    • 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.

      • Filter by Likes

        It would be handy to filter or list photos that have been liked by a particular individual. For example, I am getting prints made for my grandmother and would like to quickly see which photos have been liked by her as I make my selections.

          • 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

            • 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.

              • Simply click next to view the next item after viewing a video.

                Since short phone videos are scattered amongst photos, a viewer shouldn't have to go back to the home page after watching a video. A viewer should just be able to move on to the next photo.

                • Add a web-based "screensaver" feature

                  I see there are some other screensaver feature requests already around. It would be really cool if you would create some integrations for Mac and Windows to easily use Lifecake as a screensaver, but:

                  Something easier for you I think would be to do a "web screensaver"; enter a fullscreen random timed display mode on the website. This would be kind of nice since I have multiple monitors at work; I could keep a maximized browser window open that would show me pictures, and when I need to use that screen I could just switch tabs or something.

                    • 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.

                      • Review the set up process

                        Immediately upon joining and starting the account for my baby (due in a few months..) the app prompted me to upload 12 photos. There was no way around it and no way to proceed without uploading a full 12 instead of just 2-3 ultrasound pics as I wanted. This made for an incredibly poor first user experience. Not sure if this was some sort of glitch for now or what but while I seem to like the interface of Lifecake more than any other program I’ve played with, it was incredibly annoying and I’m not likely to choose this one…

                        • allow users to be able to create new folders as people require, not just for different children

                          Hi,
                          I wanted to create a fresh folder for my child's second year. This would allow me to search more easily (I intended to create one for every year of his life - I imagine searching will become a complete pain by the time he reaches 18!) but also allows me to have different family and friends at different times of his life accessing the photos.
                          It would also be nice to be able to set up separate folders for holidays or specific events where i can then let different friends and family access who may or may not be…

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • Is it possible to revert back to the last version? The new update seems to feature the likes/comments more and not the pictures themselves.

                                We chose lifecake to share our kids' photos because it's both private and it's main focus is on the photos. The latest update has a bunch of white space between photos on the picture feed that shows how many likes/comments each picture has. So annoying to see when we just want to be able to scroll through and see pictures of our family. Is it possible to uninstall the latest update so that our photo page looks like it used to? Or can the next update make the photo viewing page just show photos and not all the likes/comments between…

                                • 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.

                                      I keep getting a "cannot upload your moments" message when trying to upload video.

                                      This message offers no way of resolving this or even an inkling as to why. Extremely frustrating.

                                      Make a guide or an FAQ so people can try to fix this issue on their own; and not have to wait for customer support.

                                        It would we awesome if you could provide tasteful backgrounds, icons, stickers that we could incorporate into the timeline, such as sucking thumbs, grabbing, crawling, smiling, monthly/annual backgrounds, Mother's Day, Father's Day etc...

                                        • Make Lifecake for groups of friends too.

                                          There are 22 of us in one big group of friends and we go on holiday together, weddings, just go for a beer. It'd be amaaaazing to have a place to store all of our memories and group them into events/people.
