  1. make it possible for members to see who they've invited as a list.

    Us baby brained people cant remember everything! So if there was a list of people we've invited along with who's joined it would make it easier!

  2. make it easy to develop single photos from within the app/web site

    Add a feature so that you can develop single photos directly without downloading and without having to make a full book. Or is there already an easy way?

  3. Import from Dropbox & YouTube

    Hi

    Correct me if I am wrong but are the files for lifecake hosted on the Amazon servers? If so, so are the files from dropbox and using their API I don't think it would be too difficult to create an option to import from dropbox and the transfer speed would be quicker than say importing from your computer as they are on the same servers?

    Also I think the service is more geared towards images and photo's, maybe due to keeping costs down? But it would be a great option to be able to import video from youtube (user…

    Hi, Nick! You can now import from Dropbox on both iPhone and Android. Give it a try!

    We haven’t had many requests for YouTube – as it’s such a public platform – but if we get requests for that we will look to add it.

  4. List of new pictures after login

    Need to list new pictures recently uploaded (as they might be older in date and further back in the stream)

  6. Download photo option on Android platform

    Both the desktop website and the iOS app have the abilities to 'add to camera roll', or otherwise effectively download a particular photo. On Android devices, however, this option is distinctly absent.

    It would be cool to have this feature on Android too without having to do some major fiddling to otherwise perform the action (involving lots of cursing and taking screenshots...)

    Hi! Just to let you know that the Android download to camera roll feature is now in place in the most recent update.

    Hope you like it.

    Have a great day!

  7. Keep sizing of photos originally uploaded.

    Keep sizing of photos originally uploaded. After uploaded and viewed on full view some pictures are too big and cannot see entire frame. Some pictures are also shrunken down to their pre cropped , prior to upload position, despite being uploaded correctly.

    Hi, Melissa! So sorry for the delay, but this should be sorted now. When you tap on portrait (vertically-aligned) photos to view them on your iPhone they should fill the screen by default – as the Camera Roll does – but if you ‘reverse pinch’ then you can see the entire photo.

    Can you let us know if this isn’t working exactly as you’d like or expect it to now?

    Thanks!

    Hi, Katie! So sorry for the delay, but you can do this. If you go to www.lifecake.com on your computer and sign in, you will see a little book icon above the timeline on the right side. If you click on this you will get an option to create a book, and you can even choose others in your family as recipients. If you do, we will auto-create a book with their favorites.

    Please have a try when you get a chance – you can create a book without ordering one, just to try it – and let us know what you think.

    Thanks!

  9. Great changes to Lifecake! Would also be useful when selecting pictures from Camera Roll to be able to view a large version of the picture

    Picking THE pic from the hundreds that I take (!) is difficult as I can only see the tiny thumbnail pic and can't see the subtleties of expressions. It would be useful to be able to see a larger pic, so I can pick the best picture without having to leave the app, go to Camera Roll, work out which is the best pic then return to Lifecake.

  12. daily update digests

    You should offer people an option for a daily digest update of "Loves" and "messages". This would allow me to see what happens on the account over the course of a day without having my inbox flooded as people love every pictures! :)

  13. More Size Options for Photo Books

    Currently there is only an 80 page photo book option. Would it be possibly to have smaller sizes as an option? Such as 25 pages? I have a newborn son and I would love to give photo books for as birthday gifts to my family but I don't yet have enough photos to fill an 80 page photo book. It would also be great to capture specific times or events in the child's lives.

    Hi, Raquel! Thanks a lot for your question.

    The good news is that you can make books smaller than 80 pages. That’s just our default size. But you can actually make it 40 pages, if you’d like (and correspondingly less). We don’t do less than that as our hardcover books don’t feel quite right in the hand if they are less than that, and we want our products to feel great.

    We hope this helps, but please let us know if that isn’t what you’re after!

  14. Highlight new unseen photos

    This Christmas, our precious little one was a 12 day jetsetter to multiple grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles & friends homes. Currently, there are 8 of us with access to upload photos. While I appreciate the email that tells me how many photos each person uploaded, what I would really like is a way to identify the newly added photos (that could technically go back several weeks when folks are doing "catch up uploads).

    For example, it would be great if when I logged on today, there was either a tab to take me to photos unseen prior to today, or…

    HI! Sorry this took us longer than expected to have it everywhere, but now on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android and our Website you can see a ’What’s New’ section. This will show all the latest content, comments and faves from the family.

    Please let us know if you have any trouble accessing this or have suggestions on ways to improve it!

  15. Re-order the same book

    It would be great if you could choose a book you'd previously made and then reprint it to send to another family member.

    Hi, Michelle! Thanks a lot for the suggestion. We’ve now added this ability. When you go into our book builder on our Website, you’ll see an option – when you click on the Book button – to re-order books you’ve made (even ones you made before we had this feature) and you can also use this to save books in progress.

    Enjoy! And please keep the suggestions coming.

  16. Enable editing of books in multiple sittings

    I'd love the ability to start a book but continue creating it at a later time.

  17. Push notifications for new content

    The one thing I'd really like push notifications for is when another member of the family adds new content as new content can sometimes be buried or not immediately obvious on the home screen. At the moment, I don't find out until the end of the week when the email arrives. This would be particularly nice when I'm working away from home or the kids are on holiday with the grandparents.

  19. Allow all photos from 1 day to be viewed in timeline.

    I would like all the photo's that I have posted for 1 day to be view in the timeline instead of clicking the green box under the photo to view the other photos. Currently, you can only view 3 or 4 photos in the timeline for any particular day. This also goes for the iPhone. Maybe a setting to allow or not allow this would be helpful.

  20. More information on e-mail invite

    A lot of the people who I invited from the android app deleted the invitation because they thought it was spam. I had to chase them up to tell them it was a legit invite.
