Make it so the app sorts the photos from dates rather than having to trawl through thousands of photos yourself!!1 vote
Hi, Emma! Thanks a lot for this.
Currently when you import content into our apps – from the phone, tablet, computer or Web accounts – we automatically put moments into your child(ren)’s timeline(s) at the right date. Is this what you mean?
We do sometimes face issues with detecting the date the moment was captured, as many apps remove or alter this data. Which is frustrating.
Please let us know a bit more about what you’re suggesting, and we’ll get right back to you.
So the extra shots in the drawer below the timeline can be dragged onto the timeline to replace those selected automatically. But when I drag a replacement photo from the drawer to the timeline, there is a pre-determined order that the photos are displayed in. This is actually a bit annoying! It would be far better if I could drag and drop the exact image I want from the drawer and onto the exact thumbnail where I'd like it displayed.10 votes
We’re so sorry about the delay in responding on this, James. We are looking at our Website and looking to change quite a few things, and we’ll update here when we have a test version. We’d love to get everyone’s feedback!
Do you plan to support flickr in the near future?35 votes
Hi, Ross! Thanks for the question.
We plan to, but we’re just checking how many votes the idea gets to decide on when we do it. We’ll update you here when we’re sure. And sorry for the delay in the meantime.
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!78 votes
Thanks a lot for the suggestion, Thuy! We’ve been having lots of discussions about this in our team, and we may come back with a few questions on this. But it is definitely on our radar.
Have a great day!
It would be great if the slideshow option was also available on the iPad version of the App.5 votes
I was showing the slideshow on our TV via apple TV and I could only show the pictures in Portrait mode. The pictures were so small on the TV because the were taken in Landscape but showing as if I was viewing them on my phone. The only showed on about 1/4 of my entire TV screen.4 votes
When you select a video or image to download, have a prompt to add a caption then download.6 votes
Appreciate that at the moment we can title pictures but what about labeling key dates: 1st Christmas, 1st Birthday, 1 Day at School, Trip to the zoo etc etc.2 votes
Allow photos to be tagged by location/place. Instagram has this feature. Makes it easier to tag rather than having to describe where every picture was taken.49 votes
Hi, Pauline. We’re so sorry this suggestion didn’t get a response.
We’ve had a lot of thought about this as a team, and we’ve always worried that location information might seem a bit intrusive. But we’re thinking about ways we can do this so it’s totally optional and wouldn’t violate the privacy of parents or their children.
We’ll update in there when we know more :-)
I just lost a long story I wrote after locking my phone with lifecake open. Unlocked it and it was gone. Please add autosave drafts for stories.1 vote
Hi! Would you be able to make the app able to turn into landscape mode to make typing easier?4 votes
Hi Judit! Thanks so much for the suggestion. We’ll add it to our backlog for sure and keep an eye on the number of votes.

Currently, even a two line note entered into the story page gets truncated, because the font is so big... when in view mode. Would like to be able to set the size at least.3 votes
It would be nice if user could configure comments to show when in the timeline view instead of having to drill into a particular photo. Maybe when mouse over comment icon on desktop or touch pic on mobile devices.6 votes
Hi Jim! Thanks a lot for this. It’s a really interesting idea that could certainly have a place on the bigger screen – tablets, computer. We’re unable to tackle it now but let’s see how it gets on in the voting.
Sort the "Add Photos and Video" source list by most used, or allow hiding of sources that aren't used.
When adding photos, it would be great to either hide sources that I don't use (like Facebook, Picasa, and Instagram) or to sort the list by most frequently used sources.
I realize that you can just click "All photos and videos" but its still visual clutter for those that don't use those services.1 vote
Hi Eugene! Thanks for this suggestion. You make a really good point and we have some ideas about tackling this. Is your default album typically ‘camera roll’ or do you source from other albums equally?
More space to write and automatic orthography correction. It's is very difficult to write more than 2 lines and then is imposible to see what I'm writing.1 vote
My son is 6 months the recent update from you was from 2 months ago but you can't really see a big difference3 votesAdminEd (CEO / Founder, lifecake) responded
Hi! Are you referring to the emails we send that show then and now photos? If so, you’re right in that these are best when a bigger age gap is shown. We’re working on improving our algorithm that chooses the photos all the time …so hopefully you’ll be getting some better ones very soon :)
I know there are notifications when people click on the heart button but I am wondering if you could add a tab or just something within the existing search function to view these photo's only? Both in the app and on the website, it would be good to view all the photo's that people have liked and then even filter it by child too.4 votes
Hi Nick! We think this is a great idea and something we must have. We don’t yet have a timescale but we’ll be sure to update here when this feature is available.
Thanks for your patience in the mean time!
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...64 votes
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?
- Ed, the Lifecake team.
Within the iPhone app. I regularly put updates regarding my son's medical condition and would be good to quickly find entries.6 votes
Hi, Brigid! Thanks very much for this.
We have a search function on our Website, but we hope to make this much more advanced – and eventually included in our apps, too.
Can you share which criteria you’d most like to search by? Title, tag, comment, date, etc?
Through the website you can edit a story but through the android app you cannot. It would be really great if you would change this.1 vote
Hi, Alex! Thanks a lot for this. We definitely plan to add this in the future, and we will update here when we have it.
Thanks for your patience in the meantime!
