  1. Provide a referral code to invite friends or share on social media

    If you want to invite friends to try out Lifecake, but don't have their email address or want to use the automated form, perhaps you could provide a unique referral code or link which they can use when signing up?

      HI, Meg! So sorry for the delay in responding to this. We’ve been thinking about your suggestion and how to make it easier to invite loved ones.

      The challenge is always balancing our need for complete security with the desire to make everything with lifecake fun and easy. The shared link is great for the latter but not as good on the former. But we will keep working on this!

      Thanks so much for the great suggestion.

    • Make it possible to choose the order of photos taken on the same date.

      At the moment you can't choose the order of photos taken on the same day, which is a pain. This would be a helpful improvement!

        Hi! Thanks for the suggestion and apologies for the delay in responding.

        Would your ideal scenario be that you can drag a photo to be the main one featured that day and then have the rest of the family see the same thing?

          Hi Caroline! Thanks for the suggestion – and sorry we’re not getting back to you sooner. We will continue to add platforms from where you can import to Lifecake. We don’t yet have a schedule for OneDrive but we’ll let you know when we do.

        • Give admins control over notification defaults

          The admin (me) should set up the notification defaults for people whom I add. My mom and dad and other elderly relatives aren't technologically savvy, and so when I add them, they'll get notifications on their smartphones as well as an email. I know them well enough to know that they don't want both, so it would be kind of nice if I could remotely set their notification preferences with an understanding that they could make changes if they decided to figure out how to do that.

          • Photoframe Integration

            I recently purchased a Pix-Star Wifi photo frame for all of my family members. The beauty of the frame is that it can automatically receive updates to the frame but having the photos sent to an email address. I find that when I post to Lifecake, I often have to separately email the photos to updates the frame. It would be wonderful if posted photos could emailed and "reflected" to an address attached to a family member. It would be amazing to add this integration or suggest a way I could receive updates to a photo frame. Alternatively, if Lifecake…

              Hi, Josh! So sorry that there was a delay in responding to your suggestion.

              We’re looking into how we can enable customers to integrate into photoframes in a simple way. And we’ll update in here when we know more.

              In terms of Dropbox, you can actually import from Dropbox on your computer browser, iPhone/iPad or Android in the Lifecake app. It’s an option when you click or tap on +. Just let us know if you have any issues with this.

              Have a great day!

              It would be nice if user could configure comments to show when in the timeline view instead of having to drill into a particular photo. Maybe when mouse over comment icon on desktop or touch pic on mobile devices.

                Hi Jim! Thanks a lot for this. It’s a really interesting idea that could certainly have a place on the bigger screen – tablets, computer. We’re unable to tackle it now but let’s see how it gets on in the voting.

                  • Can you provide a backup service for the content I upload ?

                    If I were to post all my pictures and images of my son, I would definitely go over your 100 GB VIP service. Do you offer more storage options? A good idea might be to provide a hard copy of the uploaded content in some sort of media. Maybe a few Blu Rays Discs?

                      Hi! Thanks a lot for reaching out.

                      We currently enable people to go over the 100GB limit with no charge. The stated limit is really to prevent abuse. But if we see a lot of demand for a really large amount from many people, then we may introduce another level.

                      We’ll have a think about your proposal, too – sounds a really interesting idea!

                      In the meantime, if you ever have concerns about limits or how it all works, just shoot us an email at feedback@lifecake.com, and we’ll get right back to you :-)

                        Hi, Brigid! Thanks very much for this.

                        We have a search function on our Website, but we hope to make this much more advanced – and eventually included in our apps, too.

                        Can you share which criteria you’d most like to search by? Title, tag, comment, date, etc?

                        Thanks!

                        I love seeing the age of my child in the pics (years, months, days), but would really also like to see the ages for each of my kids that are in the photos.

                          Hi. Thanks for the feedback. I assume you are referring to Detail View here. It’s a really interesting request – our only fear is that it could potentially ‘clutter’ the view a little. Let’s see how our users vote on this – if it gets good traction we’ll certainly prioritise.

                          Thanks,

                            We actually have a slideshow mode, but just to see your ten favourite photos. To see this, start lifecake and shake your iPhone (or iPad), and we will show what we think are your ten favourite photos. Shake it again, and see ten more.

                            But we’ll look into having a slideshow mode for the whole timeline!

                              Many thanks for this feedback. We do agree that this part of the update requires further work. We’ll ask our designers to get on it and let you know when an update might be available.

                            • have option to view date picture was taken and age of child and then the photos - like the format of Peekaboo Moments

                              In the past I have used Peekaboo Moments, but really like that you all are good about reading our concerns and addressing them. I am willing to make the switch, but would love to see the view look more like Peekaboo Moments. IMHO the current format on iphone doesn't give as much detail as I would like to see. Also it would be awesome to be able to add stickers to images like in Tinybeans.

                                  The reason we didn’t introduce usernames originally was because we got feedback from customers that they didn’t want to have to remember yet another username (as well as a password) for a service. With an email, it’s much easier to remember.

                                  So it would be good to understand your thoughts on how this would make things easier for people.

                                  Thanks!

                                  Play the pictures in the slideshow in a date sequential order to be able to "watch" the baby grow before our eyes!

                                    Thanks so much for the suggestion, Brandy! We’re actually working right now on improvements to the slideshow, and we’re looking at the order they’re played in, too.

                                    By the way, are you happy with the speed of the slideshow?

                                  • Allow lifecakes for Friends and Family

                                    Its great that you can easily show the photos of a set or individual children, but wouldn't it make sense to have the parents and other family members or friends identified/filterable as well?

                                    I suppose I could add them as 'another child', but they might not be so keen on having their age displayed as a constant reminder of the decrepitude (I am including myself here).

                                    I suppose tags could be used, but I like the idea of seeing their little photo and selecting them.

                                      Thanks, Adam! We actually made the dates go way back in time, so people could do exactly that: create lifecakes for older family members. (One of our team is actually creating a lifecake for his grandpa for his 90th birthday present this summer :-)

                                      But we hadn’t thought about the birthdate being something people might not want to advertise, Good point! We will have a think about that at our team dinner on Monday and see what we can think of.

                                      Keep the great ideas coming!

                                    • Allow changing/editing of "days, weeks and months"

                                      Instead of having a set "12 weeks" or "day one" you should be able to edit this.

                                        Great that you made the flow in the web version scrolling from top to bottom!

                                        I would like to have the possibility to click like in the flow and and comments without click the big image.

                                          Hey Stefan. We LOVE this idea. Let’s ask others to vote on it and if it gets some traction we’ll definitely look to prioritise.

                                          Thanks,
                                          Ed & the Lifecake team

                                          We all like to see the comparison of our children when they were the same age would be a great addition to the new then & now . Us at the same age !

                                            Thanks so much for this suggestion and so sorry for the delay. We have talked about this in the team a lot in the past – we’d love to do this – and it’s something we’re evaluating. We’ll update here when we know more about this.

                                            Please keep the suggestions coming!
