WHAT CAN I DO HERE?

NOTE: This help page applies to both LifeTopix (and other classic LightArrow apps) as well as to LightArrow Organizer for iOS and Mac. So, the screenshots and directions may vary slightly based on the app you’re using.

In your LightArrow app, you can manage Service Providers, which are companies, organizations, or individuals from whom you receive a service. For example, AT&T may be the company that provides your mobile telephone service. Or, State Farm insures your car, you stream movies from Net­flix, or Dr. Welby is your personal physician. For service providers, you can manage information such as location, online access (bookmarks/usernames/passwords), referred by, context tags, and categories.
