  1. 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!

      • 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

            Hi! Yes – from any of our mobile or tablet clients and from web you can share a photo to Facebook. Hope this helps! 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…

            • 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.

              • 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!

                  Have a great day :—)

                    • Re-word "add a kid"

                      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 :-)

                      • Gallery including ALL photos

                        I would like a gallery including ALL photos, and not only the photos for a given day. In the timeline I can see just a preview all the photos, but if I want to see them all, I have to click on a day, the browse, then back to the time line to click on another day, etc. A bit anoying.

                              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!

                              • 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.

                                  Need to list new pictures recently uploaded (as they might be older in date and further back in the stream)

                                    • Download photo option on Android platform

                                      Both the desktop website and the iOS app have the abilities to 'add to camera roll', or otherwise effectively download a particular photo. On Android devices, however, this option is distinctly absent.

                                      It would be cool to have this feature on Android too without having to do some major fiddling to otherwise perform the action (involving lots of cursing and taking screenshots...)

                                        Hi! Just to let you know that the Android download to camera roll feature is now in place in the most recent update.

                                        Hope you like it.

                                        Have a great day!
                                        Ed

                                        Keep sizing of photos originally uploaded. After uploaded and viewed on full view some pictures are too big and cannot see entire frame. Some pictures are also shrunken down to their pre cropped , prior to upload position, despite being uploaded correctly.

                                          Hi, Melissa! So sorry for the delay, but this should be sorted now. When you tap on portrait (vertically-aligned) photos to view them on your iPhone they should fill the screen by default – as the Camera Roll does – but if you ‘reverse pinch’ then you can see the entire photo.

                                          Can you let us know if this isn’t working exactly as you’d like or expect it to now?

                                          Thanks!

                                            Hi, Katie! So sorry for the delay, but you can do this. If you go to www.lifecake.com on your computer and sign in, you will see a little book icon above the timeline on the right side. If you click on this you will get an option to create a book, and you can even choose others in your family as recipients. If you do, we will auto-create a book with their favorites.

                                            Please have a try when you get a chance – you can create a book without ordering one, just to try it – and let us know what you think.

                                            Thanks!
