping list that i need to buy 2 more apples, retrieve data of the last pur­chased apple cost, gen­er­ate a shop­ping budget).

    4. Fam­ily friendly — i hope in future, i can add fam­ily mem­ber to my life topix. Eg under edu­ca­tion, include in my daugh­ter class sched­ule, update thier medication/ immunization/vaccination under health and fit­ness, sched­ule her pead appoint­ment. and after all that, gen­er­ate a view from cal­en­dar to see the activ­i­ties of all fam­ily mem­ber (color coded)/ any 1 sin­gle fam­ily mem­ber. so that from 1 view i can see what every­one else is doing and it would be much eas­ier to plan activ­i­ties to fit everyone’s sched­ule. of course it would be super use­ful if i can share all this infor­ma­tion with my fam­ily mem­ber. a “shared account” would be use­ful too, where fam­ily mem­bers can add in thier to do/ task/ appoint­ment from their own device and the “fam­ily account” is updated.

    5. Recur­ring entry — house chores are repet­i­tive. cur­rently life topix only allow 12 rep­e­ti­tion. I need more. Some tasks need to be per­formed weekly/daily/alternate days. And,of course task and chores would need to be assigned to some­one — a reminder to that par­tic­u­lar fam­ily mem­ber assigned to the task would be great too.

    6. Last but not least — teach Siri to use this apps.

    Thanks.

      Hi yati83,
      Thanks so much for the these thought­ful sug­ges­tions and the kind words!
      We’d love to make Life­Topix the app of choice for our users, and you’ll be glad to know that some of the items are already in progress in R&D! We hope to deliver fea­tures that accom­plish some of these things over the next few updates. As as make progress, we might reach out to you to run our approach by you, espe­cially fam­ily friendly aspects.
      Best regards,

      I am also seek­ing to use this app as my home man­age­ment app (mommy duties). I have recently decided to cre­ate a project for each fam­ily mem­ber and add items spe­cific to them to it such as notes, appts, shop­ping items, tasks, etc. It is a way of pulling together activ­i­ties related to each per­son. So far so good. Another idea is to set a con­text for each fam­ily member—that option allows for asso­ci­a­tion of more than one fam­ily mem­ber to an item.

      Sug­ges­tion for LT: Smart Groups — Allow a search by a spe­cific cri­te­ria to be saved as a folder. Every­thing I enter with the spe­cific cri­te­ria (i.e. con­text of Honey Do) would show up in that folder whether it be an appt, event, shop­ping, etc.

        Thanks again, Betty, for a great sug­ges­tion! We have been con­sid­er­ing fold­ers as a way of group­ing a mixed bag of related items. We are work­ing on a way to do that by build­ing on top of con­texts and cat­e­gories.

    Hello Life­Topix Team,

    As with other users, I am very much a list per­son and very struc­tured with tasks, cal­en­dars, notes, etc. I have been using per­sonal orga­niz­ers since the Sharp Wiz­ard if you remem­ber that one! I have down­loaded, used, and tested many of the pop­u­lar GTD apps avail­able. I must say that with Life­Topix you are on the best track I have seen!! Here are some questions/suggestions: (1) Please make an actual PC & Mac appli­ca­tion beyond airac­cess that does not require an active con­nec­tion to the iPad/iPhone or .… per­haps just make a web tool much like Too­dleDo .… I would sub­scribe and pay for sure! (2) I do not see a week view under My Cal­en­dar — that would be help­ful. (3) Need a way of pick­ing a day/date for a task with­out assign­ing a time. (4) The sync with Too­dledo and Ever­note should be com­pletely auto­matic with­out any user inter­ven­tion. Hope this is help­ful. I will post more later .…. I am look­ing for­ward to new updates with GREAT ANTICIPATION .… Fan­tas­tic App !!!!!!

      Hi Don,
      Thanks for the very encour­ag­ing words, and for the great sug­ges­tions! We thrive on fea­ture rec­om­men­da­tions from savvy users like you. We have already begun the tech­ni­cal work for a full-fledged app on the Mac and Win­dows, but have not made enough progress for a tar­get time­frame. The fea­tures you’ve sug­gested for Life­Topix itself are amongst things we hope to deliver these in some form or another in the next few updates after we deliver 5.0 within a few days.
      Again, thanks so much!
      Best regards,

    Hi folks, I just have to say how impressed I am with with this app and its ongo­ing devel­op­ment. I am a list/organization junkie. I’ve tried app after app and this one seems to be clos­est to per­fec­tion for me. The weekly view and plans for PC “Airac­cess” you have com­ing up will make it even better!

    LOL I should prob­a­bly make a check­list of ques­tions I have for you folks, but one item stands out that might be a nice addtion, if it isn’t pos­si­ble already. Is there any way to set a reminder for a task? I see that I can do this for projects, but I have lots of tasks that are time spe­cific and if I don’t have my phone beep­ing at me, I often for­get to do them in a timely manner.

    I am on the edge of my seat wait­ing for your next update as it seems you just keep mak­ing this app bet­ter and bet­ter! Being able to import Too­dledo and Ever­note is outstanding.

    Keep up the good work LightAr­row, it is VERY much appreciated!

    Linda

      Thanks, Linda!
      Adding reminders to tasks is some­thing we’ve been asked for from other users as well, and we plan to sup­port it in 5.1 (5.0 is due out in a cou­ple of weeks), some­time by mid-September. 5.0 is a fairly sig­nif­i­cant release and we are wrap­ping it up — we plan to share a sneak peek in the next cou­ple of days or so with our users.
      We con­tinue to be inspired by users like you!

    Any update for an Android ver­sion yet? The last query about Android was over 2 1/2 months ago on 6 March. Any word on progress being made would be much appre­ci­ated!

