  1. Add an additional parent

    I didn't add my husband as the other admin when I set this account up; I assumed I could go back and add him later after I checked his email address. I'd like him to have the same admin control as me. Is this possible?

      Hi, Jo!

      Absolutely. If you share your lifecake with your husband, just be sure to add him with the rights to:
      ‘Comment, Add, Edit’.

      He will than have the same parental controls you do.

      If you have any questions or other suggestions, please let us know!

    • provide an uninvite function

      I do not think there is currently a way to remove a friend or family member once they have accepted the invite? Although you would hope never to need such a function, I imagine there will be circumstances which warrant it.

        Hi, Jo! Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

        We actually have this today – the ability to remove someone’s access – but it’s not as clear as we’d like.

        On your phone or iPad you can click on Sharing – or on our Website on your computer, you can click on the ‘Family and friends’ button at the top of the site – and then you can select an existing content. Then you can change the permissions to ‘None’ for permissions.

        But we will look to make this simpler!

      • Don't close the gallery viewer when a photo is deleted

        It's a bit annoying that when I delete a photo, the gallery viewer closes and I have to find my way back to where I was to continue browsing through the photos if I want to delete some more.

        • Allow Users to Delete Photos

          Occasionally I will upload the wrong photo to my son's LifeCake-- like one that is out of focus or not the exact one I want. I noticed that even if I delete it from the LifeCake on my computer, it still shows up when my husband views LifeCake or when I look at my son's LifeCake on my Android phone. I think it would be a good idea to let the person who contributed the photo delete it so it doesn't show up to other viewers.

            Hi, Angie! Thanks for the feedback!

            Items you delete on your phone or computer will be deleted from others’ devices, but it will happen when they refresh their Website or app timelines. We will investigate ways to zap content without even doing refreshes, but in the meantime you can be sure that the content will be deleted.

            Thanks!

            Nick

          • Email accents

            Hi!
            I'm french, and in french, names can have accents like é, ë, è, etc.
            In all email notifications, I see strange characters (like �) instead of accents.
            Could you be more international?

            Thanks,

            • Email Links to iPhone App

              Is there any way to make the links in the update emails automatically open in the IPhone app when you read on an iPhone? Currently they seem to send us to the website, which is not enabled for mobile phones.

              • cropping on mobile site

                The photos look lovely on the desktop site, but scrolling down them on the mobile site, they're all cropped from the top so it's hard to see what they are until you open them individually. Perhaps they could be cropped from centre? Or have a crop option?
                Just a thought!

                • Preview images full size on iPhone

                  Would be really useful to be able to see the image(s) I want to publish in full size when choosing among all of them on my iPhone.
                  Sometimes, I take 4, 5, 6, even more photos of my child, and I cannot see which one I want to publish because they are too small.

                  • Make captions more clearly visible in app

                    Have you all thought about making the captions for photos more visible in the iphone and Android apps? In the iphone app, you only see them when you click on the picture in slideshow mode, and in the Android app, I can't figure out how to see it at all. It would be awesome if the caption just appeared in white along the bottom of each picture automatically-- it's a big part of the story/context for the images.

                      Hi, Angie! In the latest Android version you can now see captions – and you can even add or edit them directly in the app.

                      We’re working on ways to make them even more visible in the main timelines for our Website and apps.
                      Enjoy!

                      I would like to be able to get the original versions of photos posted by other users - e.g., to use for an iPhone screen background.

                        Hi! With the latest version of our iPhone app in the App Store, you can now download full-res images from your lifecake.

                        To update: Just go to the App Store app on your phone and check for updates.

                        To download: Tap on whichever content you want to download in lifecake, and then tap on the arrow in the bottom left.

                        We’ll be adding this to the Website and Android apps later.

                        Thanks for the suggestion!

                        • Scroll through ALL images

                          Hi, I would love to be able to flick through all the images instead of having to come out of each day's album and then choose another one.

                          Perhaps linking the albums would be a good idea? You could give the option to View Next Day/Album/Week/Month?

                          Loving Lifecake though!

                            Hi, all! This is now possible on iPhone and iPad, too. Just download the latest version from the App Store, and when you’re viewing content full-screen you can keep scrolling left or right across days.

                            Happy viewing!

                            I have photos of my baby with other babies who may also have Lifecakes. It would be great to be able to "tag" them in the photos so that the image would appear in their Lifecake too.

                              Thanks a lot for adding this, Anna!

                              We have made this possible. If your friends create lifecakes for their babies – and they share those with you, using your email address – you will be able to tag their babies in your photos. And vice versa. So lifecakes can start to intersect at points.

                              We realise the sharing of lifecakes is not as easy to find as it should be, so we are improving this – on the iPhone and our Website – over the next weeks. But if you have any questions in the meantime, please let us know.

                              Enjoy!

                            • Change date / Rotate

                              It would be great to be able to manually change the date of the photo or drag and drop it in the correct day. For some reason some of my uploads are staying in TODAY.

                              Also it would be really helpful if we could rotate the image once it was uploaded.

                                Right now it's a bit tricky to figure out where the timestamp can be changed for two reasons: 1) the annotation on the bottom of the photo is easily missed and 2) the text doesn't seem to indicate that it's the timestamp of the photo

                                • Import images from other Websites

                                  It would be really cool to be able to import certain photos albums I have on Picasa and Facebook, but to be able to select which ones and not bring them all in.

                                  Is something like that planned?

                                    Hi! On www.lifecake.com on your computer you can now add content from Facebook, Picasa and Instagram, just by clicking the big green + button. We will be adding more services, too!

                                    And in the next weeks we will add this ability on iPhones, iPods and iPads, too.

                                    If you have any requests for specific sites – like Youtube or Tumblr, please let us know!
