  1. Keep sizing of photos originally uploaded.

    Keep sizing of photos originally uploaded. After uploaded and viewed on full view some pictures are too big and cannot see entire frame. Some pictures are also shrunken down to their pre cropped , prior to upload position, despite being uploaded correctly.

    Hi, Melissa! So sorry for the delay, but this should be sorted now. When you tap on portrait (vertically-aligned) photos to view them on your iPhone they should fill the screen by default – as the Camera Roll does – but if you ‘reverse pinch’ then you can see the entire photo.

    Can you let us know if this isn’t working exactly as you’d like or expect it to now?

    Thanks!

  2. More Size Options for Photo Books

    Currently there is only an 80 page photo book option. Would it be possibly to have smaller sizes as an option? Such as 25 pages? I have a newborn son and I would love to give photo books for as birthday gifts to my family but I don't yet have enough photos to fill an 80 page photo book. It would also be great to capture specific times or events in the child's lives.

    Hi, Raquel! Thanks a lot for your question.

    The good news is that you can make books smaller than 80 pages. That’s just our default size. But you can actually make it 40 pages, if you’d like (and correspondingly less). We don’t do less than that as our hardcover books don’t feel quite right in the hand if they are less than that, and we want our products to feel great.

    We hope this helps, but please let us know if that isn’t what you’re after!

  3. Great changes to Lifecake! Would also be useful when selecting pictures from Camera Roll to be able to view a large version of the picture

    Picking THE pic from the hundreds that I take (!) is difficult as I can only see the tiny thumbnail pic and can't see the subtleties of expressions. It would be useful to be able to see a larger pic, so I can pick the best picture without having to leave the app, go to Camera Roll, work out which is the best pic then return to Lifecake.

  6. daily update digests

    You should offer people an option for a daily digest update of "Loves" and "messages". This would allow me to see what happens on the account over the course of a day without having my inbox flooded as people love every pictures! :)

  8. Highlight new unseen photos

    This Christmas, our precious little one was a 12 day jetsetter to multiple grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles & friends homes. Currently, there are 8 of us with access to upload photos. While I appreciate the email that tells me how many photos each person uploaded, what I would really like is a way to identify the newly added photos (that could technically go back several weeks when folks are doing "catch up uploads).

    For example, it would be great if when I logged on today, there was either a tab to take me to photos unseen prior to today, or…

    HI! Sorry this took us longer than expected to have it everywhere, but now on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android and our Website you can see a ’What’s New’ section. This will show all the latest content, comments and faves from the family.

    Please let us know if you have any trouble accessing this or have suggestions on ways to improve it!

  9. Re-order the same book

    It would be great if you could choose a book you'd previously made and then reprint it to send to another family member.

    Hi, Michelle! Thanks a lot for the suggestion. We’ve now added this ability. When you go into our book builder on our Website, you’ll see an option – when you click on the Book button – to re-order books you’ve made (even ones you made before we had this feature) and you can also use this to save books in progress.

    Enjoy! And please keep the suggestions coming.

  10. Enable editing of books in multiple sittings

    I'd love the ability to start a book but continue creating it at a later time.

  11. Push notifications for new content

    The one thing I'd really like push notifications for is when another member of the family adds new content as new content can sometimes be buried or not immediately obvious on the home screen. At the moment, I don't find out until the end of the week when the email arrives. This would be particularly nice when I'm working away from home or the kids are on holiday with the grandparents.

  12. Allow all photos from 1 day to be viewed in timeline.

    I would like all the photo's that I have posted for 1 day to be view in the timeline instead of clicking the green box under the photo to view the other photos. Currently, you can only view 3 or 4 photos in the timeline for any particular day. This also goes for the iPhone. Maybe a setting to allow or not allow this would be helpful.

  13. Allow editing stories on iPhone

    When I try and edit a story on iphone it will only let me edit a title or delete the story. I would like to edit stories from the iPhone.

  14. More information on e-mail invite

    A lot of the people who I invited from the android app deleted the invitation because they thought it was spam. I had to chase them up to tell them it was a legit invite.

  15. Change the child tagged in a photo

  16. Removal of

    I've just added a few family members to our LifeCake account. However it would appear one of them (my dad) has gone wrong and just lists a blank and then "(pending)" next to it. I suspect he might have trouble getting on, but we shall see.

    That is not the idea, however, rather it highlights an interesting feature that could do with being introduced: account member deletion. While you can indeed set people's permissions to 'none', effectively barring them from accessing your account, you can't actually remove anyone altogether. Maybe this is something you could look at introducing?

    Hi, Rob! This is now possible on iPhone or iPad (and coming to our Website soon). To delete someone, just open the ‘Share with family’ section in Settings and then swipe right over their name (you’ll see an option to Delete).

    Any questions or comments, please let us know. And thanks for the suggestion!

  17. allow users to change their email address

    I'd like to be able to change the email address associated with my Lifecake account. However, when I go into Settings on the web site, it seems I can only change my name and password.

  18. Add an additional parent

    I didn't add my husband as the other admin when I set this account up; I assumed I could go back and add him later after I checked his email address. I'd like him to have the same admin control as me. Is this possible?

    Hi, Jo!

    Absolutely. If you share your lifecake with your husband, just be sure to add him with the rights to:
    ‘Comment, Add, Edit’.

    He will than have the same parental controls you do.

    If you have any questions or other suggestions, please let us know!

  19. provide an uninvite function

    I do not think there is currently a way to remove a friend or family member once they have accepted the invite? Although you would hope never to need such a function, I imagine there will be circumstances which warrant it.

    Hi, Jo! Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

    We actually have this today – the ability to remove someone’s access – but it’s not as clear as we’d like.

    On your phone or iPad you can click on Sharing – or on our Website on your computer, you can click on the ‘Family and friends’ button at the top of the site – and then you can select an existing content. Then you can change the permissions to ‘None’ for permissions.

    But we will look to make this simpler!
