  1. Android TV compatible

    The app would be awesome on a big screen in landscape. Currently it shows up facing the wrong way.

      Hey Benjamin! Thanks for the feedback. Earlier this month we released an update with an initial Chromecast extension. We’d love your (and others) feedback on how we can improve this feature.

    • keep doing exactly what you are doing

      I love this app so, so much. Thank you for allowing me to share things with our family and friends all around the world.

        Hey Linnea! How could I have not gotten back to you sooner on this suggestion :) Many thanks. We have a ton of ideas we’re excited to build to make the product even better.

      • Surface Old Content

        I'd love to see a simple 'old content' feature when I log into Lifecake ~ perhaps even a little like Timehop? (http://timehop.com/)

        In the early days, it could be previous days or throwbacks to pre-birth photos, and then as the weeks and months roll on, you could do some great 'throw back' resurfacing.

        Perhaps it's already in the works?

        • Change timestamp should be more obvious

          Right now it's a bit tricky to figure out where the timestamp can be changed for two reasons: 1) the annotation on the bottom of the photo is easily missed and 2) the text doesn't seem to indicate that it's the timestamp of the photo

          • improve your timeline design (how many times do I need to suggest this?)

            Please just display all photos in the timeline - none of this ridiculous 'minor' photos below that one then doesn't notice.
            Such a primitive way of displaying photos - I wish my daughter would switch to a website that is more user friendly, where ALL photos are just in a grid and there is no limit of how many photos can be uploaded per day.
            Sorry, but it's not working as you have it at the moment and on mobile is even worse (can't even see the photos in a timeline, only per day)

              Hi. Thanks for your suggestion.

              If you go to m.lifecake.com, there is a ‘Sign in’ button in the top right. If you enter your email and password you will get a grid of every photo and video.

              Have a good day.

            • Enable user to drag photos in a slideshow to re-order them

              A simple drag option to change to order of photos in a slideshow would be great, as would an option to simply show them in date order.

                Hi, Lisa-Jayne! Is this on the iPhone for music slideshows? If so, once you’ve selected your images and are on the ‘Edit’ screen, if you tap-and-hold an image with your finger for a few seconds, you’ll be able to then move that image around to re-order it.

                If this isn’t what you mean, please let us know!

              • Import images from other Websites

                It would be really cool to be able to import certain photos albums I have on Picasa and Facebook, but to be able to select which ones and not bring them all in.

                Is something like that planned?

                • Email accents

                  Hi!
                  I'm french, and in french, names can have accents like é, ë, è, etc.
                  In all email notifications, I see strange characters (like �) instead of accents.
                  Could you be more international?

                    • Lifecake as a 'nanny diary/log' - is it possible?

                      I love Lifecake. I've introduced it to friends and family with kids and they love it too.
                      I'm about to start a nanny share with a friend; 1 nanny looks after both babies together. I'd like a digital diary where the nanny can log and share headlines of the day; activities, accidents, what they ate, naps & ideally pic of the babies too. I want it to be secure. I want to be able to invite people - my husband, my nanny, the other child's parents to use it too. I don't want or need anyone else to access the…

                        Hi Lucie! You absolutely can use Lifecake for this – my wife and I have this very set-up with our child minder. You’ll see that we have a ‘story’ function within the apps where any parent/relative/family member or nanny can write anything they wish. Thanks, Ed

                        • I really appreciate a company with the insight to develop a feature like that

                          Just met Lifecake tonight in response to an invitation from a relative and fellow Mom. So far, I am impressed and, after trying it out initially, see myself signing up for the unlimited storage at some point. One thing in particular that I like (in addition to the not sharing/selling our info and content, and advertising) is the "handbrake" feature. I SO wish Facebook had something like that. I've been wanting to leave them for so long, but all of my photo and video albums with their captions, dates, and etc are on there. I feel trapped and frustrated. Not…

                            • Thanks

                              I'm seriously loving this app and website. I like that it's more private than Facebook, and that I don't have to worry about annoying my non-mommy friends with all the sweet photos of my son that I want to keep forever. I added my mother, and she says that this is much easier than sifting through "all the Facebook garbage." So, thanks for putting an ad on Facebook where I would see it!

                                That’s so great to hear, Marcia! Feedback like this really motivates our team :-)

                                Do let us know if you’d ever be interested in being part of a special group whom we send occasional (once a month at most) concepts to to get feedback for potential new features. And if you have any things you’d love to see in Lifecake, please let us know!

                                I think it sounds awful. Maybe even "add another person/family member"..... Kid makes it sound tacky and a little chavvy. Sorry. Great app otherwise :)

                                  Hi, Emily! You are completely right, and we are changing this. Android will be change in the next day, and our iPhone/iPad app will be changed in the next 5 days. (Our Website already says ‘Add child’).

                                  Thanks for raising this! Please keep the suggestions coming :-)

                                  • Highlight new unseen photos

                                    This Christmas, our precious little one was a 12 day jetsetter to multiple grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles & friends homes. Currently, there are 8 of us with access to upload photos. While I appreciate the email that tells me how many photos each person uploaded, what I would really like is a way to identify the newly added photos (that could technically go back several weeks when folks are doing "catch up uploads).

                                    For example, it would be great if when I logged on today, there was either a tab to take me to photos unseen prior to today, or…

                                      HI! Sorry this took us longer than expected to have it everywhere, but now on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android and our Website you can see a ’What’s New’ section. This will show all the latest content, comments and faves from the family.

                                      Please let us know if you have any trouble accessing this or have suggestions on ways to improve it!

                                    • Change date / Rotate

                                      It would be great to be able to manually change the date of the photo or drag and drop it in the correct day. For some reason some of my uploads are staying in TODAY.

                                      Also it would be really helpful if we could rotate the image once it was uploaded.

                                      • Keep up the Great Work!

                                        I dont "check in" here everyday, nor am I posting life moments everyday (yet), but I keep coming back to lifecake and I love this app/resource/program/life-hack more and more every time I use it!

                                        Thank you,
                                        Jori Brown
