Is there any way to make this program work with metric units? Believe or not, no everybody uses miles, pounds inches, etc. The settings tab does not seem to have anything to allow the metric system to be default.
Sorry for the confusion. To change the units you can simply go to “Settings” –> “Manage Categories” –> “Log Entry Units” and locate the “inches” or “miles” units. Tapping on the disclosure button (located to the right of the item in the list) will allow you to edit the details of the unit including changing the name. For example tapping on the disclosure button for “miles” allows you to change the name to “kilometers” if you wish. The same can be done for the other units as well.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any further questions.
How do install updates ?
To install updates to an iOS app, open the App Store app and go to the “Updates” section. You will see a list of all the apps installed on your iOS device. If an update exists for our app you will find our app in the list. Then tap the “Update” button to the right of the app to update it.
Is there a way to add US holidays automayically
Thanks for reaching out. Yes, you can subscribe to a US Holidays calendar in your iOS Calendar app — that makes all the holidays visible in our app in the Agenda and My Calendar views.

Hello. This is a two-part question/need.
1. Is there any way to create a new checklist that allows you to browse/add projects and tasks so you can determine your priorities and agenda for the day (checklist for day-to-day agenda)? I have entered a “brain dump” into lifetopix for all my open projects and determined tasks that need to be completed. However, I have NOT set due dates because capturing all the information and action items was the first step that needed to be taken before assigning a timeline and prioritizing the work.
2. Is there any way to print out all of your projects and associated items (tasks, check lists, notes, etc)? At this point, I cannot get organized and cannot plan my work because everything is an amorphous bunch of tasks that need to be done with no prioritization or timeline.
I own two businesses, am a doctoral student working on qualifying exams and dissertation research, teacher, running the school gallery and also managing a big city contract for a planning project. I was really excited about this application and spent a ton of time setting it up. I researched productivity apps for weeks because I wanted to avoid this situation of wasting (yet again) a large chunk of time on a technology tool that ends up failing to meet my needs. Your company had great reviews and I’m impressed with your active engagement with the customers in your knowledge base. I hope you can give me some workable strategies here. Otherwise, I anticipate having to jump ship due to this being non-functional for my useage.
Thanks for reaching out! It might be easier to set up a call and go over things.
If you wish to do that, please email us: support @ lightarrow . com (without the spaces) and we’ll set up a call.
I’m a new user and loving your app. I’m just getting used to the functionality of LifeTopix. Please can you tell me whether if I add an event in the wrong category it’s possible to simply drag and drop it to a new, more suitable location instead of having to recreate the event all over again in the correct location. I’m not used to the category descriptions so i’m adding my events in the wrong location and then seeing a better place to put it and then having to start over!
Many thanks for your help.
Thanks for the kind words and the question!
If you tap on the event to see its detail, you can tap on its Category cell to change its category to the one you want, and tap Save. After that, it’ll appear in the right place.
Please let us know if we can help with anything else.
I’ve only been using this app for a few days but I think it’s really going to work for me. One feature request–unless it’s already possible and I’m just not seeing it: It would be great to be able to set up a task whose due date is dependent on a prior task’s completion, in the vein of Microsoft Project. I have several long-term projects in which later tasks can’t start until previous tasks are completed. Right now, I’m guessing at when I think I’ll get the prior tasks done and setting deadlines accordingly. But if I get off-schedule, I’ll have tasks popping up at all the wrong times. It would be really wonderful to be able to plan out a project into the future with dependencies, in which tasks kick into gear once the previous task is completed.
Thank you for reaching out to us with your question.
Our roadmap includes many powerful enhancement to our tasks and projects topic including support for task dependencies as well as task hierarchies. We are working very hard to wrap up work in our 8.0 update (which we anticipate will be available this month) which will include some enhancements to the task and project topic. After we release our 8.0 update we plan to start working on the task dependency and task hierarchy support.
We appreciate your patience.
I just loaded My.Agenda and all its add-ins. — Great App, I was always looking for such an integrative app: to see calendar and Todo’s together, to include Exchange data via iOS. I now played around, moved all my data into My.Agenda. There are more than 100 undated tasks as reminders of things to be done in the future. I wonder how to filter them b categories. Also a filter in projects would be convenient. So to say: when I look onto the Tasks and Projects view, I would like to see only those items for a specific category (to distinguish work and private).
I have read through the Help, blogs, etc. but couldn’t find any hint for filtering in a view.
Please let me know how I can use My.Agenda for this purpose.
Thanks for reaching out with the kind words and the suggestion! In our next update (due around early September), we have added the ability to view tasks grouped by Category, Context Tag, Status, Priority, Due Date (grouped by Month), and Associated Project, etc. We plan to enhance the filtering further as well in a future update. We hope the enhancements in the early September update will help with what you have pointed out.
Please reach out to us as you have additional suggestions or questions.
I can’t get my iPod touch 5 and my MAC’s LifeTopix Air Access to work together. They are both connected to my Wi-Fi, both running in the foreground, both connected to iCloud. When I open LifeTopix Air Access it doesn’t find the device. I just got my iPod and read all the reviews on organization aps, so had high hopes when I chose LifeTopix. Any clue what I’m doing wrong?
Thank you for reaching out. We are sorry you are having this issue, and we’ll work with you to resolve it.
Can you check one thing real quick — from LifeTopix Settings, My Settings, can you see if “AirAccess Enabled” is set to Yes? If not, please set it to Yes and tap Save.
Also, can you verify the version of LifeTopix in its Settings view under About?
