  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.).

  4. 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

  5. Give admins control over notification defaults

    The admin (me) should set up the notification defaults for people whom I add. My mom and dad and other elderly relatives aren't technologically savvy, and so when I add them, they'll get notifications on their smartphones as well as an email. I know them well enough to know that they don't want both, so it would be kind of nice if I could remotely set their notification preferences with an understanding that they could make changes if they decided to figure out how to do that.

  6. Be able to search for keywords in stories instead of just titles.

    I want to search for keywords that might not be found in the title of the story.

  7. Add a setting to upload only on wifi

    To be able to choose in the settings an option to only upload photos and videos when on wifi. This would pause the upload if the wifi connection is lost , avoiding using a lot of the 4G data allowance if we go out before the upload has finished

    Hi Elina. Huge apologies for this suggestion not being acted upon sooner. We had a lot of feedback on this point and so have already implemented this feature in Android and will be doing the same, soon, for iOS.

  8. add an date range / event timeline bar

    We've just been on holiday. It would be great if there was a bar above the photos that indicated the holiday period. So as a user I could set start and end dates and then a label and it shows a bar to indicate the period we were away. It would be a way to show photos in a loose labelled time/event based group. Other labels might be '1st birthday' , 'Learned to walk', 'first shoes' etc these could then be searchable, and the photos could be filtered based on event...

    Thanks a lot for this, Martin. We definitely want to be able to label milestones clearly in the timeline, so they’re easy to jump to and find. As we get closer we’ll reach out to see what you think of the design.

    Thanks a lot for the great suggestion! Good to see we’re thinking alike :-)

  9. Allow changing/editing of "days, weeks and months"

    Instead of having a set "12 weeks" or "day one" you should be able to edit this.

  10. File sizes

    I would like to be able to upload larger file sizes. I have videos of my parents reading books to my LO and I would like to up load those videos, but they are between 10-20 mins long.

    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.

    Thanks!

  12. Add drag and drop to reorganise timeline photos

    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.

    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!

  13. support uploading from flickr

    Do you plan to support flickr in the near future?

  14. 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!

  16. Be able to show the slideshow in landscape mode on iPhone

    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.

  18. Have the ability to provide "titles" for particular dates

    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.

  19. Enable location settings

    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.

    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 :-)

    Thanks!

  20. Autosave story drafts

    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.
