  1. Play video sounds on mute

    ''Videos in my phone's photo album play based on the volume on the phone and aren't tied to the ringer. In fact, most apps play based on the sound volume.

    Maybe you could put an in app toggle on the settings page to allow videos to play with sound while on vibrate/mute mode? ''

  2. No sound with video - iOS

    Since the update, when I upload videos, there is no sound. I know there's sound on the videos, because I played them on my phone before I uploaded them. Help!

  4. Show which photos have already been uploaded

    Please bring back the feature that shows you the photos you have already added when uploading new photos from iOS. Without this feature, it is all too easy to upload duplicates.

  5. don't like new look of website

    I am really not enjoying the new look of the website. I'm not sure if it is on a mobile view setting or something but the photos seem hidden and it doesn't show such a vibrant, fun timeline as before. I joined life cake because I loved how simple it was, I feel it is a real shame that it has changed and am finding it hard to use the site now.

  6. Reading comments

    Hello since the most recent update I am unable to read family and friends comments on photos/videos. I can only read the majority of the comments if I go to the notifications tab. Any thoughts on why this is happening???

  8. Child's age calculation inaccurate in new iOS build

    I noticed that the child's age becomes inaccurate at the start of a new month. My daughter was 4 months and 19 days on the 31 of July. Then on the 1st of Aug the app shows her as 5 months and 20 days.

    I understand that this is the 5th month of her life, but she is not yet 5.5 months.

    Could you please get this sorted out?

  9. Zoom/Preview mode missing from 'select view' in new iOS app

    Zoom option disappeared with latest update. Please add back so I can see photo in large size rather than thumbnail before I post.

  10. Prevent 'uploads paused'

    So when you're uploading a few images or a video, particularly over a slower network, it'd be nice if there was a setting to just 'continue uploading until the job is done'.

    At the moment you've got to sit there and babysit the process until all uploads have finished. Compare this with a service like Google Photos where it sits in the background and runs til the end.

    Hi Rob

    We do as much here as iOS allows us. If you keep the app in the foreground, the uploads will process (and whilst in upload mode the app doesn’t let the device go to sleep). However, once you move the app into the background, iOS will ‘kill’ the app from running in the background after 3 mins (they do this to everyone’s app – not just ours!). One final point to note is that if your device does go to sleep – on going back into Lifecake, the uploads should ‘take off’ from where you left them (rather than the whole process reinitiating).

    Hope this makes sense,
    The Lifecake team.

  12. Ever-present notification icon in new iOS app

    Ever since the new update I can't check my notifications, even though it says I have some (red dot over the bell). Please fix this!

    Hi
    So sorry for the trouble. This should now have been fixed so we’d love to hear from your at support@lifecake.com if that is not the case. It was tied to a bug that prevented your access to What’s New view. Please do let us know if you still have issues here.

    Many thanks,
    The Lifecake team.

  13. Uploads failing in the new iOS app

    Since the most recent mobile app update videos and pictures will not upload. Tried multiple times and it always says "upload failed". Please fix so we can keep using the app!!

  18. Offer to create prints with multiple photos.

    I would love a poster with all of the pictures I have in one picture. Perhaps even including some of the quotes - this would be a great Xmas present and would be easy to create within this app yet extremely time consuming to create manually. I love this app by the way! Beautifully designed.

  19. Keep doing great job

    My wife and I have been using the app for about 3 years I think, and it's amazing, we both love it.

    You are doing great job and your product it's the best thing for parenting.

    Keep doing it :D
