    • 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!

      • Make some family viewers only

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

          • 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?

              Hello,

              Currently this feature is not planned however should there by any changes, we’ll notify you right away.

              Have a great day,
              The Lifecake team.

            • 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!
              Liam

                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 :-)

                  • Allow choosing a cover photo for videos

                    What happens is, when I upload a video, the app randomly chooses a cover photo to display as the “thumbnail” for my video. The problem is, it’s not always the best photo of my baby or not an accurate representation of the theme of the video. It’d be best if we could choose a still image to choose as the representative of the full video. Thank you

                    BTW thank you for bringing us this app for our children. It’s brilliant!

                        • give the possibility to remove Favorite button

                          So that child doesnt have to see how many favorites each picture has when he or she looks at them in retrospect.

                                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.

                                • Less security measures

                                  Lifecake as it functions right now is very challenging for my non-techy relatives. There are so many security measures and when they try to use multiple devices to login it confuses them even more. I have been wasting tons of time resigning up for them but because we're in different cities it messy with their devices. No one is going to hack into a photo sharing app so I think it's all overkill. Please work to make Lifecake more user friendly. I love the concept because it's so much more simple for the person uploading photos but way too complicated…

                                    • Ajouter des fonctionnalités de rangement et classement photos en premium

                                      Lorsque l'on devient premium, il faudrait ajouter des fonctionnalités. Par exemple, pouvoir ajouter des # pour retrouver ensuite toutes les photos d'une même thématique à âge différent (#nouvelledent / .#repas / #anniversaire #vacances #peinture ....) et pouvoir taguer les différentes personnes sur les photo.
                                      Il sera alors beaucoup plus simple de retrouver nos photos et d'en profiter ! Car plus bébé grandit plus il est difficile de s'y retrouver !
                                      De plus, ça facilitera grandement la création des albums photos dédiés à certaines personnes en particulier (en récupérant uniquement les photos où ces personnes figurent).
                                      A minima, ce serait bien…

                                      • 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.

                                        • Flip image

                                          Please add an ability to flip the image vertically or horizontally. Some phones with selphie cameras do not flip image correctly, it would be a great option that after upload you could flip it.
