  1. I really appreciate a company with the insight to develop a feature like that

    Just met Lifecake tonight in response to an invitation from a relative and fellow Mom. So far, I am impressed and, after trying it out initially, see myself signing up for the unlimited storage at some point. One thing in particular that I like (in addition to the not sharing/selling our info and content, and advertising) is the "handbrake" feature. I SO wish Facebook had something like that. I've been wanting to leave them for so long, but all of my photo and video albums with their captions, dates, and etc are on there. I feel trapped and frustrated. Not…

    So glad you are enjoying Lifecake, Kendra!

    We use Lifecake with our own families’ memories, and we know how precious they are. We always strive to make sure our customers have complete control and can do with it exactly what they want to, even if that is to move to another service at any point.

    If you ever have any suggestions or questions for us, please let us know. In the meantime, enjoy!

    Hello, thank you for the feedback.

    We are happy to let you know that you can edit your comments on the Lifecake website as well as on the Apps. Hope you enjoy using Lifecake!

    Have a great day,
    The Lifecake Team

  3. Thanks

    I'm seriously loving this app and website. I like that it's more private than Facebook, and that I don't have to worry about annoying my non-mommy friends with all the sweet photos of my son that I want to keep forever. I added my mother, and she says that this is much easier than sifting through "all the Facebook garbage." So, thanks for putting an ad on Facebook where I would see it!

    That’s so great to hear, Marcia! Feedback like this really motivates our team :-)

    Do let us know if you’d ever be interested in being part of a special group whom we send occasional (once a month at most) concepts to to get feedback for potential new features. And if you have any things you’d love to see in Lifecake, please let us know!

    Have a great day :—)

  4. improve your timeline design (how many times do I need to suggest this?)

    Please just display all photos in the timeline - none of this ridiculous 'minor' photos below that one then doesn't notice.
    Such a primitive way of displaying photos - I wish my daughter would switch to a website that is more user friendly, where ALL photos are just in a grid and there is no limit of how many photos can be uploaded per day.
    Sorry, but it's not working as you have it at the moment and on mobile is even worse (can't even see the photos in a timeline, only per day)

    Hi. Thanks for your suggestion.

    If you go to m.lifecake.com, there is a ‘Sign in’ button in the top right. If you enter your email and password you will get a grid of every photo and video.

    Have a good day.

  8. Re-word "add a kid"

    I think it sounds awful. Maybe even "add another person/family member"..... Kid makes it sound tacky and a little chavvy. Sorry. Great app otherwise :)

    Hi, Emily! You are completely right, and we are changing this. Android will be change in the next day, and our iPhone/iPad app will be changed in the next 5 days. (Our Website already says ‘Add child’).

    Thanks for raising this! Please keep the suggestions coming :-)

  9. Keep up the Great Work!

    I dont "check in" here everyday, nor am I posting life moments everyday (yet), but I keep coming back to lifecake and I love this app/resource/program/life-hack more and more every time I use it!

    Thank you,
    Jori Brown

  10. Gallery including ALL photos

    I would like a gallery including ALL photos, and not only the photos for a given day. In the timeline I can see just a preview all the photos, but if I want to see them all, I have to click on a day, the browse, then back to the time line to click on another day, etc. A bit anoying.

  12. iPhone shows age instead of Date

    Can you allow the user to configure app to show Age, date of picture or both on mobile and desktop?

    Hi Jim! You absolutely can do this. If you tap on the side block (for iPhone) this toggles it between age and date (if only one child filtered in timeline). On Android, if you tap either the date or age header (depending on what is shown), it will toggle too between age and date.

    Hope this helps!

  14. Import from Dropbox & YouTube

    Hi

    Correct me if I am wrong but are the files for lifecake hosted on the Amazon servers? If so, so are the files from dropbox and using their API I don't think it would be too difficult to create an option to import from dropbox and the transfer speed would be quicker than say importing from your computer as they are on the same servers?

    Also I think the service is more geared towards images and photo's, maybe due to keeping costs down? But it would be a great option to be able to import video from youtube (user…

    Hi, Nick! You can now import from Dropbox on both iPhone and Android. Give it a try!

    We haven’t had many requests for YouTube – as it’s such a public platform – but if we get requests for that we will look to add it.

  15. make it possible for members to see who they've invited as a list.

    Us baby brained people cant remember everything! So if there was a list of people we've invited along with who's joined it would make it easier!

  16. Download photo option on Android platform

    Both the desktop website and the iOS app have the abilities to 'add to camera roll', or otherwise effectively download a particular photo. On Android devices, however, this option is distinctly absent.

    It would be cool to have this feature on Android too without having to do some major fiddling to otherwise perform the action (involving lots of cursing and taking screenshots...)

    Hi! Just to let you know that the Android download to camera roll feature is now in place in the most recent update.

    Hope you like it.

    Have a great day!

  17. make it easy to develop single photos from within the app/web site

    Add a feature so that you can develop single photos directly without downloading and without having to make a full book. Or is there already an easy way?

    Hi, Katie! So sorry for the delay, but you can do this. If you go to www.lifecake.com on your computer and sign in, you will see a little book icon above the timeline on the right side. If you click on this you will get an option to create a book, and you can even choose others in your family as recipients. If you do, we will auto-create a book with their favorites.

    Please have a try when you get a chance – you can create a book without ordering one, just to try it – and let us know what you think.

    Thanks!

  20. Remove request to access my photos via privacy on app
