I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Embed video links to YouTube

    If we already have videos on YouTube, would it be possible to add them to the lifecake just by embedding a link - this might be easier as videos can take a long time to upload, download, etc. We don't store all of our videos locally (some are posted directly from the phone to YouTube), which then makes them hard to get on to Lifecake.

      Hi, Nick! This is a really interesting idea.

      Our vision for lifecake is to be the oen single story of all the moments in our child’s life. One safe place where everything lives – whether the content was on the phone, your tablet, our computer or even on the Web.

      Later this month we plan to enable importing directly from online sites like Flickr or Picasa or Facebook, so you don’t have to download from these sites and then upload again to lifecake. Youtube might also be one.

      We plan to hold the content so that you have the comfort of knowing everything is safe in on one place, but we will also explore displaying content which might be held elsewhere. We will check into this and get back to you.

      Thanks!

      Nick

      Are you going to launch an app/channel which is compatible with my Roku 3. I need to be able to display my photos on my smart tv via my ROku box like I can do with Picasa.

        Hi, Greg! To be honest, this is not in our plan right now as yours is the first request we’ve had on this (and our priorities are really guided by what our customers request most).

        But we certainly think it’s cool – as we believe ultimately the TV will be one of the best devices for lifecake – so we’ll see if this idea gets more votes from people!

        Thanks for suggesting.

      • View favourite / liked photos

        I know there are notifications when people click on the heart button but I am wondering if you could add a tab or just something within the existing search function to view these photo's only? Both in the app and on the website, it would be good to view all the photo's that people have liked and then even filter it by child too.

          Hi Nick! We think this is a great idea and something we must have. We don’t yet have a timescale but we’ll be sure to update here when this feature is available.

          Thanks for your patience in the mean time!

              Hi, Greg! Thanks a lot for the idea.

              We’ve had a few requests to make it easier to bring everything over from Picasa (or Facebook or Instagram). We’re looking into the best way to do this, and we’ll let you know when we’ll have that.

              Please keep the great ideas coming!

              It would be great if I was able to pay to get my photobook gift wrapped when I send it to Grandma.

              • Exclude low-resolution images from photo book layouts

                If you add photos from e.g. Instagram, the photos are too small to print well in a photo book, so if you auto-populate (e.g. my child's first year) it puts all the images in but with warnings about print quality - you then have to remove each one rather laboriously. It might make sense to exclude any images which are under the required print resolution, or at least allow filtering by size in the drop down underneath the drawer.

                  Thanks, Meg! We usually exclude lower-resolution photos by default, but do you have a lot more than 100? If it’s still showing lower resolution ones even when you have higher quality photos to choose from, then we might need to investigate to make sure we don’t have a bug.

                  Please let us know if you get a chance. Thanks so much!

                  • make it easy to develop single photos from within the app/web site

                    Add a feature so that you can develop single photos directly without downloading and without having to make a full book. Or is there already an easy way?

                      Hi, Frida! Thanks so much for the suggestion about prints.

                      Right now there is no way to create single prints, but we are looking at this capability. And we’ll see how many votes or requests this gets from our customers.

                      By the way, which device are you using lifecake on most?

                      Thanks!

                        Hi Judit! Thanks so much for the suggestion. We’ll add it to our backlog for sure and keep an eye on the number of votes.

                      • Photo Editing

                        It would be great if there was a built in photo editor to add things such as filters and maybe stickers, a lot of companies charge for stickers so you could have a set free sticker pack and charge for other premium ones.

                        It would be great to just be able to make small edits to photo's and then upload within the app itself rather than editing them in another app and then saving them and then uploading them, it would also free up space on devices...

                          Hey Nick! Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking into our options to offer basic photo editing within our apps and from our web – it is definitely something we want to do.

                          I’d love to know how you (and others) would like to use stickers. What type of stickers would you be most interested in?

                                The font used for the "Story" feature doesn't match the beautiful aesthetic of the rest of the site. It looks underdeveloped. I recommend changing the font, or allowing users to specify a font and a color.

                                • Create an option to select a default child for uploads.

                                  We have Lifecake accounts for both our son and our cousin's son, and every time we upload a picture we need to select which child it is for. Since we only upload pics for our son (and just view our cousin's son's account every now and then), it would be great if there were an option to make our son the default so we don't need to select him each time we upload.

                                  • Add drag and drop to reorganise timeline photos

                                    So the extra shots in the drawer below the timeline can be dragged onto the timeline to replace those selected automatically. But when I drag a replacement photo from the drawer to the timeline, there is a pre-determined order that the photos are displayed in. This is actually a bit annoying! It would be far better if I could drag and drop the exact image I want from the drawer and onto the exact thumbnail where I'd like it displayed.

                                      We’re so sorry about the delay in responding on this, James. We are looking at our Website and looking to change quite a few things, and we’ll update here when we have a test version. We’d love to get everyone’s feedback!

                                    • I would like to see the timeline label move along chronologically by Baby's age

                                      Instead of having the timeline label be based on how many days or weeks ago the photo was uploaded, it would be more helpful to be labeled according to Baby's age as of the date of the photo (i.e. two weeks old, one month old, 6 weeks old, one year old, etc.).

                                      • Option to have Description/title shown on photo timeline

                                        As you look at the Photoi in the timeline, it would be nice to be able to see the description/title as a caption under the image. This way you don't have to click on the image to see it. You should be able to turn this on and off for each photo.

                                        • Add option to include audio files

                                          I have audio files of my daughter singing laughing cooing as a baby. I'd like it if these audio files can be added and date stamped in the timeline like everything else

                                            Thanks for the suggestion, and apologies for the delay in responding!

                                            We’ve had lots of discussions about this as a team – as we can absolutely see the value – but we’re not sure when we will add this yet. But we will update here when we have news!
