        • 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 Janet! Thank you for this suggestion. We are starting to hear this same point more and more frequently. So we have a team looking at how we best do this from both an infrastructure and user experience perspective. We’ll keep you posted.

            Since the update, when I upload videos, there is no sound. I know there's sound on the videos, because I played them on my phone before I uploaded them. Help!

              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!

                    The Lifecake team.

                        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 :-)

                        • 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!

                          • I have a lot of trouble signing in & there seems no way to get customer support. Maybe once in 10, or more, log-in trys can I connect.

                            • Removal of

                              I've just added a few family members to our LifeCake account. However it would appear one of them (my dad) has gone wrong and just lists a blank and then "(pending)" next to it. I suspect he might have trouble getting on, but we shall see.

                              That is not the idea, however, rather it highlights an interesting feature that could do with being introduced: account member deletion. While you can indeed set people's permissions to 'none', effectively barring them from accessing your account, you can't actually remove anyone altogether. Maybe this is something you could look at introducing?

                                Hi, Rob! This is now possible on iPhone or iPad (and coming to our Website soon). To delete someone, just open the ‘Share with family’ section in Settings and then swipe right over their name (you’ll see an option to Delete).

                                Any questions or comments, please let us know. And thanks for the suggestion!

                                The one thing I'd really like push notifications for is when another member of the family adds new content as new content can sometimes be buried or not immediately obvious on the home screen. At the moment, I don't find out until the end of the week when the email arrives. This would be particularly nice when I'm working away from home or the kids are on holiday with the grandparents.

                                  Hi, Dr Congo!

                                  We hear you, and we’re planning this one.

                                  One question we have for you: how often would you like to receive these? For example, if you are away from the kids and the grandparents add 15 photos during the day, would you prefer to get a notification each time or just once at the end of the day?

                                  In the meantime, one thing you can do is change your email settings so you get an email every day content is added, not just at the end of the week.

                                  To do that, on your iPhone or iPad:
                                  - Tap on the icon in the top left (for notifications)
                                  - When the notification pane appears, tap on the Settings icon at the top
                                  - Under ‘Notifications’ tap on the email icon next to ’Comment added. This will uncheck emails. If you tap it again, you will get a…

                                • Show which photos have already been uploaded

                                  Please bring back the feature that shows you the photos you have already added when uploading new photos from iOS. Without this feature, it is all too easy to upload duplicates.

                                  • iPhone shows age instead of Date

                                    Can you allow the user to configure app to show Age, date of picture or both on mobile and desktop?

                                    Regards,
                                    Jim

                                      Hi Jim! You absolutely can do this. If you tap on the side block (for iPhone) this toggles it between age and date (if only one child filtered in timeline). On Android, if you tap either the date or age header (depending on what is shown), it will toggle too between age and date.

                                      Hope this helps!

                                      Zoom option disappeared with latest update. Please add back so I can see photo in large size rather than thumbnail before I post.

                                        Hi. We’re sorry this feature didn’t quite make the new release. However, we’re working on a really cool update to functionality here and should have it ready in a couple of weeks.

                                        Sorry for the trouble.

                                          Hi Linda. So sorry for the confusion on this. It was a mistake – where you’re NOT a parent in Lifecake, you should only be asked for Camera Roll access IF you initiate the upload flow. We are fixing this and it will be released in the next 2 weeks.

                                          In the mean time, please do note that by granting us permission, it just allows us to display your photos in ‘select view’ should you wish to upload a photo/video. It you don’t trigger this action (selecting the + button) we don’t touch or look at your pics at all …and we don’t have an auto-upload function in Lifecake, so no danger there either.

                                          Sorry for the trouble.

                                          Remove request to access my photos on IPhone app via privacy. I view Lifecake but yr upgrade is requesting access. Why?
