    Can you invite family that you want to view your content but not be able to comment on it?

    • Please make your books more customisable, with the option to include all content!

      Hi!
      I'm a big fan of the look and functionality of the LifeCake website and app! Ultimately, I'm looking to print content in a book though, so I'm still waiting on some features and hope you'll consider adding them in the future. Specifically, it'd be great if all content, including stories and comments, could be included and there was an option for multiple pictures/stories per page.
      I recently stumbled across My Social Book and would love being able to print books of a similar look from LifeCake. Do you think your books will deliver similar features in the future?

        Hi, Johana! So sorry for the delay in responding, but we’re glad you’re enjoying the app and Website.

        We do want to provide more options in our photobooks in the future for sure. Right now we’re focusing on customer requests within our app and Website, though, so we’re unsure when we will have this. But we will update this as soon as we do.

        And in the meantime, just so you know: we have an option on our Website in Settings to ‘Download all’. With this you can download all your content – in full quality and in monthly, organised folders – so you can still print books on other sites in the time being.

        Thanks for your patience and your feedback!

      • Build a version which will work on Windows Phone

        It would be great to get one for my phone. Thanks!

        • Allow Video Share

          We have options to share pictures or download them back to our phone but our videos have zero options. Once we upload them to your site, we can't do anything with them. Can you add a share to Facebook or YouTube feature or even download back to our phone? I'm using life cake as storage and have found that I can't get any of the video back to my phone to share with people that don't have a life cake account. Thank you!

            Hi, Tammie! So sorry for the delay in responding to this.

            To download videos, you can download all your original photos and videos via the ‘Download all’ option in Settings on our Website. Just so you know.

            But we will look at downloading individual videos and get back to you!

          • Uploads failing in the new iOS app

            Since the most recent mobile app update videos and pictures will not upload. Tried multiple times and it always says "upload failed". Please fix so we can keep using the app!!

              Hi

              We’re hugely sorry for the trouble caused. There have been a few issues related to upload but the main one was caused because we ‘showed’ Photostream in the list of available albums to upload from (it isn’t possible to upload from here …and even if it were, the quality of photos/videos is reduced).

              This has been fixed and an update is currently in review with Apple. In the mean time, if you:

              1. Sign out
              2. Sign back in
              3. Select moment to upload (but pls don’t select Photostream as source folder)

              And please let our customer support team know if you still run into any issues at support@lifecake.com.

              Many apologies,
              Ed & the Lifecake team.

            • Make nicknames universal

              i think that nicknames set by the parents should be the names that show for anyone looking at the account. For example, if my brother created his account with just his name, Matt, but I put his nickname as Uncle Matt, everyone should see his name as Uncle Matt when he loves a moment or makes a comment.

                Hi, Sarah! Thanks so much for this (and sorry for the delay in responding). Seems to be getting a lot of votes.

                We didn’t do this currently because we know in many families people have their own personal nicknames for people (i.e. ‘Grandma’ for me is ‘Mum’ to my mother). This is our concern with making things universal.

                Also, who gets to decide what someone’s nickname is? If it’s personal, then there is no issue. But if it’s universal, then only one person can decide.

                Would love to know yours (and anyone else’s) thoughts on this!

                - Nick, from the Lifecake team

              • Allow some choice in thumbnails and photo positions.

                For multiple photos per date, would be nice to have some option in positioning of photos, and the thumbnails shown. Especially in the case of 2 photos on a single date, there are a lot of foreheads only being displayed!

                  Hi, Bryony. We now use large thumbnails – and square – so you should see a lot fewer thumbnails. We’re seeing how people like this, and we may also do the positioning soon, too. Would love any feedback!

                • Enable adjusting email notifications from iOS app

                  ''it would be nice if you added the option to choose if we want to cancel the option to send us emails when comments are added or photos are added to favourites.''

                  • Change permissions assigned to family and friends

                    The parent should be able to limit who adds photos or videos, because you may want some people to be able to view and comment but not be able to upload stuff.

                      Hi
                      Thanks for reaching out with this request – we know it is a much needed feature. And we’re building it too. Within about a month from now you’ll be able to choose who, from your friends and family, does what.

