  1. Remove other board invitations

    My (well-meaning) mother created her own Lifecake board of our child. However, instead of posting only her own photos of our daughter, she is downloading our images and reposting them to hers. Can you prevent others from doing this? And can I remover her invite from my account? Even if I turn her album off, her activities appears in my notifications. It's really annoying seeing duplicate photos, and unfortunately, this grandmother thinks she is entitled to do it this way so she can share with extended family (despite our pleas for her to stop)...or can I report her account so…

  2. Creating Albums

    It would be nice to have the option of creating albums, which would be a way to organize some picture into sets of common topics.

    Hi, Patrice! So sorry for the delay in responding.

    We are planning a better system with tagging which will enable you to do exactly this. We will update you when we have more information.

    Thanks, and have a great day!

  3. Different sizes of pictures in timeline (App)

    It is already looking good, and I feel that a way to make it even better is for you to "randomly" give different sizes to the pictures shown in the timeline... a little like facebook is doing

  4. Change the "Story" Font

    The font used for the "Story" feature doesn't match the beautiful aesthetic of the rest of the site. It looks underdeveloped. I recommend changing the font, or allowing users to specify a font and a color.

    Thanks! We’ll look into this and get back to you.

  5. Upload multiple photos into a slideshow without having to first import each individual photo.

    I love your slideshow option for uploading multiple photos of a single event, like a birthday party. (This feature sets you apart from your competition). But instead of having to upload each image separately and then make a slideshow out of them (thus duplicating the images on my timeline), it would be great to be able to choose several images at once (from iPhoto or wherever you load from) and put them directly into a slideshow...with no duplicate stills.

    Hi, Joan! So glad you love this feature :-)

    Just so we’re sure we understand, are you keen to make slideshows with photos that you don’t want to actually have in your Lifecake timeline?

    Thanks for helping us understand.

  6. Introduce differently coloured frames.

    I am one of four children all of which use lifecake for our own little ones so that our parents can keep track of their grandchildren. More people use lifecake within the extended family so that some of us have 7 or more children to keep track of.
    When looking at the "What's new" page all I see is a list of pictures and I often have difficulties finding out who is shown on the picture. I think it would be a great improvement if you could assign each child a differently coloured frame so that the frame colour would…

  7. 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!

  8. Compare children at at same age ie both my children when they were 4 months

    We all like to see the comparison of our children when they were the same age would be a great addition to the new then & now . Us at the same age !

    Thanks so much for this suggestion and so sorry for the delay. We have talked about this in the team a lot in the past – we’d love to do this – and it’s something we’re evaluating. We’ll update here when we know more about this.

    Please keep the suggestions coming!

  9. Swipe Right is FORWARD

    Lifecake has Swipe Right and Swipe Left reversed. This is simply annoying. Please fix.

    Hi! Ed here from the Lifecake team. We agree – we got this wrong and will start working on addressing this in the next 2 weeks. An update should be available from the app store in the next 3-4 weeks.

  10. Upload order is backwards

    when uploading photos, it would be very helpful if the order of photos within Lifecake were the same as on my iPhone's camera roll.

    Hi! We’ve had a lot of debate about this within the team …and a lot of talking with mums and dads. The overall consensus was that, for speed and convenience purposes, it makes sense for the newest moments to be found at the top. However, let’s see how popular this point is and whether we need to revisit our thinking here. Thanks, Ed

  11. animated preview of videos like googleplus or facebook

    When I selected which videos to upload from googleplus, the previews were animated. Now that they're uploaded, the preview thumbnails are all static... I have to click play to see them move.

    I liked seeing the many animated thumbnails at once.
    Make this happen in the timeline too.

    See google plus or facebook for examples.

    Hi Daniel! This is a great idea. We’d love to offer this functionality within our apps. We’ll start investigating how we can best make this happen. Have a great day! Ed

    Hi Caroline! Thanks for the suggestion – and sorry we’re not getting back to you sooner. We will continue to add platforms from where you can import to Lifecake. We don’t yet have a schedule for OneDrive but we’ll let you know when we do.

  14. Show all the names of people who have loved a moment as in mine it shows a few names of family members and not everyone?

    Currently if a photo is liked, if several people have loved it, it shows up as eg;
    John, jack, kate, richa.....
    Yet there are several other people who have loved a moment and it doesnt show up?

    Hello,

    We are very sorry for the delayed response on this. We are aware of this issue on our iOS Apps and we are working on a new design for Lifecake now – which will also fix this issue.

    Thank you for your feedback.

  15. Add multiple shipping addresses for photo books.

    There is only one option for billing / shipping so I had to order a photo book to my house which I will then have to ship to someone else. This doesn't make sense, and is too time consuming. Plus with the holiday's it may not make it in time. what if I wanted to order the same book to several people?... would be nice to add this feature. It's pretty basic after all.

    Hi Samantha! We cannot wait to add Flashbacks (slideshow’s new name) to Android. We plan to start building this function into the app this coming quarter. Thanks for the feedback! Ed

  17. Then and Now

    I really love the Then and Now's that you send to my email. I wish there were a way that you could do them in the timeline or as another option to save the ones that you have sent so we can download them and send them to others who do not have this. Also the adding music is cool but I do not have (nor do I plan on getting) an Iphone it would be cool if we could do it at least on the website.

  18. Build a share app extension for iOS

    To simplify adding recently taken photos to your child's lifecake there should be an option to share photos to lifecake from the iOS photo share menu.

  19. I would like to see the timeline label move along chronologically by Baby's age

    Instead of having the timeline label be based on how many days or weeks ago the photo was uploaded, it would be more helpful to be labeled according to Baby's age as of the date of the photo (i.e. two weeks old, one month old, 6 weeks old, one year old, etc.).

    Hi! So sorry for the delay in responding to this – it slipped through the net. Can you tell us which device you’re using?

  20. Slideshow with music is great but...

    every song I selected was copyright . Can you filter so only available songs are shown?

    Hi Jim! Thanks for the suggestion – it makes total sense and we’ll definitely investigate whether this is possible with a workaround. Today, we’re allowed access to the music you have in iTunes and we’re only given the copyright alert once you make your selection.

    Thanks,
    Ed
