''Trying to create a photobook. I understand that I cannot do it from my Iphone but can I use a laptop? I do not own a desk top computer...I really like Lifecake but the poor photobook options is one of the reasons I may not continue to use it :( Help!''1 vote
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 -- being able to see kid A and kid B at the same age would be fun!)

When uploading new memories, i miss the function to edit them with a title while uploading. Now i have to upload all and then click on each memory to add a title. That ends up with no title, because Im to lazy doing that after I waited for the upload to be finished.
Can you please add that feature again.7 votes
Hi Stefan. We are working on putting this view back into the app. It should be available within the next month.
Ed & the Lifecake team.
I'm loving the new update. I like the fact that the STORY posts show the TITLE of the story on the iOS apps, but I wish the TITLE for the STORY posts appeared that way on the website. Instead, it shows the first few words of the STORY instead of the title.
I just think it should be consistent to the mobile app.1 vote
Hi Chris. Thanks so much for raising this point. This is a bug that our team will fix this week. The behaviour should be exactly as you state.
Sorry for the trouble,
Ed & the Lifecake team
I think you should be able to select which children Coke up in your newsfeed. I have other people's children on my life cake and enjoy being able to see them, but find it frustrating that you can not select to only view only my child. Simple to do and would be much better.7 votes
Really good point and one we’re working on to address. Would you expect to be able to filter by ‘my children’ and ‘other children’ OR would you want more granular control and select which children show in the feed?
I suggest you add the tag search, and description search37 votes
In the app, you can see how old the child is in each picture, but on the web version (atleast using Google Chrome) you can only see dates on the timeline (and how many days, weeks, months ago the picture was taken when you enlarge it). It would be really good to include the automatically calculated age tile in the web version too.4 votes
Hey Marc! Thanks for your thoughts on this. We completely agree and will shortly be refreshing our web view where age of your child will be made very visible.

It would be really helpful to have some, at least basic, editing tools. Priority one would be a cropping tool, number two a quick setting for turning the photo black-and-white, and then some basic contrast/light/color choices. Much easier than editing in another program first.16 votes
Hi! Thanks so much for this, and sorry for the delay. We plan to do this, and we’ll update here when it’s coming :-)
Thanks for your patience!
It would be nice to have the option of creating albums, which would be a way to organize some picture into sets of common topics.16 votes
Hi, Patrice! So sorry for the delay in responding.
We are planning a better system with tagging which will enable you to do exactly this. We will update you when we have more information.
Thanks, and have a great day!
Slideshows should be available for Android and on the website.17 votes
Hi Samantha! We cannot wait to add Flashbacks (slideshow’s new name) to Android. We plan to start building this function into the app this coming quarter. Thanks for the feedback! Ed
Make it much more noticeable in the timeline (on desktop client) that there are additional images/thumbnails hidden and clickable by the icon at the bottom of a timeline photo. AND/OR allow the option to select for all images to be shown on the timeline by default or let user choose as many as they want to be visible with the rest of the images availabe by clicking on a more OBVIOUS "more photos" icon.
amazing product by the way!

Hi, Ryan! So sorry for the long delay in responding.
We know exactly what you mean, and we want to improve our Website in this respect (and others).
We’ll update here when we have more information on this.
Thanks for your patience!
Lifecake has Swipe Right and Swipe Left reversed. This is simply annoying. Please fix.4 votes
Hi! Ed here from the Lifecake team. We agree – we got this wrong and will start working on addressing this in the next 2 weeks. An update should be available from the app store in the next 3-4 weeks.
I think it would be neat that there could be an option to make a photo book made by one family member could be seen by others if they wanted to. I have family members who have seen my photo books and wanted one like it but instead of me ordering it they could have the option to view it and order it themselves.5 votes
Hi, Samantha! So sorry for the delay, but this is planned. We’ll update here when it is coming :-)
I made a grammar edit in a comment, and I would like to be able to edit it.5 votes
Hi Jackie! Ed here from the Lifecake team. Thanks for the feedback – we agree this feature is much needed on Android. The good news is that we have it planned and expect to have it available as an update within 3 weeks.
We've just been on holiday. It would be great if there was a bar above the photos that indicated the holiday period. So as a user I could set start and end dates and then a label and it shows a bar to indicate the period we were away. It would be a way to show photos in a loose labelled time/event based group. Other labels might be '1st birthday' , 'Learned to walk', 'first shoes' etc these could then be searchable, and the photos could be filtered based on event...5 votes
Thanks a lot for this, Martin. We definitely want to be able to label milestones clearly in the timeline, so they’re easy to jump to and find. As we get closer we’ll reach out to see what you think of the design.
Thanks a lot for the great suggestion! Good to see we’re thinking alike :-)
To be able to choose in the settings an option to only upload photos and videos when on wifi. This would pause the upload if the wifi connection is lost , avoiding using a lot of the 4G data allowance if we go out before the upload has finished1 vote
Hi Elina. Huge apologies for this suggestion not being acted upon sooner. We had a lot of feedback on this point and so have already implemented this feature in Android and will be doing the same, soon, for iOS.

It would be great to be able to share a **subset** of photos with friends (not family).
One way to do this is through friends tag.2 votes
Thanks, Eugene! We definitely plan to add this in the future. We’ll update here when it’s coming.
Through the website you can edit a story but through the android app you cannot. It would be really great if you would change this.1 vote
Hi, Alex! Thanks a lot for this. We definitely plan to add this in the future, and we will update here when we have it.
Thanks for your patience in the meantime!
It would be great if you supported common raw files. I was hoping to use lifecake both to share and backup photos but it's much less useful if I have to convert as well as have a secondary backup to keep my originals safe11 votes
Hi Anna. Thanks for your suggestion and so sorry we’ve taken forever to respond. RAW is a format that we’d like to be able to support …we just need to work out how we’d do so from an infrastructure perspective. We’ll keep you posted.

It would be cool if we could bookmark or highlight days that have milestones such as first steps, first visit to, etc. Can that be done in the near future?10 votes
Hi! Thanks so much for the great suggestion.
We’re thinking alike :-) We have plans to create a set of milestones in a life which really stand out. And we’ll keep you posted.
We’d love to hear in the meantime if you would prefer to mark an entire day as a milestone – and highlight it as such in the timelines – or be able to highlight a specific piece of content as a milestone (e.g. a certain photo, story or video).