                      Many thanks,
                      Ed & the Lifecake team

                    • "Download All" should download EVERYONE'S content

                      Currently, "download all" only gives me the photos/video that I contributed... but I would like to archive everyone's content, not just my own. I would also like this to include the stories/comments.

                      • Give the ability to make some pics/videos private.

                        I guess it seems to defeat the purpose is you're using this awesome app to share pics/videos with family and friends. But I also like to be able to store all the pics/videos in one place. Some pics I may not necessarily want to share with everyone that can view the timeline so the option to make some pics/videos private would be great! Either way, I LOVE LifeCake!

                        • Support for animated gifs (like auto awesome from google plus)

                          We backup all photos (including non child) to Google Plus, and sometimes it creates sweet and beautiful animated photos. I tried to upload to Lifecake and the preview during uploaded was animated, but then once added the gif became static.

                          Gifs are a standard format already supported by all browsers and mobile phones, please preserve the format for lifecake photos.

                            Hey Eddie. Thanks for the feedback. We definitely could support animated gifs – it is really just a question of where we focus our resources. We’ll keep an eye on the number of votes this gets and shall keep you posted.

                              My family are really enjoying lifecake and love posting comments on my photos. However my parents are divorced and don't like reading each others comments.

                              Could you introduce a privacy option so I could keep comments hidden from different family members, or only allow them to see my comments or their own and not each others?

                                Thanks very much, Julia. We will update this when we have a better sense of when this will be possible. We absolutely understand the scenario and need.

                                Please keep the great suggestions coming! We LOVE feedback :-)

                                On the main screen, if you click on the photos displayed it brings you to a slideshow, but the slideshow doesn't show all of the pictures. To see additional pics, you have to click the green square beneath the main photo strip. My family is not very tech savvy, so they usually miss these additional photos. It would be a lot better if clicking on the main photo strip brought you to a slideshow that would show all of the uploaded photos.

                                  Hi and sorry for the slow response.

                                  We agree, the ‘drawer’ is not very intuitive and we are in the process of a redesign that will remove it altogether allowing all your moments to be visible in one stream on the timeline.

                                  Thanks for your patience.

                                  Do you plan to support flickr in the near future?

                                  • Add expected date of birth and actual date of birth

                                    My baby was born 2 weeks before his due date. Now all the pre birth pictures and notes are off by 2 weeks. If I fix that part then his after birth pictures are off by 2 weeks :(. I think this is a must solve. I love the app and use it all the time but if this doesn't get fixed I might need to look for something else.

                                      Hi.

                                      Sorry for the delayed response on this. It has been a much needed feature. It is now available on Android – you can set your gestation period – and we’ll be brining the same over to iOS and Web very soon.

                                      Thanks for your patience.

                                    • have a form for capturing some specific information about the baby.

                                      There should be a standard form to capture some specific information of the baby's life, such as day (as well as date) and time of birth, height and weight at birth (and perhaps monthly intervals), location of birth, gender, eye colour and hair colour. I know this can be done through notes, but a standard form that creates a specific nicely-formatted entry (or entries in terms of height/weight) plus photos would be quite nice. I know some of the journals available can collect data on amount of sleep/playing etc. but that's a bit too far into the realms of a…

                                        Hi Mark! This is a great idea. You’re right in that today many people do this via our ‘stories’ feature but we could significantly improve the experience here. We’re exploring this idea of ‘milestones’ – we have a D.O.B marker but could expand it to include many of the key facts & stats you mention.

                                        We definitely plan to add this in the future, and we will update here when we have it.

                                        Thanks for your patience in the meantime!

                                        • make deleting more then one photo

                                          I wanna first say I LOVE this app. It's great because we have family who dosnt use Facebook so it's great they can see my son grow. I would like to suggest when you want to delete photos that you can delete more than one at a time and after deleting it stays at the point you are at, instead of going all the way back to the beginning and have to find your way back to the section. Thank you!!!

                                            Hi, Elena! So sorry for the delay in responding to this, but we’re so glad you love Lifecake. We certainly love building it :-)

                                            For deleting multiple images at once, do you imagine doing this on the Website or in our apps? Or both?

                                            Thanks for the feedback!
