  1. Upload to Lifecake from Google photos - Android

    ''I have tried a few different things and have been able to upload the photos
    from my dslr directly from my computer via the browser. On my phone I was
    trying to share to life cake from Google photos when it didn't work so I
    think this is where the problem lies. There isn't an option in life cake
    app to upload from Google photos, the photos would need to be in my phone's
    memory I believe. The error message is "it was not possible to share these
    moments " I was trying to share a single photo.
    I've been…

  4. Show which photos have already been uploaded

    Please bring back the feature that shows you the photos you have already added when uploading new photos from iOS. Without this feature, it is all too easy to upload duplicates.

  6. 'Hide' the wording "Discover our new print products!" from the heading of every message.

    When I see a message from you in the inbox on my iPhone I see who it's from, e.g. "Steffy commented on Joshua Michael's timeline", but then I get two lines of advertising saying "Discover our new print products!"
    This means that I have open the message to read what Steffy has said.
    I think that it is possible for you to "hide" all of the opening text [inside some sort of picture frame?] so that the iPhone message preview shows the opening words of what Steffy has said. Then I can choose to see the whole message (with advertising…

  7. Ever-present notification icon in new iOS app

    Ever since the new update I can't check my notifications, even though it says I have some (red dot over the bell). Please fix this!

    Hi
    So sorry for the trouble. This should now have been fixed so we’d love to hear from your at support@lifecake.com if that is not the case. It was tied to a bug that prevented your access to What’s New view. Please do let us know if you still have issues here.

    Many thanks,
    The Lifecake team.

  8. Disable the App to ask the last taken photos

    the app constantly asks me to add photo after I have taken new photo with my phone, so annoying

  10. Play video sounds on mute

    ''Videos in my phone's photo album play based on the volume on the phone and aren't tied to the ringer. In fact, most apps play based on the sound volume.

    Maybe you could put an in app toggle on the settings page to allow videos to play with sound while on vibrate/mute mode? ''

  11. Allow users to set specific start and end dates for a book instead of just the months

    ''Please add the option to retrieve more pictures for a photobook. I set the months that I wanted to see, but it did not retrieve everything that I expected it to. I created my book only to get to the end and discover that I was missing pictures. Now I have to start over and create a whole new book because I can't edit the current one. A waste of time.
    Please allow user to set the specific start and end dates of a book instead of just the months.''

  12. Offering multiple quality choices for the photobook

    You would be better offering multiple choices (i.e SD as well as HD) for those who cannot afford it. Do you think you would consider offering different options?

    Hi Linda. So sorry for the confusion on this. It was a mistake – where you’re NOT a parent in Lifecake, you should only be asked for Camera Roll access IF you initiate the upload flow. We are fixing this and it will be released in the next 2 weeks.

    In the mean time, please do note that by granting us permission, it just allows us to display your photos in ‘select view’ should you wish to upload a photo/video. It you don’t trigger this action (selecting the + button) we don’t touch or look at your pics at all …and we don’t have an auto-upload function in Lifecake, so no danger there either.

    Sorry for the trouble.
    Ed & the Lifecake team.

  14. Allow users to start with empty photobooks

    Ideally, I would like to build a book from scratch. I would like to move photos one by one into the book. As currently configured, the book appears to populate all photos and I need to delete those I do not want.

  15. don't like new look of website

    I am really not enjoying the new look of the website. I'm not sure if it is on a mobile view setting or something but the photos seem hidden and it doesn't show such a vibrant, fun timeline as before. I joined life cake because I loved how simple it was, I feel it is a real shame that it has changed and am finding it hard to use the site now.

  16. Reading comments

    Hello since the most recent update I am unable to read family and friends comments on photos/videos. I can only read the majority of the comments if I go to the notifications tab. Any thoughts on why this is happening???

  19. Able to order photo book/photos from the App

    Be able to create your photo book (or even prints) using the app from your phone.
    I do not have a computer to create a photo book on, I'm sure others are in the same boat too. Plus, it would be easier! :)

  20. Add 'Replay' function for videos on iOS

    ''Replay' control is NOT present anymore.
    Now, if user wants to replay video on Tablet he must click on 'Done' button first and then play this video again. ''
