    • Batch edit photos

      Would love the ability to batch edit photos (especially to modify the child/children in those photos and the date taken). Sometimes I post photos on Facebook a few days later than when they are taken, so I'd like to be able to change the date for those photos on Lifecake quickly.

      Love your program!

      • Keep doing great job

        My wife and I have been using the app for about 3 years I think, and it's amazing, we both love it.

        You are doing great job and your product it's the best thing for parenting.

            Thank you for your suggestion! If you could contact us on support@lifecake.com – we would be happy to merge your accounts into one so that you can have all the children under one account.

            Hi,

            is there a way to switch languages in LC? I don't seem to be able to find it if there is.

            Interestingly enough the mails I receive from LC are actually held in German while the website is all in English.

            Thanks for your help,
            /a

                Bonjour, le Francais est désormais disponible sur Lifecake, mais parfois l’erruer est humaine donc n’hésitez pas à nous contacter si vous voyez des améliorations à apporter!

                It would be great if you could use this to create a Printable time line album.

                • allow ordering of individual prints of photos from Lifecake

                  Would be great if there were a way to order individual prints of photos from the Lifecake app and have them shipped directly to you.

                  The Lifecake creators could do this a bunch of ways - like by integrating the Walgreens API or working with a company like Shutterfly.

                    Hi Janet! Thank you for this suggestion. We are starting to hear this same point more and more frequently. So we have a team looking at how we best do this from both an infrastructure and user experience perspective. We’ll keep you posted.

                  • make deleting more then one photo

                    I wanna first say I LOVE this app. It's great because we have family who dosnt use Facebook so it's great they can see my son grow. I would like to suggest when you want to delete photos that you can delete more than one at a time and after deleting it stays at the point you are at, instead of going all the way back to the beginning and have to find your way back to the section. Thank you!!!

                      The app would be awesome on a big screen in landscape. Currently it shows up facing the wrong way.

                        Hey Benjamin! Thanks for the feedback. Earlier this month we released an update with an initial Chromecast extension. We’d love your (and others) feedback on how we can improve this feature.

                      • Surface Old Content

                        I'd love to see a simple 'old content' feature when I log into Lifecake ~ perhaps even a little like Timehop? (http://timehop.com/)

                        In the early days, it could be previous days or throwbacks to pre-birth photos, and then as the weeks and months roll on, you could do some great 'throw back' resurfacing.

                        Perhaps it's already in the works?

                        • Allow multiple accounts in app

                          to be able to view the images of accts you've been invited to in your app. Eg I have my son in my app but would be good to be able to view the lifecake of my sister's kids from an initial navigation page. Unless you can do this already of course...!

                            Hi, Candy! So sorry for the delay in responding, but the good news is that this is available now.

                            You can view your child(ren)’s Lifecake(s), but also those of others. As long as people share with you using the same email address that you already use in Lifecake, then you can see all children at once (and filter which you want to see at any time).

                            Please email us at support@lifecake.com if you have any trouble!

                          • Offer Calendar Printing too

                            In addition to photo books, offering Calendars would be nice too!

                                A simple drag option to change to order of photos in a slideshow would be great, as would an option to simply show them in date order.

                                  Hi, Lisa-Jayne! Is this on the iPhone for music slideshows? If so, once you’ve selected your images and are on the ‘Edit’ screen, if you tap-and-hold an image with your finger for a few seconds, you’ll be able to then move that image around to re-order it.

                                  If this isn’t what you mean, please let us know!

                                    I love Lifecake. I've introduced it to friends and family with kids and they love it too.
                                    I'm about to start a nanny share with a friend; 1 nanny looks after both babies together. I'd like a digital diary where the nanny can log and share headlines of the day; activities, accidents, what they ate, naps & ideally pic of the babies too. I want it to be secure. I want to be able to invite people - my husband, my nanny, the other child's parents to use it too. I don't want or need anyone else to access the…

                                      Hi Lucie! You absolutely can use Lifecake for this – my wife and I have this very set-up with our child minder. You’ll see that we have a ‘story’ function within the apps where any parent/relative/family member or nanny can write anything they wish. Thanks, Ed

                                        Hi! Yes – from any of our mobile or tablet clients and from web you can share a photo to Facebook. Hope this helps! Ed

                                      • I really appreciate a company with the insight to develop a feature like that

                                        Just met Lifecake tonight in response to an invitation from a relative and fellow Mom. So far, I am impressed and, after trying it out initially, see myself signing up for the unlimited storage at some point. One thing in particular that I like (in addition to the not sharing/selling our info and content, and advertising) is the "handbrake" feature. I SO wish Facebook had something like that. I've been wanting to leave them for so long, but all of my photo and video albums with their captions, dates, and etc are on there. I feel trapped and frustrated. Not…

                                          So glad you are enjoying Lifecake, Kendra!

                                          We use Lifecake with our own families’ memories, and we know how precious they are. We always strive to make sure our customers have complete control and can do with it exactly what they want to, even if that is to move to another service at any point.

                                          If you ever have any suggestions or questions for us, please let us know. In the meantime, enjoy!

                                          Nick, from the Lifecake team

                                        • improve your timeline design (how many times do I need to suggest this?)

                                          Please just display all photos in the timeline - none of this ridiculous 'minor' photos below that one then doesn't notice.
                                          Such a primitive way of displaying photos - I wish my daughter would switch to a website that is more user friendly, where ALL photos are just in a grid and there is no limit of how many photos can be uploaded per day.
                                          Sorry, but it's not working as you have it at the moment and on mobile is even worse (can't even see the photos in a timeline, only per day)

                                            Hi. Thanks for your suggestion.

                                            If you go to m.lifecake.com, there is a ‘Sign in’ button in the top right. If you enter your email and password you will get a grid of every photo and video.

                                            Have a good day.
