  2. Add the possibility of disabling a child for future photos.

    If I have more than one child I always get the question when adding a photo which of my children are in the photo. But I would like to have the option of removing a child from this choice. I don't want to delete the past images of that child but I'm not going to add any more photos of that child so I'd like to not get the question every time I add a new photo.

  3. make it possible to change orientation upside down on iOS

    "It would be a lovely enhancement if you could have Lifecake change orientation when I turn my iPad upside down. I often do this when I have the charging cord plugged in."

  4. allow sorting by month.

    When I try to scroll back to earlier years, Lifecake often crashes. If I could specify what month/year I want to view, perhaps the site wouldn't have to load so many hundreds of photos and burn itself out.

  5. General information regarding photo books

    I love your app, and I like how easy it is to share photos with my family and how nice it is to have all of my photos organized so easily. Today I went to do my first photo album and was really disappointed in the photo album function of this app. You can't do any cute back grounds or organize photos differently or write much to customize the photo book. Furthermore, your cost for a photo book is much more expensive than other sites. I want to see you succeed because I love your app and would love to…

  7. Order prints from the Lifecake Web

    ''As a user of Lifecake, I would like to be able to shop from the website, so that I can buy things on my computer instead of my mobile phone.

    If you can do it, I can't find it.''

  8. Show children side by side at same age

    Hi
    It would be great if I could show the timelines of both of my children side-by-side, so I can see photos of each at the same age, even though they are 4 years apart. Or filter by child age or something so the timeline shows photos in child age order rather than in date order. I want to see what my daughter looked like at age 1 next to my son at the same age.

  9. Swipe down on a photo to close the detail view

    This seems pretty much standard for all apps that have a photo detail view nowadays, so consider adding the ability to swipe down on a photo to close it and go back to the timeline.

  10. 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.

  12. Enable thumbprint login

    Please could you make your LOGIN process simpler and easier? Nearly every
    app I have allows for a thumbprint login. This would be the most ideal.
    Yours requires a "magic link" every single time I want to login. It's
    tedious. It makes me not want to use your app and I am strongly considering
    being done with this app.

  13. Give parents ability to turn off emails/notifications to specific people!

    Give primary account holder (parent) ability to select who gets notifications and emails so not all people get them.
    Also- only send 1 notification email per day NOT per addition, comment or like

  14. Add settings options to the Flashback function

    Add settings options to the Flashback function. Personally not a fan of the zoom and pan animation. A simple transition to the next image would be way better

  15. Be able to see how many people viewed a photo or video if they selected it

    I would like to see how many people viewed or played back a video/photo I posted. This gives me an idea of what to post in the future. This would only work if someone clicked on the image or photo.

  17. Change permissions assigned to family and friends

    The parent should be able to limit who adds photos or videos, because you may want some people to be able to view and comment but not be able to upload stuff.

    Hello,

    We wanted to give you an update on this suggestion and we think we owe you a bit of an apology on this matter. As we have been looking into this further, it seems that we were a little over ambitious with our original estimate of when we might be able to deliver it.

    To be honest we have been working really hard and since we became part of the Canon family not everything we have planned to be developed went in accordance to our expectations.

    We definitely do want to add this feature and we acknowledge a lot of our users would like to see it built into Lifecake and we can assure you that we’ll get it onto our roadmap, just as soon as we have the time and the resources to build it.

    Many thanks for your patience and loyalty.

    Ed & the Lifecake Team.

  18. Create photo books automatically based on "favorited" photos.

    Allow users to select an option when creating photo books that includes year (which you already offer) and "favorites." The favorites option would automatically create a photo album with all the photos that have been "favorited" by you or family/friends who have joined the album. Since I have uploaded so many photos and spent time favoriting certain photos, it only makes sense to offer this convenient customization feature as an option.

  20. Link to Facebook contacts

    Link to Facebook contacts so you can invite family and friends whose email address you do not have.
