I love your slideshow option for uploading multiple photos of a single event, like a birthday party. (This feature sets you apart from your competition). But instead of having to upload each image separately and then make a slideshow out of them (thus duplicating the images on my timeline), it would be great to be able to choose several images at once (from iPhoto or wherever you load from) and put them directly into a slideshow...with no duplicate stills.1 vote
Hi, Joan! So glad you love this feature :-)
Just so we’re sure we understand, are you keen to make slideshows with photos that you don’t want to actually have in your Lifecake timeline?
Thanks for helping us understand.

Right now once you drag the first picture or movie the draggable target disappears (replaced with status of current uploads). Please keep an area of the screen targetable so we can drag more pictures without having to close the window and open another one.4 votes
Thanks a lot, Pedro. We’re working on ways for you to do bulk uploads of content while still being able to add tags and descriptions to items in progress. We’ll keep you posted!
When I selected which videos to upload from googleplus, the previews were animated. Now that they're uploaded, the preview thumbnails are all static... I have to click play to see them move.
I liked seeing the many animated thumbnails at once.
Make this happen in the timeline too.
See google plus or facebook for examples.6 votes
Hi Daniel! This is a great idea. We’d love to offer this functionality within our apps. We’ll start investigating how we can best make this happen. Have a great day! Ed
when uploading photos, it would be very helpful if the order of photos within Lifecake were the same as on my iPhone's camera roll.1 vote
Hi! We’ve had a lot of debate about this within the team …and a lot of talking with mums and dads. The overall consensus was that, for speed and convenience purposes, it makes sense for the newest moments to be found at the top. However, let’s see how popular this point is and whether we need to revisit our thinking here. Thanks, Ed
every song I selected was copyright . Can you filter so only available songs are shown?1 vote
Hi Jim! Thanks for the suggestion – it makes total sense and we’ll definitely investigate whether this is possible with a workaround. Today, we’re allowed access to the music you have in iTunes and we’re only given the copyright alert once you make your selection.
Make it so the app sorts the photos from dates rather than having to trawl through thousands of photos yourself!!1 vote
Hi, Emma! Thanks a lot for this.
Currently when you import content into our apps – from the phone, tablet, computer or Web accounts – we automatically put moments into your child(ren)’s timeline(s) at the right date. Is this what you mean?
We do sometimes face issues with detecting the date the moment was captured, as many apps remove or alter this data. Which is frustrating.
Please let us know a bit more about what you’re suggesting, and we’ll get right back to you.
Sort the "Add Photos and Video" source list by most used, or allow hiding of sources that aren't used.
When adding photos, it would be great to either hide sources that I don't use (like Facebook, Picasa, and Instagram) or to sort the list by most frequently used sources.
I realize that you can just click "All photos and videos" but its still visual clutter for those that don't use those services.1 vote
Hi Eugene! Thanks for this suggestion. You make a really good point and we have some ideas about tackling this. Is your default album typically ‘camera roll’ or do you source from other albums equally?
I'd like to be able to email photos to a specific email address and have them appear in my child's timeline.8 votes
Thanks so much for this, Judit, and so sorry for the delay in responding.
This is in our plan, but we don’t know yet when this will be available. We will keep you posted here, though!
Thanks a lot for the suggestion! We’ve had this raised by a few customers, so we’re looking into this. And we’ll let you know what happens.

Hi, Ed! Thanks a lot for this and sorry for the delay in responding. This is definitely a feature we’d like to add in the future, and we will update here when we have it.
Thanks for your patience in the meantime!
It's a bit annoying that when I delete a photo, the gallery viewer closes and I have to find my way back to where I was to continue browsing through the photos if I want to delete some more.5 votes
Thanks for the suggestion, Andrew!
Would it feel most natural to you if the next item in the series was displayed?
