    Is there a free ver­sion to try?

      Hi Gary,

      Thanks for reach­ing out!

      We do not have a free ver­sion for Life­Topix. There is a starter edi­tion app called My.Agenda for US 99cents that lets one start small and add what they need. Cur­rently it’s await­ing it’s 3.0 update approval from Apple, which brings it to the same tech­nol­ogy level as Life­Topix (with­out all the features).

    Con­sid­er­ing pur­chas­ing the app, but wanted to know when Pro­Tasks is released will that be part of the full Life­Topix suite or will that have to be a sep­a­rate pur­chase? Thanks

      Hi Dan,

      Thanks for reach­ing out!

      Yes, all the fea­tures of Pro Tasks will be avail­able as an in-app pur­chase called Pro Tasks Pack in Life­Topix and My.Agenda — both are planned for May. Our plan is to always include such advanced fea­tures first as an in-app pur­chase in Life­Topix and My.Agenda, and then also as a stand­alone app soon there­after for those who just want that part as an app. We have done that with the Pro Con­tacts Pack and Pro Inbox Pack — which also are being released as stand­alone apps soon.

    Any talk of hav­ing a weekly view sim­i­lar to the one in ICal? — Visu­ally it helps me see the week as a whole.

    Can the cat­e­gories be used for con­tacts, projects, events and so on?

    Look­ing to use this as a CRM of sorts

    Thanks

      Hi Ed,

      In the April update (8.1), we pan to add an improved Month view to My Cal­en­dar for the iPad. Is the cur­rent Week view lack­ing in ways you’d like to see improve?
      Con­tacts have groups, projects/events/assets and other topic objects have cat­e­gories. They all have con­text tags as well (that go across types).

      We are adding CRM like fea­tures to the Peo­ple + Ser­vices topic in 8.0 (com­ing out in a few days) — advanced fea­tures will be avail­able as an in-app pur­chase called “Pro Con­tacts Pack”. You can see more infor­ma­tion at http://lightarrow.com/sneak-peek-8–0 and http://lightarrow.com/lifetopix/roadmap

      Hi Mike,
      Thanks so much for reach­ing out! We are adding Agenda items and addi­tional print options in the March/April update. We have a huge update (8.0) com­ing out next week with lots of awe­some things as well. More info on the 8.0 update at: http://lightarrow.com/sneak-peek-8–0 and http://lightarrow.com/lifetopix/roadmap
      The one after that (8.1 update — March/April) will focus on improve­ments in Agenda, Cal­en­dar, Tasks, Sched­ules, etc.

    Can you eas­ily trans­fer google cal­en­dar into Life­topix? Also if you con­tinue to receive google cal­en­dar entries will they be imported?


    • Team LightArrow

      Hi Dave,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      Our app works directly with iOS Cal­en­dar app to man­age your cal­en­dars. If you have added your Google cal­en­dar to your iOS device’s Cal­en­dar app then the Google cal­en­dar can be accessed in our app as well. Our app relies on the iOS Cal­en­dar app to man­age sync­ing between your cal­en­dars. After your iOS Cal­en­dar app is done sync­ing the cal­en­dars then our app shows the current/updated items in those cal­en­dars. Our app pro­vides the option to con­vert your Google cal­en­dar items into native items (data items and topic items) in our app as well.

    Hi,

    Could you add sup­port for Wun­derlist, so that I can import my to do list to LifeTopix.

    Thx

    I have tried Safari, Fire­fox and Inter­net Explorer, and all three browsers show the Life­Topix videos on the video page with­out any titles. The videos play, but I have know idea which video I’m select­ing (no titles or meta­data appear in browser).

      Nev­er­mind, it is work­ing now. Strange that all three browsers were not work­ing, and now they are. Per­haps you were per­form­ing an update?

    Just bought your app today. So far it seems over­whelm­ing but over­all pretty good. One ques­tion (for now,) how do I set a daily reminder to take my allergy pills? I’ve added the med to the Health + Activ­ity sec­tion. I see how I can update my log when I take my pill, HOWEVER, I can’t fig­ure out how to set the app to remind me each morn­ing to take it.

      Hi Joe,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      You can choose to cre­ate a device reminder from the device’s Reminders app and set it up to reminder you every day to take your pill. If Life­Topix has been given access to your Reminders app then those reminders will be vis­i­ble in Life­Topix as well.

      You can also make a check­list with all your daily items — call it Daily Rou­tine and add it as a To Do List in the Agenda view, so that it’s eas­ily acces­si­ble. We don’t have a reminder for it yet, but the items can be cleared and rechecked. We also sup­port repeat tasks and appoint­ments that sup­port alerts. How­ever a device reminder is a good way to do thus right now, and it’s eas­ily vis­i­ble on the Agenda view as men­tioned above.

      Best regards,

      Thanks for a fine app.

