  1. Creating Albums

    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.

    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!

    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

  3. Give the ability to make some pics/videos private.

    I guess it seems to defeat the purpose is you're using this awesome app to share pics/videos with family and friends. But I also like to be able to store all the pics/videos in one place. Some pics I may not necessarily want to share with everyone that can view the timeline so the option to make some pics/videos private would be great! Either way, I LOVE LifeCake!

  4. Photoframe Integration

    I recently purchased a Pix-Star Wifi photo frame for all of my family members. The beauty of the frame is that it can automatically receive updates to the frame but having the photos sent to an email address. I find that when I post to Lifecake, I often have to separately email the photos to updates the frame. It would be wonderful if posted photos could emailed and "reflected" to an address attached to a family member. It would be amazing to add this integration or suggest a way I could receive updates to a photo frame. Alternatively, if Lifecake…

    Hi, Josh! So sorry that there was a delay in responding to your suggestion.

    We’re looking into how we can enable customers to integrate into photoframes in a simple way. And we’ll update in here when we know more.

    In terms of Dropbox, you can actually import from Dropbox on your computer browser, iPhone/iPad or Android in the Lifecake app. It’s an option when you click or tap on +. Just let us know if you have any issues with this.

    Have a great day!

  5. Please make your books more customisable, with the option to include all content!

    Hi!
    I'm a big fan of the look and functionality of the LifeCake website and app! Ultimately, I'm looking to print content in a book though, so I'm still waiting on some features and hope you'll consider adding them in the future. Specifically, it'd be great if all content, including stories and comments, could be included and there was an option for multiple pictures/stories per page.
    I recently stumbled across My Social Book and would love being able to print books of a similar look from LifeCake. Do you think your books will deliver similar features in the future?

    Hi, Johana! So sorry for the delay in responding, but we’re glad you’re enjoying the app and Website.

    We do want to provide more options in our photobooks in the future for sure. Right now we’re focusing on customer requests within our app and Website, though, so we’re unsure when we will have this. But we will update this as soon as we do.

    And in the meantime, just so you know: we have an option on our Website in Settings to ‘Download all’. With this you can download all your content – in full quality and in monthly, organised folders – so you can still print books on other sites in the time being.

    Thanks for your patience and your feedback!

  6. Enable location settings

    Allow photos to be tagged by location/place. Instagram has this feature. Makes it easier to tag rather than having to describe where every picture was taken.

    Hi, Pauline. We’re so sorry this suggestion didn’t get a response.

    We’ve had a lot of thought about this as a team, and we’ve always worried that location information might seem a bit intrusive. But we’re thinking about ways we can do this so it’s totally optional and wouldn’t violate the privacy of parents or their children.

    We’ll update in there when we know more :-)

    Thanks!

  7. Allow Video Share

    We have options to share pictures or download them back to our phone but our videos have zero options. Once we upload them to your site, we can't do anything with them. Can you add a share to Facebook or YouTube feature or even download back to our phone? I'm using life cake as storage and have found that I can't get any of the video back to my phone to share with people that don't have a life cake account. Thank you!

    Hi, Tammie! So sorry for the delay in responding to this.

    To download videos, you can download all your original photos and videos via the ‘Download all’ option in Settings on our Website. Just so you know.

    But we will look at downloading individual videos and get back to you!

  8. Make some family viewers only

    Can you invite family that you want to view your content but not be able to comment on it?

  9. Photo Editing

    It would be great if there was a built in photo editor to add things such as filters and maybe stickers, a lot of companies charge for stickers so you could have a set free sticker pack and charge for other premium ones.

    It would be great to just be able to make small edits to photo's and then upload within the app itself rather than editing them in another app and then saving them and then uploading them, it would also free up space on devices...

    Hey Nick! Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking into our options to offer basic photo editing within our apps and from our web – it is definitely something we want to do.

    I’d love to know how you (and others) would like to use stickers. What type of stickers would you be most interested in?

    - Ed, the Lifecake team.

  10. Make it possible to choose the order of photos taken on the same date.

    At the moment you can't choose the order of photos taken on the same day, which is a pain. This would be a helpful improvement!

    Hi! Thanks for the suggestion and apologies for the delay in responding.

    Would your ideal scenario be that you can drag a photo to be the main one featured that day and then have the rest of the family see the same thing?

  11. Be able to search for keywords in stories instead of just titles.

    I want to search for keywords that might not be found in the title of the story.

  12. Add drag and drop to reorganise timeline photos

    So the extra shots in the drawer below the timeline can be dragged onto the timeline to replace those selected automatically. But when I drag a replacement photo from the drawer to the timeline, there is a pre-determined order that the photos are displayed in. This is actually a bit annoying! It would be far better if I could drag and drop the exact image I want from the drawer and onto the exact thumbnail where I'd like it displayed.

    We’re so sorry about the delay in responding on this, James. We are looking at our Website and looking to change quite a few things, and we’ll update here when we have a test version. We’d love to get everyone’s feedback!

  13. Manage duplicated photos uploaded from various devices

    Through our recent experience using your very beautiful application life-cake we had some ideas:

    If the program could recognize the duplicated pictures if they were uploaded from different devices and gave notification about that to prevent this issue.

    Hi, Ruaa! Thanks for the feedback.

    We’d really like to recognise duplicates in the future and make this whole process easier to manage. We don’t have a timeframe for that, but we will update here when it’s coming.

    Thanks for your patience!

  14. Provide a referral code to invite friends or share on social media

    If you want to invite friends to try out Lifecake, but don't have their email address or want to use the automated form, perhaps you could provide a unique referral code or link which they can use when signing up?

    HI, Meg! So sorry for the delay in responding to this. We’ve been thinking about your suggestion and how to make it easier to invite loved ones.

    The challenge is always balancing our need for complete security with the desire to make everything with lifecake fun and easy. The shared link is great for the latter but not as good on the former. But we will keep working on this!

    Thanks so much for the great suggestion.

  15. Enable comments to be hidden from family members who don't get along

    My family are really enjoying lifecake and love posting comments on my photos. However my parents are divorced and don't like reading each others comments.

    Could you introduce a privacy option so I could keep comments hidden from different family members, or only allow them to see my comments or their own and not each others?

  16. 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!

    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 :-)

  17. offer gift subscriptions for VIP service

    My sister just started using the service to share pictures of her child. It would be great if I could buy her a gift subscription to the VIP service.

    Thanks, Jed!

    We are planning this, as we think this will make a fantastic gift few new parents. We will let you know when this is coming, so you can try it out. We think your sister will appreciate it :-)

  18. View pictures and video in a calendar view rather than timeline

    As I put in more pictures and videos, I'm noticing that many are being put in the bottom row (hidden) until I click on it. Can you look into making a Calendar view by Month/Year to make things easier to find? Maybe make 1 picture the cover of the day in the month.. ?