      Hi Forex­J­eff,
      Thank you for the fol­low up! Since our last update we have started the tech­ni­cal work, but because of the sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence in tech­nolo­gies, we are not in a posi­tion to have a tar­get date yet. At this point we are tar­get­ing Android 2.3.x (Gin­ger­bread) as the plat­form and we hope to have more news by this sum­mer.

          Jul 02, 2012

          Hi Tina,
          Our work on Android has been slower than we had hoped, as recently almost all of our efforts have been for our 5.0 release which has an excit­ing new inter­face, expected to be avail­able later this month. Our Android will be based on the same inter­face, so we have delayed resump­tion on Android that work until 5.0 is solid.

      Hi Alli­son,

      Thanks so much for the shout out about Ever­note — that’s been get­ting a very enthu­si­as­tic recep­tion from a lot of our users. :-)

      As for Too­dledo sup­port, as you may have noticed on our roadmap, our next release will con­tain fur­ther 3rd party inte­gra­tion, espe­cially in the tasks area. Too­dledo is one of those we are inves­ti­gat­ing. Please stay tuned to our roadmap for fur­ther devel­op­ments as our inves­ti­ga­tion and devel­op­ment work progresses.

      Best regards,

    • LifeTopix Support

      Hi Philip,
      Thanks for the ques­tion and kind words. We agree! Ever­note (we are big fans) inte­gra­tion is in test­ing in our 4.0 release, due out in a week or two. Too­dledo (and Google Tasks) is also planned for a release soon there­after. Inte­gra­tions to pop­u­lar online ser­vices across the top­ics we address are a key part of our app strat­egy.

    Hi! Can we mod­ify the 12 life topix? Can we add to the 12?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Dec 13, 2011

      Hi Verch,

      It depends on what you mean by “mod­ify”. Our 3.0 release in Octo­ber deliv­ered the cur­rent dash­board func­tion­al­ity. You can cus­tomize the dash­board to hide top­ics that you do not wish to see. To do this, tap on the wrench icon in the upper right of the Life­Topix topic panel.

      As far as being able to add to the 12 top­ics, we do not cur­rently sup­port this func­tion­al­ity. How­ever, we are intrigued by this ques­tion. Please con­tact us directly via our sup­port link — we would like to estab­lish a more inter­ac­tive dia­log with you on this idea so we can learn more about your thoughts and requirements.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.

    Hello,

    Looks great so far. I’m all Mac at home yet all PC/Microsoft at work. Is there any­way to sync with Microsoft Out­look Tasks? In fact I use Office for Mac at home as well. I know many folks that use Office in the office yet have iPhones & IPads and can­not sync their Tasks. Thanks for your direction.

    Have been look­ing for some­thing like this. Thanks. Hope it works like I think it would.
    Do I need to pay twice? Sure hope not.
    Paid for the app on iPad2. Down­load and cre­ated a few itms in Life­Topix. Setup online folder with Drop­box. When I go to iPhone4, could not see any­thing in the Drop­box.
    What do I need to do?


    • LifeTopix Support
      Sep 02, 2011

      Hi Amy,
      Thanks for your ques­tion. You are cor­rect, one pur­chase allows it to be installed on your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. When you get it from the app store logged in as the same user from the other devices, the app store does not charge you again.
      We cur­rently have a “non-ideal” way of keep­ing Life­Topix data in sync on the iPad and iPhone: http://lightarrow.com/lifetopix/common-questions/q-how-can-i-sync-lifetopix-data-across-my-iphone-and-ipad
      We are work­ing on mak­ing it more seam­less (we plan to take advan­tage of iCloud after it is pub­licly avail­able, as well as do direct sync­ing between devices using Apple’s Bon­jour tech­nol­ogy). We’ll share more on this on over time at: http://lightarrow.com/lifetopix/roadmap
      We look for­ward to mak­ing Life­Topix your most use­ful and favorite app with feed­back from users like you. We are truly excited about what we have ven­tured to do with the app! Thanks so much for your sup­port.

      Hi Steve,
      Thanks for your ques­tion! We are work­ing on a Mac client for Life­Topix, tar­geted for release in Sep­tem­ber. The Mac client can access Life­Topix on the iPad/iPhone/iPod touch for view­ing, edit­ing and adding data. In other words, with Life­Topix run­ning on your “iDe­vice”, you can access its data via a Mac (includ­ing Mac­Book Air) for eas­ier data entry and update. We are very excited about this as many of our users have requested for this fea­ture. We hope this helps with what you are look­ing for.

      Hi Mag­nus,
      Access to the Life­Topix app itself can be con­fig­ured to be con­trolled via a pass­code set­ting: this is cov­ered in Set­tings and Get­ting Started sec­tions of Online Help. You can search for pass­code on our web­site to see these pages directly.
      Also, we hide sen­si­tive data, specif­i­cally online access pass­words stored in book­marks with a PIN. You can use PIN to search for that on our web­site.
      We hope that answers your ques­tions.

      Hi Kim,

      Thanks for your ques­tion. We have indeed thought about cre­at­ing an Android ver­sion down the road, but we don’t have an esti­mated time­frame for that yet. As you know, both the mar­ket­place and the under­ly­ing tech­nol­ogy for Android apps are quite dif­fer­ent from Apple’s App Store and under­ly­ing tech­nol­ogy. There­fore, we have to sort through all that, all while main­tain­ing the very fast pace we have been on for all the fea­tures we have been devel­op­ing (and have planned!) for the product.

      For sure, we will announce those plans with great fan­fare on our roadmap once we do reach the point where we have nailed down a timeframe.
