  1. animated preview of videos like googleplus or facebook

    When I selected which videos to upload from googleplus, the previews were animated. Now that they're uploaded, the preview thumbnails are all static... I have to click play to see them move.

    I liked seeing the many animated thumbnails at once.
    Make this happen in the timeline too.

    See google plus or facebook for examples.

    Hi Daniel! This is a great idea. We’d love to offer this functionality within our apps. We’ll start investigating how we can best make this happen. Have a great day! Ed

  2. I would like to see the timeline label move along chronologically by Baby's age

    Instead of having the timeline label be based on how many days or weeks ago the photo was uploaded, it would be more helpful to be labeled according to Baby's age as of the date of the photo (i.e. two weeks old, one month old, 6 weeks old, one year old, etc.).

  3. Change the "Story" Font

    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.

  4. Slideshow on iPad

    It would be great if the slideshow option was also available on the iPad version of the App.

  5. 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.
    The Lifecake Team

  6. Give admins control over notification defaults

    The admin (me) should set up the notification defaults for people whom I add. My mom and dad and other elderly relatives aren't technologically savvy, and so when I add them, they'll get notifications on their smartphones as well as an email. I know them well enough to know that they don't want both, so it would be kind of nice if I could remotely set their notification preferences with an understanding that they could make changes if they decided to figure out how to do that.

  8. Upload order is backwards

    when uploading photos, it would be very helpful if the order of photos within Lifecake were the same as on my iPhone's camera roll.

    Hi! We’ve had a lot of debate about this within the team …and a lot of talking with mums and dads. The overall consensus was that, for speed and convenience purposes, it makes sense for the newest moments to be found at the top. However, let’s see how popular this point is and whether we need to revisit our thinking here. Thanks, Ed

  10. add an date range / event timeline bar

    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...

    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 :-)

  11. Allow changing/editing of "days, weeks and months"

    Instead of having a set "12 weeks" or "day one" you should be able to edit this.

  12. File sizes

    I would like to be able to upload larger file sizes. I have videos of my parents reading books to my LO and I would like to up load those videos, but they are between 10-20 mins long.

  13. Build a share app extension for iOS

    To simplify adding recently taken photos to your child's lifecake there should be an option to share photos to lifecake from the iOS photo share menu.

  14. Slideshow with music is great but...

    every song I selected was copyright . Can you filter so only available songs are shown?

    Hi Jim! Thanks for the suggestion – it makes total sense and we’ll definitely investigate whether this is possible with a workaround. Today, we’re allowed access to the music you have in iTunes and we’re only given the copyright alert once you make your selection.

    Thanks,
    Ed

  15. Have the ability to provide "titles" for particular dates

    Appreciate that at the moment we can title pictures but what about labeling key dates: 1st Christmas, 1st Birthday, 1 Day at School, Trip to the zoo etc etc.

  17. comments

    It would be nice if user could configure comments to show when in the timeline view instead of having to drill into a particular photo. Maybe when mouse over comment icon on desktop or touch pic on mobile devices.

    Hi Jim! Thanks a lot for this. It’s a really interesting idea that could certainly have a place on the bigger screen – tablets, computer. We’re unable to tackle it now but let’s see how it gets on in the voting.

  18. Be able to show the slideshow in landscape mode on iPhone

    I was showing the slideshow on our TV via apple TV and I could only show the pictures in Portrait mode. The pictures were so small on the TV because the were taken in Landscape but showing as if I was viewing them on my phone. The only showed on about 1/4 of my entire TV screen.

  19. Add a setting to upload only on wifi

    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 finished

    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.

    Hi, Emma! Thanks a lot for this.

    Currently when you import content into our apps – from the phone, tablet, computer or Web accounts – we automatically put moments into your child(ren)’s timeline(s) at the right date. Is this what you mean?

    We do sometimes face issues with detecting the date the moment was captured, as many apps remove or alter this data. Which is frustrating.

    Please let us know a bit more about what you’re suggesting, and we’ll get right back to you.

    Thanks!