      At the moment an activ­ity span­ning a block of days is indi­cated with a dot in the days in week/month view. It would be great if the month view can show time bars run­ning across a block of days. It would be even bet­ter if they can be colour coded. Eg. Con­fer­ence (blue), vaca­tion (green), exams (red). Pocket Infor­mant offers a really use­ful cal­en­dar. I’m sure it would be easy for you folks to do. Thanks in advance.

        Hi Sam,

        We do plan to improve the cal­en­dar views with lines/blocks to visu­ally denote booked times, as well as sup­port color for type/status etc.

          Very impressed by your rapid response, Team LightAr­row. Glad to learn about upcom­ing cal­en­dar improvements.

          Four more requests to improve cal­en­dar, which is the main weak­ness in your suite:

          1. At the moment, your year view is actu­ally an action/event list. Would be very good if you could also make it show the 12 months of the year at a glance, in a pop out.
          2. A glid­ing week view on top
          3. Abil­ity to change/move a task/event on the cal­en­dar by tap­ping.
          4. Enable hor­i­zon­tal views in the iPhone app?

          Thanks.

            Hi Sam,

            Thanks again for the sug­ges­tions. We will see what it would take to get these fea­tures in the prod­uct. We already have plans to get the app to work in land­scape mode on the iPhone.

    Hi!
    I’m new to this app but I already love what peo­ple describe it can do. I would love it if you would upload some new instruc­tional videos with the more recent plat­form. This looks like it might be the orig­i­nal life topix which looks very dif­fer­ent than the cur­rent ver­sion so it’s hard to use the videos as tuto­ri­als because every­thing looks dif­fer­ent. If you can replace these old videos with new ones for the iPad that would be awe­some for new users. I don’t want to give up on this app cause I know it’s going to be awe­some but videos would help with the learn­ing curve.

    Thanks :-)

    Another fea­ture I would love to see added and that I do not see any­where on your App is “GOALS
    I have in the past used color coded index cards to set goals for myself, such as read three books this month, or buy 2 IPads by this date, or fin­ish Get­ting my office clut­ter free by this date. I asso­ciate pho­tos with some of the goals (like the IPad one) for visual incen­tive. Is ther a way to have life Topix cat­e­gory on here that allow me to view those Major goals in an “at a glance” view?

    Thanks,

    Jeff


    • LightArrow
      Jul 29, 2012

      Hi Jeff,
      Thanks for the ques­tion. We cur­rently sup­port Con­text Tags which some users use for goals. Most items in Life­Topix can be tagged with a con­text, and in the Con­text Tags view, you can view all the items in a given con­text. In a future update we plan to assign a color or a photo to a con­text so that they are eas­ily dis­tin­guish­able in a mixed-item view such as all the cal­en­dar views in life­Topix.
      In the future, we do plan to sup­port goal man­age­ment more explic­itly, so that a goal is more of a state­ment with a date asso­ci­ated with it, sim­i­lar to what you have sug­gested. We plan to try our log item met­rics with the goals. FYI, today we also sup­port a “target/goal value” with log items for activ­ity, nutri­tion, etc. For exam­ple, one can set a goal value of 180 min­utes for Weekly Total for car­dio activ­ity, or 8 glasses of water as a Daily Total.
      We appre­ci­ate your reach­ing out to make us a bet­ter app!

        Not bad, but I’m look­ing for a short descrip­tion for a goal and the abil­ity to import a photo from my IPad, or a photo I found on the Internet

        Exam­ple: “BUY NEW CAR” with a photo of that Car next to the Goal, abil­ity to color code items “to buy” in gold, “health goals” in blue, “finan­cial” goal in red
        Etc


        • LightArrow
          Oct 16, 2012

      Hi Jeff,
      Thanks for using Life­Topix, and for the ques­tion!
      In our 5.0 update (due out in a cou­ple of weeks), the Home view has an agenda like view that has date rel­e­vant items for Today, Tomor­row and the 7 days after.
      In future updates, we plan to add a weekly view to all our cal­en­dar based views as well.

    Hi Tjeerd: Thanks for the app. Is there any way to have ‘all day’ tasks show up on the day and month view of the cal­en­dar as a sin­gle line item at the top sim­i­lary to out­look? For those items, it shows 12am to 12am meet­ing request. Thanks, jp

      Hi James,
      Thanks for reach­ing out with the ques­tion. Show­ing all day tasks as a sin­gle line item at the top is some­thing we are plan­ning to do in an update in the near future — most likely in the 5.1 update next month.

    Hi,
    I have down­loaded your app as it looks like some­thing very use­ful. The abil­ity to link items across is a won­der­ful idea.

    I have started to try and enter my data, but I can­not seem to find how to change it to met­ric, as in cms and kgs etc.

    My apolo­gies if you have already addressed this issue. I have been hunt­ing the help areas with­out suc­cess so I thought a direct ques­tion would be the way for me to go.

    Thanks for a great app.

