    • 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,

              • 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!

                • Great changes to Lifecake! Would also be useful when selecting pictures from Camera Roll to be able to view a large version of the picture

                  Picking THE pic from the hundreds that I take (!) is difficult as I can only see the tiny thumbnail pic and can't see the subtleties of expressions. It would be useful to be able to see a larger pic, so I can pick the best picture without having to leave the app, go to Camera Roll, work out which is the best pic then return to Lifecake.

                  • Keep sizing of photos originally uploaded.

                    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!

                    • provide an uninvite function

                      I do not think there is currently a way to remove a friend or family member once they have accepted the invite? Although you would hope never to need such a function, I imagine there will be circumstances which warrant it.

                        Hi, Jo! Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

                        We actually have this today – the ability to remove someone’s access – but it’s not as clear as we’d like.

                        On your phone or iPad you can click on Sharing – or on our Website on your computer, you can click on the ‘Family and friends’ button at the top of the site – and then you can select an existing content. Then you can change the permissions to ‘None’ for permissions.

                        But we will look to make this simpler!

                        I didn't add my husband as the other admin when I set this account up; I assumed I could go back and add him later after I checked his email address. I'd like him to have the same admin control as me. Is this possible?

                          Hi, Jo!

                          Absolutely. If you share your lifecake with your husband, just be sure to add him with the rights to:
                          ‘Comment, Add, Edit’.

                          He will than have the same parental controls you do.

                          If you have any questions or other suggestions, please let us know!

                            Hi! With the latest version of our iPhone app in the App Store, you can now download full-res images from your lifecake.

                            To update: Just go to the App Store app on your phone and check for updates.

                            To download: Tap on whichever content you want to download in lifecake, and then tap on the arrow in the bottom left.

                            We’ll be adding this to the Website and Android apps later.

                            Thanks for the suggestion!

                          • Make captions more clearly visible in app

                            Have you all thought about making the captions for photos more visible in the iphone and Android apps? In the iphone app, you only see them when you click on the picture in slideshow mode, and in the Android app, I can't figure out how to see it at all. It would be awesome if the caption just appeared in white along the bottom of each picture automatically-- it's a big part of the story/context for the images.

                              Hi, Angie! In the latest Android version you can now see captions – and you can even add or edit them directly in the app.

                              We’re working on ways to make them even more visible in the main timelines for our Website and apps.
                              Enjoy!

                              Hi, I would love to be able to flick through all the images instead of having to come out of each day's album and then choose another one.

                              Perhaps linking the albums would be a good idea? You could give the option to View Next Day/Album/Week/Month?

                                Hi, all! This is now possible on iPhone and iPad, too. Just download the latest version from the App Store, and when you’re viewing content full-screen you can keep scrolling left or right across days.

                                Happy viewing!
