  1. Option to have Description/title shown on photo timeline

    As you look at the Photoi in the timeline, it would be nice to be able to see the description/title as a caption under the image. This way you don't have to click on the image to see it. You should be able to turn this on and off for each photo.

  2. Enable Facebook/Google/Twitter login

    It's always a pain to ask people to create new user accounts. Any chance you can integrate these services for account creation/authorization?

  3. Mobile 'Slide Show' View

    On the iPhone app, allow seamless, fast viewing of pictures through a traditional chronological slide show view - ie, no delay when you switch days (similar to the facebook mobile photo viewer)

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    We actually have a slideshow mode, but just to see your ten favourite photos. To see this, start lifecake and shake your iPhone (or iPad), and we will show what we think are your ten favourite photos. Shake it again, and see ten more.

    But we’ll look into having a slideshow mode for the whole timeline!

  4. Embed video links to YouTube

    If we already have videos on YouTube, would it be possible to add them to the lifecake just by embedding a link - this might be easier as videos can take a long time to upload, download, etc. We don't store all of our videos locally (some are posted directly from the phone to YouTube), which then makes them hard to get on to Lifecake.

    Hi, Nick! This is a really interesting idea.

    Our vision for lifecake is to be the oen single story of all the moments in our child’s life. One safe place where everything lives – whether the content was on the phone, your tablet, our computer or even on the Web.

    Later this month we plan to enable importing directly from online sites like Flickr or Picasa or Facebook, so you don’t have to download from these sites and then upload again to lifecake. Youtube might also be one.

    We plan to hold the content so that you have the comfort of knowing everything is safe in on one place, but we will also explore displaying content which might be held elsewhere. We will check into this and get back to you.

    Thanks!

    Nick

  5. Change the title (tab) text

    In Chrome, all you can see is 'lifecake | all your childre' - at least on the tabs on my screen (Win7 laptop) - maybe for tabbed browsers it could just say 'lifecake | <name of child>'?

  6. Add sound

    It would be great to be able to publish sound recordings : my daughter singing, my baby drinking, ... With mobile phone, we have voice recorder app included, so...

    Thanks a lot for the suggestion! As much of our team came from Skype, we have a special fondness for audio. And we are looking to do something quite unique with audio in the future.

    But in the meantime we can look to support basic audio recordings, as they are indeed lovely and powerful.

    Thanks!

  7. Allow some choice in thumbnails and photo positions.

    For multiple photos per date, would be nice to have some option in positioning of photos, and the thumbnails shown. Especially in the case of 2 photos on a single date, there are a lot of foreheads only being displayed!

    Hi, Bryony. We now use large thumbnails – and square – so you should see a lot fewer thumbnails. We’re seeing how people like this, and we may also do the positioning soon, too. Would love any feedback!

  8. Please keep draggable target while photos are uploading

    Right now once you drag the first picture or movie the draggable target disappears (replaced with status of current uploads). Please keep an area of the screen targetable so we can drag more pictures without having to close the window and open another one.

  9. Bulk change dates

    Hi, I see the date changing feature (though it's super tiny and easy to miss!) but I'd love to be able to change dates in bulk.

    I hope you support multiple layouts / re-arranging pictures soon!

    Great job so far, the website looks beautiful. My wife will love this!

    Thanks very much, Pedro. In the next week we plan to make the date changing – and the tagging to a child – much more visible. You’re right: they are not clear.

    As far as changing bulk dates of content, we will assess this. But lifecake should be putting everything in the correct date for you. Every time a file is uploaded with a date format we can’t find or don’t understand, our system adjusts itself to read the new format. Can you tell me where/how you took the photos or videos which are not going to the correct date?

    Many thanks for the idea! Keep them coming, please :-)
