iPhone App Review: LifeTopix

iPhone App Review: LifeTopix

February 23rd, 2011 by

Tracking and storing information for easy retrieval is one of the best reasons to carry around an iPhone or other smartphone device. Calendars, to-do lists, and contact information are all easily organized with the device’s built-in apps, but what about things like banking information or shopping lists? Or how about keeping all of that information in one easy to access app?

LifeTopix is a universal app for iPhone and iPad that aims to be your single solution for storing all of the most important information in your life, including projects and associated to-dos, travel arrangements, photos, shopping lists with prices and quantities, and much much more.

How It Works

The app itself is laid out with a single screen showing all of the icons that let you access the areas for information storage. There is also a home button at the bottom of every screen that gets you back to this main menu with a single tap, preventing you from getting too lost.

LifeTopix is basically a huge database app into which you can pour almost any type of information you can think of. Information can almost always be accessed in multiple categories as well. For instance, you can enter your primary care doctor under “People + Services”, and then also find it under “Health + Lifestyle”.

You can also create quick lists, notes, todos, or other types of information via buttons at the bottom of the main screen. Simply bring up the menu and choose what you want to create, and it will be accessible via the appropriate categories. The app also features in-depth help files and an email or online backup and restore feature, as well as PIN security settings for secure data and a passcode lock for the entire app.

Pros And Cons

LifeTopix doesn’t have the most attractive user interface, nor does it have the best todo list or project managers, but purely as a data storage and retrieval app it gets the job done well. It has some great features, such as adding events to your devices calendar when they get added to the Events or Tasks section of LifeTopix. In fact, anything you enter that has a date associated with it gets added to your iOS calendar, which comes in very handy when creating a Travel itinerary or appointment within the app. At least you don’t need to enter the information twice.

I also initially could not for the life of me figure out how to tap and add contacts from the device’s contact list, and had to get a hint from the developer before I noticed that functionality. Developers LightArrow Inc. have said they are making an update that addresses this issue and makes it easier to directly add contacts into the app.


I’m not personally a big fan of apps that try to be everything all at once: they tend to not do any of the things that they’re trying to do as well as an app that just focuses on one task.

LifeTopix is no exception to this rule, but it is a worthwhile app to have on your device if you’re looking for a way to store a lot of important information without adding 16 different apps and icons to your iPhone’s homescreen. Combined with the backup and restore features, the passcode lock, and the ability to add events right to your devices calendar, and this app may be just the thing you’re looking for.
