Notes + Files, Lists

Save time by mak­ing your notes, files and lists acces­si­ble with the Notes + Files topic.

One of the most pow­er­ful fea­tures of your mobile device is its abil­ity to keep you con­nected. Notes + Files, Lists lever­ages this con­nec­tiv­ity to give you unprece­dented mobile access to your elec­tronic infor­ma­tion no mat­ter where you are. With the dynamic note tak­ing capa­bil­i­ties, you can cre­ate text, audio, video, pho­tos or hand­writ­ten draw­ings and notes, which lets you gather notes and jour­nal entries any­where you go.

With the Notes + Files topic, cre­ate sin­gle use or reusable check­lists and to-do lists for items such as things to do daily or any­thing else you can pos­si­bly imag­ine through the impres­sive check­list and to-do list capa­bil­i­ties. If you are a user of Ever­note® or Too­dledo® notes, sync those hosted notes with your LightAr­row app notes. Or, cre­ate LightAr­row app notes directly in your LightAr­row app and view and edit them from those ser­vices. Access online files from Drop­box™, OneDrive™, Box™ and Google Drive™ and asso­ciate these files to topic items, such as projects, events and more. You can also save hosted doc­u­ments on your local device for safe­keep­ing so that you can access these files later when you are offline.

The Notes + Files, Lists topic inte­grates with other top­ics so you can, for exam­ple, access your elec­tronic resources from within the Edu­ca­tion or Travel + Places top­ics. The result is infor­ma­tion that is always available.

This topic is included in Life­Topix, Pro.Notes and My.Notes. It is offered as an in-app pur­chase in My.Agenda. Online notes + files are included as an in-app pur­chase in My.Notes. My.Shopping includes par­tial note func­tion­al­ity for the man­age­ment of coupons.

    Look­ing at maybe pur­chas­ing this app. Ques­tion: is there the abil­ity to add pho­tos to the cal­en­dar and or notes?

    Thank you.

      Hi Melissa,
      Thanks for reach­ing out!
      When a photo is taken in our app, you have the option of it being shown in our My Cal­en­dar view auto­mat­i­cally, at the time it was taken. Pho­tos can be added to notes as well, and the note itself also has an optional Date Tag field, which, when set, makes the note appear on the My Cal­en­dar view (and the Agenda view).
      Please let us know if you need any­thing else!

    My hus­band gets my alerts for cal­en­dards, etc. There are times (such as his birth­day, etc.) when I do not want him to see the event. Is there a way to set this app to be exclu­sive to my phone only… I do not nec­es­sar­ily need it to retrieve from other data if I use this app exclusively.

    Thanks!

      Hi Arlene,
      Thanks for reach­ing out!
      You can go to our app’s Set­tings view, and then into My Set­tings, to change the Default Device Cal­en­dar set­ting to one that is not shared between you two.
      Also, you can con­trol the cal­en­dar item cre­ation and reminder behav­ior by type (in the same view).
      In our next update (com­ing later this month), you can also con­trol the cal­en­dar by item.

    How do I asso­ciate an Ever­note note as a note for a Project in Lifetopix?


    • LifeTopix Support

      Hi Brian,

      To add an Ever­note note to a project in Life­Topix you need to have already signed in to your Ever­note account from “All Online Notes” accessed through the “Notes+Files” topic. Once you have signed in you can access your Ever­note notes. Each Ever­note Note can then be synced with Life­Topix by sim­ply tap­ping the sync icon (cloud with arrow com­ing down). This will cre­ate a Life­Topix note that is synced with the Ever­note note. You can now open the project you want to add the note to and tap on “Add Item” at the bot­tom of the project detail view. After tap­ping on the icon select “Choose Exist­ing” and then select “Note”. You should see the Life­Topix note that is synced with the Evern­note note. You can now add that note to the project.

      Best regards,
      Team LifeTopix

    Please con­sider allow­ing due dates / repeat­ing dates to be added to check­lists. If I want to cre­ate a check­list of tasks for deep clean­ing the bath­room and I plan to repeat this func­tion weekly, it would be nice to set this up as reoc­cur­ring instead of cre­at­ing a new check­list each time.

      Hi Berry,
      That’s a great sug­ges­tion. In 5.1 (tar­geted for the end of this month) we’ve added the abil­ity to add check­lists to the What’s Next view in Home (meant for ongo­ing check­lists like Morn­ing Rou­tine, Weekly Chores, etc.) — we’ve also added the abil­ity to clear them for eas­ier reuse. What you sug­gest is a good way to improve on that fur­ther. We look for­ward to doing that in the near future.
      Best regards.

    Can life­topix work for class man­age­ment? I travel with my ipad to see my stu­dents in work­place expe­ri­ences and won­der if this app will sup­port con­tacts, cal­en­dar, to do, reminders and notes that can be indi­vid­u­al­ized by stu­dent? I use this for every­thing and would like an app that does it all so I don’t have to travel between sev­eral apps…
    Does this sup­port hand­writ­ing and anno­tat­ing PDFs?
    Thanks! App Store is down but I would like to pur­chase soon if it can do these items.

