  1. Change the "Story" Font

    The font used for the "Story" feature doesn't match the beautiful aesthetic of the rest of the site. It looks underdeveloped. I recommend changing the font, or allowing users to specify a font and a color.

    Thanks! We’ll look into this and get back to you.

  2. Give admins control over notification defaults

    The admin (me) should set up the notification defaults for people whom I add. My mom and dad and other elderly relatives aren't technologically savvy, and so when I add them, they'll get notifications on their smartphones as well as an email. I know them well enough to know that they don't want both, so it would be kind of nice if I could remotely set their notification preferences with an understanding that they could make changes if they decided to figure out how to do that.

    Thanks a lot, Marcia! We will discuss this and see if there might be a way to do this in a simple way. We absolutely understand the desire to tailor communications for family members.

  3. support uploading from flickr

    Do you plan to support flickr in the near future?

    Hi, Ross! Thanks for the question.

    We plan to, but we’re just checking how many votes the idea gets to decide on when we do it. We’ll update you here when we’re sure. And sorry for the delay in the meantime.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

    Thanks a lot, Jake. What ideally would you like to be able to edit these to?

    Thanks for the feedback!

  6. 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

  7. 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!

  9. 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?

  10. 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?

  11. Choose thumbnail

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

    Hi! So glad you’re enjoying lifecake :-)
    Are you using it on your iPhone? And would you ideally like to be able to drag a photo (or video or story) and put it at the front of the day?

  12. Portrait mode to view pictures in iPad

    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!

  13. 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

    Hi! So sorry for the delay in responding.

    Are you referring to the ’What’s New’ area in our apps or Website? And ideally you’d like those comments to be filtered when you filter the timeline for children?

  15. 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!

    Hi! Thanks for the suggestion. What format would you ideally like this video in? As a DVD or some other portable format?

    Thanks for the feedback!

  18. 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.
