  1. Slideshow

    Can you make the slideshow/flashbacks more editable, for example choosing weather to go from birth onwards or from the present backwards, and being able to add music etc.

      • Make it possible to schedule publications

        I'm a distant relative, and I usually like to post photos of gifts to my niece's Lifecake. However, there's way to upload and scheudle a later time to post. This would come in handy for those of us on the run!

        • AirPlay and Casting integration

          It would be great if the app integrated with AirPlay and casting for Google Chromecast. The ability to view videos and photos on your home tv makes for a great family viewing experience. Our son loves watching the videos of him, but watching them on the phone is such a small experience. Being able to view them on a large screen tv would be great.

          If there was a way to AirPlay or cast Flashbacks that would be a great way to view your child's progress. It's also an easy way to put pictures of your child at their birthday…

            • allow name changes for family members

              When I signed up my family, my father appeared as "Daddy" as that was his contact name on my phone. Now, there is no way for me to change his name, and he is not my child's father. FURTHERMORE my husband was added to the app using his phone number, and instead of referring to him by his name, it treats him as a 10-digit number.

                  • Choose who can download content and who cannot

                    It would be nice to be able to select who is able to download content and who cannot. For example, I would like to select which users can download the entire library and individual images. This would be very useful as some viewers of my library I dont want having complete access to download the library

                    • Expand thumbnail

                      When I take several of the same picture essentially I want to choose the best. It's hard to distinguish the pictures as tiny thumbnails. Please provide an option to expand the size of the thumbnail to improve selection to upload to lifecake.

                        • Photo editing tools within the product

                          At the moment you have to crop or amend the colours or add text/stickers to a photo before you upload it. If you could crop pics in this app it would be a lot better.

                            Hi.

                            We’d love to introduce photo editing tools in the app. If this requests gets some good traction, we’ll escalate it’s priority in our list of todos.

                            Huge thanks,
                            Ed & the Lifecake team.

                          • plz can you add my grandchild

                            instead of just the option on the sign up page choose from my child

                            • Title pictures

                              Is there anyway to title a picture so it reads along the bottom of the picture

                              For example: picture of a baby sleeping and you want to write something like "was crying all day, but not anymore"

                              Something along those lines.

                                • Compare baby photos from the same age

                                  I use Lifecake for my baby, and one of my friends uses Lifecake for her baby. It would be very fun if there were an option to display our kids' Lifecake photos according to their ages in the photos as opposed to displaying them according to the date the photo was taken. That way, I'd have the option of seeing photos of my baby girl at 3 months old next to the pics of her baby at 3 months old. Adding this as an option would be really great. (I imagine families with multiple children would also love this option…

                                  • Updates for my children/other children

                                    Whenever I check the app for updates/alerts of new uploaded pictures, favorites, or comments, I am required to refresh the alert page. The previous design did not require a refresh, as that was almost always ready when i started the app.

                                    I also find it annoying to have to refresh my children and the other children separately.

                                    • Make the photos searchable by keyword

                                      It would help if I can search pictures by keywords for when I want to show people a specific picture, especially if it's an older picture.

                                      • Re-introduce the features removed from the book builder (date and title of image)

                                        Having just looked at the new book builder and what it produces, I'm afraid I don't agree that it got better. I can't comment on the quality of the images when printed, but there was nothing wrong with these before.
                                        The main problems with the old book builder were:
                                        * You couldn't add stories, or comments to the book.
                                        * You could only have one image per page.

                                        Both issues are still there. And to make it worse, the information that was added before about the photo, the date and the title, is no longer added.
                                        I would have to…

                                        • Title of photos - please make it more than 50 characters

                                          Before some of the most recent app updates, Lifecake allowed you to add a title to photos and videos with no restrictions on the amount of words. Now we are limited to 50 characters which is extremely restrictive. Why the change? In years to come we will want to remember who was in the photo with our child and where it was taken and for what occasion. Please bring back unlimited characters for titles - and for comments. Thanks
