  1. "Download All" should download EVERYONE'S content

    Currently, "download all" only gives me the photos/video that I contributed... but I would like to archive everyone's content, not just my own. I would also like this to include the stories/comments.

    • AirPlay and Casting integration

      It would be great if the app integrated with AirPlay and casting for Google Chromecast. The ability to view videos and photos on your home tv makes for a great family viewing experience. Our son loves watching the videos of him, but watching them on the phone is such a small experience. Being able to view them on a large screen tv would be great.

      If there was a way to AirPlay or cast Flashbacks that would be a great way to view your child's progress. It's also an easy way to put pictures of your child at their birthday…

      • Sincronizzazione automatica con il cellulare

        Sarebbe ottimo che le foto si sincronizzassero in automatico con l'app foto del cellulare e non solo doverle scaricare di volta in volta con un massimo di 10 foto alla volta. Un po' come google foto che attraverso il Wi-Fi si sincronizza con il cellulare e ti permette di salvarle, però in più sfrutteresti il bello del timeline

        • Choose who can download content and who cannot

          It would be nice to be able to select who is able to download content and who cannot. For example, I would like to select which users can download the entire library and individual images. This would be very useful as some viewers of my library I dont want having complete access to download the library

          • Compare baby photos from the same age

            I use Lifecake for my baby, and one of my friends uses Lifecake for her baby. It would be very fun if there were an option to display our kids' Lifecake photos according to their ages in the photos as opposed to displaying them according to the date the photo was taken. That way, I'd have the option of seeing photos of my baby girl at 3 months old next to the pics of her baby at 3 months old. Adding this as an option would be really great. (I imagine families with multiple children would also love this option…

            • Download photos for a specific period

              Can we download the photos for a selected period only? Since I look from the site that we can either download each photo individually or all, but not for a selected period.

              • Compare two children at the same age

                Compare two children at the same age. For example, compare my older sons photos from when he was one month old to our younger sons one month old photo. I love time travel feature you have and think this would be an even more awesome improvement!

                              • Allow the ability to download a selection of photos

                                Rather than only being allowed to download all photos or download one by one, I'd like to be able to download a selection of photos. If we take a trip and I want to download only pictures from the trip, or I go through and select all the pictures with our family dog that I want to download, etc., this would be a great feature to have.

                                  I would highly suggest to add a photo-calculator feature on your app since you offer albums of ~80 pages and one photo per page..

                                  • Support for animated gifs (like auto awesome from google plus)

                                    We backup all photos (including non child) to Google Plus, and sometimes it creates sweet and beautiful animated photos. I tried to upload to Lifecake and the preview during uploaded was animated, but then once added the gif became static.

                                    Gifs are a standard format already supported by all browsers and mobile phones, please preserve the format for lifecake photos.

                                      Hey Eddie. Thanks for the feedback. We definitely could support animated gifs – it is really just a question of where we focus our resources. We’ll keep an eye on the number of votes this gets and shall keep you posted.

                                    • Change the default notification setting

                                      Lifecake's default notification should NOT automatically assume each profile wants to see every picture and comment that is uploaded for each child. This is completely asinine. Your notification instantly becomes trash in my eyes because you do nothing but spam my email inbox.
