  1. More space for titles

    I would like for it to allow you to put more words on the title.

  2. Ages shown

    I love seeing the age of my child in the pics (years, months, days), but would really also like to see the ages for each of my kids that are in the photos.

    Hi. Thanks for the feedback. I assume you are referring to Detail View here. It’s a really interesting request – our only fear is that it could potentially ‘clutter’ the view a little. Let’s see how our users vote on this – if it gets good traction we’ll certainly prioritise.

    Thanks,
    The Lifecake team.

  7. Allow the ability to download a selection of photos

    Rather than only being allowed to download all photos or download one by one, I'd like to be able to download a selection of photos. If we take a trip and I want to download only pictures from the trip, or I go through and select all the pictures with our family dog that I want to download, etc., this would be a great feature to have.

  8. Show the number of photos

    I would highly suggest to add a photo-calculator feature on your app since you offer albums of ~80 pages and one photo per page..

  10. Support for animated gifs (like auto awesome from google plus)

    We backup all photos (including non child) to Google Plus, and sometimes it creates sweet and beautiful animated photos. I tried to upload to Lifecake and the preview during uploaded was animated, but then once added the gif became static.

    Gifs are a standard format already supported by all browsers and mobile phones, please preserve the format for lifecake photos.

    Hey Eddie. Thanks for the feedback. We definitely could support animated gifs – it is really just a question of where we focus our resources. We’ll keep an eye on the number of votes this gets and shall keep you posted.

  11. Change the default notification setting

    Lifecake's default notification should NOT automatically assume each profile wants to see every picture and comment that is uploaded for each child. This is completely asinine. Your notification instantly becomes trash in my eyes because you do nothing but spam my email inbox.

  13. have the option to view the age of the child or the date of the photo on the website as is possible in the android app

    I really like lifecake and especially like the fact that you can have the age of the child rather than the date of the photo in the app. However, it is disappointing that this is not possible on the website which is the only platform that many family members use. This makes it harder for them to see how old the child is in each photo and see how much they've changed. It would be great if the website functioned like the app in showing either the age of the child or the date the photo was taken. Seeing how…

    Hey Gemma. Thanks so much for the feedback. You are completely right – we’re missing a big trick not making more of a child’s age in the web timeline.

    So, we’re in the middle of a big update to fix that. It should be ready in the next month.

    Thanks,
    Ed

  14. Build a version which works on a Samsung Smart TV.

    I see that Facebook has a smart tv version of their app. It would be great if Likecake had a similar facility.

  15. Different Notification Settings Per Child

    Have a different setting for every child following. I have started following a friend's child in addition to my own. I like being notified daily about things for my child, but only want the weekly update for my friend's child. Can we have notification settings be different for every child?

  16. Make nicknames universal

    i think that nicknames set by the parents should be the names that show for anyone looking at the account. For example, if my brother created his account with just his name, Matt, but I put his nickname as Uncle Matt, everyone should see his name as Uncle Matt when he loves a moment or makes a comment.

    Hi, Sarah! Thanks so much for this (and sorry for the delay in responding). Seems to be getting a lot of votes.

    We didn’t do this currently because we know in many families people have their own personal nicknames for people (i.e. ‘Grandma’ for me is ‘Mum’ to my mother). This is our concern with making things universal.

    Also, who gets to decide what someone’s nickname is? If it’s personal, then there is no issue. But if it’s universal, then only one person can decide.

    Would love to know yours (and anyone else’s) thoughts on this!

    - Nick, from the Lifecake team

  19. Allow grouping of photos/stories under a heading

    Make it possible to create a heading, e.g. Freddie's First Christmas or Trip to the Seaside, and then make groups of photos/stories appear under the heading.

    Hey Alexandra! Thanks for the feedback and sorry for the delayed response. The team talk about this concept a lot – it idea of being able introduce ‘chapters’ or ‘phases’ to the timeline. We don’t yet have any fixed plans to implement this but will be doing a lot more thinking in this area.

  20. Creating Albums

    It would be nice to have the option of creating albums, which would be a way to organize some picture into sets of common topics.

    Hi, Patrice! So sorry for the delay in responding.

    We are planning a better system with tagging which will enable you to do exactly this. We will update you when we have more information.

    Thanks, and have a great day!
