  1. Make some family viewers only

    Can you invite family that you want to view your content but not be able to comment on it?

    • Please make your books more customisable, with the option to include all content!

      Hi!
      I'm a big fan of the look and functionality of the LifeCake website and app! Ultimately, I'm looking to print content in a book though, so I'm still waiting on some features and hope you'll consider adding them in the future. Specifically, it'd be great if all content, including stories and comments, could be included and there was an option for multiple pictures/stories per page.
      I recently stumbled across My Social Book and would love being able to print books of a similar look from LifeCake. Do you think your books will deliver similar features in the future?

        Hi, Johana! So sorry for the delay in responding, but we’re glad you’re enjoying the app and Website.

        We do want to provide more options in our photobooks in the future for sure. Right now we’re focusing on customer requests within our app and Website, though, so we’re unsure when we will have this. But we will update this as soon as we do.

        And in the meantime, just so you know: we have an option on our Website in Settings to ‘Download all’. With this you can download all your content – in full quality and in monthly, organised folders – so you can still print books on other sites in the time being.

        Thanks for your patience and your feedback!

      • Allow Video Share

        We have options to share pictures or download them back to our phone but our videos have zero options. Once we upload them to your site, we can't do anything with them. Can you add a share to Facebook or YouTube feature or even download back to our phone? I'm using life cake as storage and have found that I can't get any of the video back to my phone to share with people that don't have a life cake account. Thank you!

          Hi, Tammie! So sorry for the delay in responding to this.

          To download videos, you can download all your original photos and videos via the ‘Download all’ option in Settings on our Website. Just so you know.

          But we will look at downloading individual videos and get back to you!

        • Change permissions assigned to family and friends

          The parent should be able to limit who adds photos or videos, because you may want some people to be able to view and comment but not be able to upload stuff.

            Hello,

            We wanted to give you an update on this suggestion and we think we owe you a bit of an apology on this matter. As we have been looking into this further, it seems that we were a little over ambitious with our original estimate of when we might be able to deliver it.

            To be honest we have been working really hard and since we became part of the Canon family not everything we have planned to be developed went in accordance to our expectations.

            We definitely do want to add this feature and we acknowledge a lot of our users would like to see it built into Lifecake and we can assure you that we’ll get it onto our roadmap, just as soon as we have the time and the resources to build it.

            Many thanks for your patience and loyalty.

            Ed & the Lifecake Team.

          • Support for animated gifs (like auto awesome from google plus)

            We backup all photos (including non child) to Google Plus, and sometimes it creates sweet and beautiful animated photos. I tried to upload to Lifecake and the preview during uploaded was animated, but then once added the gif became static.

            Gifs are a standard format already supported by all browsers and mobile phones, please preserve the format for lifecake photos.

              Hey Eddie. Thanks for the feedback. We definitely could support animated gifs – it is really just a question of where we focus our resources. We’ll keep an eye on the number of votes this gets and shall keep you posted.

            • "Download All" should download EVERYONE'S content

              Currently, "download all" only gives me the photos/video that I contributed... but I would like to archive everyone's content, not just my own. I would also like this to include the stories/comments.

              • Log in should default to username and password

                I shouldn't have to click through 4+ things just to get logged in to Lifecake. The default should be username and password, ideally on the main page already. Non standard methods of logging in should require further clicking, not the other way around.

                • Make nicknames universal

                  i think that nicknames set by the parents should be the names that show for anyone looking at the account. For example, if my brother created his account with just his name, Matt, but I put his nickname as Uncle Matt, everyone should see his name as Uncle Matt when he loves a moment or makes a comment.

                    Hi, Sarah! Thanks so much for this (and sorry for the delay in responding). Seems to be getting a lot of votes.

                    We didn’t do this currently because we know in many families people have their own personal nicknames for people (i.e. ‘Grandma’ for me is ‘Mum’ to my mother). This is our concern with making things universal.

                    Also, who gets to decide what someone’s nickname is? If it’s personal, then there is no issue. But if it’s universal, then only one person can decide.

                    Would love to know yours (and anyone else’s) thoughts on this!

                    - Nick, from the Lifecake team

                  • 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!

                    • 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!

                        I think Lifecake is awesome I just wish there was a way to sort the videos. I would like to be able to see the videos by themselves.

                          Hi
                          Many thanks for the feedback. It is a great idea. Let’s see what traction this idea gets in the forum and once we see some good votes we’ll get working on it.

                        • Photo Editing

                          It would be great if there was a built in photo editor to add things such as filters and maybe stickers, a lot of companies charge for stickers so you could have a set free sticker pack and charge for other premium ones.

                          It would be great to just be able to make small edits to photo's and then upload within the app itself rather than editing them in another app and then saving them and then uploading them, it would also free up space on devices...

                            Hey Nick! Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking into our options to offer basic photo editing within our apps and from our web – it is definitely something we want to do.

                            I’d love to know how you (and others) would like to use stickers. What type of stickers would you be most interested in?

                          • AirPlay and Casting integration

                            It would be great if the app integrated with AirPlay and casting for Google Chromecast. The ability to view videos and photos on your home tv makes for a great family viewing experience. Our son loves watching the videos of him, but watching them on the phone is such a small experience. Being able to view them on a large screen tv would be great.

                            If there was a way to AirPlay or cast Flashbacks that would be a great way to view your child's progress. It's also an easy way to put pictures of your child at their birthday…

                              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!

                                My family are really enjoying lifecake and love posting comments on my photos. However my parents are divorced and don't like reading each others comments.

                                Could you introduce a privacy option so I could keep comments hidden from different family members, or only allow them to see my comments or their own and not each others?

                                  Currently this feature is not planned however should there by any changes, we’ll notify you right away.

                                  Have a great day,
                                  The Lifecake team.

                                • Option to add baby's measurements (height/weight) as they grow.

                                  Would love to be able to add measurements from doctor check-ups like I can add a photo or story. And be able to filter for these down the road so I can quickly access all measurements and compare children. :) Thanks for this app. Our whole family loves it.

                                  • Compare baby photos from the same age

                                    I use Lifecake for my baby, and one of my friends uses Lifecake for her baby. It would be very fun if there were an option to display our kids' Lifecake photos according to their ages in the photos as opposed to displaying them according to the date the photo was taken. That way, I'd have the option of seeing photos of my baby girl at 3 months old next to the pics of her baby at 3 months old. Adding this as an option would be really great. (I imagine families with multiple children would also love this option…

                                    • Give parents ability to turn off emails/notifications to specific people!

                                      Give primary account holder (parent) ability to select who gets notifications and emails so not all people get them.
                                      Also- only send 1 notification email per day NOT per addition, comment or like

                                      • allow name changes for family members

                                        When I signed up my family, my father appeared as "Daddy" as that was his contact name on my phone. Now, there is no way for me to change his name, and he is not my child's father. FURTHERMORE my husband was added to the app using his phone number, and instead of referring to him by his name, it treats him as a 10-digit number.
