          Hi Sanna,
          We used to have to Google import on iOs and recently took it off the app as Google didn’t maintain their iOS sdk for more than 4 years and it was causing more bugs than successfully import pictures.
          If google update their sdk in the near future, we will for sure add it back on Lifecake.

              Have a great day,

                  Hello, many thanks for your feedback.

                  We sure understand the excitement to share your child’s photos with your loved ones, and to be able to get connected to other families :) However at Lifecake, we believe the parent/s should have the full control over who sees their baby’s photos. This is why we have decided to create a 100% private platform where you cannot search for a family / baby but can only be invited to get connected to a baby.
                  If there is a Lifecake that you would like to be connected to, please contact the parent/s so that they can send you an invitation.

                  Please let us know if you have further questions or feedback.
                  Have a great day,
                  The Lifecake Team

                  It would be a lot easier to add family members that way

                    Hi, Samantha! Thanks so much for the suggestion.

                    To keep Lifecake secure we don’t share links to Facebook or other social networks, but there is an option for any photo to share that photo itself to Facebook (from our Website, iOS and Android apps).

                    Hope this helps!

                  • Create an iOS app and a screensaver that will display photos from Lifecake automatically

                    Hey ! Thx for this.
                    It would be nice to have an iOS App and a screensaver for OS X that would be able to get pictures from Lifecake automatically and display them in different formats (as in std OS X Screensaver)

                        Hi, Alessandro. So sorry for the delay in responding.

                        We’ve decided not to do this, as our customers generally ask for the fastest possible upload and we think adding more settings might only confuse people.

                        Really sorry we can’t accommodate this request, but please keep the suggestions coming.

                        Have a great day!

                      • Change "Add Child" to "Add Family Member or Friend"

                        We've just added our first Lifecake for new baby Eila. Our sister turned us onto this site for her boy Bodie. Seeing the timelines mashup gives you a sense of being "present" in terms of seeing a timeline of family events for different children in a single feed.

                        This idea can be recognized far behind just a child. We are testing this theory as we have "added a child" but we named the "Child" "Leah and Ryan", us the parents of Eila. The idea is that we will use Lifecake for ourselves, the parents, to privately share our regular activities…

                          Thanks so much for the suggestion, Ryan, and so sorry for the delay in responding.

                          We have quite a few customers (and some in our team) who create Lifecakes for family members who are not children. But for now we are staying focused on children, as there is so much more we want to do. But there is certainly no stopping people using Lifecake in this way :-)

                          In terms of more granular privacy controls, we have a few suggestions on that elsewhere, and it would be greta if you could vote for those.

                          Thanks so much!

                          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.

                          • allow automatic deletion of photos from camera roll once they have been uploaded to Lifecake

                            Once the photo has been uploaded to Lifecake I do not require it to be kept on my camera roll as this is simply a duplication of the same content which takes up phone memory.

                            I auto-sync my camera roll to Flickr and currently I have to manually delete the photos uploaded to Lifecake. I have no clear way of identifying which photos I have already uploaded from within the camera roll.

                            When you use a USB stick from a camera, you are always given the option to delete the photos on the memory card, once they have been uploeded…

                              Hi, Ross! Thanks for the suggestion.

                              Unfortunately Apple don’t allow developers to delete photos or videos from the camera roll. So we’d be unable to do this, although we can certainly understand the desire.

                              But if Apple changes their mind, we would certainly look at this again.

                              Please keep the suggestions coming!

                                My request is to make life cake available for older systems. Why are you shutting them out with the latest upgrade?

                                  Rather than having the most recent first which is great if you just wanna show recent photos but if want to show story of life then the oldest photo should be first.

                                    Hi! Thanks a lot for taking the time to write to us.

                                    We’ve spoken with lots of customers on this, and the consensus was that people preferred to see the most recent first.

                                    Sorry we can’t accommodate this, but thanks a lot for taking the time to write us and please keep the suggestions coming!

                                    Have a great day :-)

                                    I'd like to be able to email photos to a specific email address and have them appear in my child's timeline.

                                      This is a great service!

                                      Is there any chance you could write an export plugin for Adobe Lightroom. I'm sure photographers are drawn to a service like this and a direct export from the most popular enthusiast editing software would make the upload process much easier.

                                      Keep up the good work!

                                        Hello,

                                        This would indeed be a great feature to add however it is currently not on our roadmap.

                                        Have a great day,
                                        The Lifecake team.

                                        Please Consider making a application for the Macbook. in Retina dislay. I really want to sync the timeline everywhere, and i would pay for it for the macbook, and i know a couple of people who would do the same! what do you think