Well that certainly was a simple fix…thank you. I will need time to figure out how to use both of them together. I noticed that you can’t do everything on Air Access the same. For example I couldn’t add a task to a project only on the iPod and not all the notes are accessible. It may just be part of my learning curve. I’m very pleased that I can use a full size keyboard to add things. Great feature!
Glad to hear it! Yes, AirAccess supports the most frequently used data, and not all of it yet. We plan to improve it with updates in the near future.
I am very excited by the thought of the organization this app will give me however I am having the hardest time figuring out where to start or how to use any of the functions!!
Thanks for reaching out! We’d gladly to a phone session with you to go over the app, and also learn which aspects of it sometimes make it confusing for new users. If you are open to that, please email us at support @ lightarrow . com (without the spaces) and we’ll schedule a time. We are located in Austin, Texas (central time).
LifeTopix is quickly becomming one of my favorite productivity applications. I would like to see the ability to search within the application. Also the checklists are a great addition to the productivity application, but if we could assign the checklist to a task it would be helpful to track the status and % complete of the task.
Thanks a bunch! We do have Search (accessible from the Quick Menu on bottom left) that goes across several things in LifeTopix. We are improving it in 7.0 (early-June) and will continue to improve it in future updates based on user feedback. We like the idea of checklists associated with tasks. In 7.0, checklists have a due date as well (so you can treat it like a list of things to be done by a certain date).
Is it possible to limit the time display in calendar from 00.00–00.00 to 07.00–23.00?
This is a very popular request from our users and we hope to have this feature available in our next update or shortly thereafter.
Hi! Can I use Lifetopix to collaborate with someone? I would like to collaborate with one person only.
You can share and collaborate from the “Discuss” section (Facebook, Twitter, Email, SMS icons) accessible from the side panel of the trip, task, shopping list, project, etc. detail view.
Here is a video showing how LifeTopix supports collaboration. The look of the app is older but the process is the same.
This is probably a stupid question, but I haven’t figured out how to make and view a simple to-do list in LifeTopix! I can make checklists that belong to a project, but how do I get an overview of the things I need to do today?
Thanks for reaching out with the question. The Home Agenda view is where you see all your dated items (near term agenda) — tasks, appointments, reminders, trips, etc. You can choose specific checklists to be available in the Home Agenda view as near term to do lists. The way to do that is tapping on “Add” to te right of “To do lists” in the Home Agenda view, and then either “New Checklist” or “Choose Existing Checklist”. If you choose the latter, you cam select an existing one you’d like to have in this view.
We hope this helps. Please let us know if we can help with anything else.
OK, I poked around that function, but just so you know, having to remember the names of the checklists and type them in is rather clunky. It would be much easier for the user to select the checklists from a list!
The “Choose Existing Checklist” option does bring up the existing lists to pick from. Is that not what you are seeing? Please let us know if we misunderstood what you meant.
Glad I found this app. Increases my productivity! I would like to be able to add my own lists, but until then, I have a request/suggestion:
“Returns” in Shopping
Thanks so much! We do plan to support Things to Return. Something to consider int he meantime — you can create a shoppinglist and call it Things to Return, and then add that shopping list to the Hot List for easy access.
Hi, I am still learning about what your wonderful app can do. I have an issue with adding tasks — the calendar now comes up with October 1, 2012 every time. How can I change this so that the current day comes up? Did i accidentally change a default setting somewhere?
A wish request! It would be great to have small options in date lines to “add 1 day“‘ “add 1 week”, “add 1 month” when you have to push out timelines, if this might be possible someday…!
Thanks so much for reaching out.
In the My Calendar view, please tap on the Today button towards the top left. It should persist from that point on. When you select a date to go to, it gets persisted, and you have to tap Today to reset it. Please let us know if that does not work.
We like your feature request — it makes perfect sense. We’ll investigate the best way to implement it in the near future.
Hi, it’s me again. Thank you for the PDF advice, I initially did not save the file, it is nowhere in lifetopix, and I do not get a second chance to save the file, please check this issue. After importing the PDF into my documents I find I cannot link it to anything, would like to link it to my projects file. Trying to use Your app to plan and execute a small project.
If you open a project detail, tap on the [+ Add Item] icon, tap on Create New, choose File, select Local Files for the folder, tap on the blue circle (>) icon to select a file, go to My Documents, tap on the name of the PDF file you had saved earlier, tap Set and then Save. That will associate the downloaded PDF with the project.
We hope that helps.
I opened a .pdf file in life topix and there was no way to save it. Is there a work around. Please help
When you open a PDF file in LifeTopix from an outside app such as Email or Dropbox, it opens in a view in LifeTopix that has a action button on the top right, which gives you a Save and a Print option. If you select Save, it saves the file in the folder of Notes + Files > All Folders > Local Files > My Documents.
If you open a PDF file already in LifeTopix in the My Documents folder, we do not give a Save option again, but rather the action icon now allows you to open it in other apps.
Good day, when using projects, I find that pics attached to one item show up in the ‘media’ folder. I am unable to share the pics between projects. Thereby ending up with multiple pics, with corresponding increase in size. I am slowly but steadily using this app. It’s great.
Thanks for the question. In an update in the near future, we’ll add the ability to attach existing photos from the Media folder to projects, trips etc.
Could you please instruct me on any font changes I can make. At my age, I need the bold dark font. Thank you. Peggy
We have made the fonts in several views much more readable in the 5.1 update coming late this month. We apologize for the inconvenience.
