I know there are notifications when people click on the heart button but I am wondering if you could add a tab or just something within the existing search function to view these photo's only? Both in the app and on the website, it would be good to view all the photo's that people have liked and then even filter it by child too.4 votes
Hi Nick! We think this is a great idea and something we must have. We don’t yet have a timescale but we’ll be sure to update here when this feature is available.
Thanks for your patience in the mean time!
I'm afraid that I don't like how the stories display since the new update - it used to show a nice overview in attractive italic text of most of the story and now it shows maybe 3 big words and doesn't look as attractive at all4 votes
Many thanks for this feedback. We do agree that this part of the update requires further work. We’ll ask our designers to get on it and let you know when an update might be available.

It would be great if you can make and order videos....just an idea4 votes
Hi! Thanks for the suggestion. What format would you ideally like this video in? As a DVD or some other portable format?
Thanks for the feedback!
Hi! Would you be able to make the app able to turn into landscape mode to make typing easier?4 votes
Hi Judit! Thanks so much for the suggestion. We’ll add it to our backlog for sure and keep an eye on the number of votes.

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.4 votes
Thanks a lot, Pedro. We’re working on ways for you to do bulk uploads of content while still being able to add tags and descriptions to items in progress. We’ll keep you posted!
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.4 votes
Thanks very much for the suggestion. Do you imagine that they would always appear? Or they might appear when you put the mouse over an image in the timeline?
Great that you made the flow in the web version scrolling from top to bottom!
I would like to have the possibility to click like in the flow and and comments without click the big image.4 votes
Hey Stefan. We LOVE this idea. Let’s ask others to vote on it and if it gets some traction we’ll definitely look to prioritise.

Hi, Ed! Thanks a lot for this and sorry for the delay in responding. This is definitely a feature we’d like to add in the future, and we will update here when we have it.
Thanks for your patience in the meantime!
Instead of having a set "12 weeks" or "day one" you should be able to edit this.3 votes
Thanks a lot, Jake. What ideally would you like to be able to edit these to?
Thanks for the feedback!
I'm just fascinated with this app but pleaseee let us choose the thumbnail we want for each day! thanks!3 votes
Hi! So glad you’re enjoying lifecake :-)
Are you using it on your iPhone? And would you ideally like to be able to drag a photo (or video or story) and put it at the front of the day?
Send an email notification of the baby's birthday to all the members of a specific account. A choice of gifts could also be included.2 votes
Thanks so much for this great idea, and so sorry for the delay in responding, Judith! We are definitely planning to do exactly that. And we’ll keep you posted :-)
As I put in more pictures and videos, I'm noticing that many are being put in the bottom row (hidden) until I click on it. Can you look into making a Calendar view by Month/Year to make things easier to find? Maybe make 1 picture the cover of the day in the month.. ?2 votes
Hi, David! So sorry for the delay in responding – this one slipped through the net. Are you referring to our Website version?
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!2 votes
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 :-)
I would love to share the Lifecake imagery and video with a variety of different friend/family groups in my life, but it would be more appropriate for their communication streams to be separate.
I saw another person on the forum ask if you could hide comments so that one one person didn't have to see the comments of another family member/friend. Having seperate circles could be another way to meet that need. The two people that don't get along would never be in the same circle.2 votes
Hi, Lawrence! Thanks for the suggestion.
Do you see a username as better so you don’t have to give your email address?
The reason we didn’t introduce usernames originally was because we got feedback from customers that they didn’t want to have to remember yet another username (as well as a password) for a service. With an email, it’s much easier to remember.
So it would be good to understand your thoughts on how this would make things easier for people.
separate the comments so that only the ones applicable for a specific child is shown? in other words the comments for the unticked child di1 vote
Hi! So sorry for the delay in responding.
Are you referring to the ’What’s New’ area in our apps or Website? And ideally you’d like those comments to be filtered when you filter the timeline for children?
I currently tag and star my photos in Photoshop elements and then upload into Flickr where I put the best photos into sets. Would be great if you could import these. (> 3 stars = lifecake favourite?) I currently use Photobox's Flickr integration to import sets into their albums for printing. 1-1 mapping between sets and albums makes it easy for me to find photos to print.1 vote
Thanks, Jon! Part of our mission is to save people time, so we will definitely have a think about how we can inherit the work you do elsewhere when you import content, as long as those services share that information. (Unfortunately some apps are not so generous. We’ve seen quite a few apps that delete titles and dates from photos when exporting :-(
Just to show you that we’re already thinking as you do, when you use our Desktop Uploader (available for free from our Website), if you drag in folders from your computer, we automatically tag content with the name of that folder. So, for example, if you drag in a folder called ‘Spain holiday’ to upload, we will tag all those photos with ‘Spain holiday’, so you can find them easily in lifecake.
We’ll let you know when we have anything updated on this!
We have Lifecake accounts for both our son and our cousin's son, and every time we upload a picture we need to select which child it is for. Since we only upload pics for our son (and just view our cousin's son's account every now and then), it would be great if there were an option to make our son the default so we don't need to select him each time we upload.1 vote
Thanks a lot, Samantha. Sorry for the delay in responding.
We are looking into this, and we’ll update here when we have more information.
The font used for the "Story" feature doesn't match the beautiful aesthetic of the rest of the site. It looks underdeveloped. I recommend changing the font, or allowing users to specify a font and a color.1 vote
Thanks! We’ll look into this and get back to you.
Perhaps add a last initial to the name for a member that is commenting on a photo when there are duplicate names on one account.
For example I have an Aunt Mary and a Grandma Mary. When either of them comments or likes a photo, it just says 'Mary commented on a new photo.' So it can be tricky to figure out which Mary had left a message. Is it possible to add a last initial--Mary R ?? Or maybe when a new member accepts an invite and they have a duplicate name, they could be prompted to type how they could be identified--'Aunt Mary' for example. I have to say though, my entire family ADORES lifecake :) thank you lifecake team!!1 vote
This is a really interesting idea, Christina! We’ll have a think about how we can do this.
In the meantime, if you get the latest version of lifecake from the App Store, if you tap on the ‘Share with Family’ section, you can then see all your family. If you tap on one of them – maybe Grandma Mary – you can give them a nickname. Only you will see this, but it might at least help you distinguish the two for the time being!
Thanks for the great idea – we’ll get back on this one.
