My Apps
Do More. Be More. Live More.
Shortcuts to an Organized Life.


The My Apps view allows you to launch any of your apps directly from your LightAr­row app — no more search­ing for apps or exit­ing your LightAr­row app to locate and launch the apps that you fre­quently use.


URL Schemes: You can launch your favorite apps by sim­ply set­ting up URL schemes. The for­mat of the URL scheme is app name://. For most apps, the URL scheme includes the name of the app, such as Yelp://. How­ever, some apps such as Face­book use an abbre­vi­ated name. For exam­ple, for Face­book the URL scheme is fb://.

You can find URL Schemes for pop­u­lar apps at:

To set up an app to launch from the My Apps view:

  1. From the Dash­board, tap My Apps from the View Selec­tor and then tap the plus sign.
  2. In the Name field, type the name of the app.
  3. Tap the infor­ma­tion icon next to the App Id field – for many apps, all the infor­ma­tion is com­pleted after this action is com­pleted. If not, fol­low the next steps.
  4. In the Launch URL field, type the URL scheme, such as app name://.
  5. In the App Id field, tap the Dis­clo­sure but­ton to auto-fill the App Id.
  6. Tap Save.

After you com­plete the above pro­ce­dure, the app dis­plays in the My Apps view, and you can launch your app directly from this view by tap­ping the app and then tap­ping Launch. If the app does not launch cor­rectly or an incor­rect app icon dis­plays, you might need to mod­ify the App Id man­u­ally. To find the cor­rect App Id, con­duct a Google search. Hint: From the App store, the app id is the num­ber shown in bold in the fol­low­ing exam­ple in the URL of the page, such as: (e.g. 399076264 is the App Id).

To mod­ify the app id:

  1. In the My Apps view, tap the name of the app you wish to modify.
  2. Tap Con­fig­ure.
  3. Mod­ify the launch URL, if needed, in the Launch URL field.
  4. Mod­ify the App Id directly in the field.
  5. Tap Save.

To delete a ref­er­ence to an app:

  1. In the My Apps view, tap the name of the app you wish to modify.
  2. Tap Clear From My Apps.

    Once you’ve launched an app like twit­ter from the lightar­row dash, can you close out of the app and be taken directly back to your app page in lightar­row. I have only been able to close out all together then have to go back and relaunch lightarrow.

      Hi Stacey,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us.

      Once an app is launched from Life­Topix, that launched app has no knowl­edge of that fact that it was launched from Life­Topix.
      So, we are afraid that it is cur­rently not pos­si­ble to launch Life­Topix after you are done with the launched app. This is a tech­ni­cal lim­i­ta­tion with the Apple iOS.

      Also, please note that it is pos­si­ble to quickly switch back to Life­Topix app from the launched app using the fol­low­ing steps:
      1. Double-press the device Home but­ton to show all the run­ning apps.
      2. Scroll to Life­Topix App and tap to launch LifeTopix.

      Should you have any fur­ther ques­tions, do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us again.

      Best Regards,
      Team LightAr­row
      Austin TX