      Hi Kirk,
      Life­Topix can do a lot for this, and specif­i­cally what you are ask­ing for is aimed at the 5.2 update tar­geted for Novem­ber (5.1 is com­ing out at the end of Octo­ber). Today, you can see all the asso­ci­a­tions by per­son (task owner, project par­tic­i­pant, trip com­pan­ion, event host/attendee, etc.). In 5.2, we plan to enhance the Peo­ple + Ser­vices topic so that for a per­son you can asso­ciate notes, reminders, audio notes, pho­tos, tasks, files, book­marks, etc. That’ll make it more effec­tive in man­ag­ing things around peo­ple — per­son by per­son.
      In our quest to make this a total orga­ni­za­tion and pro­duc­tiv­ity app, we’ll con­tinue to evolve the app based on what peo­ple use it for, so any feed­back is wel­come.
      Best regards,

    Hi
    can you add a per­son to a note, or vice versa?


    • LightArrow
      Oct 03, 2012

      Hi Ali,
      We do plan to sup­port notes, reminders, pho­tos and other data items for Per­son, and vice versa, be able to asso­ciate a per­son with a note. We expect to do this in our 5.1 update in Octo­ber or 5.2 update in Novem­ber.

    This has to do with how I use book­marks. I rarely go to the book­mark topic. I like to asso­ciate book­marks with notes. The prob­lem I’m hav­ing is some­times I already have the book­mark in Life­Topix. There are any num­ber of rea­sons why this would be. Unfor­tu­nately there is no choice when you add the first new book­mark to a note, you are sim­ply taken to the screen to cre­ate a new note. I pro­pose that there be menu but­tons for cre­at­ing a book­mark and select­ing a book­mark. Or just add two popup but­tons that give you the choice after you press add book­mark. That would help me so much. I think it would be nice to do the same thing where you add a book­mark under a ser­vice provider. It feels a bit frus­trat­ing when you have to renter some­thing or save gmail as the first book­mark so you can get to book­mark selec­tion screen.

    Thanks guys,
    Micah

      Hi Micah,
      We agree — we had done it the way it is right now to make it sim­ple to add a new one quickly (after con­sid­er­ing both options). But we are swayed now. Will make that fix in an update soon in the near future.
      BEst regards,

    Hey guys,
    I like using check­lists. I was think­ing the other day it would be cool if in the menu where you cor­rect the spelling of an item on a check­list if there were also options to copy the item or move the item to another check­list. You could just have a page pop up with all check­lists avail­able and a search bar to find the one we need. That’d be really cool. Any­way, how­ever it is done, it would be a nice improvement.


    • LightArrow

      Agreed, Micah. Thanks for the sug­ges­tion — we’ll have our devel­op­ers fig­ure out a good way to do this.

    Hello,

    Is there any­way to import a pdf from an email straight into life topic?
    For now I only noticed the option to import from an online ser­vice like drop­box.
    And will there be sup­port for more online ser­vices in the future?

    Thank you

      Hi Anto­nio,

      Thank you for your ques­tion. In our 5.0 ver­sion (a free update for exist­ing users, tar­geted for the end of July), we have added the abil­ity to import files and book­marks and cre­at­ing notes and other items from emails. For that we rec­om­mend that you cre­ate a spe­cial email address (for exam­ple, JoeLifeTopix@gmail.com), and when you for­ward emails (that have con­tent you want to be in Life­Topix) to that account, you can con­fig­ure Life­Topix to use that email as an Email Inbox, and get items you chose directly into LifeTopix.

      We will also add the abil­ity to import PDFs and JPGs etc into Life­Topix directly from your device email app either in 5.0 or in 5.1.

      Online inte­gra­tions from Life­Topix are a key part of our strat­egy — we cur­rently sup­port Ever­note, Drop­box, Google Docs, Google Tasks, Too­dledo Tasks and Notes, Face­book, and Twit­ter. We plan to add many more down the road in the areas of files, finances, health and activ­ity, etc.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow

        Sorry to ask again but will the imported files be stored (optional) on the device or will they still be on the server.

        thank you


        • LightArrow
          Jul 08, 2012

          You can store them on the device. For items that are already on an online ser­vice such as Drop­box or Google Docs, you can choose to either down­load them into Life­Topix, or just have a link to the doc­u­ment (from inside a project, trip in Life­Topix, for exam­ple), and not down­load it but view it as needed.

    When view­ing PDF files Life­Topix uses the default PDF viewer. I use a dif­fer­ent PDF viewer that allows me to anno­tate as I want to. Can Life­Topix be enhanced to use a des­ig­nated PDF app?

    ques­tion: the life­topix app i bought is dif­fer­ent than the one show­ing in the 3 minute video!!?? Where is the online ser­vices icon in cur­rent ver­sion? let me know thanks

      Hi Joseph,
      Thanks for pur­chas­ing Life­Topix and also for your ques­tion.
      Yes, the video was recorded with the first ver­sion of the prod­uct. Since then, the color scheme, some of the icons and also the names of the 2–3 top­ics have changed slightly. Online Ser­vices is now called Book­marks as that is the pri­mary type of items stored within the topic. We have added a lot of func­tion­al­ity since then.
      We do need to redo the video with more cur­rent screen cap­tures.
      Please let us know if we can assist in any way, and as you use the prod­uct, please free to offer any com­ments or sug­ges­tions.
      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow
