  1. Change permissions assigned to family and friends

    The parent should be able to limit who adds photos or videos, because you may want some people to be able to view and comment but not be able to upload stuff.

      Hello,

      We wanted to give you an update on this suggestion and we think we owe you a bit of an apology on this matter. As we have been looking into this further, it seems that we were a little over ambitious with our original estimate of when we might be able to deliver it.

      To be honest we have been working really hard and since we became part of the Canon family not everything we have planned to be developed went in accordance to our expectations.

      We definitely do want to add this feature and we acknowledge a lot of our users would like to see it built into Lifecake and we can assure you that we’ll get it onto our roadmap, just as soon as we have the time and the resources to build it.

      Many thanks for your patience and loyalty.

      Ed & the Lifecake Team.

    • Filter view to see only videos, or only photos, or only stories

      I think Lifecake is awesome I just wish there was a way to sort the videos. I would like to be able to see the videos by themselves.

        Hi
        Many thanks for the feedback. It is a great idea. Let’s see what traction this idea gets in the forum and once we see some good votes we’ll get working on it.

        Thanks,
        Ed & the Lifecake team

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Give the ability to make some pics/videos private.

            I guess it seems to defeat the purpose is you're using this awesome app to share pics/videos with family and friends. But I also like to be able to store all the pics/videos in one place. Some pics I may not necessarily want to share with everyone that can view the timeline so the option to make some pics/videos private would be great! Either way, I LOVE LifeCake!

            • Photoframe Integration

              I recently purchased a Pix-Star Wifi photo frame for all of my family members. The beauty of the frame is that it can automatically receive updates to the frame but having the photos sent to an email address. I find that when I post to Lifecake, I often have to separately email the photos to updates the frame. It would be wonderful if posted photos could emailed and "reflected" to an address attached to a family member. It would be amazing to add this integration or suggest a way I could receive updates to a photo frame. Alternatively, if Lifecake…

                Hi, Josh! So sorry that there was a delay in responding to your suggestion.

                We’re looking into how we can enable customers to integrate into photoframes in a simple way. And we’ll update in here when we know more.

                In terms of Dropbox, you can actually import from Dropbox on your computer browser, iPhone/iPad or Android in the Lifecake app. It’s an option when you click or tap on +. Just let us know if you have any issues with this.

                Have a great day!

              • Please make your books more customisable, with the option to include all content!

                Hi!
                I'm a big fan of the look and functionality of the LifeCake website and app! Ultimately, I'm looking to print content in a book though, so I'm still waiting on some features and hope you'll consider adding them in the future. Specifically, it'd be great if all content, including stories and comments, could be included and there was an option for multiple pictures/stories per page.
                I recently stumbled across My Social Book and would love being able to print books of a similar look from LifeCake. Do you think your books will deliver similar features in the future?

                  Hi, Johana! So sorry for the delay in responding, but we’re glad you’re enjoying the app and Website.

                  We do want to provide more options in our photobooks in the future for sure. Right now we’re focusing on customer requests within our app and Website, though, so we’re unsure when we will have this. But we will update this as soon as we do.

                  And in the meantime, just so you know: we have an option on our Website in Settings to ‘Download all’. With this you can download all your content – in full quality and in monthly, organised folders – so you can still print books on other sites in the time being.

                  Thanks for your patience and your feedback!

                • Allow Video Share

                  We have options to share pictures or download them back to our phone but our videos have zero options. Once we upload them to your site, we can't do anything with them. Can you add a share to Facebook or YouTube feature or even download back to our phone? I'm using life cake as storage and have found that I can't get any of the video back to my phone to share with people that don't have a life cake account. Thank you!

                    Hi, Tammie! So sorry for the delay in responding to this.

                    To download videos, you can download all your original photos and videos via the ‘Download all’ option in Settings on our Website. Just so you know.

                    But we will look at downloading individual videos and get back to you!

                  • Photo Editing

                    It would be great if there was a built in photo editor to add things such as filters and maybe stickers, a lot of companies charge for stickers so you could have a set free sticker pack and charge for other premium ones.

                    It would be great to just be able to make small edits to photo's and then upload within the app itself rather than editing them in another app and then saving them and then uploading them, it would also free up space on devices...

                      Hey Nick! Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking into our options to offer basic photo editing within our apps and from our web – it is definitely something we want to do.

                      I’d love to know how you (and others) would like to use stickers. What type of stickers would you be most interested in?

                      • Make it possible to choose the order of photos taken on the same date.

                        At the moment you can't choose the order of photos taken on the same day, which is a pain. This would be a helpful improvement!

                          Hi! Thanks for the suggestion and apologies for the delay in responding.

                          Would your ideal scenario be that you can drag a photo to be the main one featured that day and then have the rest of the family see the same thing?

                        • Enable comments to be hidden from family members who don't get along

                          My family are really enjoying lifecake and love posting comments on my photos. However my parents are divorced and don't like reading each others comments.

                          Could you introduce a privacy option so I could keep comments hidden from different family members, or only allow them to see my comments or their own and not each others?

                            Currently this feature is not planned however should there by any changes, we’ll notify you right away.

                            As I put in more pictures and videos, I'm noticing that many are being put in the bottom row (hidden) until I click on it. Can you look into making a Calendar view by Month/Year to make things easier to find? Maybe make 1 picture the cover of the day in the month.. ?

                              It would be so cool to have an app feature that ages your child. You can see how close the app comes to when your child actually reaches that age.

                                  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.

                                  I'm afraid that I don't like how the stories display since the new update - it used to show a nice overview in attractive italic text of most of the story and now it shows maybe 3 big words and doesn't look as attractive at all

                                    Hi.

                                    Many thanks for this feedback. We do agree that this part of the update requires further work. We’ll ask our designers to get on it and let you know when an update might be available.

                                    Thanks,
                                    Ed & the Lifecake team.

                                  • have option to view date picture was taken and age of child and then the photos - like the format of Peekaboo Moments

                                    In the past I have used Peekaboo Moments, but really like that you all are good about reading our concerns and addressing them. I am willing to make the switch, but would love to see the view look more like Peekaboo Moments. IMHO the current format on iphone doesn't give as much detail as I would like to see. Also it would be awesome to be able to add stickers to images like in Tinybeans.

                                      Hi. Thanks for the feedback. It would be great to understand which additional details you’d most value in this view.

                                      Thanks,

                                    • web version like button in the flow

                                      Great that you made the flow in the web version scrolling from top to bottom!

                                      I would like to have the possibility to click like in the flow and and comments without click the big image.

                                        Hey Stefan. We LOVE this idea. Let’s ask others to vote on it and if it gets some traction we’ll definitely look to prioritise.

                                        Thanks,

                                      • Create separate circles of people for one Lifecake stream.

                                        I would love to share the Lifecake imagery and video with a variety of different friend/family groups in my life, but it would be more appropriate for their communication streams to be separate.

                                        I saw another person on the forum ask if you could hide comments so that one one person didn't have to see the comments of another family member/friend. Having seperate circles could be another way to meet that need. The two people that don't get along would never be in the same circle.
