  1. Upload order is backwards

    when uploading photos, it would be very helpful if the order of photos within Lifecake were the same as on my iPhone's camera roll.

    Hi! We’ve had a lot of debate about this within the team …and a lot of talking with mums and dads. The overall consensus was that, for speed and convenience purposes, it makes sense for the newest moments to be found at the top. However, let’s see how popular this point is and whether we need to revisit our thinking here. Thanks, Ed

  2. Allow changing/editing of "days, weeks and months"

    Instead of having a set "12 weeks" or "day one" you should be able to edit this.

  3. Slideshow with music is great but...

    every song I selected was copyright . Can you filter so only available songs are shown?

    Hi Jim! Thanks for the suggestion – it makes total sense and we’ll definitely investigate whether this is possible with a workaround. Today, we’re allowed access to the music you have in iTunes and we’re only given the copyright alert once you make your selection.

    Thanks,
    Ed

  4. comments

    It would be nice if user could configure comments to show when in the timeline view instead of having to drill into a particular photo. Maybe when mouse over comment icon on desktop or touch pic on mobile devices.

    Hi Jim! Thanks a lot for this. It’s a really interesting idea that could certainly have a place on the bigger screen – tablets, computer. We’re unable to tackle it now but let’s see how it gets on in the voting.

    Hi, Emma! Thanks a lot for this.

    Currently when you import content into our apps – from the phone, tablet, computer or Web accounts – we automatically put moments into your child(ren)’s timeline(s) at the right date. Is this what you mean?

    We do sometimes face issues with detecting the date the moment was captured, as many apps remove or alter this data. Which is frustrating.

    Please let us know a bit more about what you’re suggesting, and we’ll get right back to you.

    Thanks!

  6. Add landscape mode for typing comments

    Hi! Would you be able to make the app able to turn into landscape mode to make typing easier?

  7. Sort the "Add Photos and Video" source list by most used, or allow hiding of sources that aren't used.

    When adding photos, it would be great to either hide sources that I don't use (like Facebook, Picasa, and Instagram) or to sort the list by most frequently used sources.

    I realize that you can just click "All photos and videos" but its still visual clutter for those that don't use those services.

    Hi Eugene! Thanks for this suggestion. You make a really good point and we have some ideas about tackling this. Is your default album typically ‘camera roll’ or do you source from other albums equally?

  8. Choose thumbnail

    I'm just fascinated with this app but pleaseee let us choose the thumbnail we want for each day! thanks!

    Hi, Ed! Thanks a lot for this and sorry for the delay in responding. This is definitely a feature we’d like to add in the future, and we will update here when we have it.

    Thanks for your patience in the meantime!

  10. Support common raw files

    It would be great if you supported common raw files. I was hoping to use lifecake both to share and backup photos but it's much less useful if I have to convert as well as have a secondary backup to keep my originals safe

  12. Exclude low-resolution images from photo book layouts

    If you add photos from e.g. Instagram, the photos are too small to print well in a photo book, so if you auto-populate (e.g. my child's first year) it puts all the images in but with warnings about print quality - you then have to remove each one rather laboriously. It might make sense to exclude any images which are under the required print resolution, or at least allow filtering by size in the drop down underneath the drawer.

    Thanks, Meg! We usually exclude lower-resolution photos by default, but do you have a lot more than 100? If it’s still showing lower resolution ones even when you have higher quality photos to choose from, then we might need to investigate to make sure we don’t have a bug.

    Please let us know if you get a chance. Thanks so much!

    Hi, Khilna! Thanks a lot for the suggestion. We like that song, too :-)

    We don’t currently have a specific way to track songs, but for our kids and nephews and nieces we actually use the story option to write the name of the song and any details. (I also added a video of my nephew singing his favourite song -‘Rocket man’ by Elton John – and my other nephew dancing to his favourite song, Kaya).

    But we’d love to add even more ways to capture these in the future. Please keep the great suggestions coming!

  14. Buy Videos

    It would be great if you can make and order videos....just an idea

  15. When you untick another family members added child, the associated comments should disappear as well as pics

    Once you have accepted an invitation from a family member to add their child to your timeline you see their pictures and comments alongside your own. If you just want to then view your own childs pics you can untick any other child names and the pics disappear leaving just your child, but all their comments are still there.

    Hi, Greg! Thanks a lot for the idea.

    We’ve had a few requests to make it easier to bring everything over from Picasa (or Facebook or Instagram). We’re looking into the best way to do this, and we’ll let you know when we’ll have that.

    Please keep the great ideas coming!

    Nick from the Lifecake team

  19. Perhaps add a last initial to the name for a member that is commenting on a photo when there are duplicate names on one account.

    For example I have an Aunt Mary and a Grandma Mary. When either of them comments or likes a photo, it just says 'Mary commented on a new photo.' So it can be tricky to figure out which Mary had left a message. Is it possible to add a last initial--Mary R ?? Or maybe when a new member accepts an invite and they have a duplicate name, they could be prompted to type how they could be identified--'Aunt Mary' for example. I have to say though, my entire family ADORES lifecake :) thank you lifecake team!!

    This is a really interesting idea, Christina! We’ll have a think about how we can do this.

    In the meantime, if you get the latest version of lifecake from the App Store, if you tap on the ‘Share with Family’ section, you can then see all your family. If you tap on one of them – maybe Grandma Mary – you can give them a nickname. Only you will see this, but it might at least help you distinguish the two for the time being!

    Thanks for the great idea – we’ll get back on this one.

  20. allow title/description for a group of photos

    If you are updating a bunch of memories from a single event (e.g. day at the beach), it would be nice if you could add a title and/or description for the whole group of photos, rather than having to title each photo. The title for the group could also be displayed on the timeline (perhaps with an on/off toggle) so you could quickly know where the photos were from.

    Thanks a lot, Jed. We’ve discussed this quite a lot as a team before – some of us have wanted exactly this when we’ve been adding events to our kids’ lifecakes.

    We are not sure when we might have this, but we will keep you updated when it might be coming.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
