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!!114 votes

Would be great if there were a way to order individual prints of photos from the Lifecake app and have them shipped directly to you.
The Lifecake creators could do this a bunch of ways - like by integrating the Walgreens API or working with a company like Shutterfly.75 votes
Hi Janet! Thank you for this suggestion. We are starting to hear this same point more and more frequently. So we have a team looking at how we best do this from both an infrastructure and user experience perspective. We’ll keep you posted.

Since the update, when I upload videos, there is no sound. I know there's sound on the videos, because I played them on my phone before I uploaded them. Help!70 votes
Hi. Ed here from the Lifecake team and sorry for the delayed response on this. The sound will be working in Lifecake, it is just that now we ‘respect’ the status of the mute button on the side of the phone. If mute is ON, no sound will play. If mute is OFF, it should work. Please note that some apps do not respect this setting.
Hope this helps. Ed
I noticed that the child's age becomes inaccurate at the start of a new month. My daughter was 4 months and 19 days on the 31 of July. Then on the 1st of Aug the app shows her as 5 months and 20 days.
I understand that this is the 5th month of her life, but she is not yet 5.5 months.
Could you please get this sorted out?57 votes
Hi. We’re hugely sorry for this. We are aware of an issue affecting some customers and are investigating. To those who are seeing this problem, please do write in to our Customer Service team on firstname.lastname@example.org providing your lifecake email address, the name of the child affected and an example of photo (the date) that shows the wrong age.

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!!!35 votes
I'd like to be able to change the email address associated with my Lifecake account. However, when I go into Settings on the web site, it seems I can only change my name and password.26 votes
Thanks for the suggestion, Jed! We will look to add this in the future.
In the meantime feel free to email us at email@example.com, and we can change your account for you!
In addition to photo books, offering Calendars would be nice too!25 votes
The app on my iPhone seems to be loading the pictures, however those who I have as viewers are unable to see my uploads. I have tried deleting & uploading again but it still is not working.22 votes
We are very sorry for the trouble you experienced. Our engineers have identified the problem and the issue has been fixed.
Please let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions.
So sorry for the inconvenience.
Thank you for your patience.

Would love the ability to batch edit photos (especially to modify the child/children in those photos and the date taken). Sometimes I post photos on Facebook a few days later than when they are taken, so I'd like to be able to change the date for those photos on Lifecake quickly.
Love your program!21 votes
Keep sizing of photos originally uploaded. After uploaded and viewed on full view some pictures are too big and cannot see entire frame. Some pictures are also shrunken down to their pre cropped , prior to upload position, despite being uploaded correctly.19 votes
Hi, Melissa! So sorry for the delay, but this should be sorted now. When you tap on portrait (vertically-aligned) photos to view them on your iPhone they should fill the screen by default – as the Camera Roll does – but if you ‘reverse pinch’ then you can see the entire photo.
Can you let us know if this isn’t working exactly as you’d like or expect it to now?
Put an option to print pictures from the time line. That way when printing the pictures we would be able to know when this life event occure17 votes
We are happy to let you know that you can now select your photos from your timeline and hit the print option and print from our printshop via the Lifecake app!

Please bring back the feature that shows you the photos you have already added when uploading new photos from iOS. Without this feature, it is all too easy to upload duplicates.16 votes
Zoom option disappeared with latest update. Please add back so I can see photo in large size rather than thumbnail before I post.14 votes
Hi. We’re sorry this feature didn’t quite make the new release. However, we’re working on a really cool update to functionality here and should have it ready in a couple of weeks.
Sorry for the trouble.
Ed & the Lifecake team
It would be really cool to be able to import certain photos albums I have on Picasa and Facebook, but to be able to select which ones and not bring them all in.
Is something like that planned?11 votes
Hi! On www.lifecake.com on your computer you can now add content from Facebook, Picasa and Instagram, just by clicking the big green + button. We will be adding more services, too!
And in the next weeks we will add this ability on iPhones, iPods and iPads, too.
If you have any requests for specific sites – like Youtube or Tumblr, please let us know!

Bonjour, le Francais est désormais disponible sur Lifecake, mais parfois l’erruer est humaine donc n’hésitez pas à nous contacter si vous voyez des améliorations à apporter!
to be able to view the images of accts you've been invited to in your app. Eg I have my son in my app but would be good to be able to view the lifecake of my sister's kids from an initial navigation page. Unless you can do this already of course...!11 votes
Hi, Candy! So sorry for the delay in responding, but the good news is that this is available now.
You can view your child(ren)’s Lifecake(s), but also those of others. As long as people share with you using the same email address that you already use in Lifecake, then you can see all children at once (and filter which you want to see at any time).
Please email us at email@example.com if you have any trouble!
Get with the programme - Android is where it is at. C'mon Nico!
Hi! You can get lifecake for Android here now:
We are updating it all the time, so please send any feedback or requests.
Ever since the new update I can't check my notifications, even though it says I have some (red dot over the bell). Please fix this!10 votes
So sorry for the trouble. This should now have been fixed so we’d love to hear from your at firstname.lastname@example.org if that is not the case. It was tied to a bug that prevented your access to What’s New view. Please do let us know if you still have issues here.
The Lifecake team.