      Hi Lyn,
      Thanks for your kind words, and for reach­ing out to us!
      All the log units are cus­tomiz­able. In Life­Topix, you can go to Sys­tem (gear icon on the bot­tom of Life­Topix home view) and Man­age Cat­e­gories. Towards the bot­tom, you can tap on Log Entry units, and add new ones such as kgs, meters, cm, etc. You can also edit an exist­ing unit’s title (from pounds to kgs, for exam­ple). After doing that, they are avail­able while mak­ing log entries.
      In the Near Me view, you can change the units to kilo­me­ters from miles.
      We hope that helps!

    Hello,
    i’m a new user try­ing to find my way around–but the main rea­son I looked for some­thing more than iPad default soft­ware is a bet­ter cale­nar. It seems to me that the “month” view is a bit wasted. The cal­en­dar is small and still shows the day time­line also vis­i­ble in the Day view. I would vastly pre­fer the cal­en­dar take up most or all of the space, to see actual events / appts. / bills due / trips all together through­out the month instead of just a “.” and also hav­ing to choose them by type and see­ing all of one type of trans­ac­tion. Now it would be help­ful to keep the detail list for the cho­sen day in month view, in addi­tion to the month cal­en­dar, but the day time­line on the same view is not use­ful to me–I would rather switch to day view if fur­ther detail on the tim­ing is nec­es­sary.

    Hi there.
    Good look­ing app. Some­times seems like a bit of a steep learn­ing curve, but I like how it has most things in one app. Just some ques­tions:
    – Is it pos­si­ble, once I have made a Quick Add Record­ing, Note, etc. to then move it to another item — e.g. an already exist­ing Project? I just like to quickly add things some­times, and then file them later. I can’t see how you can do this cur­rently.
    – Is it pos­si­ble, for a future release, to link Health and Activ­ity to a Project? I have a Project, such as ‘Lost Weight’ that has var­i­ous aspects to it, but can’t see how it can be linked to Health and Activ­ity items like weight, food, etc.
    – Can a future release have the option to add cus­tom mea­sure­ments that are not num­bers (e.g. Y/N) under Health Activ­i­ties. E.g. Exer­cise — Y/N. Cur­rently all val­ues have to be numeric (I believe).
    Thanks,
    Jared.

      Hi Jared,

      Thank you for the compliment!

      You raise sev­eral great points — we’ll address each one of them in turn.

      First, regard­ing whether or not you can take an item that you have cre­ated pre­vi­ously and assign it to another item… You may have noticed that tasks, notes, book­marks, and files already work that way. In other words, you can cre­ate a task (either via Quick Add, or via Tasks + Projects > Task List or Tasks + Projects > Task Cal­en­dar) and then, at some later date, assign that task to a topic object (project, event, trip, visit, etc.) — you do that using the (+/-) but­ton in the task list for a project/trip/event etc. The same with notes, files and book­marks. The feed­back on this model has been so pos­i­tive that we intend to apply it more gen­er­ally through­out the prod­uct so that you will be able to do the same sort of thing with audio clips, check­lists, etc. As always, you can mon­i­tor our roadmap on our web­site to learn when fea­tures like this are planned.

      We are also sim­pli­fy­ing and mak­ing it eas­ier to add items directly to topic objects in update 3.1 com­ing in December.

      We have never been asked before for the abil­ity to asso­ciate a Health + Activ­ity log to an item such as a project — that’s a really inter­est­ing idea. We’ll dis­cuss that and see if we can do it in a user-friendly way that would give you the capa­bil­ity you are after. Allow­ing gen­eral pur­pose met­rics to be asso­ci­ated with topic objects (projects, trips etc.) does make sense to us.

      You are cor­rect that cur­rently all the log value types are numeric. A binary (yes/no) log value type is cer­tainly rea­son­able, so we will look into how we can add that to the prod­uct. While we’re doing that, are there other log value types that you would con­sider par­tic­u­larly useful?

      Thanks very much for your ques­tions and suggestions!

      Team LightAr­row.

    Hi I fol­low the instruc­tions of you Online Backup and restore, but can­not find out how the folder Reg­u­lar Back­ups is cre­ated. Is that on the device or in MobileMe? In my case the action to backup ends up with the com­ment that the online folder is not acces­si­ble. Who is that i do wrong?

    Kind regards, Tjeerd


    • LifeTopix Support
      Aug 04, 2011

      Hello Tjeerd,
      Thanks for using Life­Topix and for your ques­tion!
      In the first part of this video, when the user logs in to MobileMe, the folder they see called “My Reg­u­lar Back­ups” is a folder that they should have already cre­ated on MobileMe. You can name it any­thing you wish, but it needs to be cre­ated on your MobileMe account directly before Life­Topix can select it (as shown in the video) and use it for back­ups and restore.
      Also, Apple has already announced that they will replace MobileMe later this year with iCloud. For that rea­son, we rec­om­mend that for now users should use Drop­box for Life­Topix back­ups. Drop­box is a free ser­vice. We will sup­port iCloud when it is pub­licly avail­able to users.
