  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Allow lifecakes for Friends and Family

    Its great that you can easily show the photos of a set or individual children, but wouldn't it make sense to have the parents and other family members or friends identified/filterable as well?

    I suppose I could add them as 'another child', but they might not be so keen on having their age displayed as a constant reminder of the decrepitude (I am including myself here).

    I suppose tags could be used, but I like the idea of seeing their little photo and selecting them.

    Thanks, Adam! We actually made the dates go way back in time, so people could do exactly that: create lifecakes for older family members. (One of our team is actually creating a lifecake for his grandpa for his 90th birthday present this summer :-)

    But we hadn’t thought about the birthdate being something people might not want to advertise, Good point! We will have a think about that at our team dinner on Monday and see what we can think of.

    Keep the great ideas coming!

  5. Support tags from other packages (Photoshop elements, Flickr etc...)

    I currently tag and star my photos in Photoshop elements and then upload into Flickr where I put the best photos into sets. Would be great if you could import these. (> 3 stars = lifecake favourite?) I currently use Photobox's Flickr integration to import sets into their albums for printing. 1-1 mapping between sets and albums makes it easy for me to find photos to print.

    Thanks, Jon! Part of our mission is to save people time, so we will definitely have a think about how we can inherit the work you do elsewhere when you import content, as long as those services share that information. (Unfortunately some apps are not so generous. We’ve seen quite a few apps that delete titles and dates from photos when exporting :-(

    Just to show you that we’re already thinking as you do, when you use our Desktop Uploader (available for free from our Website), if you drag in folders from your computer, we automatically tag content with the name of that folder. So, for example, if you drag in a folder called ‘Spain holiday’ to upload, we will tag all those photos with ‘Spain holiday’, so you can find them easily in lifecake.

    We’ll let you know when we have anything updated on this!

    Hi, Lawrence! Thanks for the suggestion.

    Do you see a username as better so you don’t have to give your email address?

    The reason we didn’t introduce usernames originally was because we got feedback from customers that they didn’t want to have to remember yet another username (as well as a password) for a service. With an email, it’s much easier to remember.

    So it would be good to understand your thoughts on how this would make things easier for people.

    Thanks!

  7. Option to have Description/title shown on photo timeline

    As you look at the Photoi in the timeline, it would be nice to be able to see the description/title as a caption under the image. This way you don't have to click on the image to see it. You should be able to turn this on and off for each photo.

  8. Mobile 'Slide Show' View

    On the iPhone app, allow seamless, fast viewing of pictures through a traditional chronological slide show view - ie, no delay when you switch days (similar to the facebook mobile photo viewer)

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    We actually have a slideshow mode, but just to see your ten favourite photos. To see this, start lifecake and shake your iPhone (or iPad), and we will show what we think are your ten favourite photos. Shake it again, and see ten more.

    But we’ll look into having a slideshow mode for the whole timeline!

  9. Change the title (tab) text

    In Chrome, all you can see is 'lifecake | all your childre' - at least on the tabs on my screen (Win7 laptop) - maybe for tabbed browsers it could just say 'lifecake | <name of child>'?

  10. Please keep draggable target while photos are uploading

    Right now once you drag the first picture or movie the draggable target disappears (replaced with status of current uploads). Please keep an area of the screen targetable so we can drag more pictures without having to close the window and open another one.
