From my understanding, everyone's lifecake can be customized (ie, for different viewers of the same child). We thought it might be nice to have an option to turn that off, and let the owner dictate the layout (if they choose that option), and be able to then prioritize/feature certain content.1 vote
The way it works now is that the parents of the child will dictate what others in the family see by default: which content is highlighted and which is tucked away in the ‘drawer’.
But others in the family can over-ride these preferences if they move content around. Is this what you mean, or do you think parents should be able to lock things so others in the family cannot over-ride these preferences?
It would be great to be able to publish sound recordings : my daughter singing, my baby drinking, ... With mobile phone, we have voice recorder app included, so...11 votes
Thanks a lot for the suggestion! As much of our team came from Skype, we have a special fondness for audio. And we are looking to do something quite unique with audio in the future.
But in the meantime we can look to support basic audio recordings, as they are indeed lovely and powerful.
In Chrome, all you can see is 'lifecake | all your childre' - at least on the tabs on my screen (Win7 laptop) - maybe for tabbed browsers it could just say 'lifecake | <name of child>'?1 vote
Thanks, Nick, we will look into this!
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!
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!
Hi, I see the date changing feature (though it's super tiny and easy to miss!) but I'd love to be able to change dates in bulk.
I hope you support multiple layouts / re-arranging pictures soon!
Great job so far, the website looks beautiful. My wife will love this!1 vote
Thanks very much, Pedro. In the next week we plan to make the date changing – and the tagging to a child – much more visible. You’re right: they are not clear.
As far as changing bulk dates of content, we will assess this. But lifecake should be putting everything in the correct date for you. Every time a file is uploaded with a date format we can’t find or don’t understand, our system adjusts itself to read the new format. Can you tell me where/how you took the photos or videos which are not going to the correct date?
Many thanks for the idea! Keep them coming, please :-)
Are you going to have something where you can edit the photos a bit? Like crop images or increase the contrast?13 votes