I would like all the photo's that I have posted for 1 day to be view in the timeline instead of clicking the green box under the photo to view the other photos. Currently, you can only view 3 or 4 photos in the timeline for any particular day. This also goes for the iPhone. Maybe a setting to allow or not allow this would be helpful.4 votes
Thanks very much for the suggestion Ilsa, and apologies for the delay in responding.
We are currently evaluating ways in which we can keep the timeline simple but also show more content (for those who would like it).
We will keep you update on how we get on. And in the meantime, please keep the great suggestions coming! We LOVE feedback :-)
All the best,
Nick from Team lifecake
separate the comments so that only the ones applicable for a specific child is shown? in other words the comments for the unticked child di1 vote
Hi! So sorry for the delay in responding.
Are you referring to the ’What’s New’ area in our apps or Website? And ideally you’d like those comments to be filtered when you filter the timeline for children?
When the notfication of somebody joining the lifecake arrives, please add the original email adress for this person in addition to their use
When the notfication of somebody joining the lifecake arrives, please add the original email adress for this person in addition to their user name. Today sometimes people join that I cannot identify via their user name. It would be helpful to have their email address next to the user name, so at least I know who uses e.g, the user name snj or sas or nsa.
Thank you a lot1 vote
Hi, Bjoern! So sorry for the delay in responding.
The notifications you receive about people accepting your invitation should be using the first name they give us when they sign up. Is it not doing that?
We have held off on including the email address as we have some size limits on the notifications and sometimes the emails can be quite long.
As I put in more pictures and videos, I'm noticing that many are being put in the bottom row (hidden) until I click on it. Can you look into making a Calendar view by Month/Year to make things easier to find? Maybe make 1 picture the cover of the day in the month.. ?2 votes
Hi, David! So sorry for the delay in responding – this one slipped through the net. Are you referring to our Website version?
When you untick another family members added child, the associated comments should disappear as well as pics
Once you have accepted an invitation from a family member to add their child to your timeline you see their pictures and comments alongside your own. If you just want to then view your own childs pics you can untick any other child names and the pics disappear leaving just your child, but all their comments are still there.10 votes
Thanks a lot for this, Lee, and sorry for the delay in responding. We’ll look into this one, and we’ll update this when it is coming :-)
Is there a way we can add music? My dayghter's current fav song is Happy, it would be nice to look back and remember what music she loved1 vote
Hi, Khilna! Thanks a lot for the suggestion. We like that song, too :-)
We don’t currently have a specific way to track songs, but for our kids and nephews and nieces we actually use the story option to write the name of the song and any details. (I also added a video of my nephew singing his favourite song -‘Rocket man’ by Elton John – and my other nephew dancing to his favourite song, Kaya).
But we’d love to add even more ways to capture these in the future. Please keep the great suggestions coming!
If you are updating a bunch of memories from a single event (e.g. day at the beach), it would be nice if you could add a title and/or description for the whole group of photos, rather than having to title each photo. The title for the group could also be displayed on the timeline (perhaps with an on/off toggle) so you could quickly know where the photos were from.5 votes
Thanks a lot, Jed. We’ve discussed this quite a lot as a team before – some of us have wanted exactly this when we’ve been adding events to our kids’ lifecakes.
We are not sure when we might have this, but we will keep you updated when it might be coming.
Thanks for the suggestion!
I use Lightroom for managing my photos, and it embeds IPTC captions in exported JPEGs. Many services like Google Plus and Flickr automatically pull from these captions; can you do the same with Lifecake?6 votes
Hi, Martin! And thanks a lot for this great suggestion.
We are looking to improve our desktop app in lots of ways, and we can investigate this idea. We absolutely want lifecake to play better with other great photo and video apps on your computers.
We’ll keep you posted!
Would it be possible (for web version) to add a full-screen or larger screen viewing mode (similar to Picasa, Flicker, etc)?7 votes
We’ve actually been talking about this a lot, Nick. We are rolling it out first in our iPad app in a few weeks, but we will try to do this on the Website soon, too. Will keep you posted!
- Don't see your idea?
