          Hi,

          is there a way to switch languages in LC? I don't seem to be able to find it if there is.

          Interestingly enough the mails I receive from LC are actually held in German while the website is all in English.

          Thanks for your help,
          /a

              Hi, Candy! So sorry for the delay in responding, but the good news is that this is available now.

              You can view your child(ren)’s Lifecake(s), but also those of others. As long as people share with you using the same email address that you already use in Lifecake, then you can see all children at once (and filter which you want to see at any time).

              Please email us at support@lifecake.com if you have any trouble!

            • Import from Dropbox & YouTube

              Hi

              Correct me if I am wrong but are the files for lifecake hosted on the Amazon servers? If so, so are the files from dropbox and using their API I don't think it would be too difficult to create an option to import from dropbox and the transfer speed would be quicker than say importing from your computer as they are on the same servers?

              Also I think the service is more geared towards images and photo's, maybe due to keeping costs down? But it would be a great option to be able to import video from youtube (user…

                Hi, Nick! You can now import from Dropbox on both iPhone and Android. Give it a try!

                We haven’t had many requests for YouTube – as it’s such a public platform – but if we get requests for that we will look to add it.

                ''Videos in my phone's photo album play based on the volume on the phone and aren't tied to the ringer. In fact, most apps play based on the sound volume.

                Maybe you could put an in app toggle on the settings page to allow videos to play with sound while on vibrate/mute mode? ''

                      • allow ordering of individual prints of photos from Lifecake

                        Would be great if there were a way to order individual prints of photos from the Lifecake app and have them shipped directly to you.

                        The Lifecake creators could do this a bunch of ways - like by integrating the Walgreens API or working with a company like Shutterfly.

                            Hi. Ed here from the Lifecake team and sorry for the delayed response on this. The sound will be working in Lifecake, it is just that now we ‘respect’ the status of the mute button on the side of the phone. If mute is ON, no sound will play. If mute is OFF, it should work. Please note that some apps do not respect this setting.
                            Hope this helps. Ed

                                  Hello,

                                  Currently you should be able to access Lifecake in French by changing your browser’s language if you are accessing Lifecake from the Web, by changing your device’s language on an iOS device or by changing the language from within the Lifecake app on Android devices.

                                  If this does not work for you – please email us at support@lifecake.com and we’d be happy to help you further!

                                      Thanks a lot for the suggestion, Ilsa! We will look to see when we can add this.

                                      In the short term, we know it’s not as convenient, but you can edit a story on our Website (www.lifecake.com), but just clicking on the text.

                                      Please keep the great suggestions coming! We LOVE feedback :-)

                                        Bonjour, le Francais est désormais disponible sur Lifecake, mais parfois l’erruer est humaine donc n’hésitez pas à nous contacter si vous voyez des améliorations à apporter!

                                        I'd like to be able to change the email address associated with my Lifecake account. However, when I go into Settings on the web site, it seems I can only change my name and password.

                                        • photos directly from Iphoto

                                          On my Mac I have a lot of photos from Iphoto. It is my default storage program. An easy way to get them straight from the library, which is hard to find!!

                                            Hi, Greg! Thanks for this.

                                            Have you tried our Mac uploader? You can drag folders of photos and videos from your Mac or iPhoto into the app, and it will upload and add all of them to your lifecake and put them in the right date order.

                                            If you go to our Website and sign-in, there is a gear icon in the top right of the timeline page. In there you have a ‘Desktop uploader’ link. This will enable you to get our desktop app and upload large amounts of content from your computer.

                                            Any questions, just let us know at support@lifecake.com.

                                            Enjoy!
