  1. Allow me to opt out of Time Warp

    I don’t see the point of Time Warp. I do like notifications of new photos and videos, but it is disappointing to think there is something new when it is just urging me to check for a Time Warp. I would like to turn it off.

  2. Flashback

    I love the flashback video but it appears to zoom into the centre of the picture and often that’s isn’t where my child is positioned so you get a random edge of his face or he’s not in shot at all. Would be good if you can see the picture in full to see your child!

  3. Enable face recognition for timewarps.

    I don’t always post photos of my child’s face. Sometimes it’s a hand, or the back of the head, or the stats we got from the doctors office. Would be more meaningful if it was a true before and after and not just random.

  4. allow sorting by month.

    When I try to scroll back to earlier years, Lifecake often crashes. If I could specify what month/year I want to view, perhaps the site wouldn't have to load so many hundreds of photos and burn itself out.

  5. General information regarding photo books

    I love your app, and I like how easy it is to share photos with my family and how nice it is to have all of my photos organized so easily. Today I went to do my first photo album and was really disappointed in the photo album function of this app. You can't do any cute back grounds or organize photos differently or write much to customize the photo book. Furthermore, your cost for a photo book is much more expensive than other sites. I want to see you succeed because I love your app and would love to…

  6. Show children side by side at same age

    Hi
    It would be great if I could show the timelines of both of my children side-by-side, so I can see photos of each at the same age, even though they are 4 years apart. Or filter by child age or something so the timeline shows photos in child age order rather than in date order. I want to see what my daughter looked like at age 1 next to my son at the same age.

  7. Swipe down on a photo to close the detail view

    This seems pretty much standard for all apps that have a photo detail view nowadays, so consider adding the ability to swipe down on a photo to close it and go back to the timeline.

  8. Log in should default to username and password

    I shouldn't have to click through 4+ things just to get logged in to Lifecake. The default should be username and password, ideally on the main page already. Non standard methods of logging in should require further clicking, not the other way around.

  9. Add settings options to the Flashback function

    Add settings options to the Flashback function. Personally not a fan of the zoom and pan animation. A simple transition to the next image would be way better

  10. Be able to see how many people viewed a photo or video if they selected it

    I would like to see how many people viewed or played back a video/photo I posted. This gives me an idea of what to post in the future. This would only work if someone clicked on the image or photo.

  11. Create photo books automatically based on "favorited" photos.

    Allow users to select an option when creating photo books that includes year (which you already offer) and "favorites." The favorites option would automatically create a photo album with all the photos that have been "favorited" by you or family/friends who have joined the album. Since I have uploaded so many photos and spent time favoriting certain photos, it only makes sense to offer this convenient customization feature as an option.

  12. Create a filter so that you can see only videos / only photos or all. A great addition would be a video reel - auto playback of all videos.

    Videos are too hard to find - having to scroll through your many photos to find the few videos that you have is no fun!

    As a parent-Lifecake user I would like to select a filter so that I can see only videos / only photos or all. Preferably I would also be able to select which child I would like the filter to be applied to.

    A great addition would be a video reel - playback of all videos of your child from birth to the last video uploaded. Ideal when the family are over and you wish to…

  13. 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.

  14. Allow captions on photos

    Currently I can't see how to put any captions on photos, we are just writing in the comments of each photo. But it's not as impactful since you don't notice the comments right away and have to look further to see them.

  17. 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.

  18. Allow choosing a cover photo for videos

    What happens is, when I upload a video, the app randomly chooses a cover photo to display as the “thumbnail” for my video. The problem is, it’s not always the best photo of my baby or not an accurate representation of the theme of the video. It’d be best if we could choose a still image to choose as the representative of the full video. Thank you

    BTW thank you for bringing us this app for our children. It’s brilliant!

  20. Flip image

    Please add an ability to flip the image vertically or horizontally. Some phones with selphie cameras do not flip image correctly, it would be a great option that after upload you could flip it.
