  1. allow for uploads of audio and audio playback on the site

    I love all the sounds my baby makes and will continue to record his voice as he gets older. I know our parents far away would like to hear these things along with my own voice or my wife's talking about our son (and eventually him talking to them). Audio takes up very little space, would this be possible?

  2. use face recognition in your see how xxx has changed emails

    I often get these with faces cut out of the image and can't reframe pic. I love sharing these pics but find some simply can't be used because of this

  5. Add a field for each photo or video that allows descriptions beyond a title

    I know another user recommended a description area per event. I would love to see it per photo or per video as I tend to upload very random photos vs. several from an event. So many of my family and friends are long distance and while a picture is worth a thousand words, it would be nice to be able to add additional text beyond a simple title to explain what is happening in the picture or video or other fun information :) Thanks!

  6. Automatically populate "titles" using captions from photo software (e.g. Lightroom) or service.

    I enter captions in Lightroom for the photos I share via Facebook/Picasa, and they're automatically populated there. Lifecake should do the same, so that I don't have to manually add titles for all my pictures.

  7. 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.

  8. Replace Kid with Child

    Hi there,

    I really love Lifecake. I have introduced it to all the women in my NCT group and beyond and they too are fans. It is a lifesaver for remote in-laws who don't get to see their grandchild as often as they would like. And, for me, as a UX type professional I love the fact that the photos are mine not yours.

    The interface is excellent. I mainly use the app. I have nothing but praise except for the fact that it says 1 Kid. I would much prefer child.

    I accept that this may be a question…

  9. 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.

    under review  ·  Ipek responded

    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

  10. I want to be able to share these

    I want to share these with other family who also live far away, the videos don't transfer and in emails can you make this possible?? I love this idea of "Lifecake" great idea better than others I have seen..I hope YOU don't share them.

  12. Make it possible to see who has posted a photo or story

    I realise you can see this as it happens on the what's new page, but it would be great to be able to see it as you scroll through the main gallery, at least when a photo/story is opened. Sometimes when a story is a few weeks old you have no idea who is talking.

  13. 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.

  17. Quick rotating of thumbnail

    It would be a LOT easier and quicker if one could rotate the picture when viewing the timeline, and not having to click on the photo first.

  19. Create an option to select a default child for uploads.

    We have Lifecake accounts for both our son and our cousin's son, and every time we upload a picture we need to select which child it is for. Since we only upload pics for our son (and just view our cousin's son's account every now and then), it would be great if there were an option to make our son the default so we don't need to select him each time we upload.

    Thanks a lot, Samantha. Sorry for the delay in responding.

    We are looking into this, and we’ll update here when we have more information.

    Thanks!

  20. show who is logged in

    It would be great to know which one of us (mum or dad) is logged into lifelike on the main screen - its weird if dad uploads a photo of mum while not knowing mum is currently logged in, and dad says "mum looking exceptional today"....
