    • 'Hide' the wording "Discover our new print products!" from the heading of every message.

      When I see a message from you in the inbox on my iPhone I see who it's from, e.g. "Steffy commented on Joshua Michael's timeline", but then I get two lines of advertising saying "Discover our new print products!"
      This means that I have open the message to read what Steffy has said.
      I think that it is possible for you to "hide" all of the opening text [inside some sort of picture frame?] so that the iPhone message preview shows the opening words of what Steffy has said. Then I can choose to see the whole message (with advertising…

      • Ever-present notification icon in new iOS app

        Ever since the new update I can't check my notifications, even though it says I have some (red dot over the bell). Please fix this!

          Hi
          So sorry for the trouble. This should now have been fixed so we’d love to hear from your at support@lifecake.com if that is not the case. It was tied to a bug that prevented your access to What’s New view. Please do let us know if you still have issues here.

          Many thanks,
          The Lifecake team.

        • Photobook Customization

          Hello,
          I love the Lifecake app and one of the reasons I chose it is due to the capability of creating a photobook. However, after using the app for several months now, I realize that there are significant limitations with the photobooks. You can only put one picture per page and there is a cap at 100 pages. I would like to do a photobook of my son's first year of life, but am not able to do one with the current limitations. Are you going to expand the photobook options to allow multiple pictures on one page and additional…

            Hello,

            You can create photobooks via the Lifecake Web with more than one photo per page. You can also add text and choose the format for your book.

            Please let us know if you have further questions.

            Have a great day,
            The Lİfecake team.

          • Disable the App to ask the last taken photos

            the app constantly asks me to add photo after I have taken new photo with my phone, so annoying

              • Play video sounds on mute

                ''Videos in my phone's photo album play based on the volume on the phone and aren't tied to the ringer. In fact, most apps play based on the sound volume.

                Maybe you could put an in app toggle on the settings page to allow videos to play with sound while on vibrate/mute mode? ''

                • Allow users to set specific start and end dates for a book instead of just the months

                  ''Please add the option to retrieve more pictures for a photobook. I set the months that I wanted to see, but it did not retrieve everything that I expected it to. I created my book only to get to the end and discover that I was missing pictures. Now I have to start over and create a whole new book because I can't edit the current one. A waste of time.

                  • Offering multiple quality choices for the photobook

                    You would be better offering multiple choices (i.e SD as well as HD) for those who cannot afford it. Do you think you would consider offering different options?

                        Hi Linda. So sorry for the confusion on this. It was a mistake – where you’re NOT a parent in Lifecake, you should only be asked for Camera Roll access IF you initiate the upload flow. We are fixing this and it will be released in the next 2 weeks.

                        In the mean time, please do note that by granting us permission, it just allows us to display your photos in ‘select view’ should you wish to upload a photo/video. It you don’t trigger this action (selecting the + button) we don’t touch or look at your pics at all …and we don’t have an auto-upload function in Lifecake, so no danger there either.

                        Sorry for the trouble.
                        Ed & the Lifecake team.

                        Ideally, I would like to build a book from scratch. I would like to move photos one by one into the book. As currently configured, the book appears to populate all photos and I need to delete those I do not want.

                        • don't like new look of website

                          I am really not enjoying the new look of the website. I'm not sure if it is on a mobile view setting or something but the photos seem hidden and it doesn't show such a vibrant, fun timeline as before. I joined life cake because I loved how simple it was, I feel it is a real shame that it has changed and am finding it hard to use the site now.

                          • Prevent 'uploads paused'

                            So when you're uploading a few images or a video, particularly over a slower network, it'd be nice if there was a setting to just 'continue uploading until the job is done'.

                            At the moment you've got to sit there and babysit the process until all uploads have finished. Compare this with a service like Google Photos where it sits in the background and runs til the end.

                              Hi Rob

                              We do as much here as iOS allows us. If you keep the app in the foreground, the uploads will process (and whilst in upload mode the app doesn’t let the device go to sleep). However, once you move the app into the background, iOS will ‘kill’ the app from running in the background after 3 mins (they do this to everyone’s app – not just ours!). One final point to note is that if your device does go to sleep – on going back into Lifecake, the uploads should ‘take off’ from where you left them (rather than the whole process reinitiating).

                              Hope this makes sense,
                              The Lifecake team.

                                    • Able to order photo book/photos from the App

                                      Be able to create your photo book (or even prints) using the app from your phone.
                                      I do not have a computer to create a photo book on, I'm sure others are in the same boat too. Plus, it would be easier! :)

                                        • No suggestion, just really love the redesign of the site!

                                          The redesign of the site is a lot more user-friendly. I love that all the pictures are visible. Thank you!
