LightArrow Organiser is a Productivity app for iOS from developer LightArrow Inc. The app aims to bring together all the information you need – calendars, contacts, projects and documents – into a single unifying application. In addition, LightArrow is able to incorporate data from Email, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Google, Asana, Evernote and more to really put everything in one place.
You don’t need to create an account to use LightArrow, which is a refreshing thing to see. The Dashboard breaks down information into ‘cards’ such as Calendar (events/appointments, travel + places), Contacts (including groups and call-lists), Productivity (projects, tasks and goals), Digital Content (media, files, folders, notes etc), Inboxes (email, social media accounts) and Assets, Finances & Shopping (expenses, payments, bank accounts) and more. Each section has a number of useful fields where you can enter relevant information, and cards can be customised as well.
LightArrow literally brings together everything in your life, both personal and business, into the one place. There are places to log anything you can think of – even health data like physical activity, medications and nutrition.
LightArrow is a universal app for iOS and also syncs across Mac and other iOS devices. Once you’ve added in your iOS apps like calendars and reminders, you can add extra projects, tasks or appointments quickly from the dashboard screen using the ‘Quick Add’ function. And, if you ever run into trouble, there’s a Help Centre at the top of the screen with an FAQ, direct customer service and more.
The interface is polished and professional, the use of the dashboard as the ‘home screen’ makes sense and using customisable cards to display important content means that your information is always easy access. Moving between functions is intuitive, and most importantly, you’ll feel like the user experience just makes sense.
LightArrow Organiser comes fully-unlocked from Day 1 with on-line customer support. You can choose to upgrade the app by adding ‘items’ through in-app purchases. 100 extra items will cost you $3.99. As an example, one contact is one item.
LightArrow Organiser requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
