  1. 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.

      • Improve Web Uploader Stability

        When uploading images, the uploader often stalls then fails. Usually I'm uploading using the website on the Chrome browser. Testing of my internet connection shows that I have a 2Mbps upload speed when the uploader has failed. Please improve the stability of the website uploader.

        • have the option to view the age of the child or the date of the photo on the website as is possible in the android app

          I really like lifecake and especially like the fact that you can have the age of the child rather than the date of the photo in the app. However, it is disappointing that this is not possible on the website which is the only platform that many family members use. This makes it harder for them to see how old the child is in each photo and see how much they've changed. It would be great if the website functioned like the app in showing either the age of the child or the date the photo was taken. Seeing how…

            Hey Gemma. Thanks so much for the feedback. You are completely right – we’re missing a big trick not making more of a child’s age in the web timeline.

            So, we’re in the middle of a big update to fix that. It should be ready in the next month.

            Thanks,
            Ed

          • Different Notification Settings Per Child

            Have a different setting for every child following. I have started following a friend's child in addition to my own. I like being notified daily about things for my child, but only want the weekly update for my friend's child. Can we have notification settings be different for every child?

            • Add expected date of birth and actual date of birth

              My baby was born 2 weeks before his due date. Now all the pre birth pictures and notes are off by 2 weeks. If I fix that part then his after birth pictures are off by 2 weeks :(. I think this is a must solve. I love the app and use it all the time but if this doesn't get fixed I might need to look for something else.

                Hi.

                Sorry for the delayed response on this. It has been a much needed feature. It is now available on Android – you can set your gestation period – and we’ll be brining the same over to iOS and Web very soon.

                Thanks for your patience.

              • Replace Kid with Child

                Hi there,

                I really love Lifecake. I have introduced it to all the women in my NCT group and beyond and they too are fans. It is a lifesaver for remote in-laws who don't get to see their grandchild as often as they would like. And, for me, as a UX type professional I love the fact that the photos are mine not yours.

                The interface is excellent. I mainly use the app. I have nothing but praise except for the fact that it says 1 Kid. I would much prefer child.

                I accept that this may be a question…

                  Hi Ivanka

                  Sorry for the delayed response. We completely agree with you and will be swapping out the use of ‘kid’ for ‘child’ as we update the product.

                  Thanks so much for the feedback.

                • Add multiple shipping addresses for photo books.

                  There is only one option for billing / shipping so I had to order a photo book to my house which I will then have to ship to someone else. This doesn't make sense, and is too time consuming. Plus with the holiday's it may not make it in time. what if I wanted to order the same book to several people?... would be nice to add this feature. It's pretty basic after all.

                  • Show all the names of people who have loved a moment as in mine it shows a few names of family members and not everyone?

                    Currently if a photo is liked, if several people have loved it, it shows up as eg;
                    John, jack, kate, richa.....
                    Yet there are several other people who have loved a moment and it doesnt show up?

                      Hello,

                      We are very sorry for the delayed response on this. We are aware of this issue on our iOS Apps and we are working on a new design for Lifecake now – which will also fix this issue.

                      Thank you for your feedback.

                    • Photoframe mode

                      Hi,
                      Really like the app, great idea and nice and simple to use! One thing I think would be nice would be the ability to view all the photos full screen automatically, as you would on a digital photo frame, and not just for tablets - I'd use it on my tablet at home but on my phone at work while docked on my desk.
                      Keep up the good work!
                      Liam

                        Hi, Liam! So sorry for the delay in responding.

                        Last year we had a slideshow feature – when you shake your iPhone or iPad – but we will be improving this in the next weeks. And we’ll update you here when it’s in the App Store and it would be great to get your feedback :-)

                      • Add the # (hashtag) system

                        It would be great if you could implement the # feature so as to be able to keep photos organized by # such as #location, #event, #holiday, #familynames, etc..

                          Thanks for the great suggestion, David!

                          You can currently tag things on our Website and we’ll be adding that to our search soon. And we’ll be adding more tagging and searching in other apps soon. We want you to be able to relive any moment with your family and kids in seconds. So stay tuned!

                        • Enable Facebook/Google/Twitter login

                          It's always a pain to ask people to create new user accounts. Any chance you can integrate these services for account creation/authorization?
