  1. Change permissions assigned to family and friends

    The parent should be able to limit who adds photos or videos, because you may want some people to be able to view and comment but not be able to upload stuff.

      Hi
      Thanks for reaching out with this request – we know it is a much needed feature. And we’re building it too. Within about a month from now you’ll be able to choose who, from your friends and family, does what.

      Many thanks,
      Ed & the Lifecake team

        • Add multiple shipping addresses for photo books.

          There is only one option for billing / shipping so I had to order a photo book to my house which I will then have to ship to someone else. This doesn't make sense, and is too time consuming. Plus with the holiday's it may not make it in time. what if I wanted to order the same book to several people?... would be nice to add this feature. It's pretty basic after all.

          • Different Notification Settings Per Child

            Have a different setting for every child following. I have started following a friend's child in addition to my own. I like being notified daily about things for my child, but only want the weekly update for my friend's child. Can we have notification settings be different for every child?

            • 'Hide' the wording "Discover our new print products!" from the heading of every message.

              When I see a message from you in the inbox on my iPhone I see who it's from, e.g. "Steffy commented on Joshua Michael's timeline", but then I get two lines of advertising saying "Discover our new print products!"
              This means that I have open the message to read what Steffy has said.
              I think that it is possible for you to "hide" all of the opening text [inside some sort of picture frame?] so that the iPhone message preview shows the opening words of what Steffy has said. Then I can choose to see the whole message (with advertising…

              • have the option to view the age of the child or the date of the photo on the website as is possible in the android app

                I really like lifecake and especially like the fact that you can have the age of the child rather than the date of the photo in the app. However, it is disappointing that this is not possible on the website which is the only platform that many family members use. This makes it harder for them to see how old the child is in each photo and see how much they've changed. It would be great if the website functioned like the app in showing either the age of the child or the date the photo was taken. Seeing how…

                  Hey Gemma. Thanks so much for the feedback. You are completely right – we’re missing a big trick not making more of a child’s age in the web timeline.

                  So, we’re in the middle of a big update to fix that. It should be ready in the next month.

                  Thanks,
                  Ed

                • Add expected date of birth and actual date of birth

                  My baby was born 2 weeks before his due date. Now all the pre birth pictures and notes are off by 2 weeks. If I fix that part then his after birth pictures are off by 2 weeks :(. I think this is a must solve. I love the app and use it all the time but if this doesn't get fixed I might need to look for something else.

                    Hi.

                    Sorry for the delayed response on this. It has been a much needed feature. It is now available on Android – you can set your gestation period – and we’ll be brining the same over to iOS and Web very soon.

                    Thanks for your patience.

                      Hi, Cathy. So sorry about this hassle.

                      We are working on this right now – so everyone can easily unsubscribe from comment emails – but in the meantime we have turned off comment emails for you in the system. (In the app you had turned off notifications but not emails, and we can see how that might not be as clear as it should be in the app currently).

                      Hope this helps!

                    • Make it easier to see ALL of the pictures

                      On the main screen, if you click on the photos displayed it brings you to a slideshow, but the slideshow doesn't show all of the pictures. To see additional pics, you have to click the green square beneath the main photo strip. My family is not very tech savvy, so they usually miss these additional photos. It would be a lot better if clicking on the main photo strip brought you to a slideshow that would show all of the uploaded photos.

                        Hi and sorry for the slow response.

                        We agree, the ‘drawer’ is not very intuitive and we are in the process of a redesign that will remove it altogether allowing all your moments to be visible in one stream on the timeline.

                        Thanks for your patience.

                      • Photoframe mode

                        Hi,
                        Really like the app, great idea and nice and simple to use! One thing I think would be nice would be the ability to view all the photos full screen automatically, as you would on a digital photo frame, and not just for tablets - I'd use it on my tablet at home but on my phone at work while docked on my desk.
                        Keep up the good work!

                          Hi, Liam! So sorry for the delay in responding.

                          Last year we had a slideshow feature – when you shake your iPhone or iPad – but we will be improving this in the next weeks. And we’ll update you here when it’s in the App Store and it would be great to get your feedback :-)

                        • Replace Kid with Child

                          Hi there,

                          I really love Lifecake. I have introduced it to all the women in my NCT group and beyond and they too are fans. It is a lifesaver for remote in-laws who don't get to see their grandchild as often as they would like. And, for me, as a UX type professional I love the fact that the photos are mine not yours.

                          The interface is excellent. I mainly use the app. I have nothing but praise except for the fact that it says 1 Kid. I would much prefer child.

                          I accept that this may be a question…

                              Hello,

                              We are very sorry for the delayed response on this. We are aware of this issue on our iOS Apps and we are working on a new design for Lifecake now – which will also fix this issue.

                              Thank you for your feedback.

                              I would love to share the Lifecake imagery and video with a variety of different friend/family groups in my life, but it would be more appropriate for their communication streams to be separate.

                              I saw another person on the forum ask if you could hide comments so that one one person didn't have to see the comments of another family member/friend. Having seperate circles could be another way to meet that need. The two people that don't get along would never be in the same circle.

                                Hey Nicole. Thanks so much for the feedback. We completely agree and have started working on it …to be rolled out in iterations in the coming months.

                                In parallel we are also making family/friend permissions more granular. So if there is someone you don’t want to be able to comment, you’ll be able to switch that off.

                                Thanks,

                                • Add the # (hashtag) system

                                  It would be great if you could implement the # feature so as to be able to keep photos organized by # such as #location, #event, #holiday, #familynames, etc..
